About Us

My Mechanic is a family-owned and operated automotive repair facility that provides superior automotive services to their customers. My Mechanic was founded by Joe “Billy” Ganje and built on the love, passion and pride that go into every automotive repair.

My Mechanic’s Story:

In the early 1990’s Billy started working with his father, at Yellow Cab of Seattle, as an automotive technician. This is where Billy really started to dive into his craft and learned about the the pride and passion of working on automobiles from his father.

In 1999 Billy and his family moved to Tucson, AZ. over the next couple years you could find Billy doing the occasional brake job or tune-up; for a friend at their house, while also working as a full time technician at local automotive shops in town. During this time Billy continued honing his craft, building up his tools and equipment base so that when the time was right he would be ready to open his own automotive repair shop. My Mechanic was established in 2008 thanks in part from the support of Billy and Dena’s family and friends.

2013 brought on a new adventure for My Mechanic, moving into a bigger location, and bringing on additional full time technicians. Today My Mechanic’s presence in Tucson is stronger than ever, due to our loyal customer base, support from family and friends and continually striving for the superior automotive service that My Mechanic was founded on.

So if you’re in the market for personalized automotive services, instead of the automotive assembly line you have become accustomed to, make My Mechanic YOUR Mechanic.

    My story starts with my dad Ron, who was a technician. Dad put me to work when I was about 15 and I have been working on cars ever since. In the past 25 years I have become ASE certified, and the recipient of multiple awards. In 2008 my wife and I started My Mechanic with the hope to bring the personalized service from a bygone era back to the automotive industry. So if your in the neighborhood stop by and say "hi" to me and the rest of the team.
