About Hancock Tire & Auto Service and Riverview Tire & Auto Service
The Hancock Family started a general store and service garage in the tiny community of Riverview in the 1930's. Now in it's third generation, and bringing up its fourth, they opened their second location on Bloomingdale Avenue in Riverview, in November 2008. The first location "Riverview Tire and Auto Service" is located on Hwy 301 near its original 1930's location, on the Alafia River. This main location was taken over by the second and third generations of the Hancock family 29 years ago, in 1982, and offers the same superior service started by Horace and Mary Hancock in the 1930's, when Florida's highway's were either shell or brick paved and surrounded by acres of piney woods. The Hancock Store is managed by siblings John, James Hancock and Jean Dyer. The Riverview store is managed by parents John and Helen Hancock. The stores won the Angie's List Best Service award in 2010. They are a member of the Better Business Bureau, the Automotive Service Association, a Bumper to Bumper Certified Auto Center and proud to be a newly Certified Female Friendlyr AskPatty location. The Technicians are ASE certified and business sponsors of IATN, and a client of the Automotive Training Institute continuing their education in the automotive industry.
