NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ – Remember the old days, when you could take your car in for service, where they called you by name, where you could sit in the sunshine with a cup of coffee, and chat with the mechanic when he handed you back your keys?

There’s still a place you can do that.

Yes, really.

Gelormini’s Auto Repair in New Providence is that kind of place. Gelormini’s calls itself the “dealer alternative,” and it’s perfect for people who are tired of being shuttled in and out of the dealership when they take their car in for service, people who don’t appreciate being known by nothing more personal than the make and model of their car.

“We live here too,” says owner Mike Gelormini. “We treat our customers like they’re our friends and neighbors, because they are.”

Gelormini’s is family owned and operated since 1994, and they are known throughout the area for their personal service that’s unlike any other experience you’ve had with an auto repair shop. If you are having quick work done on your car and you want to wait, there’s a cafe table and cushioned chairs outside where you can relax in the sunshine. If you’re in a hurry, they have a fleet of loaner cars to get you back on the road.

Gelormini’s may not be a large repair shop, but it’s convenient and the service is friendly. From smiling Becky in the front office to Mike’s mom who handles the paperwork, Gelormini’s is a warm and reassuring place to do business. And the quality of their workmanship is top-rate.

“We don’t believe in surprises,” Mike says. “We focus on customer education and promoting safety and maintenance. We believe our customers should understand their car needs and should be informed before anything is done on their vehicle. For this very reason, we will go over what auto repair service your car needs before we start on it.”

Gelormini’s smaller size puts them in a position to provide the best level of customer service and attention to detail. They have a wealth of repeat customers who come back for the kind of personal service and convenience that’s only possible in a neighborhood setting.

Customers are also glad to learn that Gelormini’s isn’t some discount-rate auto shop that is going to do a mediocre job on their car or even void the warranty. Gelormini mechanics are ASE certified and provide factory-recommended services, even during the warranty period.

Among the services Gelormini’s offers are:

  • Air Conditioning
  • Accessories, Belt, Hose and Filter Replacement
  • Brakes
  • Cooling System Service
  • Courtesy Check-Up
  • Drivability Diagnostics
  • Electrical System Diagnosis and Service Emissions

Logic and Sensible Spending Take Priority

May 24, 2018

Logic.  It's what people use when endeavoring to complete things in the most sensible order.  Everyone knows that "logic" means sequencing events in a formulaic, predictable manner.  We learned this at a young age, as we observed Star Trek on TV and came to understand why Captain James T. Kirk relied on Spock as his first officer because his strategic plans were ...

The Evaluation of the College Search

It’s is a bizarre time of year as a college counselor as I find myself at both the beginning and end of this process.  Sophomores and juniors are excitedly and idealistically starting to consider what will be important to them in a school.  At the same time, while only separated by a year or two, my seniors have all committed within the past month to a school and have spent the ...

In past generations, retirement planning didn’t involve very much. You stopped work ...

Don’t Make These Three Mistakes About Social Security

Social Security has been around for decades and it’s not about to disappear. Why? Social Security is not an entitlement ("gift") that can be taken away - it’s a forced savings scheme that Americans pay into in their working years in order to secure a pension for life. Ideally, Social Security should not be your sole source of income in retirement but even comfortable ...
