  • I was traveling north in Paducah, Kentucky with blown hub seal on a hot shot trailer. A local RV joint couldn't help me out, but recommended Vernell's almost an hour to the North. I called ahead and service manager Cory was incredibly helpful. He was correct in that they had the parts for the axle brand on my trailer, and he was able to get me in and back out without seriously impacting my HOS driving time. I can't say enough good about these guys. Cory and his mechanics are great. Polite, professional, and really good at what they do. Many thanks to the shop.

  • Vernell's to the rescue. To make a long story short, after waiting over three hours for my insurance to find a tow service, Vernells was available. Lucas was the towing specialist and such a patient and detailed professional. Towed vehicle to the auto shop and left my info along with key at drop box. Thank you Vernell's and Lucas. Highly recommend.

  • Awesome staff and quick towing will definitely use them for future calls when I got 2 tires from Walmart and they had a 4hr wait I called vernell's and they said that they could put the tires on and I could continue my trip with my grandkids to the house.

  • They definitely keep their word on work and fixing problems. I appreciate the honesty. Had a problem with check engine symbol coming on when tech was checking fuses, tech didn't have scanner with him but said he would return to fix problem. He showed back up around time he gave and took care of issue. Thank you Danny (tech) and Curtis with the communication on ETA and customer service.

  • This place is great. Honest mechanics, yes I can hardly believe it myself. I would highly recommend this shop. They are located next to pilot . The shop is 24 hours. The prices are great. They have a large parking area, which was almost empty. I know why cause these guys get you in and out. Time is money and they save you both.
