Prices Can Vary Per Job/Vehicle

Quality > Cost

I charge a flat labor rate per job not hourly. I've been doing this a long time and have become very efficient.

I complete most jobs in half the time shops do.


Please collect the parts first.

And you must have a place to work on the vehicle! Nothing fancy just safe and out of the street (Example your home driveway)

Then we can setup an appointment.

Most days I work 9am to 9pm and have multiple repair jobs lined up in different towns.

I cannot waste time and chase parts!

I do offer professional advice on what parts you need to fix the vehicle, and anything I don't end up needing can be returned to the store.

It keeps everything running smoothly.

These are rough estimates! Price changes per make and model and job size/severity.

Investors! Looking to repair and sell a personal or auction vehicle? (Trade Labor for % of final sale price. You provide parts.)


Minimum cost is $50 for me to show up diagnose and/or fix an issue. If you have parts the $50 is included in the labor fee.


I am fair and honest when it comes to price and getting you safe on the road.


When I diagnose your car for the first time I can give you a complete list of issues and what parts you need to fix such issues.
