Words from Our Customers

I’ve been a client of L&M for many years. My first review and there are nothing but high marks for the entire staff. Charlie and Mike are my usual goto contacts. They are always prompt, to the point and are there to offer any information I need and the backup for decisions.
5 star review from Tom Bethmann
Top shop, family feel, honest working team. Owner is super personable, goes out of his way to make sure customers are happy. I am so happy to have found them. My shop for life.
5 star review from Lizzy T.
Thank you L and M for the great service I get at your shop. From the first time I walked in the door I was greeted with happy, smiling, friendly people. I have been so pleased at the customer service I get. When I leave your shop I feel confident and satisfied with the work done on my car.
5 star review from Darlene Bell
Needed a windshield replacement. L&M gave me an excellent quote over the phone (as usual). Job was finished before the expected time. The final bill was $20 less than the quote! In fact, this is not the first time my actual bill was less than what was quoted. Been trusting L&M for many years now and will continue to do so for many more to come!
