Herman's Auto has been proudly serving the Kingston, Ontario community for over 40 years. In 1975, we first opened up as a one-man shop on Bath Road. In November of 1979 we moved to the new location of 825 Portsmouth Avenue, where we've been ever since.
The founding father and name sake of our auto shop is Herman Overvelde. The ownership has since passed to his son, Stephen, whom you can find in the office on a daily basis. Our friendly staff include Greg, our technician, and Shane, Stephen's apprentice. From time to time you can catch Herman popping in to help out.
