Gator Ford Service Center
Small, Medium, and Heavy Duty Truck Service and Repair

The Gator Ford Difference

Our technicians are manufacturer-certified specialists trained to work specifically on your make of truck, whether it's light, medium or heavy duty. This means our Gator technicians know your truck inside and out. They have the specialty tools to handle repairs and regular service to keep your truck at its peak performance.

One of the major benefits of this training is the knowledge of when certain maintenance needs to be scheduled. We have model-specific multi-point inspections to evaluate everything from engine health, fluid levels, and the wear of your brakes and tires.

This proactive system allows your technician to identify potential problems and prescribe the appropriate service. This goes far beyond your typical oil-change. Our technicians know which parts wear out of the fastest on your vehicle and can keep an eye on any potential problem areas, saving you money in the long run.

Oil Change

Changing your vehicle's oil is one of the most vital things you can do to ensure your car runs smooth longer, saving you a lot of money in the long run. While most drivers know it's important, they don't know why. When your car, truck, SUV, or van is operating, the oil undergoes thermal breakdown due to high temperatures.

Brake Service

What You Should Know About Brake Repair One of the most common routine maintenance tasks are brake repairs and upkeep. There are two types of brakes: disc brakes and drum brakes. All modern cars and light trucks have front disc brakes and most have rear discs as well (though some lower-priced cars still come with rear drum brakes). The most common types of brake related repairs are brake pad replacement, a brake fluid flush, and rotor replacement/repair.

Tire Service & Sales

Our goal is to be the leaders in affordable, quality tires. We serve customers with the latest Dunlop, Cooper, Toyo, Michelin, BF Goodrich, Continental and Pirelli tires.
