I trust their work, we haven't had any issues in the past and they offer their services to us whenever we need them, one of the mechanics gave me their cell phone number so I could call them if I get stranded. They offer really good service, and they are a really good shop.

Verified CustomerAugust 04, 2014

They are very good at the work they do. They inspected my vehicle and advised me of possible future problems,no pressure on getting the work done there. They explained the possibilities of not doing anything. They stand behind their work.

Verified CustomerAugust 04, 2014

They are very professioanl and knowledgeable about the work I needed before I even got the quote, and they fixed it right the first time. I just like their personalities and customer service skills.

I don't really know much about cars, I always end up spending more money than I planned in advance.

They promise end times for repair work as well as the ability to give rides for vehicle pick up, without being able to follow through. Frustrating.

Too expensive.

October 15, 2012

Layman's is simply an excellant service center. Staffed by certified mechanics and equipped with up to date equipment, work is done efficiently, correctly and on time. The center has been in business for more than forty sucessful years at this location and passed from father to son in the 1990s. They provided me with very good service indeed!

Labor rates are most reasonable and the staff are helpful,courteous and cheerful and willing and eager to point out minor deficiencies and correct them for you.

I would recommend this center to any and all who seek good work, performed by qualified staff, on time and at reasonable rates. Definitely five star service ! KeithDavies
