Vancouver Automotive Repairs - Ootmar Automotive

Owner, Al Eskesen, learned the trade with Ootmar in 1977 when his uncle owned the business. Al has been the owner of Ootmar since 1984 and prides the business in providing employment for his long standing staff over these many years of operation.

Al describes that at Ootmar Automotive,  we truly understand the challenges that vehicle owners face in finding a qualified car repair specialist. That’s why we go to exceptional lengths to ensure that we provide a level of service that is superior to that offered by   our competitors and local dealers. Our excellent industry reputation is the result of our business integrity and our honesty with customers, as well as our technical expertise that helps enables professional repairs to be completed within the estimated timeframe.

Our reputation in the industry is enhanced by the following:

Our Commitment to Energy Efficiency

Ootmar Automotive auto shop is environmentally aware! We recycle virtually everything produced from servicing and repairing your vehicle. This would include fluids, metal, tires, cardboard and plastics.  We never waiver in our approach to operations management, and continuously look to improve the energy efficiency and environmental responsibilities within our work. This is why the company has achieved many awards within the industry for its commitment to environmentalism. For example, we’re a two-time AirCare Quality Repair Award winner. And we have 5-star rating from the Burrard Inlet Environmental Act Program.

Our Commitment to Working with Leading Equipment Vendors

Our experience within the car repair field means that we have an in-depth network of affiliations within the industry. Our network includes connections with the leading repair equipment makers and manufacturers of vehicle parts to ensure that our team always has access to the best available solutions on the marketplace. By working with some of the industry’s most trusted vendors, we’ve been able to continuously improve the quality of repair workmanship as the company moves forward.
