Sam - Wayside Garage


Since he can remember, Sam has always “fixed” cars. As a kid, he would work on engines with his big brother in the garage at home, taking them apart, fixing what was needed, and putting them back together. As he grew older he committed more and more time to figuring out the ins and outs of auto repair. Sam went right to work at a local Chevrolet dealership as a lube technician and worked his way up to a General Motors certified technician. He continued working in dealerships specializing in General Motors, Cadillac, and Toyota. During that time he took a break from the dealers and started working at Wayside Garage. After 16 years of working in both dealerships and independent repair shops, he was asked to make a commitment to Wayside Garage and has been with us since. With his 25 Year Master ASE certifications and his thirty-plus years of experience, Sam is committed to making an all-around better approach to customer service and auto repair to the industry.
