In Gear Mechanical Services was warmly welcomed in Castlegar when it opened in August 2015. It provides full-service mechanical repair of cars, SUVs and light trucks, excluding body work, and special care is taken to ensure that its female clients feel comfortable in the shop environment. The facility is clean, the communication is clear and respectful, and the work is honest. Neil is the guy you tell your troubles to, Brett is the guy who fixes the problem, Erica takes care of the admin and, as business owner, Eric Van Hoogevest carries the final responsibility.
