George is a born mechanic.
George started his business in 1988 as George's Marine Service. He worked primarily on large yachts and commercial sport fishing boats until he broke away from that side of the diesel business and decided to work primarily on heavy trucks and equipment.
Here's a story from one of our happy customers...
I had an emergency, needing a place to park a truck and trailer until the new buyer picked it up from Canada. An acquaintance of mine suggested George, the owner of San Diego Heavy Truck and Equipment Repair in Lakeside. They immediately accommodated me and made space for my full sized custom racing semi trailer and long wheelbase tractor. During the 2-3 weeks that my rig was there, I discovered how much more they could do for someone that owns heavy equipment...from IFTA/DOT inspections on heavy trucks to maintenance, repair and fabrication on trucks, trailers and every imaginable piece of heavy equipment you can imagine, this is the "go to" place! Their prices are reasonable and fair. Their knowledge is extensive and their work is done right. They are also friendly to deal with. I always feel that they genuinely care about my needs.

George is the most honest and hard working mechanic that I know. He did not quit until the problem was completely resolved, and this issue with my truck was complicated. And Dawn provides the best customer service of any business that I've ever encountered. Thank you both for keeping me on the road.
We use George's service for all of our trucks. Great service, fair pricing and a local company. Kim and George have never let us down. These guys seem to be 1/2 the cost of the dealer?!
George and his crew are professional and always do top notch work. He’s even saved me on more than one occasion when I was in a pinch. We’re very happy and loyal customers!
I count on their knowledge and skills to fix any problems we ask them to, with absolutely none of the nonsense or game playing that is so common among mechanics today. George never ceases to amaze me with his diagnostic skills, and I fully appreciate his frankness and honesty. They are always there when I need them, and I can trust them to treat us right. I would recommend their services to anyone!

George and team have single handedly elevated my business to another level. Their technical mechanic skills and regulatory knowledge of vehicles and heavy equipment make SDHTER the only folks in town I trust to maintain and repair my fleet of vehicles and equipment. Love you George & team! Couldn't do it with you!
