Quick and no hassle. The staff have never tried to upsell me and have always been helpful and courteous. The service is fast, never a long wait. They always offer a coffee and newspaper. I recommend this locationread more

Had a great experience today getting my rear brake pads & rotors changed. Scott was super friendly from the get-go and the job was completed at the price I was quoted, and faster than I was expecting. He also let me know about additional work that was likely needing to get done soon, but there was no sales pressure at all, it was simply informational. Really appreciate the service!read more

On our way to Vancouver for a medical appointment, the muffler fell off. I contacted Budget auto centres and was able to bring the car in. Scott promptly phone me back with a clear estimate and even noticed that the car was nearly due for an oil change. We were heading back home later on that afternoon with a very quiet car. Thanks to Scott and his team for an excellent service. Michelread more

I kind of went a little further than I should have with my brakes. Scott helped me out a lot by fitting me into his schedule. The work was completed promptly, at a reasonable price. So far, it seems as if I dropped of an old vehicle and they sent me away with a new one! The workmanship was superb, and Scott phoned me about an issue that someone else had not completed correctly. I asked him to look after that too, and the truck no longer seems to perform hard shifts. Thanks for spotting that problem and fixing it. I will definately be back!read more

Great work here! Called for next day service on my vehicle and Scott and his team went out of their way to book me in as soon as possible. Changed my tires over so that I am ready for the snow. Completed an oil change and a 30 point inspection - no surprises. Thank you for the great experience. Look forward to seeing you again next time.read more

Scott was extremely helpful with my car's issues, took the time to explain what had happened and the different options, and even told me about things I should be looking into for the near future due to the mileage on my vehicle! I really appreciated that he was going above and beyond what I had asked for, and I had a great experience with his customer service. I was in and out before noon - speedy service, trustworthy, and easy to work with! Thanks Scott!read more

Scott, the new owner was honest and reasonable. I got everything I need on my vehicle completed for a good rate. With him going above and beyond and providing me a courtesy vehicle, he is my new go to mechanic. Thanks Scott!read more

Brought in our vehicle due to a power steering fluid leak, Scott and his team took the extra time to ensure that it was in working order and was fixed properly. Took the time to give updates as the car was in the shop for a couple weeks. Offered us loaner vehicle for us to use whilst ours was in repair, as a courtesy. As a queer person of color, I did not feel any kind of weirdness while in the shop, treated no different than anyone else. Which is not my experience in places like an mechanic shop. Highly recommend. The owner, Scott, is super friendly and personable! Always leave happy and feeling taken care of, and like our vehicle is in good hands!read more
