"They're very professional, they gave me a rental car for the day when they were doing the repairs and they explained everything they did to me beforehand, so I understood what the charges were. "

A bit pricey, and they didn't call me when the car was done, but otherwise OK.

Came in, unscheduled, on a Saturday with front bumper and splashguard damage. Hillmuth fixed it in less than two hours. Thank you very much!

Excellent service!

My 2000 Ranger truck needs brake lines and rear springs. Scott informed me there was substantial rust that made additional repairs likely within the next two years. I decided to not have the repairs and, instead, sell the vehicle 'as is' to someone with a repair shop.

The service and respect shown customers at the Columbia shop is marvelous. The shuttle service is great because I am a mature woman with one car and this helps me immensely. I have always felt I could trust your shop which is very important to me. Thanks

I was pleased with the work that was done and explanations mporovided by the front office staff. However, it was difficult to make an appointment. When I called, the voice mail answered and I left a message. On the second day when no one called me back, I made an appointment on-line. I did not receive an email confirming the appointment and called again. This time a person answered and knew of my online appointment. It seems I should have received a call back or a confirmation of my online attempt. Since it took time to get a response, I considered contacting another mechanic.
