John & Denise Stanley worked at a car dealership before starting their own business. Quality Automotive opened in 1996, sharing space with a body shop and a transmission shop. Since then, they moved locations twice and hired more staff to accommodate their growing business.

    In 2009, after relocating to Blairstown, Quality Automotive needed to stand out from the other repair shops. To keep up with the most recent trends in the industry, they became members of ATI, Napa AutoCare, and TechNet.

    John and Denise believe that educating customers and staff is of the utmost importance. That's one of the reasons why Quality Automotive is the highest Google-reviewed shop in Blairstown, New Jersey. And if that wasn't enough, we have a combined 160 years of experience among staff!

    Finding and hiring the right employees is time-consuming but necessary. Quality Automotive's staff must be passionate about the industry and willing to excel. We are proud to be Quality.

Trusted since 1996
