About Us in Carleton Place, ON

70+ Years of Auto Expertise

Serving Our Community Since 1953

In 1953, Marvin MacPherson founded MacPherson’s Auto Centre as the area’s expert radiator repair resource. The business quickly expanded to include a full range of general auto repairs and maintenance services.  In 1985, Marvin’s son Ross started to move into an ownership role and by 1990, he and his wife Laurie were full owners of MacPherson’s Auto Centre.  The business continued to expand and support the community over the next 30+ years.

In 2023, Ross & Laurie made the decision to move to Africa.  They had been volunteering with an organization over there and felt a true calling to go and help.  One of their sons, Spencer, had already been working in the business for many years, running the day-to-day operations and by late 2023, he and his wife Rebecca became full owners of MacPherson’s Auto Centre.  70+ years in, and we’re excited for the next 70+ years.  Today’s large service centre is a fully-equipped repair shop designed to provide complete automotive care for all kinds of vehicles. Cars, light-duty trucks, SUVs, vans, and more–we accept most vehicle makes and models, making us the only team you’ll need. Stop by our shop today and see for yourself why so many drivers choose us for their vehicle’s repairs and services.
