At Bernards’s Garage. We are committed to provide you quality service. Your automobile investment is protected best when maintained by ASE certified technicians.


When my grandpa opened Bernard’s Garage, Inc., in downtown Milwaukie back in June of 1925, he probably could not even imagine what cars would be like today.

Back then, Grandpa would go into his small machine shop and make his own parts. That’s what it took to meet his customer’s needs. The world has changed a lot since Grandpa opened the shop. Milwaukie’s dirt roads have been paved, and horses are seldom tied to the hitching rings on Main Street.

But what hasn’t changed is our dedication to meeting our customer’s needs. At Bernard’s Garage, the technician who works on your vehicle is still the key to quality work.

Today’s cars are much more complicated than the ones Grandpa and Dad worked on. They’re loaded with computers and high tech equipment. Yesterday’s “mechanics” are the “technicians” of today.

Our technician’s skills, knowledge and experience allow them to keep your vehicle in top condition for years. Our staff is GM-trained, and has earned Automotive Service Excellence certification.

They’re highly experienced in working on a wide range of foreign and domestic automobiles, with more than 80 years of combined experience. Our state-of-the-art facility is designed to serve you efficiently.

We know that being without your vehicle can be inconvenient. That’s why we make every effort to get your vehicle back on the road as quickly as possible.

Part of what makes Bernard’s Garage so efficient is that we operate our own parts store, adjacent to our shop. We invite you to stop by the store when you need high quality replacement parts from such companies as AC Delco, Bosch, BCA Bearings, Dayco, Felpro or Raybestos.

One of the most important services we offer is the regular maintenance that all vehicles require.

We provide oil and filter changes, chassis lubrication, safety checks, hose and belt inspection – virtually everything you need to keep your vehicle running in top condition and maintain the manufacturer’s warranty.

Some of the services we offer:

  • Tire rotation, balancing and replacement
  • Air conditioning system work
  • DEQ\certified repair facility
  • Tune-ups
  • Brakes
  • Computerized estimating
  • Vehicle management program
  • Four-wheel alignment
  • Vehicle computer diagnosis and repair
  • Sandblasting
  • Welding

My grandfather and father understood the importance of giving back to the community, and Bernard’s Garage continues to participate and assist in Milwaukie activities.

We’re doing our part for the community and the environment.

Working to protect the environment is also nothing new for our shop. We strive to recycle all automotive components, including used motor oil and air conditioning refrigerant.
