Our Story:

    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, they needed to stand out among the other repair shops. To keep up with the most recent trends in the industry, they became members of ATI, Napa AutoCare, and TechNet. They believe that educating their customers and staff is of the utmost importance.

    Today they are the highest Google reviewed shop in Blairstown, New Jersey.

Finding and hiring the right employees is time-consuming, but necessary. Their staff must be passionate about the industry and willing to excel. They are proud to be "Quality."

Celebrating 25 Years!
