Operated by a predominantly female staff, with the ambitious goal of representing women in auto repair, we are here to provide any auto maintenance you may need.

It’s common for people to skip out on the maintenance and preventative care for their cars. And we think this is even more so for the women out there who just don’t want to deal with the hassle of car repair shops. We know that bad mechanic garage experiences can turn you off from bringing in your car on a regular basis, so we want to encourage you to stop by Minnie’s to have your auto repair and maintenance needs taken care of.

This is especially true for us mothers and wives. Between dropping kids off for sports, school, going shopping, and running errands necessary to take care of the house, you are putting extra miles on your car. More than average, at least. That’s why we offer preventative work and maintenance backed by warranties from 12,000 miles to 36,000 miles, depending on the service.

I’m Claudia

I started Minnie’s Auto Repair with my husband Jason in 2017, to provide you with honest, quality car repair. Minnie’s is designed to be clean and inviting, a place you can bring your children and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while your vehicle is serviced. Located off St. Andrew’s I loved how close we are to Irmo High School and Harbison, so you can drop off your car and go shopping!
