Garden Spot Frame & Alignment — A History of Unbeatable Service
Since 1978, Garden Spot Frame & Alignment (GSFA) has worked hard to build our reputation for excellence on the strength of three attributes: expert workmanship, advanced equipment, and strategic location.
As a small frame and alignment shop in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, we did an exceptional job of serving individual truckers and fleet operators. Word got around that nobody could straighten a bent frame or improve truck handling better than GSFA—and that we always stood behind our work. To this day, our highly-experienced technicians can quickly and accurately straighten any type of frame rail or bent axle. We’ve become experts on truck frames, trailer frames, suspensions of all types, heavy equipment, and agricultural and industrial equipment.
For us, good is never good enough. We strive to be the best. This commitment to dependability and driver comfort is evident in everything we do, starting with our signature frame and alignment service. We have an intricate understanding of how alignment affects your vehicle’s handling and performance. We drive your truck ourselves, both before and after an alignment, so we can know with 100% certainty that we’ve eliminated any problems. This expertise in ride, handling and vibration are hallmarks of every GSFA alignment package. In fact, our precision work can actually change the personality of any vehicle, resulting in the smoothest ride you’ve ever experienced.
Built to Serve
GFSA became a full-service truck garage when Barry Simpson took over the business in 1997. His vision and experience optimizing truck performance helped GSFA deliver the highest levels of safety, comfort, fuel efficiency and vehicle profitability. To meet growing market demand, we opened a second shop in Leola, Lancaster County in 1999, a truck repair shop in East Earl, and a 24-hour Towing & Recovery Service & Storage yard in Lancaster. We further expanded with a drive shaft operation in 2001, and put our first fully-equipped service truck on the road in 2006.
We now build, balance and repair more than 40 driveshafts each month, usually turning each job around the same day, while balancing a shaft to within a few grams at each end—compared to other shops that often measure imbalance tolerances in ounces.
Our fleet of tow trucks—now numbering five heavy duty towing and recovery rigs—responds quickly to emergency calls 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And of course, our towing and recovery service is always backed by the resources of our full-service shops.
