Al & Dennis are the whole team. They are both very competent on all types of repairs. They perform state inspections, service the local police dept. vehicles, and will take on both large and small repairs. Very up to date diagnostic equipment and tools. Have been using this repair shop for about 15 years.

Al owned the shop for decades, but just sold it to Rick his loyal and competent assistant. This is a safe and dependable body shop - from most accounts the best in the area.

Al has been my mechanic for about five years, since I bought my '94 Honda. I give Al a lot of credit for how economical the car has been to run. He gives me good advice on it, never encouraging me to do work that doesn't need to be done; always guiding me to wait on work that can wait. He arranged for quality body work when I got in a smash-up, shuttling the car over to the body shop with no fuss. I wouldn't say that he treats me the same as a guy, but he respects me and answers my technical questions. He perseveres in looking for the couple of wierd, intermittent problems that have come up over the years, trusting my observations. He doesn't write my car off as old and dull and not worth fixing; but says it'll keep running as long as I take care of it. He says he'll tell me when it's time to let it go. In addition to his honesty and thouroughness, he has a kindness that makes me look forward to my oil changes. A class act, all around.

If they screw up, which has only happened with me once out of the many many times I have brought my car there, they probably will find the real problem and fix it for free. They have helped handicap children to make more accesible cars and they create racing cars too. If I could have insurance cover my car just as my health insurance covers me, and pay them like a doctor I would. They deserve it. Best garage I have ever come across. they have a lot of pride in their work which is the main reason they get things done correctly, efficiently and cost effectively.

The highest praise I can give an auto mechanic is that he is honest. Al is the most honest skilled tradesman I know. The second highest praise is that he is competent. Al is extremely competent. I have no relationship with him except through his taking care of my car, and as a single woman who does not know cars, I consider meeting him one of my lucky days.
