Rudy and Peter Motors Ltd. is a family shop that has been an automotive fixture in the Vancouver area almost 50 years. Owner Dirk Schwuchow and his team of qualified, certified mechanics have the knowledge and equipment to work on European imports, including the new generation of VW, Audi, BMW and other imports.

Our Service and Repair shop first opened in the early 60’s, when the Volkswagen Beetle was quickly becoming the #1 vehicle sold in the world. Rudy Von Hertzberg - an avid rally racer - and his partner Peter opened up shop on April 19th, 1965. With a team of German factory-trained technicians, Rudy and Peter Motors quickly made a name for itself in the Volkswagen community.

After the first year, Peter moved on but Rudy kept the company steadily growing, building a reputation for quality and efficient repairs at a reasonable cost. In 1988, Rudy decided to take a step back. Eckehard Schwuchow and Klaus Kahl, two employees of Rudy, took over ownership of the company. Klaus brought in a youthful enthusiasm and modern know-how to compliment Eckehard’s old school training. Through the early 90’s, Rudy and Peter Motors’ had developed a reputation for great work on New and Old Vw’s, Audi’s and other imports continued to grow. In 1994, the company became a true father and son business as Klaus left for new adventure, allowing Dirk, Eckehard’s son and mechanic to join as partner. In 1998, Eckehard retired and Dirk took full reins of the company.

With a dedicated core of technicians and up-to-date training and equipment for the new generation of European imports, Rudy and Peter Motors continues to stay true to the Mission Statement Rudy pronounced almost 50 year ago. “To provide our customers with top quality service, at a fair price.
