Melvin showed very good knowledge of being a mechanic. Walked and talked me through all his steps and what could cause the issue. Will be calling him again if needed.

Melvin was very helpful and knowledgeable. He answered several additional maintenance questions I had about my vehicle. Additionally, he did not perform unnecessary maintenance that I had requested in the quote so it reduced my bill. I would definitely refer his services to friends or colleagues. The service I received was $40 cheaper than what I was quoted at a shop in town. Plus, having to maintenance performed at my house was very convenient.

He was great. Energy was really infectious and he took the time out to actually help me get to know my car. He found out the problem quick and while doing it he gave me a couple life lessons. Definitely going to book him based off the recommended things he says I need done.

Melvin called me the day before my appointment (on Super Bowl Sunday nonetheless) to talk about the issues with my car. He arrived a tad early and fixed my car into the dark of night. I had to go to work and he didn't feel comfortable leaving my key in the console in the car and so he brought it to me at work! Melvin was top notch and my car is all the better because of him.

Melvin is a great mechanic and true professional. He communicated well before the appointment to get more information on the issue and called ahead of time to let me know he was on the way. He arrived on time, and was courteous and knowledgable. During the entire process, Melvin explained what he was doing and I did not get the feeling that he was ever trying to up sell any maintenance and was looking out for my best interest as a client. I highly recommend Melvin to anyone. I wish all mechanics were like this.
