About Us

Automotive Essentials, Inc. was formed in 2001 and is owned and operated by Douglas and Karla Perez. Jason Zapol has been our General Manager since 2004, and is responsible for running the shop in-house. Our team of installers are certified within their specific fields, including Jason and Ryan who are ASE Certified Technicians and have also been through the SEMA Installer Certification Program. Our sales team consists of a knowledgeable and friendly staff that is committed to lasting relationships with our customers. Our entire staff shows us every day that they take pride in their work and treat your vehicle as if it was their own, and together we offer our customers the excellent quality of service that Automotive Essentials is known for.

Throughout our ten years in business we have been awarded special honors by our industry and colleagues. For instance, Doug has been elected by his peers to serve on the PRO Select Committee as Board Member for the past two terms, we have received several awards from Roadwire including the Roadwire Restyler Award and the Presidents Club Award, and even some honors from the dealerships we service including Best Interior. In the past ten years we have serviced over 20,000 individual vehicles and are very proud to continue to assist our community. We are excited to see what the future holds for us as we push forward in our industry and continue to set the bar for our competitors in the region!
