About Us

Local, Family-Oriented Import Car Repair

Welcome to Precision Imports! We’re a family-run import car repair shop in Milaca, MN serving the entire central Minnesota area, from Brainerd to Elk River, St. Cloud to Hinckley.

I’m Tony Ringham, and I run the shop with my wife, Jennifer and our two stellar technicians, Ben and Paul. My wife and I grew up in Milaca - it’s our hometown, and we’re happy to have established our business here, growing with our community and staying connected to our long-time customers.

The Ringham family

We started Precision Imports in 2006 as a three-car garage near our home. Every day we came out to do our best for the local community, working hard to repair and service imported vehicles from Europe and Asia, eventually growing to accommodate Sprinter vans and campers. As our client base grew, so did our number of technicians and the need for more space; but we wanted to stay local. In 2015, we opened a new facility not far from the original building in Milaca, still giving the same excellent service and providing our customers an even better experience when visiting our shop.

When you call Precision Imports, you’ll actually speak directly with me, Tony, as I’ve set my cell phone to the shop number. The buck stops here, and you can be sure you’ll get top-notch service! When you work with us, you’ll receive a free loaner car, along with after-hours drop-off and pick-up. We also keep our rates affordable - currently, we charge $85/hour, much lower than the dealer industry standard.

Experience

Prior to opening Precision Imports, I attended Universal Technical Institute in Chicago where I graduated first in my class. I then attended the Mercedes-Benz Star certification graduate program, where again, I finished first in my class.

I also worked at three different independent repair shops prior to and while attending technical school. These independent shops exposed me to repairing many different makes and models and the unique challenges they all present. After graduation I worked at a Mercedes-BMW dealer in Des Moines, Iowa as a service technician, where I gained a lot of real world experience in some of the more complicated aspects of auto repair such as software updates and programming!

In Milaca, we’ve had more than a decade of experience working on import cars and Sprinter vans, opening our shop in 2006 and hiring additional qualified technicians along the way. With Precision Imports, there’s no need to sacrifice quality for the cost savings of an independent repair shop!
