Victor is professional and responsible. He arranged the same day pre purchase inspection that was super useful and informative in decision making. Absolutely recommend this shop if you plan to have your car inspected before purchase.


 I asked these guys to do a pre purchase inspection for me on a car I hadn’t seen yet, since it was a distance sale. I needed people I could trust. I have never worked with this mechanic before but I picked them because of the many great reviews. As it turns out they are all true! They took their time, explained things well over the phone, and most importantly gave me their honest opinion on if I should purchase this car—they were straight up and didn’t beat around the bush. In this case the vehicle was not for me, thanks to their help in figuring that out! They saved me a big financial sink hole. Brian and Victor were amazing to work with and I would definitely use their services again.

My roommate recommended this mechanic for a vehicle inspection, as she had used his services and was very pleased with the honesty and clear communication. I was not disappointed! I brought a car in for a pre purchase inspection, and Victor was able to explain the extent of the repairs required, and the cost associated with them. He also offered valuable advice on how to negotiate a fair asking price from the car seller, considering the work that needed to be done. This made me feel solid in my decision, as this was my first car! He was very polite, straightforward and honest, and it made a big difference in my confidence with future car purchases
