Our Customer Reviews

Stand up crew. Good amount of bays and hoists. Wide range of vehicles being serviced and repaired. Had excellent service and communication. I would definitely recommend them.

Brett Mestancik Jun 6, 2024

Going to a garage by definition puts most people on edge. We all drive cars but few of us know how they work. Garages have a reputation of taking advantage of this, unfortunately. I can say this from personal experience too. On the day of my inspection appointment I had an unforeseen problem and Shane adjusted the schedule to fit me in. His explanations were clear and his manner patient, professional and polite. Contrary to many other places, the garage is clean and orderly. Just that says something about a business. My only regret is that they don't work on Westfalias...

They were amazing, they booked me in and had me on my way in no time. I appreciate great service and will be using Babe's again in the future. Thank you again Shane.

I recently booked a wheel alignment for my classic car through Shayne and Chris did the alignment. Chris did an awesome job. The car drives and handles like a dream. Chris even did some extra work for me as well. The experience was excellent. I’ve been a longtime customer of Babes and taken other classics there. I’ve always been treated awesome and the work has always been exceptional. Shout out to Chris, Shayne, Carl and Montana. Don’t hesitate to bring your classics to Babes. Barry F -Crescent Valley.

Recently had work done on three vehicles (rough spring..) by Babe's and was pleased with the outcomes.

Conrad Allgaier Jun 6, 2024

So impressed! I bought a van from Alberta and did an out of province inspection and they include a structural inspection as well. Highly recommend them.

Very satisfied with Babe's Auto breaks, bearings and suspension services on my Wilk Sport 435 trailer camper. Ground clearance increased by 2 in. I am recommending Babe's Auto to my family and friends for their needs.

I really enjoyed my experience at babes auto. I came in with a small issue looking for a diagnostic and that issue got addressed quickly and at a fair price. What impressed me most with Babes that I have never seen before from a mechanic was that aside from looking into the issue I was concerned about, I also received a link with a full inspection including pictures of each part they inspect with recommendations. Overall great shop, and great communication with the team. I will be sure to give Babes a call the next time my car is acting up and will be recommending my friends do the same

tried to do my own brake job and messed it up - Babe's got me up and running again in record time.

CVIS Immigration Consultant Canada Dec 12, 2023

Prompt, honest, professional, and they fixed our BMW X3 same day- Dec.27!! Thanks guys! Definitely recommend!

maryt Dec 12, 2023

Same great crew at a new bigger location. Excellent work at a good price. Hey, they even got me in early this last time. This is the place to go to when you need work done on your vehicle. Nice to be able to have mechanics that you can rely on when your vehicle is having a bad day. Thanks again to Johnny and Carl, as well as Shaynne for co-ordinating it all.

Dan Markin Oct 10, 2023

Great customer service. Knowledgeable staff. Fast getting your vehicle back to you and running great. Definitely will be back.

Tara Garrett Aug 8, 2023

We've been bringing our vehicles to Babe's for the past 2 years and can highly recommend. Last year, they installed new rotors and pads. After some recent warping of the rotors, they were able to obtain a warrantee replacement and install, all free of charge. Super happy with their service!

Matt MacDonald Aug 8, 2023

I had my 1976 Laguna in for a carb rebuild, brakes and tire install for the drive back to Vancouver. The car drove like a beast without any problems. Great job to the mechanics and Montana and Shaynne for making it happen!

James Ingram Aug 8, 2023

I ended up stranded in Nelson with unexpected car trouble. Called every local shop in town only to be told "Were fully booked" or "sorry we can't work on your camperized vehicle" Then I called Babe's, and had my faith in humanity restored. "We're fully booked, but if you can get to the shop early, we can do our best to look at it" was the most human response I could've received and I couldn't have been more grateful. They had me back on the road with confidence in under 3 hours. They we're kind and accommodating and honestly they saved my road trip. Babes isn't just a mechanic shop, it's a place where car guys help people with car problems. Thanks again Shane!

Awesome experience, they took a challenging repairs. In the end - great timely results. I feel they under promised and over deliveried. Highly recommend.

Mikhail Ivanchikov Feb 2, 2023

Excellent trustworthy service

Darren Pickering Dec 12, 2022

Got a vehicle inspection done, Babe's was professional and gave a very thorough report on everything they looked at. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Brett Martini Aug 8, 2022

I cannot recommend Babes enough! I have a small work fleet of older 4x4s that need lots of love to keep em running. I burn out mechanics as these poor vehicles get bush whacked constantly and often need complicated and extensive repairs.... Babe's is always up to the task. They have a friendly, professional and uber competent team that keeps me up and running. Love Babe's. Seriously cannot praise enough!

Rosie Wijenberg Jul 7, 2022

Very good shop got it done fast and for less than quoted

Rye Coombs Mar 3, 2022

Babe's went above and beyond for me locating a mysterious electrical issue in my car and I can't say enough about the great service. I would recommend them to anyone.

Lori Simon Jan 1, 2022

Babe's was great, they told me everything that was wrong with my truck and made a successful plan of attack, thanks again guys I highly recommend them.

Jesse Davis Jul 7, 2020

This auto shop was recommended to me, and I'm so glad I went to them. They were honest and fast, they got my lil motor casa in right away, no delaying. I'll recommend them to anyone who needs work done. Thanx Babe's Automotive. dolleen and bonita

Great shop, friendly service. Definitely will be back!

Bryan Keep Jun 6, 2021

Great service, very friendly! Also great inspection with a very clear report. Honest people not trying to rip your wallet off. Building trust is the best way to get more customers, this is for sure. I highly recommend it :) Thank you babe's!

Lorena Bouchard Mugica Mar 3, 2021

Always excellent and friendly service.

Paddy Duddy Feb 2, 2021

We are so happy to have found Babe's as our new local mechanic. They recently did a brake job on our older model CRV and we were impressed with how thorough they were from start to finish. The electronic condition report that they sent after seeing our car explained things carefully and included recommended (but not essential) service that we might want to consider in the future. (We felt like it was a 'heads-up' on potential trouble down the road and so appreciated this). They also responded to our worries about a strange noise that we noticed and fine-tuned our brakes a month after the original job for free. Thanks Babe's!

Michelle Rinker Jan 1, 2021

Great people to deal with. They did 2 out of province inspections for me and I was impressed with their service. I will definitely use them for my work. They really earned my business.
