Our Story
The Late James L. Hill, Sr., had a vision to operate a family owned and operated automotive services business based on honesty and mutual trust over 50 years ago. His wife, Mrs. Ella Hill, supported the business by sharing her home and meals with customers. No one was ever going to leave without having been asked to dine.

Mr. Hill and three of his sons, Sam, James, Jr, and Ronnie successfully served customers in Charlotte and surrounding communities for over 50 years at the East W.T. Harris (Hickory Grove) site, known by many as just “Hills”. That site is now the home for the Hickory Grove Church football field.

Sam and his wife Marilynn continued to execute Mr. Hill’s vision with the May 2007 opening of the 12K sq. ft Lester-Hill building in Cornelius, NC. Over half of the building space is dedicated to Hill and Sons Automotive Services operations. Store front office/retail spaces are available for lease facing Old Statesville Road.

The building design and day-to-day operations incorporate feedback solicited from many valued customers.

Customers enjoy the amenities of a well-maintained service bay area, lobby, customer lounge, restrooms, productivity suite, classroom and break room. Vehicles are kept securely within the building until they are released to the customer.

After 50 years, the legacy continues, with our dedication to be known for great service to our customers, and the place you tell all of your family and friends about.
