My experience at the shop was very positive and they repaired it to my expectations and on time, a job well done.

by - Verified Customer December 14, 2016

I like the atmosphere of the gas station. There's always someone to answer my auto questions. Wesley drives me home and picks me up when the car is ready. I like this service too.

I recently visited for a tire rotation and was satisfied with the service and explanation of why I needed the service. I was also offered a free oil change for my next visit which was great!

by - Verified Customer January 01, 2017

Professional and trustworthy service. Highly recommended.

by - Verified Customer January 01, 2017

I made an appointment a month in advance and the shop did not order my tires on time. I had to wait 5 hours for something that should have taken 2 and was given the runaround.

by - Verified Customer November 25, 2016

The owners and staff of this shop are incredibly knowledgeable and take pride in their work. They strive for excellence and provide the kind of personalized and friendly service that I didn't know still existed. I can't recommend them highly enough. My only recommendation is to make an appointment ahead of time because they are a community favorite and are generally very busy.

I dropped my car off here for my annual State Vehicle Inspection. The staff was very professional, attentive, and welcoming. They used an electronic registration form on a tablet, which I was able to complete in less than a minute. Afterward, they gave me the option of dropping off the car or waiting for it. They gave me an estimate of an hour so I walked home (I live less than a mile away) and waited. The car was ready within 5-10 minutes of the original estimated wait time. I walked over to pick it up. They provided me with a brief rundown of the service. I paid my bill and was on my way. A day or two later, the manager of the shop sent me a follow up text to let me know that if I needed anything else to bring the car back in. All in all, a very positive experience.

Josh was able to have my vehicle diagnosed and properly running in no time at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend using Shirlington Shell.

by - Verified Customer December 01, 2016

My experience at Shirlington Shell was a pleasant surprise. I went in for a safety inspection (walk in).Not only did they fit me in toward the end of the day. I also asked them to replace my air filter with the new one I had on the seat and I got a friendly smile saying "no problem". They were very pleasant and offered for me to wait or to call me when the car was done. Just yesterday I received a text from them thanking me for my patronage. I will definitely recommend them.

by - Verified Customer November 17, 2016

I had a headlight bulb that needed replacing but also asked for some additional service for a 2008 Mazda. All was completed on short notice and on the same day for a reasonable price.

by - Verified Customer December 02, 2016

Service was excellent and the process and communication were great. I found the estimates for repairs were on the expensive side. Therefore I opted to service my car elsewhere.

by - Verified Customer November 30, 2016

Great service with a good staff.

I appreciated that they took the time to get me in at the end of the day and were helpful/responsive as it finished later.

by - Verified Customer November 21, 2016

Service was prompt and staff were friendly, but I left with the sense of an attempt at hooking me by suggesting more repairs I didn't ask for.
