Who are we at Fred’s Auto Repair?

Fred - owner | Fred's Auto Repair

Fred’s Auto Repair of Briarcliff is an auto repair shop right in your neighborhood. Fred’s Auto Repair has been at this same location since 1974 when Fred started the business. Fred grew up right down the street from the shop on Ridgeview Drive, with his 3 brothers and 2 sisters. Fred played at Ryder Park when he was a kid and has seen all the amazing changes in the area over the years. Fred is an alumnus of Ossining High School. At the age of 16 a neighbor called and asked Fred if he would like to work for him, Fred jumped at the chance. This was at Scott Motors, a BMW dealership in Mount Kisco. In January of 1974 Fred opened up his own place and for the last several decades has enjoyed not only growth but his wonderful customers.

Fred is a “hands-on” owner and is most comfortable discussing automotive issues with his customers, troubleshooting a vehicle service need, and working under the hood. For over thirty years he has built a loyal following based on trust that spans generations of drivers. Fred consistently covers all aspects of his thriving business as at one moment he may be performing a New York State vehicle inspection, the next helping out in the office preparing estimates or talking to customers, mentoring a member of his staff or neighboring business associate, and even road testing a customer’s vehicle. Fred always operates his business with the customer’s needs first and foremost.
