Our Proud History
Bruce Eccles and his staff have been serving the community of Dundas and the surrounding area since 1984. Eccles Auto Service Inc. is a family owned and operated business that focuses on exceptional service and quality workmanship. From day one, our policy has been to provide professional service and install only quality parts.
We service all makes and models including new and current model year vehicles. This is only possible with qualified training and accurate up-to-date information, tools and equipment. All of our technicians have computer work stations at their toolbox for the purpose of accessing computerized vehicle information systems.
This provides them with vital information to diagnose and repair your vehicle and replaces the hundreds of manuals the shop had in the past. We can handle all of your automotive service needs from emissions tests to alignments. We do all general repairs and specialize in computer diagnostics. Batteries, brakes or tires we have it covered and can even have your car detailed! We’re certain you will enjoy our newly renovated customer service area which is clean and spacious and designed with our clients in mind.
In 2001, two of our technicians, Jeff Taylor and David Jaggard, competed against hundreds of other technicians in the AC Delco Technician of the Millennium competition. Both finished in the top five (no facility has ever had two technicians finish in the top five before) to qualify for the semi finals of the competition. Jeff Taylor took first place in the Central Canadian division and went on to compete in Charlotte NC. He finished top Canadian and fifth overall in North America.
In that same year, the automotive magazine SSGM. (Service Station & Garage Management) awarded Eccles Auto Service Inc with the honour of being Canada’s 2001 Garage Of The Year. The entire staff not only feels honoured to obtain this award but proud of the symbol of accomplishment it represents. In 2003 Eccles Auto Service received a property excellence award from the city of Hamilton.Eccles Auto Service has also won numerous Readers Choice awards at both locations. Jeff Taylor won the central Canadian division of the Technician of the Millennium III and David Jaggard finished 4th. Jeff went on to compete in Las Vegas and finished in 4th place overall!! In 2006
We have always been a strong supporter of community events and activities and regularly sponsor local hockey teams. Bruce is an active member of the community.
Second only to a house, the automobile is the most expensive investment the average consumer will make. We believe this investment should be treated with the quality of service it deserves. Don’t be fooled by low advertised prices or low labour rates. A quality service facility will always have labour rates that allow for the constant upgrades of equipment and staff training as required. All good repair facilities are reinvesting in their business to stay on top of an ever changing industry. When looking for a facility, ask if you can see how their technician locates specs and information to diagnose and repair your vehicle. You may be surprised with the results to that question. Nothing is more true in the automotive service industry than the old adage, "you get what you pay for".
