I have a business that runs several trucks at a time. After being recommended to see Rod for my maintenance and repair work I decided to give him a shot. The prices were very reasonable and the work was completed promptly and professionally. It's nice to find a mechanic shop that provides outstanding work and are always honest. As a female I'm usually skeptical about mechanics but Rod has never taken advantage of me, and has saved me lots of money by repairing only what was necessary. I'll be coming here from now on.
