Master Mechanic

“Newmarket…it’s got everything you want,” says Gary Bodnar who, together with his wife Sue opened their Master Mechanic franchise in Newmarket three years ago. It’s a community the couple holds dear to their hearts. “I’ve worked in the Newmarket area for 23 years…so [it’s] next to home,” says Gary. And for Sue, “It’s meeting all of the different people …we’ve become friends with some of our customers…a lot of really nice and interesting people.”

Together, the Bodnars and their close-knit team provide a professional and personalized service experience that keeps customers coming back – either with their vehicles or just to say hello!

With 28 years of experience in the auto service and repair industry under his belt, Gary wanted to manage his own business. The couple takes pride in being business owners and finds helping clients rewarding. Customer service is their number one priority, and includes providing courtesy shuttle service and taking customers into the shop to see the work being done on their vehicles.

Master Mechanic’s new location at 225 Pony Drive is a clean, bright and spacious facility. The large, comfortable reception area is convenient for families, and the large maintenance centre at their new address allows the Master Mechanic team to accommodate more vehicles and provide even faster service than before. “There’s room for growth here,” says Gary.

Gary and Sue want to grow with the Newmarket community and look forward to greater transit and infrastructure development. Champions of the vivaNext project, the couple often show customers renderings of Davis Drive in the future. Says Sue, “It’s going to be beautiful.”
