Monty Warren has twenty years' experience in the automotive industry. This, along with 10 years' experience as a carpenter gives him a unique perspective on problem solving. Monty is a licensed mechanic. Monty enjoys boating, spending time with his wife Gladys, and their (now grown) children Jennica and Scott. Here is Monty performing an inspection.
Jeremy Rayner is the Manager and he started working for Mike in 1993 pumping gas. Since the automotive industry spoke to him, he traded the gas pump for wrenches by taking the automotive program at Holland College and became a licensed mechanic. Jeremy enjoys spending time with his children Brody and Mikaela.
Mike Hicken is the owner and he started Hicken's Service Center in October of 1990 as a way to provide himself with employment in a trade that he loves. Going to work each day and helping people get on with their day brings Mike great joy, as can be readily seen from his always smiling face. Through Hicken's Service Center, Mike has been able to help out his community, especially the children by sponsoring sports and literacy programs as well as providing a place for co-op students to learn about the automotive trade. Mike is very proud of his staff and his own two (now grown) children Sarah and Jeffery.
Mikey Ramsay grew up around mechanics all his life from his Dad and his uncles to his Grampie !! So needless to say it is in his blood.

Mikey loves to spend time with his wife, Heather and children, Amy, Michael, Chase, Bo and Macey. He also likes to keep busy in his spare time with hockey, fishing, camping and going to the gym.
Hicken's Tirecraft Service Center started in 1990 as a typical gas and automotive service station. In 2003 we moved to our present location, 626 South Dr. Summerside, PE C1N 3Z7. While living on this beautiful Island is awesome, since we do have limited transit services and some pretty harsh winters, having a good running vehicle that operates on an economical and resilient set of tires is extremely important. That is why with the move in 2003 we turned our focus to tires rather than gas while maintaining the top notch automotive repair services that we have always been known for. We carry a wide range of tires to fit every make of automobile, budget and preference of style. Since we are affiliated with TIRECRAFT so we now have you covered with a coast to coast warranty on the tires we sell and install.
Darlene Pye has worked as an accounting and office manager in the glass and auto accessories industry for nearly 25 years.

Darlene loves spending time with her husband, Bernard Reeves, whether it is at home on their hobby farm or travelling.
