I am a newcomer to Jim Miga's fan club. Last summer, I was looking for someone to help me with my small collection of classic cars. I noticed Jim's ad in the Jaguar monthly newsletter and gave him a call. I was hoping for someone who would not only help with the detailing, but also do some minor repairs and routine maintenance. Jim was the right man for the job. I can honestly say that he has brought each car up at least one level. Jim is talented, trustworthy, reliable, and a nice guy as well. I highly recommend him for the job.
In my role as European Editor for Nissan Sport Magazine and co-founder of the UK Nissan High Performance Owner's Club, Nissansportz , I have photographed and written about everything from the Pebble Beach concours, with its accompanying Monterey Historics, to the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England. From these experiences and now having recently been a customer of Jim's for my BMW, I can honestly say that Jim's level of workmanship and high standards of preservation and restoration, be it classic or modern, is comparable to some of the best automotive preparers in the world marketplace. I would especially invite all modern high-performance Japanese car owners to run, not walk, to The Garage Valet for that show-quality detailing work necessary for success. Whether it be for an upcoming show or just your own personal pride in your ride, Jim will take it to a new level that you thought never existed. Thanks, Jim!

I asked Jim to come to my house to detail my car. As we walked around it, I realized that there were several things that I had meant to have done and had either never found the right person or the time to bring it to the right person. They were just small things, like a 3/8 inch rip in the dashboard vinyl, a deep scratch in the door jam, an emblem that had discolored, a mirror that needed to be relocated by a half inch, realigning the headlights, re-adjusting the front grill, fixing the seat belts. There were thirteen projects in all and Jim did them all professionally and beautifully. Jim’s patience and resourcefulness was astounding. This is the first spring my Ferrari will hit the road completely prepared.
I recommend The Garage Valet to anyone who has a vehicle they love.

when it came time to sell my Jaguar E-Type Fixed Head Coupe, she already looked respectable, but I naturally wanted her to be putting her best foot forward. Jim came to my house and, in a few short hours, had simply worked wonders. What a huge difference between merely looking good and looking drop-dead gorgeous! Jim knows his stuff and is extremely caring and careful (not to mention being an exceedingly nice guy). If you've been looking for a responsible and skilled person to take care of your four-wheeled treasure, look no further than The Garage Valet. Oh, yes—and my Jaguar sold quickly!

It was good to meet you the other day. Great job on my 911SC! Feel free to use my name as a reference.
I have known Jim MIGA for nearly 30 years, at first during his many responsibilities in the Alfa Romeo Club and for the last few years as the talented artist who has come to my garage from time to time to turn decent-looking cars into fine-looking jewels. Trustworthy and most capable, Jim has always performed within my expectations and most times well beyond them, be it in “detailing” of a car or caring to the myriad other smaller needs my old cars seem to always require. He is a gentleman, honest and talented, with the uncommon ability to provide a quality of service difficult to find these days.
I hold Jim in high esteem and highly recommend him and The Garage Valet to anyone who is looking for superior results in caring for their cars .
When Jim Miga finished with my 1986 Mercedes Benz 560 SL, it looked better than when I first purchased it. The door jams, trunk and engine compartment were shining better than new. The convenience of Jim coming to my home in Rowley, MA while I was able to carry on with my business was a blessing. I would not hesitate in the least to recommend Jim for the finest of cars and I will be calling him in the fall to give the car the once-over for the winter storage. Thanks again, Jim.
