"My sister recommended Brachs many years ago when my mechanic retired. When I met Gary and Tom I asked that they assure me that when I leave the shop my car will be safe to drive and that they don’t try to cheat me. I have never been disappointed. I have recommended Brachs to many family and friends, who have also been quite satisfied with their work. It’s nice to know that there are people you can count on. And they’re very kind and friendly."

"Tom and Gary have serviced my family’s cars for decades. Very polite and knowledgeable. If you have questions they won’t let you leave without answers. If you need Services they won’t lie to you and you will never be disappointed with their work. They use quality parts and their technicians are overqualified. This is the place to go! We have never been disappointed!!!"

"I would like to take a few minutes to recognize one of the best Auto Center's that I have ever encountered. Tom was very diligent in getting to the root of what started out as 2 fuel pump replacements, fuel system. Although that was repaired, other electrical components began to fail all the way down to the fuel sensors. After 2 failed attempts at driving the car home and keeping it; Brach's towed the car twice and insisting they would not release the car until it was resolved. They did that and above. I would recommend Brach's to all my friends and family who have any issues with their automobile, and guarantee an professional, courteous and compassionate group of folk over there! Thank you Tom, Walter and your whole crew. I am beyond pleased. They took care of me like I was family, and I appreciate it."

"I’m very happy with the service at at Brach’s and I’ve recommended them to family and friends. The owner and staff are very professional, well trained and supervised. At my latest visit provided detailed service reports via email and trustworthy recommendations. The prices are probably competitive but for me it’s worth it because I feel I can trust the work."

"I was using a AAA Care Center down the road before I moved to Brach's. I left AAA because they didn't provide personalized attention and often did the bare minimum. I'm happy to say that Brach's is completely different than that. Thorough, timely, competent, and fairly priced. Brach's understands it's part of the community and wants repeat customers. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!"

"I have been going to Brach’s auto for several years. I have found them to be diligent and efficient. They explain everything so that I understand it. The work they have completed on all my vehicles over the years has been reliable. I trust their assessments and their recommendations. I consider myself fortunate to have the service Brach’s auto offers I know this is not everyone’s experience with the auto mechanic industry."

"Based on a recommendation from a neighbor, I first went to Brach’s. At that time, they replaced the battery and replaced the brakes. Based on that, I recently returned so they could perform a “road worthy” check prior to a road trip I was planning. The work has been done in a timely manner with proper explanations. I did not try to get second opinions, but I doubt that a business with poor practice could stay in business for as long as Brach’s has been in the neighborhood. That’s why I didn’t check Good Value in the area above. I have no idea how they compare in pricing to other establishments. They have the added plus of always wearing a mask when a customer is present in the office."

"Tom and his team are exceptional! I was referred to his shop by a friend and I am so glad I was referred to Tom! His team are super friendly and patient. As a female, I felt that Tom took the time to explain everything to me in detail and didn’t talk over my head with a bunch of mechanical terms I didn’t understand. He was thorough enough in order for me to truly comprehend what my car needed. The service was impeccable because he said exactly what he was going to do to repair my car and he didnt attempt to find additional ways to squeeze more money out of me, like most mechanics. The paperwork and pictures to explain exactly what my car needed were also helpful because it gave me a sense of trust. My experience was so good, that I bragged about his work to others which resulted in one of my friends going there to get her car serviced days later. My friend also had a similar customer experience. Thank you to Tom and the team!! I’ll be back and I will continue to spread the good word about my experience!"

"Brach's Auto Center "

"I took my car in today due to a burned out headlight. Tom evaluated the whole car, pointed out potential problems, indicated the cost of each item with no pressure to have it done there. When I decided to go ahead with all the needs indicated I was given an estimated time of completion which was right on target. I was able to take care of my planned activity for this morning and have the work done too. I will continue to service my car here. "

"Great Service"

"Brought my SUV in for 50,000 mile service and diagnostics. I knew it needed lots of updates. There was a long list of services needed but they were categorized by priorities and there was no pressure to do it now. Everything was done efficiently and on time. Thanks for making me feel safe for the coming winter weather. Tom was accomodating and knowledgable."

"Brach's an Honest Repair Center"

"I have been a loyal customer to Brach's for the last 15 years. They help people like myself who are not real savvy about car maintenance and mechanics. Tom and Gary are the best. They explain things in a way that an average consumer can understand. There are no unnecessary charges and they stand behind their warranties. I call Brach's ( The Lady's Place) and recommend them to all my girl friends. Okay the fellas too . I just love this place."

Mallory from on 9/4/2013 for an auto service of their and their testimonial is:


"I'm 22 years old - There was a bad storm one day, and the cleaning woman at my work, that doesn't speak English, was motioning for me to come outside, something was wrong. I followed her and to my shock -- a lamp post in my work parking lot, fell on my car, and right away I knew my car was totaled. Along with being paid off, my Toyota Camry was in impeccable condition, because for years I've brought it to Brach's for service. My mom and I both called Tom, (the manager) at Brach's, very upset because we knew I couldn't afford to replace the car I had. Tom reassured us that the car was no longer safe (because the frame was cracked), and that we would find an even better vehicle. Tom faxed my car's service record to our insurance, and because it was maintained so well by Brach's, my insurance gave me much more for my car than I expected ! In the process of finding a replacement car, I brought several cars to Brach's for them to check out -- Tom knew I wanted to stick with a Honda vehicle, then recommended a Honda CRV, and even found one on-line that he thought looked good. I brought it to him to check-out, and after he gave it the okay - I bought it. I can honestly say, I can't believe I'm driving this car. I just love it - and know without Tom's help it wouldn't have been possible !! Not only did I get more money for my Camry than I expected, but I'm once again driving a reliable, safe vehicle. Thanks Tom, for taking the stress out of a very stressful situation."

"Great Service for Your Auto"

"I have been going to Brach's for 20 years plus. I find them to be honest - first and foremost, and reliable and their mechanics are of the highest quality. Integrity, let me say that again INTEGRITY is so important to me as a woman and car owner and extremely difficult to find when it comes to having my auto serviced. The work to be performed is explained in detail and in laymen's terms. Thanks Tom and Gary and keep up the wonderful work. You have certainly set a standard that many cannot imagine achieving. "

"They go above and beyond!"

"We have been taking our cars to Brachs for years! Before I bought any car, I took it to them to check out. They are not only professional but kind as well. My car was in for a brake job and I found myself making an unscheduled trip to the ER. My wife was downtown at work. They picked her up at the Metra station and brought her to their shop so she could get my car and get to the ER! A great bunch of guys! We'll be lost if they ever leave the neighborhood!"

"Highly Recommended! "

"My husband and I have been Brach's customers for over five years and highly recommend them. They are timely - we have rarely had a repair take more than a day which is extremely helpful! Also they are very honest and upfront about estimates, only repairing what you approve. You never get any "surprise" charges. Also, because we have and had older vehicles, they give you a great maintenance timeline so you know what to replace and when. You will not be disappointed!"

"GREAT Customer Service, Friendly & Skilled Professionals"

"Brach's was recommended to me by a trustworthy neighbor who I've known for years. From the very first time I called Brach's for service, their professionalism and friendly demeanor made me very comfortable about continuing to do business with them and recommending them to others. Tom, the manager, offers a detailed explanation of the problem, what causes the problem, ramifications if left unresolved and recommendations for a solution with an emphasis on safety and cost effectiveness. Brach's warranties their work and offers FREE inspections of your car at every oil change as well as FREE inspections for potential used cars before a purchase is made."
