My horse trailer blew it's second tire during trip... (my fault, they were 6 yrs old, figured I would replace after vacation). Cory was so helpful over phone, set up roadside tire service if my friend couldn't get to me. When I arrive at Marion location. Cory & Jess got me set up me up with new tires all around... they worked at lightning speed, as the horses were on board. They also allowed my friend to pull his truck/ trailer into an empty bay, so my friends horses weren't baking in the sun. I recommend this location highly. PS: Will be back down from Chicagoland in five years for tires!
Great service, nice very professional people willing to help anyway they can, after I spend almost the day at speedco for nothing we called Vernell’s shop and they welcomed us to do the repare on my truck, I was guided and shown step by step what is done, I absolutely recommend this shop won’t be disappointed, good honest and professional, they also provide towing and trailer park while repare is done, easy access right at Pilot Truck Stop in Marion, IL
I was going to take my cdl driving test to become a school bus driver. I broke the license plate light and cover about an hour before my test. Needless to say I was in a bit of a panic. Our bus mechanic suggested we try this Large trucking garage to see if they could fix it. When I got there the gentleman that came out to talk to me was so nice. He encouraged me to calm down and not to let this get to me, that everything was going to be just fine. He said he could fix it and instructed us to pull it into the garage. In less than 5 minutes we were on our way back to the DMV. The best part of all....NO CHARGE!!! I was at his mercy, he could have taken advantage. I needed that fixed or I failed automatically. I have to be honest I was so upset that I don't remember his name. But I can't thank him enough. There are still good people in this world!
I wish we could give this business more than 5 stars they definitely earned at least ten! Lex and Bob really went above and beyond when we found ourselves needing to be towed late at night. We just found out I was pregnant and then our bus broke down, but they made sure we were safe and comfortable while they made repairs. They are like family now and we will not do business anywhere else. The prices are more than fair and they went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied with our repairs and even replaced our missing gas cap just because that is the type of people they are. They really care for and take great care of veterans and families. Huge shout out and thank you to Lex, Bob. Corey and the rest of the crew, a million thanks for taking such great care of us in our time of need we will be customers for life!!!
