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.
04/26/14
He is a good honest gentleman.
04/23/14
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.
04/21/14
He has been a very trustworthy shop.
04/18/14
He does work on time. The car is ready when he says it will be done and it is done correctly.
04/15/14
I have been with Rick for twenty years. He is an honest good mechanic.
04/14/14
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.
04/11/14
He does good work and treated me fair. We have been going there quite awhile, a good mechanic.
04/07/14
I trust them. I have been going there for 25 years and he only fixes what need done.
04/06/14
He does good work. Most of all because he is honest. He is the most honest mechanic I have seen. He never overcharges you. He is a great guy. His place is great. Rick does not do anything that does not need to be done. He is the best.
03/31/14
He is efficient and does it on time. Does not procrastinate.
03/24/14
He is a single guy to work on it. I trust him, I like that I can talk to him and I take our cars there a lot. I trust him. I feel he is doing a good job and gets the job done.
03/17/14
In the past he has served us well, and because of the way he is dependable, fair and honest.
03/16/14
He is trustworthy, good worker and works on all my family's vehicle.
03/10/14
I was very satisfied with what he did. I had no problem with what he did.
