Loaner vehicles & shuttle service.

We currently have 4 loaner vehicles for your convenience. If you don’t have a back up car, we are happy to lend you one of ours while you wait for your car to be finished. Please mention this to us when making your appointment and we can make arrangement for you to have one of our loaners.

If you need to be shuttled back home or to work, we can do this for you as well. If at all possible, please let us know in advance so we can have a staff member available to get you where you need to go.

History of Fort Collins 4×4

The Fort Collins facility, originally built as the Volvo dealership, has been a 4×4 shop for a very long time. In 2013 the facility closed it’s doors under the previous owner & was vacant for a few months. Current owner, Ross Houk, relocated his family to Fort Collins in January 2014 to take over this location and John’s 4×4 in Boulder. At the time, the Fort Collins location was also called John’s 4×4 and we decided to change the name back to it’s original name by ressurecting the old vintage Fort Collins 4×4 sign that was hanging in the back of the shop. The name was officially changed back to Fort Collins 4×4 in the spring of 2014. It took some time, lots of hard work and getting fabulous employees for the stores to turn around. This shop has found it’s success almost entirely with word of mouth. Our long standing staff members have been such a key to our growth as they enjoy work, provide personal service and give honest feedback on what work needs to be done. Most people think we just do 4×4 accessories, but it has been women with minivans and compact cars who have spread the word around Fort Collins that we are just a great autoshop. It is our greatest hope that you will feel this too when you come check us out!

The Boulder location was sold in February 2019 to a new energetic owner who will take it to new heights. Ross is excited to fully invest in Fort Collins 4×4, our employees and our community. Exciting new changes will be coming to Fort Collins 4×4 in 2019.

Happy Customers

Fort Collins 4×4 was a refreshing experience from most other automotive service shops. I needed new shocks, struts, wheels, and tires. They were patient walking me through how to implement what I wanted and working within my budget. They were clearly experienced in what they do and the end result spoke for itself. I was extremely happy with every part of the process. Will be going back as long as I’m in the northern front range and highly recommend for anyone else.

If you’re looking for honest and reliable mechanics, this is the place. I’ve had all three of my vehicles in for various repairs. Some repairs done as described, some not done because, well, they called and said, the work is not needed, saving me hundreds. When was the last time you found an honest repair shop like this?

Thanks Fort Collins 4×4! I always appreciate your honesty.
