About Portside Auto Services

Locally owned and operated.

Proud reputation of quality workmanship at an affordable price.

Strive for customer satisfaction.

We believe that every customer is unique and believe that every customer is valuable. Each customer is treated with kindness, fairness and respect.

  • We believe in saving you money

    Although our technicians are more than capable of handling the most difficult auto repairs, we hope to save you and your loved ones money through regular maintenance. We make this a priority in order to prevent costly repairs for our customers in the future. We want to see you coming in for maintenance services and not being pulled in by a tow truck. A tow truck means only bad things for you: a lot of inconvenience, a lot more expense, and maybe less safety when you're stranded on the side of the road.

  • We believe in maintenance

    We love our customers. We want the best for you and proper maintenance is far better for you than repairs. Maintenance is able to be scheduled, repairs usually can not. Maintenance is affordable, repairs are often very expensive compared to the maintenance that prevents them. Maintenance doesn't require a tow truck unlike some repairs. Maintenance means less inconvenience and stress because your vehicle can be in and out quicker. Maintenance also increases your car's resale value, extends its life and it allows you to choose when you're trading in your car, rather than being forced to when you face a big repair bill.

    We have enjoyed continued growth throughout the years for one good reason: We treat our customers like we treat our family!

  • Full Service Auto Repair and Maintenance

    We are a full service auto repair shop and can handle your auto repair, auto maintenance, warrant of fitness inspections, tyres and body work needs. We have invested heavily in the training, equipment and resources that allow our Qualified Technicians do the job right the first time. Some companies cut so many corners in these ways that they resort to guessing on which part will fix the problem. It may be cheaper for those shops in the short run, but in the long run it costs everyone more money. We love seeing our customers come in, but for the right reasons - not because of poor quality standards.

2 year auto repair warranty

We're So Confident We Give a 2 Year Warranty!

While most shops have a repair warranty that is only a few days or months, we easily provide you with a much longer warranty on our repairs. Because of the quality of parts and fluids we use, the high skill level of our technicians and the diagnostic resources we employ, we can make our warranty much longer.

Our Peace of Mind repair warranty is a 2 years or 20,000 kilometres for most repairs and services.

Call today for an appointment or just to ask questions, you'll be glad you did!
