Customer Service

While providing expert car care is essential, we pride ourselves on our customer service. A shop is defined by the people that work there and the amount of attention that we give to our customers. We always go above and beyond when it comes to taking care of our customers. There is no question we can’t answer and no job too small that we would overlook when it comes to your vehicle. Being family owned and operated allows us to cultivate community within our shop to provide you with expert customer service like you’ve never seen before.

Auto Repair

Repairing your vehicle can seem like a scary ordeal if you don’t know much about cars. What was that noise your car just made? Is this something serious? How long will my vehicle be out of commission for repairs? Fortunately, Auto Alternative has you covered for auto repairs and information about your vehicle service. Our friendly team of technicians are here to help you with your auto repair needs. We explain the diagnosis, as well as the repair process to our customers, so they can understand what needs to be done. We will have your vehicle serviced in no time so that you can get back onto the road.


Our expert team of car technicians are here to give you an accurate estimate of repair costs. We continue to provide a fair breakdown of what repairs will end up costing you. Though the price will vary depending on repair costs, we aim to beat our competitors’ prices every time.


The fear of estimates is what often causes people to avoid the repair shop altogether. High repair costs can most certainly cause anxiety for people who are unfamiliar with car repair. However, we offer customers a 6-month interest-free deferred payment plan as an option for vehicle repairs. We also accept all major credit cards, as well as cash for your convenience.
