Meet the Team 

IAN CRAVEN is the owner and operator of Exshaw Auto Truck and Bus Ltd.  Ian has worked as a Bow Valley mechanic in Canmore for over 10 years and enjoys the relaxed lifestyle of mountain living. After years of working in the Bow Valley, he saw a gap in the service industry and set out to fill it. His goal was to solve two problems: to provide a facility large enough to cater to vehicles of all size and to offer his services without the “Bow Valley markup”. After finding a 4000 SQ FT facility and hiring a team of highly qualified and licensed journeymen with 50+ years of experience those goals became a reality. Since it’s opening in 2018, Exshaw ATB Ltd. has established itself as a shop locals can trust and a service many commercial businesses rely on when they need to get back on the road quickly. 

If Ian isn’t the shop repairing vehicles he is likely riding his Ducatti or visiting car shows around the country.

Client Testimonials

Dont’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

Impeccable customer service! Ian really went above and beyond helping me out. He came and checked out my vehicle when I was worried about driving it, and escorted me to the shop making sure I had no issues on the way. I was so pleased with the pricing and willingness to help! My transportation from Canmore to Exshaw was taken care of when my vehicle was ready. Can’t recommend these guys enough!!!!!!

Our preferred mechanic for cvip commercial vehicle inspections, great people, honest, reliable, trustworthy mechanics. Also, a great place for your car and motorcycles as well. They have shuttle service if needed. And have the most convenient location in Exshaw. I have gone to cochrane for all these services in the past, since Canmore had too few mechanics and the wait was incredibly long.

…Ian was very helpful in chatting about different issues and solutions and even offered to come meet with me when he was in Banff because he had the time. Who does that!We took 2 vans out to the shop and not only did they shuttle my mate and I back to Banff, they finished the van in record time (both of them), cheaper then expected and even fixed a few things that appeared when they were doing the work – they installed a door handle I had sitting on the seat just because that’s the kind of people they are. What would have taken me however long, takes them 2 seconds and its these small things I loved.I went back as more issues popped up but now am road tripping through North America living Vanlife inpart thanks to Ian and the crew!Thanks guys!!
