Bill and Vicki Head moved to Hilton Head in 1986 from northern Kentucky. Bill was a Mercedes Benz Technician at a local dealership, aiming to one day open his own auto repair shop. Vicki was a nurse, dreaming of starting a family. 1993 was a busy year with the adoption of their daughter Whitney from Peru and the opening of H & H Auto Service!  Three years later (1996) they adopted Michael from Costa Rica. Bill was a one-man shop; answering the phones, fixing the cars and ordering parts. In 2003, we opened our 10,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility. In 2007, we expanded to open H & H Auto Body. Today, both businesses are growing and serving our community.

Today we have a full-service collision repair shop filled with a dedicated team that works hard every day to make our customers and our business proud!
