Ted Geary is one of those rare people who seems to have motor oil pumping through his veins. If it has an engine...he can fix it.

In the past we would usually shop around for anyone who had the time to get our car into the shop fairly quick. The results were always mixed. Either they would turn out to be "part's changer's" (just start changing parts until you finally hit the part that was bad [big money]), or they thought they were a rock star (or so the charge[$] would indicate).

Not with Ted Geary. He is faithful to carefully analyze the problem and call you back with his estimate. He never does any costly work without customer approval first.

Unlike some in the business, Ted will also tell you when the vehicle is a lost cause. He realizes that we all work hard for our money, and even though he could profit, he chooses to give his honest opinion of the situation. He looks at the situation as if it would be one of his family driving the vehicle and you can count on him to not put you back in a vehicle that is unsafe without warning you of the situation.

On the downside, Ted is one very popular mechanic and it might take a couple of days to get your car in. When he does get it in though, he's pretty quick. Compared to most other shops, he's still very timely.

Like I said, Ted is now the only mechanic we use. He's honest and very trustworthy. Driving old vehicles like we do, we will usually have a car in his shop 3-4 times a year, yet we've never paid a bill that we felt was less than fair. Often, in comparison with other businesses, we feel like we've gotten a deal (not just our opinion).

For the last five years that we've been a customer of his, Ted's always been quick with a smile and proven to be a man of integrity.

If you need more than this revue, just go into any automotive part's house in town and mention his name; you'll be pleased with their opinion of him and his business.
