Treating Our Customers Right

Pellman’s Automotive was founded on the principle of treating people the way we would like to be treated. Our team is committed to providing the details of customer service that make the difference between an average experience and a great one. We meet our customer’s automotive needs with honesty, integrity, high quality work and personal care. We also provide free roadside assistance and stand behind all of our work with a 3 year 36,000 mile nationwide warranty.

No Question Unanswered

Our goal at Pellman’s is to provide the information every customer needs to make the best decision about his or her repairs. We believe our job is to inform you accurately and honestly about what is going on with your car. Because we want you to be confident that the decision you’re making is a good one, we’ll explain thoroughly what the repair does and why we’re recommending it. We’ll also tell you how much it will cost and provide a clear distinction between “needed” and “recommended” services. This allows you to prioritize any repairs in steps, according to your budget and gives you the knowledge you need to protect your investment.

We Build Lasting Relationships

We build lifelong relationships with our customers through excellent customer service, the highest quality of work, and caring for our customers’ concerns. One of our favorite quotes is “Enter as Strangers, Leave as Friends” This is truly how we hope new customers feel when they visit our shop for the first time.

We want to be your one shop for all of your automotive maintenance and repair needs.

As Pellman’s continues to grow and stay current with the most up-to-date automotive repair technologies, our original mission remains unchanged: to provide our customers with exceptional, professional customer service; to service their vehicles with honest, timely, and high-quality workmanship; and honor the community we have grown up in with responsible environmental stewardship.


Meet the Pellmans

Brad and Lisa PellmanLisa, a third generation Coloradoan, was born and raised in Boulder and met Brad, who grew up in Longmont, while in high school. Brad always had an affinity for cars and worked a variety of jobs in the automotive industry starting at the age of 15. After a few years in college, Brad realized that his true passion was helping people with their cars. So in 1995, they launched Pellman’s Automotive and committed themselves to building a high quality automotive repair business that addressed the needs of their customers. Pellman’s started out small – with just two employees (Brad and Lisa!) and one bay. Over the years their shop has grown to the 18 employee shop it is today.

As their shop became successful, they started devoting time to improving the automotive repair industry and have both served on regional and national industry boards and councils. Brad has been on the ASA Colorado Board of Directors since 2010 and is now the Chairman. Brad has served on the ASE Board of Governors since 2013 and was named to the ASE Executive Board in 2018. They both have enhanced their business by attending training throughout the years as avid lifelong learners.

They have spent their lives as Boulder residents and business owners and have raised their family here. They are committed to their community and truly care about their customers, employees and the environment.  


Meet General Manager – Dan Levin

 Dan LevinAs the front man for Pellman’s for over 21 years, Dan Levin has become almost as well known to Pellman’s customers as Brad & Lisa Pellman themselves!

Dan is no stranger to being a frontman.  

For several years, he performed locally with two Colorado-based bands, Airtight Experiment and Fina Dupa.

Working with people and helping fix things has always been a driving interest in Dan’s life. Dan traveled Europe after high school while searching for what it was he wanted to do. With a couple of short stints in college to study psychology and biology, he came to the conclusion that fixing people is hard but helping them solve transportation needs is fun and rewarding.

Dan was between jobs in 1997 and needed work done on his car. Brad Pellman, who was just starting his business, was his mechanic. Dan asked Brad if he could work off some of what he owed for the repairs. Brad agreed, and soon, Dan found he loved learning about and working on cars. As business began to grow, Brad offered him the role of Service Advisor.

It has been 21 years and Dan states “Being able to find a career with a company that cares about the community as much as Pellman’s does, is a blessing.” Dan isn’t playing in bands these days as raising his daughter with wife Torii is his first priority. But being a part of Pellman’s gives him that interaction with the community that he loves. Many customers are as much friends these days as they are clients.
