Family visiting out of town, went to drive home and truck made loud cranking noise. Stopped in at Amherst Tuffy without an appointment. Pete issued work order immediately and truck was fixed shortly. Thank you so much. Please support local business.

After going various places during the many years I've owned an automobile I have finally found my ideal service center. Service is always friendly, prices are reasonable and I always feel as if the best job possible has been done on my vehicle. They are always willing to answer questions and they back up their work. I would suggest anyone take their car to this business
