Advanced technology, old-fashioned service.

Full-Service Automotive Repair Shop

Hofker Automotive has and always will be a family-owned and operated business and has been in Lincoln, NE, for over 70 years. Jim’s father, LeRoy, originally started Hofker Automotive in the 1950s. During LeRoy’s time operating the business, his wife, Jim’s mother, also worked as the bookkeeper, and soon his two boys would join in the family business.

Jim started working part-time for his father when he was 13 doing odd jobs around the shop, and by 15, he had begun working on cars every day. His father always took the time to talk to customers, explaining why he was doing what was doing, or why they needed to certain repairs. His father’s approach to customer service left a lasting impression on Jim.

At Hofker Automotive, we are determined to do right by our customers, and we do not force them to get unnecessary services. Jim has always treated customers like family, even being told: “it’s like working with a boy scout.”
