Great job, very nice!  After having my Mercedes burglarized and stripped, I took it to Lockman's.  They had to keep my car several weeks because it needed so much work, the owner even picked up part of my rental bill.  Randall is so nice, such a good Christian and they do excellent work.  My car looked brand new!  I would never go anywhere else!!

​*****Torrey S.

This place is great!  The employees are super nice and the work they did on my car was perfect!  They gave me an estimate and promised I wouldn't pay more than that price (most places raise the price when your car is there).  They told me when it would be done, not only was it on time but extremely clean!  Over all I had a great experience with them and would highly recommend them.

I ran into a curb during a storm and had my vehicle aligned afterwards at another shop. They said they aligned the vehicle but it still pulled to the right. I called Lockman's because of a friends reference.  The gentlemen on the phone, i don't remember his name, said bring the vehicle by and they would take a look at no charge.  In 5 minutes he had the vehicle in the air with a wheel off and showed me where the lower control arm was bent and the piston shot. He told me that just changing the two parts and getting it aligned should solve everything.  Very knowledgeable group and worked very quickly.  I would highly recommend them.
