Get to Know Schwabe's Automotive Center In Southeast Edmonton

Schwabe's Automotive Center is a family-owned and operated auto repair shop serving Southeast Edmonton from the same location since 1985. We’re proud to have earned a reputation in the community for being honest and reliable, and fixing vehicles right the first time. Harry Schwabe started the business after working as a journeyman auto technician at Esso for many years, and his son, Rick, joined him in the shop around 2000. Rick, himself, became a Red Seal Journeyman in 2003.

Carrying Forward a Family Auto Repair Tradition

Today, Rick and his team carry forward the Schwabe family tradition of providing honest, quality auto repair to drivers in Southeast Edmonton. After buying the business from his father in 2010, Rick came full-circle, ready to run the shop where he had been working since he was 14 years old. Now with nearly two decades of automotive experience, he is a general auto repair expert who is also the hometown mechanic you can trust to give you honest car care advice and friendly service.

“Since I got into the auto repair business with my dad, I have always liked helping people. To me there’s nothing more rewarding than helping people in need, and knowing our honest work is valued and appreciated.” - Rick Schwabe, Owner
