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.
