Turlock Auto Service has opened their doors to the public, offering automotive repairs of any and all kinds.


Sardin “Sammy” Ebarhimi, owner of Turlock Auto Service, has dreamed of having an auto shop since he can remember.


“I grew up working on cars with my dad,” Ebarhimi said. “Now that I am able to work alongside him in our own shop — it’s a dream come true.”


Ebarhimi’s shop has been open nearly two months and he has considered the recent debut successful.


“There’s a lot of competition for auto shops where we are located,” Ebarhimi said. “But if you’re loyal and honest to your customers, they will come to you.”


Turlock Auto Service is family-owned as Sammy works alongside his father, Sargis and his brother, Sinoeil.


Sargis has specialized in auto repairs for 17 years and Sammy grew up following in his father’s footsteps, learning and growing from the same trade.


“I’m lucky I get to do my favorite hobby for a living,” Ebarhimi said. “It’s nice to see a car that is dead brought back to life.”


The Ebarhimi brothers are attending classes at Modesto Junior College to receive their AA degree in Business.
