When it comes to the way your vehicle is maintained and monitored, a lot has changed in 40 years.
You’re rare these days if you can do your own work, and that makes it even more important to find someone you can trust to keep your car or truck on the road and operating smoothly.
Forty years ago Dave Foreman opened up his auto repair shop in Langley and, with the help of his wife Cheryl and his dedicated staff, built a service operation that area residents grew to rely on, especially as technology changed.
Today, son Peter runs the shop, now known as Foreman’s Integra Tire Auto Centre. Along with his staff of advisors and technicians, he’s maintaining that reputation for providing quality service and helping you understand what’s happening with your vehicle.
“Generally customers come in for a problem they can’t fix themselves, whether it’s a light out, or a clunking or something not running right,” Peter says. “We help you learn about your vehicle and try to smash that knowledge barrier between the shop and the driver.”
Modern methods keep you up to date
Not only does Foreman’s employ the latest technologies for diagnosing problems, repairing and maintaining your vehicle, modern communications keep you in the loop about your job.
“We’re completely paperless in the shop, with everyone on tablets and PCs out there,” Peter says. Not only is your bill emailed to you (paper copies are available upon request), regular updates can be texted right to your cell phone. “It helps keep the customer in control of their time,” he adds.
High marks from your fellow drivers
Knowing that other people trust and rely on a shop can be an important first step before choosing where to have your vehicle repaired or maintained. Foreman’s ranks highly in the customer ratings department, scoring 4.9 out of 5 on both Google and Facebook.
You’ll find a relaxed environment
Whether you’re shopping for tires or wheels or needing routine maintenance like an oil and lube job, a tune-up, brakes or muffler work or more, it’s nice to find a low-pressure shop where the trust factor is high, just like the technology level. “We’re in a tech industry, not just an automotive trade,” Peter says. “The cars that people drive these days are already in the digital age.”
