Sneads Ferry Auto Clinic

In today's recession, it only makes sense to hold on to our vehicles longer and get the most out of them. Proper maintenance along with quality mechanic's work when needed can be of major importance when you are making every dollar count.

I've had the personal pleasure to utilize the services of Sneads Ferry Auto Clinic and deal with David Shepard there for several years now. Service is the name of the business and Dave sees to it that the work is done right and the price is very reasonable.

If you check around the Sneads Ferry, North Carolina area you will quickly learn that Dave has a solid reputation for top notch work at a fair price.

When you need automotive service or something more extensive regarding your vehicle, give Dave a try and tell him the Sneads Ferry News Blog sent you. Also, say Hi to Thunder while there.
