Testimonial Quote
The gal who answered and the tech who came out were SO helpful and VERY nice. We are from out of town and needed our front differential looked at to make sure it was ok to drive and he came right out and looked at it and solved the problem. If we lived in town- this would be our mechanic shop. Thank you both!!

They helped us while traveling in our Sprinter. Sine the part was under warranty, they were not able to do the work but were kind enough to at least take the time to see what they could for us. Thanks much!

Testimonial Quote
We were stranded on State Highway 28 on a Friday night in our motor home. They towed us to this garage and the owner met us at his garage at 10:30 pm. He allowed us to stay in the motor home in his parking lot until Monday when he could diagnose the problem. The owner is very nice and I would highly recommend him.
