Little Valley's Story...
Serving Vancouver Island since 1980 Little Valley Collision & Glass is family owned and operated. Consisting of eleven full-time employees the team is made up of office staff, painters, apprentices, body technicians, detailers and glass technicians. The broad experience of the team adds to the service that Little Valley guarantees their customers.
Owner, John Neil, and his son, Travis Neil, have been passionate about bringing classic vehicles back to life for over 40 years. Little Valley is now focused on automotive collision and glass repair, but the art of vehicle restoration and custom projects always have a place in their hearts.
Little Valley’s story began over 40 years ago when John decided to quit his job and follow his passion for painting classic cars. It began as a backyard bodyshop with a two-bay garage on John acreage. John and his wife Jacky had purchased the land with the hopes of one day having a small hobby farm for their future family and enough room for a garage for John to enjoy his hobby of painting cars and motorcycles.
After making the leap to becoming self-employed the shop quickly grew and John found himself needing to hire employees. Andrew Graham, was one of Little Valley’s first employees and still works with them today. The shop has been expanded over the years and sits on the front of the Neil’s property. The Neil’s house, which is always full of heart-warming laughter, is at the back of the property where their seven grandkids have room to play and explore in the same way the Neil’s kids did.
John and Jacky have three kids who spend a lot of time hanging out at the shop and when they were old enough had their first jobs – cleaning the office and lunch room, detailing cars and setting up a small concession for the employees to enjoy a treat on their breaks. The three Neil kids are grown up now and all play a role in Little Valley. Sheena is the Accounts Manager, and Travis is Production Manager. While you will see Sheena and Travis in the office and shop, Jana is their Graphic Design who works off-site.
