When It Comes To Auto Repair, Your Comfort Matters!
Let’s face it, its never fun to wait. We do everything we can to make services seamless, and drop-off appointments are always the best; but dropping off isn’t always an option, especially when you break down unexpectedly. When waiting is no longer optional, its best to wait in comfort! That’s why Tried & True Auto set up our waiting lounge! Clean comfortable lounge chairs, a bigscreen TV (with Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, and Prime Video), Guest Wifi, regularly disinfected toys, and free soft drinks help make even long waits a breeze!
