Thanks to all our clients for your patronage!!
We greatly enjoyed being able to serve the OKC metro community for nearly 3 years and hope to be able to return. Due to Military comittment we have moved the shop to florida in order to keep our family together and support my wife's military career. Thank you all for the years of support and growth and we hope the Florida location will do well enough to be able to expand back to OKC & beyond at some point in the future.

A young single mother shares her experience: "I came in to do an oil change. I was amazed at how patient Jay? I think was his name, was at showing me everything about my car and telling me step by step on how to do it. Yes I could have paid someone to do it for me but the fact that I did it made it even better. You can tell he loves his job and loves teaching people!"
Another lady shares: "The Shade Tree Garage is a fantastic place. They do a real service for people. They tell you how to do stuff and help. They are wonderful!"
A USAF Veteran relates: "I was in the Military for 13 years and currently work at Tinker A.F.B.. The idea for this type of business is great. The military has always had a recreation center DIY garage at every Military installation here and overseas. I live in a house with a garage and can perform many jobs on my vehicle at home, but there are those times that I might need a lift to do the work or I do not have the proper tools. Your business fits the bill it is also great for those that live in apartment complexes or trailer courts and do not have a garage. I hope you expand and locate into empty car dealerships around town and into other cities. You can fill a great need."
one man wrote: "Im a single dad raising two kids, due to an on the job injury im on a fixed income,I was in need of some repair work on my car that other garages were asking well over $1500 to do, I heard about The Shade Tree DIY garage offering help to those less fortunate on a local news chanel, I went to The Shade Tree DIY garage and got both axles replaced, ball joints replaced on both sides, and front brakes did, all to a total of $263.00 just a fraction of what it would have cost me had I decided to go with some of the other offers. Words cannot express how grateful I am to the shops owner and the volunteer mechanics that came out and assited, I was also able to help in doing some of the repairs which was quite an experience. Again; my graditude can not extend out enough to you guys. God bless you and keep doing what your doing for the community."
