Colonial Auto Service was founded in 1977 by David Murray. His goal was to build an up front and honest auto repair business and strived to provide new and current customers the most reliable service in town. David saw his business as an important part of the town of East Longmeadow and surrounding areas.
The customer base of Colonial Auto Service continued to grow over the years. In fact, the customer base eventually became too big for this small auto repair shop. As a result, Dave Murray decided to build a new garage to provide better service to his customers. In January of 1988, the new garage was completed and ready to be put to use.
