The shop was heavy with tobacco smell, eliminating that odor would be very helpful in welcoming customers.

The first truck they gave me wouldn't start. The next truck they gave me broke on me while in use. The speedometer stopped working on the highway. The gas gauge stopped working so I had no idea how much fuel I put in it. At the very end the check engine light came on and the truck started driving poorly.

The equipment used was not well maintained. If the managers at this location charge people for damaging equipment, it doesn't appear as though that money is used to repair cosmetic damage. Many of the vehicles look "worn." In my opinion, you should make some cosmetic repairs to your vehicles.

Great service and quick. Reliable and good trucks to use. Easy to get to location too. I will always rent my moving trucks and supplies like dollies from Alpine Auto Center.

It's an old car repair shop in Rockford. It's what you would expect. The guy who was there was quick and to the point which is fine being a Sunday and they were only open for three hours. The truck though did not have a working speedometer. Although not a big deal since judging ones rate of speed isn't hard compared to traffic it was a little off putting. The fuel guage was erratic also but it could be because of the size of the truck. I kind of guessed when refueling. All in all... Was a pretty open and shut case. Easy to pickup and drop off and the truck did the job.

when I tried to put gas in the truck it would not take any gas even though the tank said it was below three quarters. we had only driven 10 miles and I wanted to put a gallon in to cover what we had used, so I think the gas meter is off in the truck. I got in a gallon any ways. the pumped handle kept stopping I had to force the gas in.
