Let me start by saying Thank You for taking the time to visit our website to find out more about our incredible service business. Since 1969, when my father Merv started Eastside Auto Service, we have been commited to providing an exceptional service experience for thousands of customers that called us their automotive repair facility of choice. Over those 40 years we have never taken that commitment lightly, and continue to increase our service offerings to consistently enhance the value of our service experience.

As an independent service facility, it has been an incredible journey to get to where we are today. It all started with a two-bay service facility in 1969. That has now grown to a seven-bay facility, employing eight incredible service staff that are ready to meet all your vehicle service and repair needs. We continually send our staff for training on the most advanced vehicle technologies, and keep our facility neat, clean and organized in order to maintain the quality of service our customers have come to expect and appreciate. I can assure you that you will receive the same consistent service when you decide to trust us with all of your vehicle repair and service needs.

One of our newest service offerings is our Eastside Auto Sales and Leasing Division. Located right next door to our service facility, we inventory some of the best previously owned vehicles for sale or lease. These vehicles have been hand picked by us due to the incredible condition of the vehicle. They go through a very thorough inspection before being offered for sale. We even offer brand new vehicles of any make and model for sale or lease. Simply give us a call if you are in the market for a replacement vehicle.

The business side of my life is absolutely great, but even better is my family life and the many outreach opportunities that Eastside Auto Service has been able to provide. Together with my wife and three children, we are able to offer short term foster care for newborn children through an incredible private adoption agency. It is so awesome to be able to work with everyone from the birth parents, to the adoptive parents, and see such incredible life stories take shape. I am so proud of my entire family, including our three young children, and how they all come together to provide love, guidance, and support for these little angels gracing our home. It has truly been an amazing experience, and one that we will be involved with for many years to come. I think we have had about 15 newborn children visit our home in the last two and a half years.

Another outreach opportunity has come from a short term visit that I had to the Village of Hope in Burkina Faso, West Africa. I was at a point in my life that I needed a bit of a shake up and reality check. This visit definitely did just that!! You know, it is so easy to take for granted all that we have available to us in this great country, and in many ways we should never feel guilty about that. However, it is also our responsibility to look for opportunities to provide for those that are less fortunate than us. During my visit to the Village of Hope, we identified a need for vocational training that would allow these young children to learn a trade in order to provide for themselves in the future. I took this need to heart and decided to start a project called “Auto Repair Shop-In-A-Box”. We are in the process of converting a 40 foot shipping container into a fully operational vehicle repair facility. Through very generous donations from like minded automotive repair facility owners and their technicians, I have received generous donations of equipment and tools to outfit this project. I have had donations from as far away as Little Rock Arkansas, and product just keeps coming in. You can read more about this project under the “Outreach” link on this website. If you are in a position to offer any support, I would personally love to hear from you.

There is so much more I would like to tell you about our incredible company, but the best way is to experience it is for yourself. We would appreciate the opportunity to meet you, and get to know you as a person. Building lasting relationships with our valued customers is something we do best. We look forward to meeting you soon!
