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.
You've been introduced! Now it's get to know the rest of the team.
You know the one who calls the shots!
