The Right Way or No Way

With over six decades of repairing vehicles in Cecil County, we have learned a few things about best practices and how to do things the right way. The funny thing about success is different folks can have different definitions of it. Some people are after money and power. We define success based on the quality of repairs on the vehicles that leave our lot. There are no short cuts on the road to success. And, in our opinion, the only successful repair jobs are those that are done with the right parts, fixed according to manufacturer spec.

That’s why vehicles that come to our shop receive pre repair and post repair scans. It’s why we invest time and money in getting our employees I-CAR certified. It’s why we maintain our I-CAR Gold Class certification year after year after year. It’s why we invest in the latest technology and equipment required to meet the standards of repair on the latest vehicles from the world’s leading manufacturers.

Ultimately, it all comes down to you, our customers. This because, unlike big corporate chains, we know our customers and have known our customers for generations. Our customers are our neighbors. We live in the communities we serve. Our kids play little league together and attend the same schools.

This is the path we have chosen and we choose it again each and every morning we open the door to the office and the bay doors to the shop. It’s our great pleasure to do the work that we do and we look forward to doing it right here in Cecil County for generations to come.
