Spiteri’s Auto Service Success Story
Spiteri’s Auto Service began in the garage of the 36th Avenue Mobil gas station in San Mateo in the early 1980s.
We stayed at this location until 1986, when we lost our lease. Spiteri’s Auto Service went into business on Old County Road in Belmont, with Chuck and Sam Spiteri as partners.
Today we have approximately 14 employees; including Chuck’s wife Kathy, who is the Office Manager. We have 4 Service Writers to help customer’s at drop-off and pick-up, with estimates and explanations; 8 technicians, 2 drivers to shuttle customers to and from the shop and an assistant in the office.
Most importantly, Spiteri’s cares about our customers; many of whom have followed us from our original location. We provide estimates to our customers after complete and detailed inspections of their cars. We are honest with our recommendations and can prioritize the needs if necessary when costs exceed budget.
Spiteri’s Auto Service recognizes that auto repairs can be costly. But, we believe you are paying for the best service available at our facility. Spiteri’s technicians are ASE certified and the facility has earned the prestigious “Blue Seal of Excellence” as a result. Technicians are also trained in electrical repair equipment, hybrid service and computer diagnostics. Our facility is AAA rated and going on our third year of being recognized as a Diamond Certified facility. We have won numerous awards by readers’ of our local Peninsula newspapers; including over 15 years of San Mateo Times “Best Of”.
Our facility has also won “Best Tire Dealer”; not only do we sell Michelin, BF Goodrich, Uniroyal and many more brands, we also repair and maintain your tires which include balancing, rotation and flat repair.
We are proud to have one of the cleanest auto repair shops in the county; striving to keep the building clean, painted and maintained. There is a separate waiting area for our customers; who can wait comfortably for their vehicles while reading, watching TV, using our wireless internet and having a cup of coffee. There is even a small kiddie table with activities to keep the little ones busy when you bring them along.
Chuck and Sam are involved in their community, and in their automotive service field as members of the Automotive Service Council. Spiteri’s Auto Service has been both AAA approved and A+ rated with the Better Business Bureau for over 20 years.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Us
Chuck at Spiteri’s recommended Michelin LTX/MS2 tires for my Escape and I love them! I drive 1,000-mile-routes weekly, rain or shine, and I have never felt safer.
– Luke G.
LOVE this place! I had four new tires mounted and balanced. Everyone I came in contact with, from Chuck, to Sam, to Tom was extremely helpful… and friendly as can be.
– Jodie S.
I’ve taken my cars (past and present) here a few times and I am always impressed by how thorough they are. They spell out all the problems, large and small… it’s almost like taking your medical problems to a specialist versus a GP. Yes they catch everything — but in the interest of full disclosure and educating you. I have never felt nickel and dimed. Everything they tell you is spot on.
– Tammie S
Being a girl who doesn’t know a thing about cars was VERY impressed with the quality of Spiteri. My car failed a smog test twice, i took it in to them and i felt like they put me at ease with telling me step by step on what they will do.
– Paula S.
Super friendly staff. They thoroughly explain what they’re doing. Haven’t had trouble scheduling service. I believe they are doing quality work. They allow after hours pickup.
– Brandon W.
Came here on Xmas eve since it was my day off and Tom set me up with the first timer smog check deal. Ask about it! Great service, everyone was extremely friendly, clean and welcoming waiting room. I’ll definitely be coming back here again and recommending to friends/family. You guys rock!
