Local Heroes Upgrades Corona Shop Customer Waiting Room & Office

We are pleased to announce some Nice Improvements to our Petaluma Corona Shop Location.  Specifically, we have recently remodeled our Customer Waiting Area and Office area.  The upgrade project was started over the Holidays and recently completed in mid January.  Most of the work was done in-house and all of our employees contributed in some way with the design and work.  It involved building new walls, closing in the ceiling, fresh paint, a new floor, upgraded electrical work and lighting, upgrading the customer restroom, upgrading the computer services and furniture.  One cool thing was taking the original entrance door to the original building when it was built and refinishing it and reinstalling it as the door to the restroom.  It originally came from a local farm building and the door itself is made of wood and estimated to be close to 100 years old.  

Please stop by and say hello.  We now offer hot coffee and drinks as well as cold beverages, Improved WiFi, TV and comfortable couches for when our customers wait to have their car repairs, Smogs, oil changes and tires done.  We also now stock Batteries, wipers, belts, all types of filters and other auto parts to cut down on the time our customers have to wait for simple services.

Freddy's ToolBox Blog - Car & Truck Tips, Insight & Articles "Buy Local & Tire Talk"

December 2, 2015 - Issue #2

In this 2nd issue, I'm writing about the benefits of Buying Local in Petaluma and have integrated it with some tire information and tips.  I’m using this space on our home page, instead of more ads, to bring regular feature stories, tips and updates on the things I see in the auto repair business and changes that are always occurring that can affect our our community, customers and all consumers.  I hope it will bring insight and useful information to everyone.  Having been in this business for over 30 years I can honestly say I’ve seen a lot, the good and the bad, as it concerns keeping your cars, trucks, RV’s in a safe and good running condition.   Please read more here in Issue #2 or find it under the About Tab above, under News Center.  Thanks for reading, Freddy. 

History of Local Heroes Auto Repair & Service in Petaluma, CA

We were established as Freddy Blues Local Heroes auto Repair in 1995.  It all started for Freddy when he was about 8. His Dad would fix all of their cars, and the neighbor’s cars too. He couldn't keep Freddy away. Fast forward 40 years and Freddy still can't keep away.  Originally only a mobile service, your "Local Hero", a term coined by a few of his first customers and many more since, he would fix the car where it broke.  He has now changed the name to Local Heroes Auto Repair & Service as it’s more than just him now, but rest assured our staff has the same passion Freddy has for quality. He has expanded and settled into 2 shops now in Petaluma on both sides of town. He has been in business 10 years now and looks forward to giving the community he grew up in the best auto repair available anywhere.  Always honest, always fair. His motto and the Local Heroes motto is: “Integrity is Earned One Job at a Time”.
