Skip's Automotive Services

Located just outside of Southwest Harbor, ME, on Rt. 102, 19 Bass Harbor Rd. Skip's Automotive Services is a family owned and run business providing a full offering of repairs and services for your car or truck, from general repairs, tune-ups and computer diagnostics to brake services, engine overhaul (and more) and your annual state inspections. Coming soon: MDI's only car wash!

We take pride in the quality of our services. All of our work is warrantied. If my crew makes a mistake, we'll cover it.

Our goal is to provide our customers the best services as convenient as possible. In order to achieve this we offer: same day service, free shuttle and top quality parts. We are dedicated to making sure that you fully understand the repairs and service you are purchasing - before you purchase them. No work is ever performed without your authorization and we will never surprise you with a bill which is higher than you were quoted. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

We make your service experience hassle-free. We are happy to offer early bird and night owl drop-box service and local shuttle service to your home or office. We knowyou are busy and you want to help keep your vehicle in top condition.

Parts are warrantied through suppliers at different levels. Some are 12-month warrantied and do not pay for the labor cost. There are other parts that have lifetime warranties but do not pay for labor. Some pay for defective parts and labor, so it is a little difficult to predict.

Used Cars

We try to help our customers sell their used auto and trucks by finding an appropriate value for the vehicle. We can then post photos on Uncle Henry's online and Criag's List.


Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your owner's manual, but more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.

Regular tune-ups can lengthen your vehical's life. When your car is properly tuned, the ignition system, fuel system, emission system and the computer system are all working together. This results in peak combustion chamber efficiency, saving you money at the gas pump and making sure your car is emitting a minimum of pollutants
