    hes not insulting me but to make a dumb blanket statement like oh look how dirty its a sh1t hole is just plain dumb. i have been going to this shop for 10+years and am great friends with the owner he has never steered me wrong and has always hooked me up. thats why i didnt get mad when this happined as i know it was an honest mistake and i know the shops gonna take care of me.

    I would fire the guy just for how dirty under his tool box is.

    For real bro that shop is not clean. The alignment is dirty as hell also as well as the floor.

    The floor in today shops are nice clean and painted. Machines are clean and up to date as well. That hunter rack is like 8 years old. It my have been 40k when he got it. Now a days as a used machine that one is so out dated it would be hard to even sell for any thing other then scrap.

    I was not trying to insult you at all. Just those kind of places hire losers that a place like mine wouldn't. I don't find it funny that you truck went flying of the rack. The kid could have killed someone if they were standing in fount of it. Not only that but also fvcking up a customers truck i think not.

    This is what repair shop should look like. Also this is not a new shop at all.



    This is a 40k Rack. also note look how clean the floor is and around that car.

    your compairing apples or oranges you work at a dealership they are usually very clean this is a local shop which pulls in a sh1tload of work and really doesnt have time to clean it every 3 minuts and make it sparkle.

    That is an excuse. I have worked in quit a for shops. From dealers to high performance to 2 bay gas stations. None of them looked like that or have to. Its because the employees are lazy and don't clean up.

    I agree with Gix. I dont care how much work you do you should always have time to clean the place. I hate going to the dealer because they are so expensive but then i hate going anywhere else where they have 16 year olds that don't know @#[email protected] working on my car. I just bought a new car so i take my free oil changes to the dealer but after that i'll start doing them myself.

    I do have to agree with gsxxr, those machines look like they were from the caveman era. What matters the most is that they do a good job and you trust the guy.

    If they are going to bring it to there body, just make sure you look into the place.

    The last thing you need is a half ass repair.

    my parents own a bodyshop, and i can tell you it looks that dirty...they also do very good work and come highly recommended. presentation isint everything when you're gettin your car worked on. my parents shop has been around for decades, shit is gonna stain and look dirty when you're doin a dirty job day in, day out, year in, year out. im not saying a bodyshop has to be dirty, but i am saying dirt on the floor of a bodyshop typically means theres alot of work getting done their.
    anyway, man that is ****in hilarious. i would have been pissed for probably 20 seconds, then laughed it off too. that kid is feelin it tho, bigtime.

    Body shops are different then repair shops. you have a lot of dust and paint spilling all the time.

    Look at your paint room. I bet that is clean as shit. If not you would have dirt in the paint and get a shit paint job.

    Lets say i was woking on that lift. I'm going to do a rear axle seal lets say. I have the rear apart and the old seal out. I have the new seal all greased up and ready to install. But u have to put it down. The dirt from the lift sticks to the seal grease and i install it. A little rock or spec of glass puts a small rip in the seal. Customer leves all happy till he comes back nest week with an axle leak and there rear brake shoes are now soaked in oil as well.

    Not good.
