Eastside Auto Service has proudly provided auto care to the Oakville community for almost five decades opening its doors on Chartwell Road in March, 1969. Partners Merv Colling and Jack Moed, started Eastside with a two-bay service facility and used car sales business.
In 1992 Merv's son Glenn officially joined the Eastside team. With a degree in Automotive Management & Marketing, Glenn also decided to get his mechanic’s license. Glenn officially took over the shop when his dad semi-retired in 2000. A fresh approach to the automotive repair business, combined with old-fashioned customer service, has been the trademark of Eastside Auto Service for five decades.
Eastside Auto Service believes in giving back to the community. Locally, they support the Halton Regional Police Service Toys For Tots program every Christmas. Globally they support the Christian Children’s Fund by sponsoring three children and their families in Burkina Faso, West Africa. Glenn also pioneered an initiative called Auto Repair Shop-in-a-Box in February 2011, a project that provides automotive training for young men and women in Burkina Faso who are looking for a career in vehicle repair.
Growing with the times
A second location
In 2014 Glenn purchased a second auto repair facility from long time friend and business associate Gino Paccione. Formerly Fourth Line Auto Service, our Speers Road location was founded in 1979 and continues to be managed by Gino’s brother John. As our Speers Road facility undergoes a significant façade restoration, we continue to serve our customers with the same friendly smile that they've been used to for four decades. Both facilities embrace the same commitment to state-of-the-art systems and new technologies, combined with a solid foundation in family values and customer service that are the hallmark of Eastside Auto Service.
Oakville Counts On
Eastside Auto Service
Eastside Auto Service is no longer the modest two-bay operation from the 1960s. With two great facilities and a dedicated team of 18, including licensed technicians, service advisors and managers it's no wonder that Eastside Auto Service was awarded "Small Business of the Year" by the Oakville Chamber of Commerce in 2014.
