The talented team at Mr. Lube have truly turned their passion into a profession!

Pairing passion + years of industry experience creates quite the dream team!

Car care when you need it, and entirely on your schedule

What’s better than doing what you love every day for work?

Being surrounded by others who enjoy their work just as much as you do!

That’s what every day looks like for Dave van Dongen, franchise owner at Chilliwack’s Mr Lube.

Dave’s passion for cars saw him starting his career with Mr Lube back in 1994, and it’s what’s kept him there 27 years later.

It seems his coworkers feel the same way!

Meet the Dream Team:

First, let’s say hello to the manager, Ryan! Prior to joining Dave’s team, he spent thirteen years working at Langley’s Mr Lube, where he quickly climbed the ranks from technician to manager.

Next, meet Calvin, who’s easy to recognize as he’s been working at Mr. Lube his entire life – he was hired at just 20 years old and spent 17 years at the Mr. Lube in Abbotsford. In fact, his old clients will drive from Abbotsford just to see him – talk about customer satisfaction!

Brandon also spent a year in Abbotsford working with Calvin before joining him in Chilliwack.

Jared is the youngest of the group and while he’s only been with Mr. Lube for a handful of years, he’s been showing quick progress thanks to the strong team of mentors surrounding him.

Dave is another longtime employee, who between his time shared at the Langley and Chilliwack location, has been with the company for a decade.

Lastly, meet Fred! At 71 years old, he’s worked alongside Dave most of his career, and is sure to be a familiar face.

While being able to turn their passion into a profession has been a huge appeal for the staff at Mr Lube, Dave maintains it’s the relationships they develop with their customers that are truly special.

“Being in the community for as long as we have has given us the chance get to know a lot of our customers. They’re always so great and easy to talk to, we get to know a lot of them by first name,” Dave notes.

And building these relationships is especially important, as the way Dave see’s it, “if we take care of the customer, they’ll take care of the car,” he explains.

By offering myriad services, this is your one-top-shop for oil changes, complete tire services, AC recharging and plenty more for your car.

Swing by to see for yourself – expect to see plenty of smiling faces and friendly service, and if you’re lucky you might just catch a Karaoke performance!

To keep your car running strong, with top-to-bottom maintenance, a trip to Mr. Lube is in order.

Stop by in-person to enjoy fast, same-day service or visit online to learn more. With no appointment necessary, getting the service you need has never been easier.
