This company is a great towing business. Immediate response, calls to update on their location and arrival, concerned about you and the situation you are dealing with, very friendly, professional and skilled in dealing with the situation they have been called about. Informative about delivery of vehicle to auto repair shop. I am very thankful TREY dealt with my situation in a considerate, patient, cooperative and "take-care of" manner.

Kirby is an awesome mechanic. He tries to tell you what's wrong upfront and so far has always come in below his estimates. Also, my vehicles have always been ready before he said they would be, and on more than one occasion. The 12 years I have lived in Texas, he is the best repair shop I have been to.

I went to Bodywork collision to get my car fixed and they did an awesome job!! Andy updated me every single day on the status of my car and they were very kind. If i get in another wreck (hopefully i don't) I will most definitely go back to this place! deserves more than five stars.

You just don't find honest proffesionals like these people anymore. The work is top notch and they treat you like family. If you have auto isdues go no further than here. Fast and done correctly. Best in New Braunfels by far.

Having traveled around the country with the military, I have done business with many different auto repair shops. Kirby is at the top of that list.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
