After reading the reviews of various businesses in my area, I liked what I read about Fred’s Brakes. The fact they’re a small shop, independent and have been in business for 40 years impressed me as well.
Taking my car in for repairs is always a nerve wracking experience. You just don’t know what to expect as far as repair and cost if you don’t know exactly what the problem is. You’re putting your vehicle into the hands of people you hope will be honest, conscientious, excellent mechanics, professional and thorough. You’ll find all of that at Fred’s.
Trusting the reviews, I took a chance with Fred’s. I called the shop to see if I needed to make an appointment. Without hesitation, Scott told me to bring my car in although there were customers ahead of me.
Not long after I arrived, Scott was able to assist me, had my car on the hoist and got right to work. He and his son, Rob, were thorough, gave me their diagnosis and with my approval, fixed the problem. They worked together, Scott and Rob each test drove my car, making sure they knew what they were dealing with based on what I told them. They then took all the wheels off my car for a thorough inspection, not just based on what I told them or the test drive. Steve also assisted at this point. After the repair, Rob again test drove my car to make sure all was well and I could leave with a safe driving car. The bill was lower than I anticipated (you all know the dreaded feeling in unknown costs for car repairs) and their professionalism and honesty are so much appreciated. Scott let me know ahead of time that further repair may need to be done but after fixing the problem completely, they didn’t tell me I needed other repairs. Honest mechanics.
I’ve learned they do more than just every aspect of brake repair.They offer other services as well.
I’ll be using these professionals again.
Take your vehicles to Freds Brakes. You’ll be happy you did.
