Our clientele can speak for our service at Big Jim’s:

" I make it a rule to never trust a mechanic. Jim & Sarge have earned my trust. We have given them repeated business over the years and we will continue to go back. The work they do is top notch. Jim ALWAYS stands by his work and charges a fair price. Big Jim's is the exception to the rule!! "

" My first experience at a Big Jim's was pulling in with a flat tire and needing help. He got me in immediately which was nice considering I had an appointment in 45mins. I was out of there in about 8-10 minutes. Tire patched up and on the road. I was very grateful and happy with the fast service !!! Thanks again !!! "

" Brought my truck in yesterday not knowing just how big a problem I had. Already fixed with approximately 7 hours labor. Quick, friendly, and helpful. Thank you Vanessa and Sarg. "
