Verified CustomerJune 13, 2014

They gave great service, were interested in my satisfaction, were extremely friendly and pleasant. When they were going to need more time to make sure that they had the vehicle repaired correctly they contacted me in advance to let me know what they had done and what they were planning to do in advance. I have already recommended them to many people some 150 miles away from their shop, but I knew that they too would be satisfied.

Verified CustomerJune 11, 2014

Service was excellent and owners are even better.
