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.

During the freeze of the Midwest our truck would not start due to dead battery. We couldn't change it due to the location of it. We called around to see if we could get it fixed and dealer's were going to charge a fee because the said that they would have to run a test to make sure it was only the battery. Also they wouldn't be able to get to it right away, my husband is a disabled veteran and I couldn't go long without a vehicle. I called Brett's and they told they also probably couldn't get to it right away but it wouldn't be as long as the other places. Tracy called &said they were go to get working on it that day, they didn't charge us the extra fee for checking it out. They also did a oil change (with our approval) for less money than others charge us. You bet I would refer other's to them. Rosemary

This is the first time I've used Bret's to get an oil change, they were very friendly and did the job in about 45 minutes. Was very happy with the service.

Arthur, Thank you! Glad you came by for your oil change.

These guys know their business and they do it well. They also take care of their customers. A recent family emergency brought with it a car “emergency.” Bret’s went to bat for us and got our car repaired immediately so we could take care of our long-distant family emergency. Thanks, you guys. Much appreciated!!

Don, We are so glad we could help you out during your family emergency. Wishing all the best to your family.
