25 Reasons to Choose Shade Tree Garage

  1. Shade Tree Garage has been in business in Morristown since 1975. A few years ago we moved our facility to 171 Washington Street.
  2. With advance notice, we provide free local transportation to your home, office or train station. If you prefer, we’ll arrange to pick up your car from your home or place of business. Our hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. We also have rental cars on site. We can serve you best if you make an appointment. Please call us at (973) 540-9880.
  3. At Shade Tree Garage, we all speak earth-people talk. That means when we talk to you about your car, you won’t be overwhelmed with technical jargon. More importantly, you can expect us to listen carefully to your concerns about your car and its requirements, and we’ll explain what we need to do to service your car and why the service is recommended.
  4. Even if you have a new car, Shade Tree Garage can do all your service work (anything your dealer would charge you for) while fully preserving your warranty.
  5. While we specialize in BMW, Honda, Mercedes, Toyota, Volvo, VW, Porsche, Audi, and Nissan, we can service all domestic cars and trucks — Ford, GM, and Chrysler are not foreign to us!
  6. We’re always happy to prepare a written estimate before we begin repairs and show you any worn or replaced parts when we’re finished.
  7. If all your car needs is an oil change, we can do it while you wait. With a scheduled appointment, we can perform our quick lube service and 27-point safety inspection in about a half an hour.
  8. We want to make sure you always receive a complete, easy-to-understand, itemized invoice, so we personally programmed and customized the software that generates your invoice to make everything perfectly clear.
  9. There are at least 27 important safety checks we routinely make when you bring your car in for a tune-up. These regular maintenance checks and simple service procedures can save you costly repairs later and can greatly reduce your cost of car ownership.
  10. We stand behind our work. If we replace or repair it, we guarantee it, both parts and labor, for an unprecedented thirty months or 30,000 miles, whichever comes first.
  11. Our rates are competitive with other comparable repair facilities. You pay us for expertise and integrity and you can expect to receive full value.
  12. Shade Tree Garage is a licensed New Jersey Motor Vehicle Emissions Inspection facility. We can save you the time and annoyance of waiting on line to have your car inspected.
  13. With New Jersey’s tougher motor vehicle emissions testing, you have another reason to avoid long lines at the inspection station and enjoy the convenience of Shade Tree Garage. We’ve invested nearly $40,000 in the new diagnostic equipment required by the State.
  14. Shade Tree Garage spends more than $50,000 each year on training and new equipment. We use state-of-the-art computerized testing and diagnostic equipment and we’ve made a long-term commitment to providing you with the finest service and support in the industry.
  15. Shade Tree Garage uses special federally-certified equipment to inspect and repair your car’s air conditioner. Our service technicians are federally-certified, too.
  16. Shade Tree Garage has received the General Motors Master Tech Shop designation. That means all our technicians are trained by GM professionals and that Shade Tree Garage uses only genuine AC Delco parts on GM products.
  17. Shade Tree Garage is also proud to be a Bosch Authorized Service Center. That’s a genuine honor because only 20 garages in New Jersey have the experience and high standards to win the Bosch designation! It means our technicians get training and technical support directly from Bosch, including instruction on highly specialized equipment. And, they must pass rigorous testing of their diagnostic and repair skills.
  18. The endorsements of Bosch and General Motors are echoed by the New Jersey Automobile Club (AAA), which designated Shade Tree Garage an approved service facility. In fact, in 2005, Shade Tree Garage was named AAA Approved Auto Facility of the Year.
  19. Shade Tree Garage is a member of the Mechanic’s Education Association, which provides our staff with continuing technical training. We also maintain an extensive library of reference materials and data provided by the experts in our industry.
  20. We have great contacts with other area businesses. So if you need a service that we don’t provide, like automobile body repair, car stereo or cell phone, security system, etc., we can confidently recommend someone to you.
  21. Shade Tree Garage can match or beat the price of replacement tires from any so-called tire specialty store. And since we’re not limited to one or two brands, we can help you chose the tires that are exactly right for your car.
  22. When you least expect it, we like to occasionally surprise you — but only with good surprises! That could be a free car wash, a new ice scraper, or a special contest with a fun prize. It’s just our way of saying “thank you” for being our customer. We value your business and promise to do everything we can to be worthy of your trust and confidence.
  23. We haven’t got a cracker barrel stove. But, keeping in mind that we’re an automotive repair facility, if you want to wait for your car while it’s being serviced, we can provide a hot or cold beverage, some reading material, and of course, lots of engaging conversation. We even have Wi-Fi connection!
  24. We have our own mission statement that was developed with input from every member of the staff. It includes an unwavering set of values pertaining to integrity, quality of materials, workmanship and customer service. We strive to be the gold in a field of silver and bronze.
  25. At Shade Tree Garage, we give you peace of mind about the safety and reliability of your car. It’s a fact. And it’s the best reason of all to choose Shade Tree Garage for all your automotive services.
