Our History on 1st Ave

This location is home to the original Matt’s Automotive Service Center. Prior to becoming Matt’s Automotive, this location was once Tom’s Shoe Repair. When Matt’s Automotive first began as a company, this location was rented as a two-bay shop in 2009. In 2010, it was expanded into a four-bay shop to accommodate more technicians. The land surrounding the building was purchased in 2013 for another expansion, turning the facility into an eight-bay operation. However, in January of 2019, Matt’s Automotive suffered a roof collapse. After a year of rebuilding, this location reopened in February 2020. The newest additions to this building include a service drive for customers to bring their cars into the shop without having to leave their vehicle, a large lobby with a computer station for those who like to work while waiting on their vehicles, and an upstairs classroom which can be used to connect with our amazing community. This facility was created to set a new standard in the automotive industry and we are excited to offer this space to help serve our customers.

Matt’s automotive was able to get me in on short notice, diagnose the problem, and make the appropriate repair. Their courtesy driver also was able to get me where I needed to be, so I did not miss any work! Very satisfied with their promptness, and would recommend them for any repair work needed!

Matt’s Automotive has always done a great job. We have had them work on my van and my husband’s car. Couldn’t ask for a better repair shop. Their rates are great, in comparison with several other repair shops. They are either lower or about the same. They also warranty their service work and parts. So you have the comfort that if something does go wrong they will fix it. They also can give you a ride. I couldn’t ask for better service. They are really nice people too!

I won’t take my vehicle anywhere else. I’ve had bad experiences with other places in the past, but Matt’s always does an outstanding job. They’re thorough, they do high quality work, and they’re not pushy about anything. They help quickly and look to assist you in any way they can. The customer service is incredible, and I would absolutely recommend them for all of your auto service needs.
