It's a family owned business. We were very confident in the services provided, and the ability to do quality work. Their diagnostic and repairs were correct. There has not been a problem since then.

I was very happy with the service I got. You know I would probably tell somebody that he's good. The only issue I have is he is a little further away then some of the local shops. Just a little distance for people to drive. Other than that, it would be a ten. He seems very fair and honest.

by - Verified Customer January 30, 2015

I appreciate the work he does and in a timely manner.
