Blue Mule Garage is a family-run automotive shop that established its self in Bastrop, Texas, in 2005. The Bluemel family originally came from El Paso, Texas, where the business was first created. The company consists of Eric Bluemel, owner and main mechanic; our best friend, James Maus Master mechanic; Zachery Davis-Assistant mechanic and Eric's wife, Michele Bluemel (also a mechanic). Michele is also operating as the receptionist, parts runner, bookkeeper, third set of hands, creator of the company's first website, and social media manager,.And now our youngest daughter Jordan Bluemel, learning to fill her mom's shoes to help with the day to day operations!
Starting out as a home-taught auto mechanic with his father, Eric worked on hot rods, muscle cars, off-road trucks, and VW Baja Bugs. After offering neighbors and friends standard car maintenance services such as oil changes and brake installations, Blue Mule Garage transitioned to a full-time/full-service maintenance mechanic shop over time. We are already certified in many auto mechanic specialty areas, and we are growing fast!
We have a proud history of excellent work and customer service. We have remained loyal in serving our community and continue to provide excellent prices in our area to help provide great services with great pricing!
