While on vacation recently we unfortunately encountered a broken axle on our travel trailer. Being from out of town and the fact that it was a Sunday evening we had no idea who to call for repair. The tow truck driver recommended Absolute Repair and we were towed to that facility. The tow truck driver notified the owner of Absolute Repair that we were in their parking lot. On Monday morning we were greeted by Andrew who evaluated the situation. Peter (the owner) and Andrew were very easy to work with and kept us informed of their efforts to secure a new axle. Once they had the axle they worked quickly and diligently to put the new axle on the trailer and we were back on the road late Monday afternoon. Peter himself worked with another tech to complete the repair. Peter and Andrew are both very knowledgeable, explaining in detail the repair, as well as being concerned for our comfort and offering us the use of their lounge. The repair price was very reasonable. Andrew even placed a follow up call to us the next day to make sure everything was fine with the trailer. We cannot speak highly enough of this company and would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. Our sincere thanks to Peter and Andrew for assisting us and getting us back on the road so quickly.
Great friendly people and super fast service they had the tire changed in about 20 min.....had the tire dome before the paper work was ready
The last couple weeks we started using this shop. People there professional and helpful, also I would like to add a special thanks for Andrew he is very good person to dealing with. Encourage anyone have an issue with their trucks start go to them. THANKS ANDREW 😉
Let me first start with when I called Absolute Repair. I spoke to Ralph and told him I had and electrical issue with my head light, his response was come in I’ll have some one take a look at it right away ( I was blown away with that answer ) when I got there all roadside techs were out on calls so I thought well it was too good to be true. Then I was blown away Again when the owner of the shop said he help me himself and started to diagnose and resolved the problem. Thank You Peter I have to say I will Go back To Absolute Repair for years to come.
They changed the fuel filters, little bit expensive but the job was done quick.
service, and professionalism on time saved my run on bad tire hot load they also have road sevice awesome customer service I can't say not a thing bad . Hey Hey rate 10
Awesome local shop friendly people very knowledgeable and fast great prices and rates as well!
Excellent experience,very great job putting a fuel injector in truck.Friendly employees,got in and out of there fairly reasonable.
Good customer service. Fair prices. Overall satisfaction. Thanks Andrew & Zak!
1st time at this shop was august 2019 great service then. Second time this past monday 30 March 2020. Superb service as the last time. This time however. My repairs were much more involved. The tech (Eric) kept me involved with frequent updates and what he found and what was needed. To expedite the repairs while waiting for parts on one aspect he would work on other things i wanted done. There were issues with parts as my tractor has been cobbled together from several others. He (Eric) did not bolt it together and make it pretty. He investigated looked up part numbers and actully informed me of several aspects of my truck i should know when going in for service. The parts supplier they use was also ecceptional as he made multiple trips while trying to get the right clamps for an exhaust leak and Jake brake bolts. If you want to be treated like a customer should. Come to absolute. I even recieved an after service follow up call to make sure everything was running well. FYI service was on an 08 Pete with a C-15. Also as the tech waited until after 6pm well after closing to finally get me back operational. As the parts guy had to make 1 final run. Another truck came in with a flat repair. Even though it was nearly 2 hrs after closing Eric changed the driver's tire to get him back on the road
Absolute Repairs,,, one of the best shops i have ever had the privilege of having work dun at. The owner,,,sorry i only know you as Peter,,, is the upmost in polite and very very knowledgeable. The techs where all hard workers, and as well very polite and social,to both me as well as my 4 legged buddy Onk. The shop is very well kept very clean and well maintained. The drivers lounge was by far one of the largest and most comforting ones i have ever spent a day and a half in,,,,comfy couch,, as well as free snacks and drinks. I spent a shinny penny there in one day and as i left the shop a new issue arose.... I called them up 10 miles away, and the owner himself came out to help me,, he not only fixed one issue with the roadside service truck,,on the side of the road,,but he also had me go back to the shop, FOLLOWING ME the whole way back,, then noticing i was still having n issue. He then also proceeded to fix a small wiring issue for me for free.. simple fix ,,YES,,, time ,labor and parts YES. Again, he,,Peter, the owner did all this for me for free.... So to all of you at Absolute Repair i must say THANK YOU VERY MUCH you are one hell of a righteous shop and crew and you have and will forever be highly respected and spoken of by me... to any drivers in need of service in the Cumming Iowa area,,, it would be in your best interest to contact this shop. Again thanks alot guys you are all hella awesome! O and for any one who wants to claim this shop is super expensive,, please call around,, their prices are very fair and even lower then most all big name company shops.
Good customer service, and very nice people!!! Great place to bring your vehicle!!!
I had a air-conditioning leak in my motorhome. Andrew worked with me to get it in and get it fixed. They fixed a major leak and tested and fixed 2 more. Great attention to detail. Andrew kept me informed as they worked their way through the issues.
Fast response, fast diagnostics, fast service . Reasonable rates and prices and most important FRIENDLY PEOPLE . Definitely recommend
Called Brittany after calling every other mechanic in the Des Moines area. All mechanics booked and were not helpful. We were in a hurry and needed immediate repairs. Brittany was more than willing to take care of us. It is nice to have folks to count on when your in the trucking business. If you are looking for mechanics to get you back on the road without spending a fortune then I highly recommend Absolute repair.
Thank you so much Pete! You provided the best service and advice that we have had in our short lives as RV owners (even in below zero temps!) You went above and beyond. We're so glad to have found Absolute Repair - highly recommend them!
Just a real nice town and a real nice staff oh.....and a courtesy at to boot can't beatem
Called them up at 4am broke down 70 miles away from them. They came took a look needed a tow for this big repair. But because it was -4 they got there as fast as they could. And did a great job repairing my semi fast and great service !!
Great customer service. They get the job done right!!
Great company, great people. Service and workmanship are top notch. Very knowledgeable on many different types of equipment. Call these guys before you call anyone else
Fantastic customer service. Was in for a tire for my truck they got it back up and going very quickly. While I was there they also did a brake and battery check for me. Found out for no charge I needed a new battery. Very very reasonably priced and the one on one customer service felt like I was back in the 60’s at your local service station. You don’t find that kind of service anywhere else these days. Also the customer lounge was very nice and the snacks and beverages for free. Thanks again Peter and all your staff
I have had great experience with them working on my truck that I just recently bought,and how fast that they was able to get all the work done in a timely manner , very professional and when I had another issue arise they were there to get it done quickly
We were heading to Arizona for the winter, Our truck was having some serious issues. We pulled into Cummings Friday afternoon, We called Absolute Repair, Peter looked at it Saturday morning spent sometime in his shop, he advised us to have the chev garage look at it Peter and his wife was absolutely amazing with their hospitality!! He let us park our fifth wheel in his lot and offered us to plug in our unit. We can't Thank you enough.
Absolute Repair is a great place to get your truck or trailer worked on. Peter (the owner) is very knowledgeable in what he does as I have put him to the test many times over. He has put in several hours into diagnosis the problems I have had with my truck that not even Kenworth could figure out and made the repairs. He just doesn't give up. Their customer service is top notch and they stand behind their work. I have taken my trucks to other shops and walked out of there with a huge bill and nothing much done and a lot of down time. Absolute Repair always gets me right in and out with as little down time as possible. These are very important factors when considering your bottom line, without good mechanics its really hard to make a profit.
Believe all of the good reviews on here. Look at the names of the ones leaving a bad review and you will understand the issues clearer. Peter and his shop foreman were upfront and honest from the start and kept me informed of what was going on along the way. My flywheel ended up being bad so I had some extra unseen costs and agreed to 3650.00. When I went to pay the bill they informed me that they got some of the parts cheaper than quoted and I only paid 3200.00 for my total bill. Who is that honest? This is the first shop that hasn't ripped me off. Thank you. I will do my business here moving forward.
Absolute repair was very professional and accommodating to take care of my needs! Great group of people and you can trust them with all your repair needs!! Thanks Angela for getting us the help we needed!!
When I got there, the maintenance staff immediately began to operate. The people there were friendly, fast and reasonable.
Peter, thank you for your quick response to our roadside repairs, your communication skills are awesome, you kept your time schedule , unlike other companies that callback & extend the arrival. We have the confidence to continue with our travel plans. Your the best, We highly recommend your company
