Randy and Candy Mills purchased the two bay service station in 1980 from Randy's folks, who operated it as a Texaco Service Station, U-Haul dealership, and U-Haul repair shop. Randy and Candy converted it to an Exxon Service Station and general auto repair garage, and operated as such until the 1990s, when they removed the gas pumps and turned their focus entirely to auto repair.
Given the rapid advance in automotive technology, our philosophy is to remain up-to-date in our technical knowledge, equipment, and practice. At the same time, we know many of our customers have antique and collectible vehicles, and because of this, and thanks to
our extensive history in the industry, we maintain a library of service manuals dating back to1962. Our experienced mechanics are able to service all generations of vehicles.
Mills Repair has supported various community organizations over the years, including many Belgrade School clubs, Belgrade and Central Valley Fire Departments, Belgrade Fall Festival, Belgrade Bandits Baseball, Belgrade Little League, Belgrade Booster Club, Belgrade Senior Sober, Boy Scouts of America, Belgrade Girl Scouts, Belgrade Chamber of Commerce, and the U.S. Navy Veterans Association.
