Employee Background

Born and raised in the Seattle area and have never left. I started working on lawn mowers when I was 12 and the next thing I knew, everyone wanted me to fix theirs. It was then that I knew if it had an engine on, or in it, I could probably make it run again. Next came cars. I started working at a neighborhood service station when I was 16, pumping gas when full serve was really full serve. I never dreamed I would own my own shop someday.

As always when I bring my car in for service I know that these guys are going to take care of me and try to get necessary work done in least amount of time without any undue inconvenience. They never fail! Their follow up calls with any work required are timely and 9 times out of 10 they can get it done the same day. Their customer service is on point and their technicians are very knowledgeable and experienced. I have been coming here for at least 8 years now and would not trust anyone else!
