About BAC Auto Centre

29 Weber St N
Waterloo, ON N2J 3G5


Your Trusted Local Auto Repair Centre!

In the heart of Waterloo, BAC Auto Centre was built on trust and reliability for all things automotive.

The story of BAC Auto Centre began in the early 1970’s when two brothers, Battista and Tony Congi migrated to Canada from Italy in search of better opportunities. They started learning how to fix cars, with a focus on body work and in 1977 they opened BAC Autobody.

Thanks to the efforts of many Congi family members and the BAC team, BAC Autobody was the go to collision centre in the Waterloo region for over 30 years, building a reputation for quality work completed at a fair price. 

In 2008, Battista along with his two sons John and Franco had an opportunity to take over the local Meineke Car Care Centre and so they began the journey of converting BAC Autobody into a community-based auto care centre. For the past 15+ years, they continued to grow the business based on strong relationships with customers and a tight family bond. 

In late 2023 the Congi family decided to bring back a part of their history and rebrand once again to BAC Auto Centre. The team remains the same, the location is where it has been for the past four decades and even the phone number remains unchanged. Built on integrity and honesty, the Congi’s continue to provide legendary service to their Waterloo community that in turn has embraced them as family.

Today you can count on BAC Auto Centre for professional routine auto maintenance, exhaust repair, brake repair, new tires, oil changes, steering repair, suspension systems repair, wheel alignment, and much more.

We look forward to having you stop by, even if it’s just to say hello!

What our Clients Say

We have been searching for an honest and good mechanic shop for a few years after moving into Waterloo region, a friend recommended BAC Auto Centre and John. We brought my wife’s SUV in for a rattling exhaust and a rough idle. We spoke with John and Bruno, they were friendly, honest and upfront with us. They fixed her SUV in the timeline promised. These guys are honest, hard working and keep their word. They do what it takes to earn your business, get you back on the road and keep you satisfied.

I had my aftermarket exhaust system installed by them on April. The service was good and reasonably priced. Four months later, the exhaust had developed a tapping noise while accelerating. I brought my truck in, they fixed the problem and changed both sides of side marker bulbs for me at no charge. I am impressed with the high level of attention and customer service. It made me feel I’m taken care of. Thanks John!

Jeff Zabel

Took my SUV in for a flex pipe replacement. I was pleased to learn only one pipe needed to be replaced, very honest of them. Work was done quickly, well in advance of when I expected to get the vehicle back. Excellent service from the team there, would definitely recommend.
