Car service shops swamped with customers - ABC 12 – WJRT – Flint, MI

Car service shops swamped with customers

Posted: Updated:

(01/09/14) The cold weather snap has left plenty of cars in snow banks, drive ways and repair shops over the last few days.

Many of those cars are waiting to be fixed right now, but the wait may be longer than some drivers expected.

ABC12 talked to  Paul Householder from Al Serra Auto Plaza in Grand Blanc township,  to say their service shop is swamped in an understatement.

Paul says, "we usually run about a 100 cars a day here at Chevy store,  right now we are at 130 cars today".

Mechanics are coming in early and staying late to repair vehicles.

But, even with extra muscle, Paul says some customers may have to wait a little bit longer and not just for service but also for parts.

Paul says, "that has been in issue, a lot of our parts come from Ohio while that has been an issue we actually started getting them in today".

He goes on to say two of the biggest problems they are seeing right now are dead batteries and no heat.
