New Ownership

Welcome to the new and improved SUV's Trucks & More (formerly SUV & Trucks R Us). As some of our customers already know, the previous owner Bernie Robbins decided to retire last year. We purchased the shop and took over in May of 2018. We expanded into the neighboring space, moved the office next door into a much larger and more comfortable space for our customers, and have spent the past fall and winter cleaning and remodeling the shops. If you had ever seen the old shop, you won't recognize it now! We are so proud of how the shop has turned out. It's representative of how we treat our customers and their vehicles. We pride ourselves on treating each and every customer as we would want our family treated in an automotive repair setting. It's no secret, this industry doesn't have the best reputation. This shop already had a good reputation, and we strive every day to improve that reputation to nothing short of stellar. We are honest, fair, and respectful of ... read more
