Ward Service is a family owned and operated auto repair facility located in Monrovia, CA. We have been the dealer alternative since 1923. "The best job is the job done right the first time" is our motto. We work on all makes and models, foreign and domestic, old and new, restored and being restored.
There's a real advantage to being a test-only facility: you're able to get drivers in and out in roughly 15 minutes. The guys at Van Nuys Smog Check know this as well as anyone, and they're committed to convenience. That's why they stay open seven days a week and make sure every smog check is a quick and painless procedure. All you have to do is pull up, wait your turn, and leave once you've received official confirmation that your car's cough is merely due to seasonal allergies.
The friendly mechanics at Quicky Lube & Tires believe that cars ought to last a while. That's why they help extend the life of engines with synthetic and high-mileage oil changes and perform diagnostics to pinpoint issues before they turn into problems. But their maintenance and repair services are just one of the ways the team keeps rides roadworthy; they also conduct smog inspections and sell tires meant for both foreign and domestic vehicles.
The lobby at Ray-A-Motive inspires nostalgia from the moment clients walk in. Above checkerboard tile, a display case towers in the style of a classic Shell gas pump. Despite the retrospective atmosphere, the Automotive Service Excellence–certified, circa-1986 garage traffics in the most modern of automotive care. Oil changes, emissions tests, and repair services keep rides in working order. The team also is experienced in working with RVs, effortlessly fixing malfunctioning powertrains, and figuring out why honking the horn turns on the microwave.
In the state of California, smog tests are required every two years for all vehicles, from cars to mobile homes. At STAR-certified Smog Center locations, licensed
technicians help owners stay compliant and air friendly through a three-step process. It begins with a visual inspection of the vehicle for obvious emissions problems, followed by a functional exam and an evaluation. But what the process doesn't include is a sales pitch: since the facility is a test-only center, the staff doesn't try to sell owners on extra repairs, nor on gold watches conveniently located in a mechanic's trenchcoat.
Randy's Automotive & Transmission's ASE-certified technicians tend to all sorts of automotive issues. For 35 years, the crew has been rebuilding and repairing engines and transmissions, and taking care of all the other essentials, including oil changes, brake repairs, and A/C servicing.
While the technicians work on their cars, customers can relax in Randy's air-conditioned waiting lounge or watch the repair process and learn what the technicians are doing to their vehicle. Those who don't want to stick around can take advantage of the shuttle to get to work, their house, or their limo driver's house.
