Stephen Zitterkopf - Owner
Steve Zitterkopf has over 40 years experience in the automotive industry. He began his career as a line tech for a Mercedes Benz dealership. Shortly after that he was sent to the Corporate Dealership where he worked his way from A/C and Electrical Specialist to a Shop Foreman and finishing up his career as a Body Restoration Center Manager. After 30 years with Mercedes Benz, he retired. 
Soon after retirement, he found a local Mercedes dealerships that needed assistance in automotive repair and worked exclusively for them. So he opened his shop in 1998. After almost 5 years of exclusive work for Mercedes he decided to open up his shop to the local Riverside body shops. Here he offered his expertise in removing and repairing engines and performing minor suspension collision repair.
He has now been open to the general public since 2001 and enjoys helping his customers in maintaning and improving the performance of their vehicles. What sets Carriage Motor House Inc from other automotive repair shops is his Integrity and honesty.
