It is with heavy hearts that we share with all of you that we have learned of the passing of our friend, and the founder of Carlos Auto Service, Carlos E. Zamora, 88, on Saturday, July 18, 2020.
After being in business for nearly 60 years, Carlos passed the reigns of his beloved shop in 2017. When we purchased the business from him, Bill had been working beside and learning from Carlos for 35 years, and Toni for nearly 30 years. For those of you who knew him, you will remember what an incredibly talented and gifted mechanic he was, and how he never shied away from a challenge. For us, he was not only a mentor and friend, but someone always willing to laugh or cry with us. He was so much more than our boss. We continue his legacy of serving the community and his standard of always helping those in need. All of us here at Carlos Auto Service offer our sincere condolences to his family.
Starting Monday, June 1, 2020, our operating hours will be 8am to 5pm Monday thru Friday. As we get closer to resuming normalcy in Montgomery County, we’d like to thank our wonderful employees and exceptional customers for all they’ve done to accommodate COVID-19 precautions. We continue to adhere to strict cleanliness practices as well as social distancing, and thank you for your continued support and patience during this challenging time.
Please call (301)-897-0880 for appointment information.
As a thank you to all first responders and medical professionals caring for our community during this time, we are offering a 10% discount off any of our services with a valid ID. We appreciate all you do!
We continue to remain open 8am to 4pm Monday thru Friday.
Call Bill (301)-897-0880 for appointment information.
We remain open, however due to the new Stay-at-Home Order effective in the state of Maryland, we will be adjusting our hours in order to serve you while also reducing risk. Our operating hours will be 8am to 4pm effective Tuesday, March 31st until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Additionally, we are now offering pick-up and drop-off at home services for vehicles only. Please call and talk to Bill for more information (301)-897-0880.
We remain committed to serving our customers during this difficult time. Stay well!
According to the DOHS and Maryland’s Governor Hogan, the automotive repair industry has been deemed essential and therefore, we remain open. As of now, we will operate our normal business hours of 8am to 6pm. However, that may be subject to change, so please check back for future updates. Stay healthy!
A message to our friends & loyal customers: We are open for business!
As of March 18, 2020, there have been no State restrictions made on our industry, so in following the guidelines of the CDC and using common sense, we are taking every precaution available to us in our effort to control the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. We are practicing additional handwashing and our mechanics are using disposable gloves. We have plastic seat covers to protect both our customers & employees. We’re using antibacterial wipes on every door handle in our shop, as well as the door handles & steering wheels of every vehicle brought in for service. Additionally, we are practicing social distancing as much as possible and so have also removed our community candy dish for the foreseeable future.
We hope that you will also consider our employees when you bring your car in for service: please schedule for a later date if you are currently experience any flu-like symptoms; remove any non-essential items from your vehicle. At this time, please do not expect to wait in our shop for your vehicle’s service to be completed.
This is a very trying time for the whole country, but the best way through is to rely on our neighbors and friends for whatever support we need. If there is anything with which you need assistance, please feel free to give us a call.
