The Highest Quality Service at the Best Possible Rates

Welcome From the Owner, Jim Carpenter


My name is Jim Carpenter and I would like to thank you for taking time to investigate our 5 star business.

Automotive repair facilities come in a broad range when it comes to service. The options available are individual choices depending on the situation.

Things like affordability, convenience, security, trust and relationships:

  1. Affordability is understandable if money is an issue and unfortunately lower price comes at a cost. For a business to be affordable things like parts quality and qualified labor suffers in an effort to be affordable.
  2. Convenience means you take your vehicle to the nearest automotive repair facility with out any knowledge of the automotive repair service or the mechanics working on your car.
  3. Security comes with the national auto repair brands or dealerships that offer nation wide auto repair services.
  4. Trust builds relationships and that takes time. Auto Inspection Service is a family owned business built on ethics.

Servicing the Dublin/Columbus area.


For busy individuals, we can pick up your car from home, repair and return it to your home. A key drop is available for after hours drop offs. Our process is as transparent as they come.

Thank you for considering us for your automotive needs,

Jim Carpenter, Owner

Special Message From Jim

For those of you that know me will agree that I am honest and fair. If you are considering us for the first time, you have yet to establish our reputation as a fact. I completely understand because I have adjusted to a world full of false data, deception, fraud, and other immoral activities. The automotive repair industry has a bad reputation, and I'm certain fraudulent activities are occurring or incorrect diagnosing which appears dishonest. Brand Names offer security for many people; however, the personal touch is usually missing. My business is ethical and personal with one goal in mind, and that is to serve our clients. A family-owned business that gives individual service on a one on one basis. It's not a one size fits all. I understand, if you are looking for honesty, small town old fashion service allows me to serve you.
