When Rich Dykstra opened his first auto repair shop in 1984, he knew that running a garage is about more than taking care of cars and trucks. It’s about taking care of people, too. Over 35 years later, the business is still in the family, and Rich’s belief in doing things the right way is still our guiding star.

A lot has changed since we opened our first shop in 1984. But our core values haven’t.

At GreatWater, we’re driven by a set of simple yet timeless values and beliefs. They help keep us on course, no matter what the road ahead brings.

No shortcuts or sugarcoating

We’ll earn your trust by working hard, getting to the root of the problem and giving it to you straight.

We will reward your trust

When you trust us with your vehicle, we’ll reward that trust with quality work, great service and a fair price.

Great service, always

Car trouble is never pleasant, but we’ll do everything we can to ensure your experience with us is.

Do right by our people

We attract great people by taking care of them. After all, they’re what make us great.

Passionate about people and pistons alike? Join our team.

You can judge an auto shop by how they treat their employees, and we treat ours like they’ve been in the family for decades. (In some cases, they have been.) That’s why we close on weekends and support any team member who wants to advance their career in automotive maintenance. Join the GreatWater family and build a lasting career.
