Leo & Son Garage - Technician Jobs in Bellflower, CA

About Us

For over 71 years, we have served as the choice family owned and operated automotive shop in the areas surrounding Bellflower. Auto repair was Leo J. Henderson's passion, which led him to open Leo & Son Garage in 1949 alongside his son, Joe Henderson. Joe began working at the shop in 1958, and he is now the current owner. His father taught him the importance of providing customers with quality auto repair at a reasonable price, and Joe continues to instill those same values at Leo & Son Garage today. We are a family owned and operated business supporting the Bellflower community. We are currently working 5 days a week and closed on major holidays. Consider joining the Leo & Son Garage team!
