Our Philosophy
HEAD • HANDS • HEART

A review from one of our loyal customers says it best

“I’ve been a Beachside customer for 26 years and counting. I once asked Ken, “What’s your philosophy on fixing cars?” And he said, ‘Head. Hands. Heart.

HEAD  The knowledge to make wise decisions in the best interest of both car and customer.

HANDS  The skill to affect repairs at the highest level.

HEART which means caring not only about the car, but the person who drives the car, and the family who rides in the car.’

If I had to pick one word to represent Ken and Beachside auto it would be… Integrity.”
