Spring is rapidly approaching. If your vehicle’s air conditioning hasn’t been performing, before the weather warms up is the best time to get it serviced.

For 92 years, Galveston Battery & Electric has been a staple in the automotive industry around Galveston County.

With over 12 bays, 5 lifts, Alignment Services and State Inspection Station, they are one of the largest private automotive facilities on the island. There isn’t much GBE can’t take care of.

The crew is ASE certified not just in one section of your vehicle, but they are certified to cover all parts of your vehicle.

GBE can help with all your vehicle needs, including air conditioning, electrical, brakes, suspension, cooling system, general maintenance, engine repairs, diesel service, tires and more.

The shop has most parts on hand from manufacturers like ACDelco, Motorcraft, Bosch, Goodyear and Raybestos, making it easier to complete repairs in a timely fashion.

Accessorize your truck

GBE is one of the only places on the island that provide truck accessories. If you bought a new truck this spring, or just want to give your old truck a new look, GBE offers everything from bumpers, grill guards, bed covers, toolboxes, lifts kits and their own imported LED lightbars and LED lights from Rigid Industries.

The crew can outfit your truck, Jeep or UTV with just about everything you need for a day on the job or a weekend in the field. As always, they install everything they sell, so if you want it but aren’t handy with a wrench, it’s OK, they’ve got you covered.

They can also help with being able to afford the necessities or accessories you want with financing through GE Capital’s Car Care One program. You can enjoy 6-12 months of no interest on purchases over $299 with approved credit. Call or stop in for more details.

Emissions repair facility

GBE is the only State Certified Emission’s repair facility on the island, which means they can assist you with Aircheck Texas Program repairs that provide up to $600 toward getting your car fixed so it passes the State Inspection.

This is a program that not a lot of people are aware of. It provides a way for families, people on fixed incomes, and retirees to get government assistance to keep their cars on the road.

Fleet services

Fleet Services are another big aspect to GBE’s success. They offer dealer level parts and service at a much better price. From ladder racks to toolboxes and much more, GBE has everything a contractor or professional service tech would need for their vehicle under one roof. If you have multiple vehicles to keep in good repair, come find out how GBE can help take care of your fleet without the high dealership price tag.

Family owned since 1921

Edgar Neumann opened Galveston Battery & Electric in 1921, and it has continued on through four generations, with George Neumann Jr. and Edgar’s great-grandson Michael Neumann now overseeing the business.

Over the years, they’ve had several locations and most know them nowadays as GBE, but they have been located at the corner of 35th and Broadway since 1969.

If you have a car question or concern, stop by 3502 Broadway in Galveston. You can trust the folks at GBE, they’ll treat you like family.
