About Us

In 1981, Robert Decker, better known as Bob had just received an honorable discharge from the United States Marine Corps where he had served as a helicopter crew chief. Upon returning home to the area he was unable to find work in his field of aircraft engines. He went to work for a local factory doing swing shifts. During this period of time he had an auto problem and was referred to Tom's Auto Repair. After stopping by several times after his shift at the factory to find that the vehicle had not moved he asked the owner  if he could use his tools and fix his own car seeing as he had paid upfront for the repairs. The owner obliged and in turn ended up offering Bob a job.

DC Auto Service Center was founded in 1988. It was a small, two-bay repair facility with two technicians, the original partners. Since 1988, the building, the personnel and the customer base have all grown and gone through numerous changes. In 1999 the first two additional bays were added and then in 2004 the remaining four. In 2013 we purchased the property across the street from our original building and built a new facility. The new facility allowed us to expand our truck clientele and to build a spacious inviting waiting room for all our customers. 

Our team of professional technicians are ASE Certified (Automotive Service Excellence Certification). Our senior automotive technicians both hold ASE Master, L1 certifications and have been a part of our team for over 18 years. They specialize in computer diagnostics and electrical problems. Our senior diesel technician joined us over 10 years ago and is a Master ASE Medium/Heavy Duty Certified technician with over 30 years of experience. 

We pride ourselves in having fair prices and performing quality work. We recently became a Tech-Net Professional Auto Facility (Tech-Net) which allows us to offer a NATIONWIDE 2 year/24,000 mile warranty whichever comes first when traveling more than 25 miles / 40 kilometers from the original TECH-NET PROFESSIONAL AUTO SERVICE® repair facility. Within 25 miles all repairs and labor are covered under our in house warranty program of  1 year/12,000 miles. The Tech-Net affiliation also allows us to offer our customers ToYourRescue Roadside Assistance Program (ToYourRescue).
