Setting the Standard in the Community Since 1937
Willands Tech Auto has been proudly servicing Ferndale and Whatcom County’s residents for more than 80 years. Ron Willand took the shop over in 1963, from his father Olve Willand, who started the business where Little Caesars is now in 1937. Over the decades, through Ron’s leadership, knowledge, and expertise, Willands has been a staple in this community and has been voted "BEST Automotive Services" in Ferndale multiple times. As the hands of time roll on, the time has come for Ron to pass the torch himself. Lead technician Chris Atkinson and his brother Marcus Martin took over the shop from Ron in June of 2019. Chris and Marcus are part of a local family that is committed to offering the best, family-oriented customer experiences and automotive services in our beautiful community. Advancing with the times and technology Willands Tech Auto can service and repair classic cars on up to today's high-tech vehicles using old techniques and the very latest in diagnostic technologies.
"I haven't had a better vehicle related experience. I had been at Pierre Ford in Seattle and was quoted over $1000 to fix my car, claiming that three parts NEEDED to be replaced or my car would not run again. I had insisted that only the ignition switch was broken, but they wouldn't listen. I decided to get a second opinion. I called Willand's, my family had been bringing cars here for years. Trent helped me over the phone, we talked about the problem, and he told me he couldn't give me sound advice without seeing the car. So I paid Ford $150 for their time, and drove my car up to Ferndale. Sure enough, I get a call the next day from Trent saying that after extensive testing, the only piece with issues was the ignition switch. He saved me $700 on that fix, and their work/part has a lifetime guarantee. I couldn't be more grateful." Sadie C.
"Took my truck in for some performance/battery issues a couple days ago. They got my truck in the shop right away and got everything fixed in a day. They fixed a couple of smaller issues for me that I had not even known about. Would recommend to anyone needing mechanical work." Tony G.
"What a very fair and honest shop. They went above and beyond with my son's truck. A testament to an auto shop should be I recommend to everybody." Chris H.
