3rd Generation Family Owned Business.
Signal Garage Auto Care is a family owned full-service automotive repair shop serving clients all over the Twin Cities. We have been in business for 3 generations, since the early twenties when Trygve Wessel got in to the car repair business in West Saint Paul. He built his first service garage at the corner of Annapolis and Dodd (on the border of St Paul and W. St. Paul). The business has grown, moved, expanded, and been purchased by Trygve’s granddaughter Heidi and her husband Rami Derhy.
4th Generation just joined.
Rami has worked as a mechanic since 1983 when the shop was owned by Fred Wessel (Heidi’s father); in 1998 the Derhy’s bought the business enabling Fred to retire to a warmer climate. Heidi is working in the business too, just as her grandmother did handling all the bookkeeping. Now the 4th generation is on-board as well adding our son. Avi graduated from Dakota County Technical College as a technician joined us recently, and has been a great asset and has done a phenomenal job in carrying the load of our busy auto repair and maintenance business.
In 2007 we bought Brenna Rustproofing & Exhaust, a specialty exhaust and automotive rustproof business that was in the back of our building. We merged the two businesses together and now we are able to accommodate the high demand for a quality auto repair business, serving clients from the surrounding cities and neighborhoods; St Paul, West St. Paul, So. St. Paul, Mendota Heights, Inver Grove Heights, Sunfish Lake, Eagan and many other clients who come from all over the Twin Cities.
In February 2011 we opened our second shop on Grand and Cleveland in St Paul. Avi our son is now working at that store. We are very thankful for the opportunity to serve more people and to offer the same female friendly environment at that location.
Our staff is highly trained in automotive maintenance and repair as well as caring for people. We also have specific training implemented for working with women as we are the only Female Friendly Shop in the cities. Our technicians are nationally certified. Additionally,we have an import auto specialist, a Hybrid specialist, a Diesel specialist and of course all of our technicians are highly trained to repair and maintain domestic cars as well. All of us are here to offer expert diagnosis and advice, as well as fast and accurate repair.
We truly believe that an educated client is better equipped to make the right decision for their vehicles and their life’s needs, that’s why we take the time to explain everything in as much detail as each client wants and help prioritize the maintenance and repairs on your vehicles.
