What mechanics have you used that do excellent work & which ones to avoid. I have heard of some ripoffs here & trying to compare notes. Thanks in advance for any input on the subject.

He's good, but he took forever (a month) to work on my car.
Bo Sanford is good, honest and very reasonably priced.

Bear's garage and Bo Sanford are the two best in Gilmer and BOTH are honest, fine men. I have used them both and consider myself lucky that I live in a community that has two mechanics I can count on to get the job done and not rip me off.

Iv hauled a lot of broke down vehicles around here and Bo and Bear are the most honest iv seen.
Harpers is also a good choice.

Thanks all of you. These are the ones that I've heard so many good things about. The ones that I've heard horror stories about, noone has even mentioned them so don't know if its true or they would rather not say lol we haven't been in the area long & need a good reasonable mechanic. Thanks again.

A lot of good mechanics around Ellijay. It depends on what brand of car it is. Bear and Johnny Grizzle is good with most of the older cars. Bo Sanford, KARS, Absolute Tires and Harper's is good all around. The best Toyota and Honda mechanic is William Colwell but that is by appointment and recommendation only.
