Our family business was started back in 1945 when Mike and Mark's grandfather, Otto Kusch, opened Kusch's garage on 58th and North Avenue in Milwaukee. Jack Kusch, our dad bought the shop from Otto and continued to operate it into the early 90's. Three generations worked in that building for over 45 years taking care of neighborhood cars. Now Mike and Mark along with Mike's son Jeff work together in Hartland, continuing the same family tradition of car repair, now in its 4th generation.
Hartland Service opened in April of 1992. The original shop had 6 bays, a very small office and waiting room. Business grew and in 1997 we added on 6 more service bays, a lunch/meeting room for technicians, offices and a large waiting area for our customers. Our 12 bay facility is now designed to take care today's customers and their automobiles. Our ASE certified techs are committed to offering the best service possible.
