Hi! I’m Michael Palladino, owner of Islandwide Fleet Service in Bohemia, NY. Islandwide has been around since 1973, and I’ve run the auto repair shop since 2003. I grew up in the field, and performed my first medium-duty clutch job at the age of 15 on a 1992 International 2600 with no outside help. From that day, I knew I was going to eventually have my own car and truck repair shop. It’s truly all I’ve ever wanted to do!
In 2000, I started with a mobile service truck and grew at a rapid pace, allowing me to acquire Islandwide. By 2007, I had a staff of nine people with five working technicians. Today, we serve a large number of Long Island corporate fleets, both at our facility and onsite. We do auto repair and maintain all types of cars, trucks, and equipment.
I LOVE POSITIVE ENERGY FLOWING THROUGH MY SHOP, FROM OUR CUSTOMERS TO OUR TECHS, ALL SMILING AND LAUGHING AND GETTING THINGS DONE!
At the shop, I love when we’re firing on all cylinders, with high production, happy customers coming and going, and lots of movement and energy in the shop. It’s a real motivating factor for me, as a boss and as a business owner. When we’re flowing, I know we’re meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations for fast, quality auto repair work.
