When you're in need of a quality Ford service center in Port Alberni, we can help. Van Isle Ford can take care of your needs, from car maintenance to any major auto repair. You'll love the way you're treated, eliminating some of the stress from having your car serviced.

Travel with Confidence

The last thing you want to do is go for a longer trip, only to have something on your Ford not work correctly. After all, being stranded away from civilization can really take away from the fun of a journey, and make you fearful to go anywhere else in the future.

We want you to take advantage of the many things to do in the area. Explore Vancouver Island University's Milner Gardens and Woodland. Situated in Qualicum Beach, you can get there after a relatively short drive. With 28 hectares (70 acres) of natural terrain, you can relax and feel transported to a different world. Even Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana, and other British royalty have visited the spot, showing how special it is.

You can make your trip last all day, with plenty of activities to enjoy. For example, afternoon tea service at the Milner House, an historic structure, promises an experience you won't soon forget. Peruse the gift shop, or find just the right plant for your home garden at the nursery.

After spending the day in nature, you can climb into your Ford knowing it will get you home without incident.

Explore Sproat Lake

For even more rugged fun, visit nearby Sproat Lake Provincial Park. Situated in the central portion of Vancouver Island, a mere 15 minutes from Port Alberni, it provides many different outdoor activities. You can go swimming, water skiing, fishing, or explore the many prehistoric petroglyphs in the area.

Many of the things to do at Sproat Lake can only be fully enjoyed with a boat. Of course, you can bring yours along, if your Ford is outfitted to tow it. Even with the proper hitch and other equipment, pulling a boat can put a strain on the engine, transmission, etc. Any problems you didn't notice before could mean the difference between getting to and from the park without incident, and suffering something like an overheating engine.

Each time you visit our service department, we check your Ford over for common problems. We then make you aware of the situation, so you know what's going on with your car and can make informed decisions.

Indulge a Little

While many tourists visit Port Alberni for the many natural beauties, locals also enjoy the excellent food establishments. One favorite, Coombs Country Candy, provides a wide variety of treats. Choose your favorite candies or ice cream flavours, and take in the charming surroundings.

If something more adult is to your liking, Twin City Brewing could be a good match. Take a moment to enjoy a good brew, along with comforting food and a laidback atmosphere.

With the money you'll save long-term by visiting our service department, you'll be able to frequent these and other local spots more often. Our staff puts honesty first, so you only get done what's necessary. We do the work correctly the first time, eliminating the need for return visits for the same problem.
