Who is Mike Sanford?

Mike Sanford started working on motorcycles and cars in his own garage at an early age. When he later began entering racing competitions in both Motorcross and Late Model Sportsman Dirt Track, he soon understood the need to know as much as possible for himself about automotive and engine repair. After working to learn all he could on his own, he started working as an auto mechanic at local dealerships.  For more than 10 years he worked at amassing experience and acquiring more knowledge and training.  Then he realized it was time to open his own garage, and the rest is part of Columbia, SC history.

Mike runs his auto repair business with the knowledge that each of his customers is very particular about who services their cars and trucks.  His superior customer service, attention to detail and impeccable skill is what wins the trust and loyalty of the drivers he serves.

“My customers want someone they can trust who will stand behind the work they do… and they want [auto repair work] done in a timely manner. I personally guarantee the [repair and service] jobs that leave my shop. If a customer isn’t happy, I’ll do my best to make them happy.”  — Mike Sanford, owner Sanford’s Automotive Service
