About Us

Independent Specialist of Reno, a local family owned business, was formed in April of 2002 to serve the Reno-Tahoe area with a personal and detailed automotive experience.

Owners and brothers-in-law, Chris and Steve, provide that personal touch often missing from the major corporation repair facilities. Here you aren’t just a number, you are face to face with the team that maintains and repairs your vehicles.

You will also meet Bryan Washburn, our service advisor.

Bryan’s extensive knowledge of Automobiles is awesome! He understands how todays automobile systems work so it helps when you need questions answered. At times if needed you might even find Bryan out in the shop performing repairs himself!


…And when you call us, you’ll actually get someone on the phone.
