When your car won’t start because a small creature stored nuts in your air filter housing, you’re in luck because the specialists at Shamrock Maintenance & Autobody Ltd. will know what to do. (And yes, according to a happy customer’s Facebook review, this happened – for real.)

Shamrock has been servicing the Fort McMurray community for four decades with every kind of auto repair and maintenance you can think of; including out-of-province inspections and fleet maintenance.

It all started as a one-person shop in Sean Reddy’s Beacon Hill driveway after he fixed his first vehicle. By the fall of ’77, he opened up his first shop on Manning Avenue. Two years later, Sean found Shamrock's permanent location on MacDonald Drive and is still going strong after 42 years in business. 

With the addition of a reliable team that Sean can attest to in loyalty and trust, he’s proud to work alongside his Shamrock family of experts and their commitment to returning each vehicle to their clients in better shape than they came in. Shamrock pros stick to that promise with continuous exceptional car care.
