About Dansen's Auto Repair and Towing

Dansen's Auto Repair and Towing has been proudly serving the Waianae, HI area since 1996 and counting. Dansen Carvalho was working at CarQuest/Leeward Auto Parts as a Mechanic/Machinist/Parts Salesman/Delivery Driver when he found out that he would soon be a father. He knew he needed to increase his income in order to support three people instead of just himself. He inquired about a raise at his job but was sadly denied. Instead, he decided to look for a new job and was interested in a job that installed automatic doors.

However, just one week before starting his new career, he had the opportunity to open his own repair shop. Dansen liked the idea of opening his own shop, especially since jobs with companies you do not own never guarantee that you will stay employed or make enough money. So, he decided to give shop ownership a shot. Dansen originally opened at a local shell gas station, where he ran the repair side of that station. He eventually went on to open the Dansen’s Auto Repair and Towing location you see today.

Dansen was born and raised in the Waianae community and appreciates the support that the community has had for his business. Through the years, his shop has gained more knowledge, equipment, and tools to better serve the community. Dansen has also made a ton of lifetime friends through the shop. Dansen’s son - who is the reason why he opened his own shop to begin with - also enjoys the automotive field and plans to take over the shop one day.

Dansen’s Auto Repair and Towing started out as a small mom-and-pop shop with one to two employees but has now grown to a five to six-bay shop with two master technicians, two mechanic helpers, HR personnel, and three friendly women running the finances and front-end side of the business. We continue to support our community by funding college scholarships to Waianae High School students, donating to the Boys and Girls Club, and sponsoring local teams and sports.

Thank you to the Waianae community for your continued support of our business! If you ever need your vehicle serviced or repaired, know that you can trust the friendly experts here at Dansen’s Auto Repair and Towing.
