Only had two days to get something repaired. He was accommodating and got the job done immediately. He quoted a price and that was the price he charged. I asked around and he had the cheapest prices. I was very satisfied.

I would say that I have been satisfied with the service they give good prices since it is a small shop, we might have to wait a day or two. I think he is fair and reliable.

Rick gives a good estimate and if he finds something that doesn't need to be done, he doesn't just do the work to get the money. Very fair with the quotes. I have had one or two times when I needed work, a part he had within the year was defective and he replaced it at no charge.
