At Bradley’s Auto Service in Red Bank, NJ, we stay ahead of other mechanics by educating ourselves on the latest auto technology and providing an all-in-one experience for our customers. This is evidenced by our status as an ASE Master Technician. Read on to learn more about Bradley’s special offerings and certifications.
Staying Up to Date on the Latest Auto Repair Technology
Car technology is always changing, which is why Bradley’s Auto Service is committed to staying on the cutting edge. In addition to servicing all makes and models at our Red Bank, NJ shop, we are continually educating ourselves on the latest advances in electric drive vehicle repair, including:
- Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) – Powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE) in addition to an electric motor using energy from the car’s battery.
- Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs) – Have a larger battery than HEVs that allow them to travel on electricity alone. These batteries can be recharged at electric power sources. They also use gasoline to power an ICE.
- All-Electric Vehicles (EVs) – Run on electricity alone, powered by electric motors that use energy from the car’s battery. EVs are recharged at electric power sources before driving. These vehicles do not have an ICE.
These vehicles all come with their own advantages, as well as unique challenges when it comes to repairs. The electric motors, specialized batteries, regenerative brakes, and charging components found in electric and hybrid vehicles are costly parts, and should only be trusted with a mechanic who is experienced in working on them. We have the expertise and equipment needed to keep your electric drive vehicles running efficiently.
Teaching a New Generation of Mechanics At Brookdale
We are also proud to be teaching the current generation of auto technicians in Brookdale Community College’s Automotive Technology program. This program is an accredited college course that offers hands-on practical training with state of the art equipment in Brookdale’s auto repair lab area and classrooms.
We are a Licensed NJ Emissions Repair Facility
In New Jersey, cars newer than 1996 are required to have vehicle emissions inspection every two years. This can either be done at the Motor Vehicle Commission, or an auto repair shop that has a Private Inspection Facility (PIF) license to perform certified state inspections. These tests are designed to detect any pollutants being released by the car. If your car fails the emissions test, you will need to have the repair certified by a licensed New Jersey emissions repair facility.
Not only does Bradley’s Auto Service offer New Jersey certified state car inspections, but we are also fully licensed to repair emissions failure. We don’t just scan for codes, we are legally certified to handle both the inspection and repairs on site with our team of experienced mechanics.
We Have Been an ASE Master Technician for Over 25 Years
Bradley’s Auto Service is proud to have the distinction of being an ASE Master Technician. This status is given to auto repair technicians that meet the strict criteria of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). This prestigious organization tests and certifies automotive technicians to ensure that they have a high degree of expertise and technical knowledge. To achieve Master Status, technicians must pass a series of certification tests and recertify every five years to ensure that they are staying up to date with best practices. The ASE Certification gives customers the piece of mind of knowing that they are trusting their car with an expert mechanic.
