  • Finding a trustworthy and knowledgeable mechanic/shop is difficult! Gertie's Garage is our "go to" for anything for our vehicles! They have proven that they are the premier shop in the area. They listen to your concerns about your vehicle and take the time to explain what what is wrong and show it to you so you can see for yourself and they explain the best course of action to handle it. Whether its PM work or a significant mechanical issue. They use the most up to date technologies and equipment which is very important for some of the European and Japanese vehicles. No doubt, this is the best shop I have ever had do work on my vehicles. Service is top notch!

    I did but here goes again. I made a very substantial investment on a 2009 mercedes, and with a shop new too me. As it turns out, the results were very satisfactory the car run better than I can remember. Picking a mechanic for the first time is a crazy shoot. This shop did a fine job and my car will return as needed. They are very good.

    A significant amount of work was done, far more than I expected, although not to say it wasn't needed. They took a great deal of time explaining the work to be done and the cost. The dealer serviced the car for years and I am disappointed they let this work slide. All in all, I am satisfied with the work and the upfront way it was handled. The long and short. I will continue to do business, am pleased with the experience.

    Great experience working with Damian and Gertie’s Garage. The level of service and communication is fantastic every step of the way! I’ll continue to have my Mercedes serviced at Gertie’s with confidence that it’ll get done correctly and to a very high standard!

    Great service. I had just purchased this car and wanted to have them inspect it for any issues. The report was 8 pages long and gave me in detail any issues with the car. Damian then provided a plan of action and full cost for each item. I will be using Galloping Gertie's Garage next time I have an issue.

    Won't take my car back to a Benz dealership ever! Galloping Gertie's is way more affordable, everyone is super friendly and professional. So happy I found such a great place to take my car!

    I brought my car in for an air suspension malfunction after paying the Mercedes dealership in Bellevue to give me a vague diagnosis with no real solution. After declining the dealership's services I brought my car here. My first impression was that Damian is a competent mechanic, which gave me confidence that he would be able to take care of the issue with my car. I say this because of his emphasis on good, clear communication. Sure enough, he diagnosed the problem quickly, explained what exactly the issue was, and got my car fixed and back to me in short turnaround. After I picked up my vehicle I took it down south on a road-trip with my family. The car runs great with no issues.

    Completed thorough diagnostics and inspection during my routine service appointment. Technicians found items in need of attention beyond the normal Mercedes-Benz oil change and service requirements. I promptly received an email of the inspection results followed by a phone call to discuss the issues at hand. Galloping Gertie's then leaves the decisions on what work, you the vehicle owner, want to be accomplished. No pressure sales here. I elected to have several items repaired and was very happy the work was completed in one day. Oh ... on the drive home, my ML400 felt better than new. Fantastic shop, and I don't have to deal with "the bridge" and Tacoma traffic. Strongly recommend!

    Damien analyzed the entire car, identified all those things in good condition, in O.K. condition and those that needed work either urgently for safety reasons, or Items that if tender too soon would be much more expensive later. He was amenable to various options and made many excellent suggestions about what to fix now and what to defer. He was very knowledgeable and very easy to work with.

    Very pleased with the detail and expertise. I wanted to get my oil changed which includes a very thorough comprehensive review of the engine and all systems. If you are comparing prices with an oil change garage, don’t call them. If you want to keep your car in tip top shape, I highly recommend them based on my experience.

    Damian and Gertie’s performed an impressively comprehensive PPI on the vehicle I was considering purchasing. So comprehensive, in fact, that I’ve decided to stick to Japanese cars. But if you’ve the mettle for European marques, it’s hard to imagine a more knowledgeable and detail-oriented shop.

    I recently purchased this Mercedes powered Dodge Sprinter and wanted to bring all maintenance up to date. Damian at Galloping Gertie's listened to my concerns, performed a diagnostic service, recommended some services I had not thought of, and recommended that some items on my list really didn't need to be performed yet. I appreciate honesty, and competence. I found both in abundance at Galloping Gertie's. I recommend them for whatever work you may need on a Mercedes product.

    Damian was quick, efficient, and very knowledgeable about my Mercedes. He resolved an issue my car was having with burning through oil too quickly, which I wouldn’t have ever expected the Mercedes dealership to catch and notify me of. Because of that, I have peace of mind that my car is in great condition, and look forward to returning again for my next service. Additionally, I was really impressed by the inspection report he provides. It’s easy to understand, and helps you understand what services are recommended and at what frequency. By doing so, you only pay for what you need, which is definitely a win in my book.

    Damien was knowledgeable, professional, and very pleasant to deal with. We wanted a pre-purchase inspection on an auto we were considering purchasing. The inspection was very thorough and informative. Damien also spent time going over each inspection item to give us specific details. Although a bit tricky to find, the shop was clean and neat--an added bonus! We would highly recommend Galloping Gertie's Garage.

    Damian took the time to review a Pre Purchase Inspection Report item by item. He also gave me a tour of the shop and explained how various machines were used to perform repairs. I was satisfied with the service and will be a repeat customer.

    This is the place to bring your Mercedes too. What an exceptional experience, from the high quality of workmanship to the extremely clean garage. I am a snowbird live in Gig Harbor four months a year and Arizona eight months. I drive my 2004 SL 500 back and forth. If I have anymore problems while in Az I'll wait until I get back to Gig Harbor to have Galloping Gerties to work on my car. Damien the owner could not have been nicer. He explained in detail what needed to be done. The total cost actually came in lower than I was quoted. A happy customer

    Recently I had my Mercedes serviced at Galloping Gertie's Garage, I am impressed with the attention my car received from the time I brought it in. The car was inspected and service prioritized according to importance of necessary service, safety being top concern. A report was emailed providing recommended service. My goal was to be able to get the car and drive it anywhere, that goal has been accomplished. Damian's shop is a testament of his dedication to providing unprecedented service and value unmatched in my experience anywhere. It's worth my time and money to have the peace of mind provided at Galloping Gertie's Garage. If you are looking for an honest, passionate, no nonsense approach, I suggest you look no further. Thank you Damian.
