A lot of people say they could never work with their spouse and I have to say that I could never work without my spouse. She has been with me from the beginning before I ever set up shop. Ann is the Office Manager / Service Writer at Overbeck Auto Services and with 40 plus years of business management experience, she has helped take my dream from concept to reality over the past 35 years. She is the shop mom handling everything from payroll, to benefits, to parts ordering and customer service. At some point you will likely speak with Ann throughout your Overbeck Auto Service experience. She has tremendous automotive knowledge and experience and more importantly she knows everything about what is going on in and around the shop. Ann has earned her ASE Automotive Service Consultant certification.

He is an ASE Certified Master Automotive Tech, and ASE Certified Collision Repair and Refinish Tech, an ASE Certified Damage, Analysis and Estimating Tech, and most recently an ACDC Qualified Hybrid Auto Tech. Matt keeps Overbeck Auto Services engine well oiled and tuned.

BJ is our beloved pure bred black Labrador Retriever. Her title of Greeter really doesn’t do her justice. She is usually the first point of contact a customer, delivery person, or supplier sees when they open the door; that is unless she is in her crate chewing on a rawhide snack. She’s a super friendly dog who loves to be around people. She has been our greeter for the last 7 years and throughout that time she has been trained as a therapeutic partner and often visits hospitals, nursing homes and hospices bringing cheer to anyone who needs it.
