50 Years and Counting
Eastside Auto Service has come a long way from the modest two-bay operation in the 1960’s. Eastside Auto Service has provided comprehensive auto care to the Oakville community since opening its doors on Chartwell Road in March, 1969, and are proudly serving the third generation of families. When partners Merv Colling and Jack Moed, started Eastside Auto Service as a humble two-bay service facility and used car sales business, their dedicated commitment to their community laid the foundation for becoming the award-winning automotive shop it is today.
Family Values at Eastside
In 1992, Merv’s son Glenn officially joined the Eastside team. Armed with a degree in Automotive Management, Marketing, and his mechanic’s license; Glenn followed his passion to continue to build on his fathers’ vision. Glenn officially took over the shop in 2000 and brought with him a fresh approach to the automotive repair business, combined with old-fashioned customer service, which has served as the trademark of Eastside Auto Service for five decades. Committed to the Community.
COMMITTED TO COMMUNITY
Eastside Auto Service believes in giving back and helping to make a positive change. Locally, we support the Halton Regional Police Service Toys For Tots program every Christmas with the great help of the Oakville community. And globally we support the Christian Children's Fund by sponsoring three children and their families in Burkina Faso, West Africa.
Glenn also pioneered an initiative called Auto Repair Shop-in-a-Box in February 2011, a project that provides automotive training for young men and women in Burkina Faso who are looking for a career in vehicle repair.
GROWING WITH THE TIMES A SECOND LOCATION
In 2014 Glenn purchased a second auto repair facility from long-time friend and business associate Gino Paccione. Formerly Fourth Line Auto Service, our Speers Road location was founded in 1979 and continues to be managed by Gino’s brother John. As our Speers Road facility undergoes a significant facade restoration, we continue to serve our customers with the same friendly smile that they’ve been used to for four decades. Both facilities embrace the same commitment to state-of-the-art systems and new technologies, combined with a solid foundation in family values and customer service that is the hallmark of Eastside Auto Service.
