Here’s the Lowdown on Harry’s HP Tire & Automotive

In 1977, Harry Volkmann was living in California, and there was a drought. Tired of the dry weather and the toll it takes on the land and one’s spirit, he went looking for a better place to live, and made it to Colorado Springs. He decided this was God’s country. Within three short months, Harry sold his house, quit his job, and moved to Colorado unemployed.

Harry found a job in the newspaper selling tires, even though he knew almost nothing about cars. But he was a salesperson at heart and accepted the job. Now four decades later, that tire salesman job has morphed into a 12-bay auto repair and tire shop, employing and supporting six families.

Staff at Harry's HP Tire & Automotive, auto repair shop in Colorado Springs, CO

"We started this business because after 20 years in the automotive industry, I felt we could offer customers an honest, true value, which they were not receiving in most of the auto repair shops I worked in. We are proud of the relationships we’ve built with our customers. We know most by first name, and consider them part of our family.

I have never been a technician. I have always been in the customer service industry. It’s my obligation to ensure my customers’ vehicles are repaired properly. That’s why I employ the BEST ASE Certified techs available."
