Great experience! Pretty cool that I get to deal with the owner - makes me feel like VIP! LOL. I really felt Scott and the technicians went the extra mile - did some extra good things for my vehicle and did not charge for (thanks again :). I really like this place, very community and part of the neighbourhood feel. Thanks Budget - appreciate it! See you next time !read more

Scott and is team are extremely professional. He was able to get my car in quickly and diagnose the issue. Work was completed before expected and at an extremely reasonable price considering the custom work that was accomplished.Thank you Scott.read more

I called 4 other places to get competitive quotes for work that needed to be done for my car. I could tell right away that Budget & Scott who took my call was different and right choice. Was patient and professional and gave me the straight talk. I felt very informed and knew that the work would be quality with a no nonsense guarantee. Knowing that I am covered for 1 year and they will take care of me means a lot. Thank you.read more

I stopped going to dealer after my warranty was done. Was tired of all the "suggestive repairs" vs "needed repairs" at dealer. I really liked how you guys gave me two options for the repair scenario. One option to replace entire assembly and make new again. Or another option to make custom repair since only a part of it failed. I really liked that approach. I still went with new but I thought that was professional and good customer first approach. Thanks.read more

Been here a few times now. Excellent service standard rates. ALWAYS on time. If I say I need the car at xx time, its done. Quotes ALWAYS accurate. No work done without consent. No nasty surprises. Happy to check work done if you ask within the month. Scott at the front counter rocks. For best experience come early in the day. I've had exhaust brakes oil leaks etc all done no issues. See you soon Scott....but not too soon...lol.read more

Wish I started going to this place years ago........I have been going to the dealer for so long thinking they were the only ones' that could work on my vehicle. Boy was I wrong.....Friend told me to start going to Budget - said same work or better and cheaper. Went in - Oil change.....cheaper.....Brakes......cheaper......Check engine diagnostics and sensor repair.......way, way cheaper. Did everything same day....still can't believe that......Customer service was actually genuine and friendly - didn't try to sell me a new car like the dealer all the time (dealer just has $ signs in their eyes). Bye bye dealer......never again.read more
