Now that we've moved out of the state we realize how much we miss Murphy's. Larry has worked on three makes for us, Honda, Dodge, and Isuzu, over three years. He also helped with advice when we were buying another car and when we brought a potential vehicle to him he test drove it for us. Work is ALWAYS done when they say it will be. Shop seems very clean relative to what I've seen.

Murphy's Service (Larry Helstrom's) way of doing business should be the blueprint for ALL business owners. He takes the time to explain what needs to be done, answers questions in a straightforward understandable way (for us mechanically-challenged people!), and he and the guys are pleasant folks to deal with. I've had several vehicles of different makes and models over the years, and he's always done the work when he says it will be done, and has actually talked me out of having unnecessary stuff done (less $$$ for him!). His rates are reasonable and you know it will be done right THE FIRST TIME. He's always gone the extra mile, looking over potential purchases for my kids, and offering advice on what to buy, etc. I recommend Murphy's Service to anyone looking for an honest, dependable shop!

My Son's car needed service in Duluth and I useally do all of our car work, but live over 150 miles away. So when my Son call about a car problem, I looked Murphy's through this great service. Well Murphy's repaired the car good enough to get my Son home and I finished the work myself saving about $150+; while I only paid Murphy's $60.00 for his work. I talked to Murphy's myself, by phone, and he assured me that the car should make the trip. I will recommend his service to everyone I know that sends their son or daughter to Duluth for school. It's great to find someone who puts your interest and money first. Thanks for everything, Murphy's Service.

Larry has worked on my family's cars for the past 20+ years and I absolutely trust him, although he's less willing to see me drive junkers than I'd like him to be sometime! Our 2 children are now grown but Larry saw us through a lot of cars--advising us which ones were worth buying, which ones to stay away from--and if we didn't listen, he'd patiently work on whatever we bought and make it the best he could! Over time the kids grew up and the cars we drive have improved, so we don't offer as much entertainment and challenge as we used to, but when we need something all I need to do is hand over the keys, give a general description of the problem, and know he'll do the right thing at the best price he can. Larry's dad spends his time on the crossword puzzles in the office rather than in the shop now, but in his 80's, he's still a fixture at Murphy's.
