About Us

Formerly Okanagan Brake Centre 1990 Ltd


Our business is an independent, family owned and operated, 4-bay automotive repair garage. We (Peter & Marilyn VanderDeen) purchased Okanagan Brake Center Ltd in 1995. We have since renamed our company OBC Automotive Ltd to highlight the fact that we offer ALL automotive repair and maintenance services.

We are literally a one-stop repair and maintenance shop for all makes and models of cars and light trucks.  We keep up with the constantly-evolving vehicle technology with the latest tools and equipment. 

In addition we:   

✔ Offer towing by a technician;
✔ Are a Signature Tire Center Dealer;
✔ Are a licensed CVSE (Commercial Vehicle Safety & Enforcement) Provincial Inspection Facility;
✔ Are a licensed Motor Vehicle Sales Dealership

We currently employ an incredibly friendly service manager, two skilled licensed automotive technicians and we are a proud employer of a talented third year automotive ITA trade apprentice.

 At OBC Automotive we value supporting our local community and our industry:   We have provided free repairs and maintenance for the North Okanagan Valley Gleaners Society moving truck.  We are pleased to regularly donate to the Upper Room Mission, Vernon Christian School as well as local RCMP fund-raisers such as the Jean Minguy Foundation and Cops for Kids.  We are also pleased to sponsor customer-requested local youth sports and social programs.

Furthermore, Peter VanderDeen (a licensed technician for 25 years) presently holds a position on the Automotive Service Advisory Committee for the Trades & Apprenticeship program at Okanagan College in Kelowna.
