Lakewood Service Center
We will be repeat customers. My husband will be bringing his jeep to them in the future. I took a big chance when I called Pickerings Auto, as, I went off a few comments on the Applewood Neighborhood facebook page, and, Pickerings did not disappoint. My son, returning from Germany to take a new position as a scientist in Bar Harbor, Maine, had been driving his 1999 Honda CRV prior to Germany and planned on driving it to Bar Harbor. It has about 200,000 miles. Pickerings gave me a quick and thorough and clear estimate as to what would NEED to be done, and, what would be nice to get done, but, wouldn't affect a successful drive across the country in winter. We approved for the basic must do's, and crossed our fingers. Upon coming home, Nick drove to the mountains and discovered his windshield wipers didn't work. I panicked. These items seemed rather essential for a cross country trip. I called Pickerings, immediately brought the car in (Nick would be leaving the same week), and THEY went above and beyond in the attention the paid to fixing the problem, plus, making the rear wiper more efficient. No charge. I, at no time was treated less than with respect, and, trust me, it was dealing with a mother bear protecting her young. The work was professionally done, the drop off and pick up were easy during Covid 19 times, my questions, and, Nick's subsequent questions, were promptly answered clearly and satisfactorily. I cannot praise this local auto repair service enough to do them justice. Thank you to the mechanics and staff at the Lakewood, Pickerings!!!!! Oh, and, Nick made it, with a side trip to Niagara Falls, another to get Buffalo Hot wings, and he is currently driving all over getting furnishings for his new apartment. I heartily recommend Pickerings for anyone looking for a trustworthy, qualified, and, capable auto shop. I would bring my car to them, but, I drive a BMW, and, to their credit, they stick to what they are good at!
