I called several repair shops before selecting Ackerman's. I chose them to do the work on my car because the gentleman who answered the phone was professional, courteous and informational. He didn't overstate potential problems without seeing my car like other places I called. He said they could take a look that same day and if it was what I thought it was they could have me in and out in about 4 hours. No other place would check my car for at least another 24 hours. My car was repaired that same day and saved me from stressing about it for another day! I'll definitely use them for my regular maintenance and repairs.

I just moved to the area and was looking for a shop that would work on my '82 Volvo 245 wagon. After calling around to a few shops, I got Bruce on the phone. He was happy to take my car in for a power steering leak issue, and successfully sourced a salvage part to fix the issue.
