The style and feel of British cars have attracted plenty of enthusiasts, for some, a British car is the only car worth driving. Our family’s love for classic British cars turned from a hobby to their livelihood. British Auto Specialists is a family-run auto shop dedicated to repairing and restoring British cars. The company was started in Okotoks in the late eighties but eventually moved to Calgary in the late nineties. Our father was a skilled mechanic and lover of British Automobiles, when he discovered the business was for sale he bought it. British Auto Specialists has remained in the family ever since and has now carried over to the younger generation, our passion, commitment, and family values have remained an integral part of our business.
“We want these cars out on the streets, being enjoyed by their owners.”
- Pat Chapman, Co-Owner

CONNECT WITH A PEOPLE-FOCUSED AUTO SHOP IN CALGARY
British Auto Specialists is definitely a customer-focused auto shop in Calgary as we offer 1-on-1 interaction services to car lovers when they want to restore or repair their cars after an accident or a collision. Usually in this situation, insurance providers strong arm the customers to go to a specific shop not knowing that they have the option to go to a trusted shop of their choosing. This situation occurs because of the disbelief that shops not determined by insurance providers are not covered by warranty, when in fact, each auto body shop carries their own warranty. That’s not all; our shop also deals with extended and after-market warranties for all makes and models of vehicles.
We are an alternative dealer of Mini, Jaguar and Land Rover. From auto logic programming to keys, we have in-house facility to provide a full diagnosis of your vehicle. Even after 15 years, British Auto Specialist continues to focus on Land Rover and Jaguar repairs. We offer dealer level services with a more personal touch. It is due to this reason that we are a staunch competition in the market. Visit us today.
