After-Hours Drop Off
Sometimes auto repair needs arise long after most auto repair shops have closed (most auto repair shops close at 6 pm). With after-hours drop off services, you leave your car at the mechanics shop for repair even if the shop has closed. You simply fill out an envelope, put in your keys, and drop it in a drop box. The auto shop will only contact you when your car is ready or when they need additional information. At Columbia Car Care and Fleet Specialties, we value your convenience and that is why we offer after-hours drop off services. A completed Drop-Off Form will help the mechanic diagnose any problems. Even if we have closed, you just drop-off your vehicle at our shop and our mechanics will work on it and contact you when it is ready.
Fleet Maintenance and Repair
As a fleet owner, you have to do all it takes to keep the fleet on the road. When any vehicle is out of service, both revenue and your reputation as a reliable business are at risk.

Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Columbia Car Care and Fleet Specialties replace your worn out hubs today.
Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Columbia Car Care and Fleet Specialties today.
Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 573-499-0004 or visit Columbia Car Care and Fleet Specialties today.
A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Columbia Car Care and Fleet Specialties in Columbia, MO 65201 today.
Mobile repair is a type of auto repair service whereby the repair mechanic comes to you. At Columbia Car Care and Fleet Specialties in Columbia, MO 65201, we understand that most people do not have the time to wait in repair shops and they would rather have their vehicles repaired from their home, workplace, or roadside (if it has broken down on the roadside). We offer mobile repair service. Call us today at 573-499-0004 and tell us where you want your vehicle serviced.
Most Extended Warranties Accepted
An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At Columbia Car Care and Fleet Specialties in Columbia, MO 65201, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.

Before embarking on a trip you should make sure your car is fully inspected for safety. You can rely on the experts at Columbia Car Care and Fleet Specialties. We have pre-trip inspection experts who are able to conduct safety inspections on any car, make, and model. Our experts are dedicated to ensuring you have a safe trip.

Trailer Hitches, Wiring and Tires
Although a trailer does not have an engine of its own, it does require some maintenance. The trailer needs wires to move current to the brake lights and other lights at the back. Columbia Car Care and Fleet Specialties has qualified and experienced electricians who will handle your trailer maintenance. Call us at 573-499-0004 to schedule an appointment.
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. Columbia Car Care and Fleet Specialties can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
I originally found this shop after searching for someone to replace an inverter coolant pump on my Toyota Prius. They did a great job, completed the work quickly, and gave me a far better deal on the work than what I was quoted at the dealer. A couple months after that repair I was driving my husband's Prius when it started to make a banging noise. Not knowing what to do, I drove straight to their shop. They got the car in right away, and came out in a few minutes to let me know that one of the wheels had nearly come off the car. My husband had just had two tires replaced at a different shop. The guys at Columbia Car Care told me to phone the other shop - that they did not consider it would be safe for me to drive it there. The other shop did send a tow truck, and his car was fixed the next day. I am so grateful to Columbia Car Care for helping me that day, and then on top of that, they didn't even charge me to look at the car and let me know what was wrong. This is a great shop - the mechanics are honest, skilled and really care about people. Thank you so much for helping me that day!Claudia Knudten
