Our Story

A story of customer service

         Mark purchased Holland Car Care in 1978 from Bob Holland. He took the business from ten clients to many thousands over the next forty years—the old fashion way, by providing exceptional service and by building trust.

Part of that experience is convenience. And that’s why we offer a shuttle service for easy transport to and from Holland, as well as rental cars, and a convenient drop box. Many of our clients use our vehicle pick up and drop off service where we will come and get your car and return it to you, right to your front door, when it’s ready. And all this at an average 20% less than dealer rates.
       Holland Car Care recently expanded from San Mateo to a second location in San Carlos. The new completely renovated 6,300-square-foot space is a state-of-the-art workplace with eight service bays and a lift. Even the design is from two-time Emmy winning graphic designer David Kervinen. We keep the entire space spotless, and we’d be happy to show you around.

        With our two convenient locations, in San Carlos and San Mateo, our experienced and fully-trained master technicians, and our dedication to excellence in service, Holland Car Care is considered the best fine automobile repair and service in the Silicon Valley. We invite you to stop by for a visit , have a cup of fresh Peet’s coffee, check out our state of the art systems, meet our team, and find out how outstanding your car care experience can be.  

Our Formula for Trust

Our technicians are true car mavens. Part mechanical wizards, part car whisperers, they absolutely love their craft. Combined, they have nearly a century of experience. As you would expect, that knowledge translates into faster, more accurate diagnosis and repair.

But unlike dealer-based service, we are not a hard sell, and will never, ever recommend or perform unneeded service. That’s knowledge and integrity. It results in trust.

Today, the grandchildren of some of our long-standing customers now bring their cars to Holland.

That’s a winning formula.

Why Select Holland Car Care?

There are many factors when considering car service. Understandably, cost is important. Knowledge, skills, time-to-completion, rental and shuttle service, location, prompt communication; these are significant too.

Our staff answering the phone actually knows about the cars, and are not just message takers with zero experience. Rarely will you find a team that strives to hit on all cylinders (pun intended), every day.

When a customer checks out with a smile on their face it really makes our day. After 40 years of experience we really do know and understand your pain.

Holland Car Care will strive to make your experience as painless as possible every step of the way.
