Fred Tremblay, the second of four generations in the business, opened a second location at 16th and Macdonald in 1981, where he worked with his two sons, Ron and Steve.
The Garage as we know it today was established in 1984, when Fred Tremblay, Ron Tremblay’s father decided to secure the future of the business by moving from 16th and Macdonald Street, where they rented the Chevron garage, and bought the premises at 24th and MacDonald Street in Vancouver. This is what the place looked like when Fred bought it. Lots to do…!
Early on, The Garage became known for its expertise and willingness to take on unusual projects. Here’s Ron Tremblay with his father, Fred – and a rather unusual car. Do you know what make and year this car is? Fill in the form below with your answer. If you are correct, we’ll enter your name for a draw for an introductory inspection and service – on the house!
A strong team with impeccable values has always been at the centre of the culture of The Garage. That’s one reason why customers stay with us for many years.
Time for celebration! Well, we figured 30 years of serving the Vancouver Lower Mainland was quite an achievement, so we invited our loyal customers to party with us at 24th and Macdonald!
All of our staff are highly qualified to work on a wide range of vehicles and they are continually learning new skills and procedures as vehicles become more complex and advanced.
