Discover and learn about the history behind Expert Garage.

CELEBRATING OVER 60 YEARS

DECADES OF EXPERIENCE

Expert Garage Ltd. was established back in 1950, when Mr. Jean Mercier first opened Hearst Garage, which was then incorporated in 1973 and renamed as Expert Garage. What started as a small owned and operated business located in Hearst, Ontario, has grown to employ more than 40 employees over the years.

In July of 2000, to accommodate customers, we decided to expand and open a branch in Timmins, Ontario. You can now find us at two different Northern Ontario locations, where satisfying our customers has become a priority from the start. And we truly believe it has paid off.

Your work is our business, and we are devoted to keeping you on the road and on the job. That’s our road to success!

To accommodate customers, we offer complimentary coffee, free wifi, a television lounge, and most important of all, our entire staff is bilingual. Altogether, we are Expert Garage. The expert choice where our quality is your satisfaction.
