Customer Reviews

by Verified Customer May 06, 2016

They are honest and were upfront about the costs when they gave an outlook on the repairs needed. They also explained the repairs that might be necessary later. They explained everything that they did and stand by their work. I am extremely pleased! They go above and beyond what was expected!

by Verified Customer May 06, 2016

Great service as always.

by April 19, 2016

They took a thorough look at my car. Only complaint was I waited a little over an hour for an oil change and tire rotation.

by April 19, 2016

They did work on 1971 car. It turned out to be quite expensive. They were twice my normal mechanic (who was quite ill and couldn't do the work). They broke the horn ring on my car and didn't even tell be about it. It was quite obvious it was broken.

by Verified Customer April 05, 2016

I thought they were pretty expensive.

The owner, office staff, mechanics, and service are the best!! Need I say more?

by Verified Customer September 25, 2015

It seemed to me that they were anxious to serve the customer well. Waiting time, car to drive while yours is being repaired and expediency in getting car repaired a quickly as possible were all attributes.

by Verified Customer September 23, 2015

Good, reliable service.

They are very good there. They do a thorough check on your vehicle, and if they find more work that needs to be done they will bring it to your attention. They leave the repairs to your own discretion.

I just like them personality wise I guess. They fixed my car and gave me a ride back and forth from my home.

by Verified Customer December 17, 2014

I really didn't know them. They gave me a lot of helpful information. they also helped me with scrapping the vehicle because it would have cost to much to fix rather than buying another car. They mailed me a check for what I had left over from the scrapping.

by December 16, 2014

They gave me the service I wanted at a decent price.

by Verified Customer December 09, 2014

I am satisfied with what they have done. I like their service.

They explain everything really well. They are friendly. If I have questions, they answer them. I speak very highly of them.

I would trust him to repair anything.

by Verified Customer May 30, 2013

It's an excellent place with an excellent reputation.

by Verified Customer May 22, 2013

I would highly recommend them. They have solved problems that other mechanics could not and they are just a joy to work with. I would highly recommend them. If you need a good mechanic who you could trust and knows what they're doing to your car, go there.

by Verified Customer May 17, 2013

They're dependable, reliable, have fabulous customer service, and they get the work done in a timely fashion. Very accommodating. Overall a good experience.

At Dale's, you get top quality repairs with a small shop feel. Dale and his mechanics come out to talk to you personally. The staff is very knowledgeable. They offer to give you a ride if you need one. It is a service that my generation (I'm 60) really appreciates. He is also very upfront about the repair.

by Verified Customer April 30, 2013

Everyone that works there is great to work with and they explain in detail what repairs are needed and they do an overall excellent job.

by Verified Customer April 30, 2013

I have been taking vehicles there for seven years. I've had at least for or five different vehicles that they had knowledge about. A lot of times I needed another vehicle and it would take over night and they gave me a loaner vehicle. I recommended friends and co workers to them. I choose to go over there and pay service tax because they provide excellent service.

by Verified Customer April 17, 2013

Friendly service. Reliable and trustworthy.

by Verified Customer April 09, 2013

I just feel like they are an outstanding shop. They stand behind their work and are very good at what they do.
