About Us

About W&B Automotive Repair Ltd.

W&B Automotive Repair Ltd. is named after its founders, Wayne and Brigitte Laplante. They got into the business in 1983 at the Airdrie Shell with a 2-bay garage and towing capabilities. With 1 employed apprentice technician and Wayne, a licensed technician, W&B Automotive Repair became incorporated on August 29, 1983. After three years of operations, W&B Automotive Repair had to be closed as the Shell station in Airdrie closed. However, they managed to bounce back and purchase land which became the permanent home for W&B Automotive Repair. 

Between 1987 to 1988, W&B Automotive Repair Ltd. grew and became a 4-bay automotive shop.

Wayne and Brigitte’s son, Dan, was interested in their family business. He would often accompany his father to his shop. When Wayne suddenly passed away while vacationing in BC, it came as a shock to all. Airdrie lost a great businessman and a generous soul. Dan decided to continue his father’s legacy and took over the management of the shop. 

W&B Automotive Repair Ltd. won the Airdrie City View Readers Choice Awards for Best Place for Auto Repairs in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Dan gives credit for these achievements to his father.

Friendly Staff!

“This shop is great. Staff was very friendly. What I liked best about this shop was every time a customer came through the door, they where greeted by their first name. That told me this was the place to do business. W&B was recommended to me, best chance on a new shop I've taken in years. The work I had done was perfect and the price was so reasonable, I am sold they have a new customer for as long as I live in Airdrie and I'll be telling friends and family about these guys. Thanks for making our transaction great.”


Great to Deal With!

“A big shoutout to You guys for keeping my vehicles on the road. We have been using you guys for the past 6 years. And since I went out on my own as PMC Plumbing you guys have always been great to deal with and always fast. Today you where able to get me back on the road by lunchtime thanks so much.”


Efficient and Honest!

“Such a great experience going here!

Todd in the office was super pleasant to talk to, Dan was also friendly and got the work done in a great time frame!

Efficient and HONEST guys. Really helped me out with what I needed and even printed something out for me. Would recommend to friends and family and will definitely be a repeat customer!”


Positive Feedback!

“I'm leaving a review because positive feedback is important in a world full of negativity. I have two young adult children who have tight budgets to keep their high mile cars on the road. I always take their vehicles to W&B. I don't know a thing about cars expect that it either works or it doesn't, and if it doesn't it costs a lot. But the guys there are honest, accommodating and get my kids' cars up and running as good as new again. I appreciate W&B's integrity and honesty when dealing with us. I have taken my car there as well and they take care of us.

Support local business and take your car where you can trust the work to be done right, affordably, honestly and on time. Thanks W&B!”


One of The Best Mechanic Shops!

“They have helped me several times with serious mechanical issues. The speed and costs of their work is beyond words. Without hesitation one of the best if not the best mechanic shop in Airdrie.”
