As I have noted previously I rarely make recommendations about service providers. They have to had performed really exceptional work to receive one. There are four service providers with which I have dealt lately that offered outstanding service.

The first of these is Gerrick’s Custom Exhaust & Auto Repair. Jeff Gerrick is a veteran. His motto is “Performance Matters” and in this case it is a true statement. He is courteous and friendly. He doesn’t jack you around by finding 15 other things wrong with your vehicle and his prices are extremely fair and competitive. He did what was asked to be done in a timely manner and at a fair price. Please give him a call the next time you need automotive repair. Here is his contact information: Jeff Gerrick, Gerrick’s Custom Exhaust & Auto Repair, 1201 N. 54th Avenue, Suite 103, Phoenix, AZ 85043 (corner of Latham & 54th Avenue). His phone number is 602-689-7326. Tell him Joyce recommended him to you. You won’t be disappointed.

The second referral is for a mobile mechanic. Stuck someplace and need an emergency repair? Call Steve Sprute at 480-667-8555. Steve will come to you or you can go to his location. Either way, he, too, offers fast, friendly and fairly priced service. Steve and Jeff are at the same location at Latham and 54th Avenue. If you tell Steve or Jeff that Joyce Clark referred you to either of them each is offering a 10% discount.

Recently I had tile installed in my kitchen. I found a gem of an owner to work with. His name is Boris Gnjatovic. His company does residential work. I  had already purchased the tile and it required installation. Most companies that deal in residential work want to provide the material (flooring, paint, etc.) to be used because that enables them to mark up the supplies. Boris has an employee that is a heck of a tile setter who did the job exactly as I specified. They laid about 700 SF of tile in four days. They did a fantastic job and the cost was fair as well. Here is his contact information: Boris Gnjatovic at 602-373-6532.

The last is Mike Alevizos of Sanderson Ford. Sanderson Ford has been an outstanding member of the Glendale community for years so it is not surprising that their personnel are outstanding as well. If you feel more comfortable having your Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicle repairs done at a dealership go no further than contacting Mike Alevizos. I have used Mike for over 10 years. He is knowledgeable and courteous. He will work to accommodate your specific needs. Here is his contact information: Mike Alevizos, Service Advisor, Sanderson Ford, 623-842-8774, mikea@sandersonford.com .

All of the people I have commended and recommended have earned it. They love what they do and it shows. They won’t find “other things” to fix. I left each of these service providers feeling I had been dealt with fairly. They did what they agreed to do in a timely fashion and at a fair price. Sometimes that can be hard to find in today’s day and age.
