Go Automotive opened its doors May 18, 2009 under the ownership of husband and wife team Ashley and Amy Gilbert. With Ashley's technical
experience and Amy's business experience, it only made sense to combine those efforts to create an auto repair business that focused on repair accuracy and customer service. And what a better time to do so than in the midst of a major economic crisis. In a time when consumers were (and still are) deciding to keep vehicles longer to save money, rather than trade them in for a newer model and bigger payment, The Gilberts invested in the proper equipment and technology, opened their doors, and have been helping customers keeps their vehicles going ever since.




We hope that as you search for the right shop for your family or vehicle fleet, you will consider Go Automotive. We will work hard for you, and provide reasonable, dependable, and efficient service. We are here to Keep You Going!
