Exceptional auto repair from Duncan business deserves praise

Shawnigan Lake – We would like to express our appreciation to Budget Brake and Muffler Auto Centres (Duncan) for the exceptionally fine service they provided on Tuesday, June 3. Our friend Michael was returning home after picking up a very large load of our groceries around 2 p.m. when the car engine started smoking.

He pulled over off the highway near Allenby Road while we called around to find a repair shop who could fix the problem so the groceries (and Michael too) could get home.

A very accommodating individual, Kevin, at Budget told us Michael could bring the car over and they’d deal with it right away! After Michael got to the garage, he was extremely impressed with the thoroughness and efficiency with which Kevin and Eric went about diagnosing the problem and then solving it.

In just over one hour, the repair work was done and the groceries were on their way home! Michael kept telling us, “These people are sooo nice!” Indeed they were and we think others should know that they are too!

Prad and Ranjana Basu
