Hig & Son automotive shop opens in Habart

After nearly 20 years as a mechanic, David Higginson has opened up his own auto repair shop in Habart called Hig & Son Automotive Repair.

After nearly 20 years as a mechanic, David Higginson has opened up his own auto repair shop in Habart called Hig & Son Automotive Repair.

Higginson said being a mechanic was all he ever wanted to be.

“I realized in high school that I wanted to be a mechanic. I grew up in the area and have worked at other shops. I finally made the decision that the time was right to open my own shop.”

Spending his entire life in the Golden area has given the mechanic a unique perspective on what people want from a repair shop.

“I enjoy my job and decided it was the right time to have my own business. I want to do my best to help people get the service they need.”

Juniper Kelly is Higginson’s wife and partner in the business. She said the family-operated business is also working very hard to give the best rates possible to people who live in the area.

“We are a family run business that offers affordable rates. We are trying to help families save money on their car repairs because we understand it is very expensive to keep your car in good running order,” Kelly said. “We want to provide the best service possible for the best price we can.”

She said it is important for people to keep their vehicles  well maintained so they will last longer, and the business is doing what they can to help.

“We will pick it up and bring it out here or if they drop it off we will drop them off in Golden and pick them up when their vehicle is ready,” Kelly said.

Higginson said he can do almost anything that needs to be done with a vehicle and plans to offer more service in the future.

“I know a lot of local people who know they are not going to be dealing with someone in the back of the shop. Here the customer will be talking to the mechanic,” he said.
