Traverse Connect Ambassadors stopped in at Dave's Garage to thank and congratulate them for 15 years of investment with Traverse Connect.

Dave’s Garage was founded in 1995 as an alternative to the dealership service experience. They built their reputation on trust and offered a detailed and personal experience. In September of 2014 Craig Olvey and Jamie Laferriere became the new owners. They have a combined 45 years of dealership experience and a passion for customer service.

They continue to grow the business. In June of 2019 Taghon’s Garage in Empire Michigan became part of the Dave’s Garage family. Taghon’s was a Leelanau County landmark that had been operated by the same family for over 90 years! Free shuttle service is available.

Dave’s Garage is growing even more! They are remodeling two buildings right around the corner from their Hastings Street location and will allow them to add four more service bays and expand their parking. Stay tuned for progress updates.

Wanted to say thank you for helping me out this am. Saved our camping and fishing weekend. They were extremely busy, but snuck me in to save the weekend. You guys are THE best. Shoutout to Doug and Heather and the rest of the team!
Friendly, courteous, helpful, knowledgeable, honest, attentive, do good work and stand behind it, outstanding business.
Jamie, you are awesome! Customer service far exceeds the simple word “excellent! “ Thank you for helping my son out, on a holiday weekend at that too. You’re the best
Dave's Garage has been busy disinfecting cars and emergency vehicles. Today, Jamie helped an ICU nurse at Munson with her car by dropping in at her second job at 6th Street Drugs. They are offering FREE services to all emergnecy personnel in Traverse City.
Kudos to our #scaleupnorthawards Showcase finalist Dave's Garage for serving our healthcare workers during the crisis.
Dave's Garage in Traverse City and Empire are offering to disinfectant essential health care workers cars for free. They use a disinfectant spray called Transform and it kills 99% of bacteria in autos. This includes healthcare workers, police and firefighters. The application takes a few minutes and is effective immediately. You can call either location to set up a time. Guys this is such a good thing, especially for police officers who are transporting people in their vehicles. It will help protect them, their families, and the people they are transporting. Thank you Dave's Garage for helping others! Dave's Garage
Thank you Dave's Garage for continuing to care for the community with these great health standards in place protecting your employees and the vehicle owners! TBAYS is proud to have you as a Sponsor of our programming!
Daves repaired my daughter's car and did a great job! It was a major repair and they were honest and upfront about what needed to be done. I strongly recommend Daves for your car service needs. It's great to find a business you can trust in Traverse City!
