Mr. Melvin was the consummate professional. He contacted me via phone prior to arriving and was very prompt. He explained the process and what he was there to do and how he would replace the lower ball joint. He also discovered that the sway bar link was bad and provided me an estimate for repair which I took advantage. Once finished, he clean up the are, gave me the parts that he replaced, and did an inspection and also some recommendations. The service provided by him and his company was exceptional. I will utilized the company in the future and hope they send Melvin back if I need him in the future. He Greatttt!

Overall a good experience, turns out our brakes were not bad...I sure do wish the squeeking would stop though. It is a great mystery. Melvin was courteous, didn't try to upsell or sell me on something we didn't need. Will use him again.

Melvin was very nice, efficient and on-time. Made all the repairs in my driveway on one of the hottest days of the year. Everything was cleaned up after the works was done. He took the car for a test drive. He provided an overall recommendation of "other" work that could be performed. Just gave me a quote, but NEVER forced anything on me. I loved the service and will be using them again in the future.

Melvin gets more than 5 stars in my books and im starting to spread the word as we speak. I had to get my brake pads replaced and after a quick description of the problem I was having he diagnosed I was in need of new rotors as well and saved some further damage on my car. Quick pick up from the store and he was back in no time and got right to work. He even let me watch and pick up some knowledge and is a very knowledgable man who you can tell goes the extra mile for the people he works for. I hope everyone else is lucky enough to get him as a mechanic


on March 08

Great Mechanic! Very friendly! I originally thought I was gonna need a new water pump, turned out to be a $3 gasket. We booked him again for our serpentine belt and he did a great job! Will definately recommend him to everyone. It's hard to find a good honest mechanic and he is exactly that. Thanks again Melvin!
