Integrity, professionalism and a total team effort in getting the job done. I have been doing business with "Jimmy Vickers" for over 15 years and never regretted a day. I totally recommend to anyone!!
I returned my uhaul to Jimmie Vickers when I first moved here. They were so nice, that I have been bringing both of my cars here for regular service and maintenance issues since. The gentlemen have always been honest, timely, and extremely helpful. I appreciate having a mechanic that doesn't recommend unnecessary services, and is honest about pricing and work.
I rented a U-Haul truck from Jimmy Vickers last year and was impressed by the staff—everyone was nice and professional. This year, I needed a hitch installed on my Jeep Cherokee and a neighbor on the community site Nextdoor recommended them. The staff was just as nice and professional as I expected, and the hitch was installed fairly quickly... unlike the usual hours of waiting at the dealership. Bill and Vince also took the time to help me attach my heavy bike rack and helped me lock it to the new hitch. On my way out, I met the owner Buddy and let him know how impressed I was with their service. I plan to use them in the future for routine auto maintenance. Very pleased!
Great local place to take your vehicle. They are honest and do a great job.
This is what happens when good people who care about their customers do business. I got to observe Buddy and his team first hand while they did everything they could to fix an issue, not of their doing, that was preventing me from leaving their lot with a trailer. They know their customers and they bend over backwards to ensure their customers' needs are met. I can't thank Buddy, Bud and Vince enough. In the end I didn't get the rental I wanted (which speaks volumes about the integrity of this organization) but I didn't get the bill for the rental that I locked down for over 24 hours or the hours of Vince's time spent trying to correct the pre existing problem in the harness. They couldn't get me on the road solely because they didn't have the time to get the parts they needed. Buddy and his team are superb. I would recommend them without hesitation.
I came here to rent a U-Haul. The young lady who rented us the truck did it very quickly and with a great smile. We were out the door with the rental truck in just a few minutes. And there was a lock box for the U-Haul truck keys when we dropped the truck off after hours
