ASHTON — Mike Hambley and his wife Lana have embarked on an adventure to provide a much needed service to the residents in and around Ashton.
They opened Ashton Auto Repair in September. Mike brings with him more than 20 years of experience in the industry. Lana takes care of organizing the office and works full time at Sensient in Amboy.
Ashton Auto Repair offers full service from oil changes to complete engine R and R. Services also include tires, batteries and towing.
Hambley son-in-law, Jason Miller, a former employee of the Ashton Auto Body, owned and operated by Tony and Marlen Schopp, encouraged Hambley to consider offering the much needed service in Ashton.
“All of the pieces just fell together after that,” said Hambley. “The community has been fantastic and supportive of us. We are keeping busy, I expected a slower start, maybe six months to be up to par, but we have not seen that.”
Hours at the Ashton Auto Repair are 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, Saturday by appointment.
