"I have never been one to keep up with the Jones' or even the Johnsons' for that matter. I drive a '91 Toyota Previa with 260K miles and a few bruises. The vehicle has served our family well. And I have no intention of replacing it anytime soon. Things had gotten pretty sloppy and I was afraid it was more than just struts. As always we had a time crunch, add to that the fact that the vehicle has a few miles on it... and well you get the picture. I made a very wise choice going to Shane O'Connell at Alignment & Brakes Plus on Carolina Street here in Bellingham. Shane said he would dig into it first thing to make sure he had time to order anything that was worn or broke. When I swung by later that morning, Shane showed me that everything looked good and he was well on his way to getting the job done.
I went away feeling that I was being well taken care of and that's a rare thing when you are talking about mechanics. Don't go to anyone else until you have talked to Shane about your brakes, shocks or alignment. They even have an online computer in the waiting room if you need to answer some emails or finish that term paper while you're waiting. Alignment & Brakes Plus 508 Carolina St, just West of Youngstocks next to Bekins Storage (360-738-0659)."

"I have always had exceptional, honest, great service here, and great prices. I won't take my car anywhere else!"
"I have used Shane's services for years. He is honest, and fair. never tries to sell you anything you don't need. His work is high quality. never had any complaints about this shop. A++"
"I have had excellent service from Shane and his staff. I've taken my Subaru there twice. The first time, I had my front pads, calipers and rotors replaced for significantly less than other shops quoted me. After I got the car back I had a slight issue with the calipers sticking and I took it back the next day and Shane made sure to squeeze it into his schedule. I had the car back and working perfectly within a couple hours. More recently, I took it in to have the rear brakes looked at. It turned out to be something else but Shane was super honest and didn't even charge me for looking at it. If you want honest, reliable brake service, this is the place to do it."
"These guys saved my " ". I had an estimate from a big franchise shop on James St that was scary - demanding the replacement of a lot of alignment and suspension parts bringing the price to $1500. After Shane and his crew looked at it, they said all it needed was a wheel bearing on the right wheel and shocks which I was able to get used for $100. In conclusion, the repairs cost a fraction of the price the big boys were calling for. I feel sorry for anyone that gets taken by them."
"Really friendly service, provided detailed feedback on my car and helped me figure out exactly what I needed."
"Wonderful service great price."
