  • “I was referred to them by a family friend and I am so glad I found them! One visit has turned me into a life-long customer. Friendly, helpful and honest people; I felt right at home the second I walked in the door.”

  • “We have been taking our cars here for too many years to count. Shipman’s is good, honest car repair. The owners, Mike and Marisa Shipman are super friendly, as are their mechanics. Family business handed down by the original home of friendly service, Lloyd’s Service.”

  • “My family and I have been coming to Shipman’s Garage for years, even when Lloyd was doing service. It’s family owned and you DEFINITELY feel at home when you walk in. You’re ALWAYS greeted right away and with a smile. They don’t beat around the bush when it comes to maintenance, service and price. They have a beautiful set up of antiques of tools, pictures etc in the waiting room along with a little corner for kids to be occupied while you wait. Mike knows what’s best when it comes to fixing your car the right way and he has no problem answering any questions you have no matter what they are. I love the quality of service and friendliness of Shipman’s.”

  • “I’ve been doing business here for 20 years. I would never go anywhere else. Excellent service, great diagnostics and a very friendly staff! They fix it RIGHT the first time. This is also not your typical auto shop. The place is so clean that you can eat off the floors. The Shipman’s also show an interest in antiques so the office as well as the outside is loaded with interesting things to look at. I also know everyone here on a personal basis and have become good friends with all.”

  • “These guys are great. I had an oil leak. Took it to the dealer and they were going to charge over $800 to replace the oil pan gasket. Brought it to Shipman’s and they quoted $650. An hour after I dropped the car off, they called me and said they found a less expensive repair after they got everything apart and cleaned up. Ended up paying $225. If you have a problem, let these guys take a look at it. Very friendly environment.”

  • “Great place and friendly people. Wouldn’t trust my car anywhere else!!!”

    Jennie Acosta, Google Review

  • “Shipman’s is the only place we have ever taken our cars to for the simple reason they are the best in town!! They go above and beyond, not only in scheduling an appointment that is convenient for you, but are thorough in the work they do and explain any issues they might find. We trust their workmanship and in-depth knowledge. Repairs can be expensive, but their prices are always reasonable; you never are taken advantage of. Everyone that works there is more than professional; they are kind people! Bottom line — we trust them and would go no where else!”
