We are happy and satisfied with the service that Brian rendered to us. He assists us with the maintenance and servicing of cars at our company. His pricing is affordable and it's worth the job that he does. We normally call him whenever there is something that needs to be fixed and upon engaging him, he is always quick to respond and comes on time. He is good at his job compared to other mechanics that I have worked with previously. He is the only person I trust when it comes to the engine and suspensions. I have recommended his services to others several times and they were also impressed with his service as I was.
