Very professional and fast
I had my car fixed within hours. They close by 5pm but they waited for me past 5pm so I can pick up my car instead of the next day. Everyone is so nice and accomodating.

Honest and totally reliable.
My wife and I have been taking our cars to Fred for 23 years. He was first recommended to us by our boat diesel mechanic, who said Fred was the only mechanic he would let touch his cars. Fred has kept out '94 Toyota and our '89 Toyota running way past the time I thought we would have to replace them. If you want an honest no BS answer to any problem, take your car to Fred's Wrenchhouse.

Limping In, Cruising Out Next Day
My car overheated coming through the tunnel, the needle escalating to a dangerous red. I knew Fred’s Wrenchouse was close enough to make it, while steam poured out from under the hood. Fred stood in a parking space on the street in front of his shop while I moved my overheating vehicle into place. Later that day Fred called to say I needed a new radiator and my car would probably be ready the next day. It was and I’m back in business. Thank you Fred and Barry for your kind attention and for quickly getting me back on the road. I greatly appreciate your expertise and care.

They Know What They're Doing
The catalytic converter in my 1999 Accord was stolen, and and Barry, Fred, and the crew over at Fred's Wrenchouse fixed it for a very reasonable price, while keeping the costs down so my insurance company didn't consider it to be a total loss. Thanks, guys. You rock.

An honest shop
Took my car in because it was completely dead. Dreading the scenario we just went through with my daughter's car but it turned out to just be a dead battery. Didn't try to tell me it was something else and charged me minimal amount for the time they spent checking it out thoroughly to be sure that was all that was wrong. Sad that I'm surprised at honest service but thrilled to have a place to get it.

They know me and treat me well. My truck is always fixed right and I can depend on their work. When it is fixed it is fixed.
I like Fred's Wrenchouse. It may be tightly packed but things get done and done well. That is why I keep coming back. Trust.

Drew said that they did a great job. It was done on time at the price they said it would be. The work has held up well. The main thing is that they explained things well as they went through.
