Bernie’s Automotive Service History
Family Owned & Operated in Ballard Since 1963
We have been family owned and operated on the corner of 8th and Leary in Ballard since 1963. Bernie’s Automotive opened their doors the same day Bernie Johnson was married. Undoubtedly a day Bernie will not forget! In the earlier days, the shop also served as a gas station, and Bernie’s young son Troy began helping out with the family business by pumping gas and sweeping the shop floors. Over time, Troy learned his father’s trade and in 1995 took over management. By this time Bernie’s had eliminated fuel sales and directed its focus entirely on automotive repair.
Today Bernie’s Automotive stands as a solid landmark in the Ballard community. Though the original full-serve bell still hangs from the wall in the center of the shop, its surroundings have evolved to meet the needs of time. By hiring skilled professionals and investing in state of the art equipment, tools, and training we have enabled ourselves to offer the very best in automotive care. Our team is dedicated not only to quality workmanship but also to serving the individual needs of our customers through friendly, good old-fashioned customer service. At the same time, we are proud to remain rooted to our history. We owe our success to the people and businesses that have supported us throughout the years.
