About European Auto Repair in Alameda

European Auto Repair

Our History


European Auto Repair has been family-owned and operated for 2 generations now. Erich Boehler opened the shop doors on January 1, 1967. Over the years, the business has grown due to the relationship we've built with customers combined with our quick, reliable, and trustworthy car repair services. 

Albert Boehler has since taken over ownership of his father's auto repair shop and is currently working with his son Max, who will be the third-generation owner of European Auto Repair. Albert went to Germany after high school and worked for the Porsche factory race team for 3 years, followed by an apprenticeship program for another 3 years. He came back to California and worked for East Bay BMW for 2 years, where he earned awards for top customer satisfaction on the repairs performed there. After leaving BMW, Albert took over European Auto Repair for his father.
