    Ralph starter his career working in independent repair shops and soon moved on to BMW Dealerships. After 10 years as a Master Technician and Shop Foreman he decided to branch out on his own and start a business he could be proud of.

    Ralph opened European Import Repair in 2010 and found they were welcomed with open arms. With the overwhelming support of both the community and surrounding areas, he had to expand the business to a larger facility - which is now thriving on Route 17M in Chester.

    European Import Repair specializes in quality work (using only OEM parts) and providing superior service without the dealership prices. They realize that finding a repair shop you can trust is a difficult task. That is why they have made it their priority not only to gain that trust, but to maintain it.

    Love European Import Repair! This is a great place to take care of your mercedes...super team and super knowledgeable. You will not find a shop with better customer service....they even helped to diagnose an issue I had when I was 200 miles away driving my car down I-95!! Now that's customer service. From the front of house to the mechanics I give them a 10/10.

    I can't say enough how grateful I am for European Import Repair!!! I brought my C300 to them after being told by the dealer that I needed rear pads and rotors right away. I spoke with Michelle and she told me she would have a technician inspect the vehicle and have the parts on hand for my appointment. After reviewing my brakes Michelle walked me into the shop and introduced me to the technician working on my car who further explained and physically showed me that my brakes were not at all ready for replacement yet! I have been a customer ever since! These guys are the real deal, friendly and HONEST! I will forever be a customer!
