Newell's Automotive Center
Based on several different visits to Newell's over the years, I have to say that Mark, the owner, has treated me as fairly as anyone I've ever seen. Recently I was told by another auto shop that I needed about $1,250 in repairs done to my car (which is probably about the total blue book value of my entire vehicle). I took it to Newell's to have the same service done for $920, which is a savings of well over $300. However, once they got my car up on the rack, they called me and told me that those repairs were NOT needed. Mark could have just gone ahead and done the work, making a quick and easy profit on repairs to my car. However, he was honest with me, and it cost him that profit. But HONESTY and INTEGRITY seem to be the order of the day at Newell's Automotive. To all who might read this review, allow me ask you a question: When is the last time an auto shop was perfectly honest with you, even when it cost them significant revenue? Well, Newell's did just that, and I won't soon forget it. This is rare in the auto repair business, but Newell's has treated me right from day one. They have earned my trust.

Bob Ts Auto Service
This service shop and owner are awesome! When driving from Texas to Kansas on Christmas Eve, our truck engine started to misfire badly. Knowing it was probably a spark plug issue, we began looking for a repair shop in Ardmore to help us. Not many places were open on Christmas Eve. Found one, Clark's Derby, who said they could do it but had to go to lunch first and would be back in two hours. Seriously?!? Started calling around and reached Bob T's. Bob, the owner, told us he was just shutting down to join his family for Christmas Eve, but told us to come in anyway. He was able to fix the problem fairly quickly and had a great attitude. He could have charged an arm and a leg since we were between a rock and a hard place trying to get to Kansas on Christmas Eve, but he priced his service fairly. He even directed us to a nice neighborhood diner where we could eat while he did the work. Can't say enough about Bob T's. Great guy - great work!
Tips & Advices
  • Cameras
  • Motion sensors
  • Alarms
  • Smoke, CO2, and flood detectors
  • Flashlights
  • Panic buttons
  • Door and window stoppers
  • Spot lights/floodlights
  • Etched window glass
  • Combination safe
  • reinforced locks
  • Placing signs and sticker for security systems outside home
  • Personal safety items (firearms, stun guns, pepper spray, batons, etc.)
No, it is possible to install a home alarm system yourself. Some systems are specifically designed to be installed by homeowners. These systems are often cheaper and more customizable. However some systems require the expertise of a professional and installation should be left up to them to avoid making any errors. Review the specifications of the system and/or contact the manufacturer if you are unsure about its installation requirements.
  • Easy and inexpensive to install and does not require any drilling or modification of the home.
  • Does not require a landline.
  • Can be taken from one home to another during change of residence.
  • Can be combined with a hardwired system.
  • No need to change any batteries, as with wireless systems
  • No interference from other signals
  • All hardwired systems run on essentially the same technology so products and services from different companies will be compatible with each other.
  • If moving to a home with a hardwired system already installed, you can save money by bypassing installation costs.
  • New security equipment for these systems is less expensive than for wireless systems.
  • Can be combined with a wireless system
  • Hardwired: A system that uses cables to connect all sensors to a central control panel within your home. The cables are usually installed within the walls or floorboards of your home. The control panel then uses your home’s landline connection to call for assistance (police, fire, medic).
  • Wireless: A system which uses wireless technology (wi-fi) to connect all sensors to your home’s central control panel. The panel uses the established network to communicate with the outside for assistance.
  • A combination of hardwired and wireless: Custom systems can be configured to have a home totally hardwired and equipped with wireless outside communication (no landline), or have a totally wireless home and hardwired outside communication.
