In the spring of 1995, Dave left his job at a local dealership when he realized he couldn’t give his customers the type of service they truly deserved. After a summer watching “Great Chefs of the World”, cooking some of the best food his family has ever eaten, and performing maintenance for dedicated clients in his garage at home, Dave’s Garage was born.
The first shop was located behind Wares Auto Sales, and included one garage bay and a small desk for writing up service tickets. Eventually Dave was so busy that Wares gave him an ultimatum, and in 1996, we moved to our current location on Hastings Street. Our facility required quite a bit of sprucing up, and it was definitely a family affair. The wife and kids painted while Dave directed the installation of four lifts, parts storage, and technician workstations.
Today the shop has 4 talented ASE Certified Master Technicians, and over 100 years of combined service experience. We have worked on classic cars, exotic vehicles, and all types of foreign and domestic automobiles. Our techs are always privy to the latest training opportunities and scan tool technologies, assuring that they are well versed in the complex language your vehicle is speaking.
Our lobby is comfortable and clean, stocked with great reading material (including today’s version of the local paper), cable television, and wireless internet. Beverages are available upon request, and we’re constantly getting compliments on our restroom facilities – you’ll just have to come by and see for yourself!
