Our Story

The Story of Visscher-Pau Automotive

In 1986, Henk Visscher and his wife, Rita, opened up Visscher’s Auto Repair in the Cloverdale area of surrey.
With dedicated team members at their side, Henk and Rita built a solid reputation for honest and thorough work that spanned three decades. In late 2016, they stepped back from the business and their son-in-law, A.J. Pau, took over under Visscher-Pau Automotive.


Today, as a family-owned small business, we take immense pride in preserving the legacy established by Henk and Rita. Our commitment to serving the community with honesty and professionalism remains unwavering. Our story is one of continuity, where the values instilled in the shop’s early days continue to guide us.

At Visscher-Pau Automotive, we don’t just have customers; we have cherished relationships with our clients. Our approach is rooted in connection and understanding. We are here to serve, educate, and assist.
Many of our clients and their families have been with us for the last 35 years, and we take pride in the care and service we provide to them and the relationships we have built.


In our efforts to empower our clients, we offer comprehensive digital inspections. These inspections go beyond just identifying vehicle issues; they help our clients understand the state of their vehicles. We provide clarity by helping them prioritize repairs and offering options for immediate concerns versus those that can wait. This approach not only aids in vehicle maintenance but also enables budgeting.
