About Bret's Autoworks, Gardner

Total Commitment To Our Customers

Bret's Autoworks, Gardner location opened in 2008 by Shawn Fischer and Leo Murry. Shawn was serving as the general manager and owner of Bret's Autoworks in Olathe when he met Leo. Leo filled a technician position in 2001, and the two became fast friends.

 

Bret Tredway started the original location in Olathe over 30 years ago. Bret began working on cars from his home while attending MidAmerica Nazarene University. He enjoyed it so much he decided to open his repair shop after he graduated. He knew the importance of providing high quality, honest repairs. In 2001 Shawn joined Bret as partners, and eventually, Bret moved on to take on other adventures.

I’m always satisfied with their service and the way they treat people, not just me.

Had a Kia that had been dying. Took it in and they spent two days, trying everything to get it to die. Nope. Computer did not show anything. Then they would not charge me, because they did not find anything. Honest and integrity. We will bring future work to Bret's

From the moment I sent my appt. email, Tracy was quick to respond and communicated clearly with me and my appt needs. They sent me a inspection video, Derek was thorough and explained everything that he found, he handed me back off to Tracy for recommended repairs, before she contacted me she had tracked down parts, had a time line and an accurate price for me. I had to wait a week for parts to come in, brought truck back in and they quickly got me back on the road. I was impressed and will continue to bring my truck here, I have never had such a hassle free and pleasant experience at the repair shop.

I called Bret’s due to a blower not working on my A/C, they got me an estimate for the work and an estimate for several other issues. Told me what I should prioritize without being pushy or preachy. Fixed my issue on the same day I brought it in (the day after I called), quickly and at a good price. I’ll use Brets first, every time going forward.

I used to take my car to the dealership for repairs, but my car started stalling and wasn't going to make it all the way to the dealership so I figured I'll give a local shop a chance. I was absolutely STUNNED to say the least. Bret's does an incredible job on communicating what's going on with your car as well as advising you the best way to proceed. They are very professional, polite and courteous. Will 100% be taking my car to Bret's for all future repairs.
