The name DeKalb County has trusted

Starting Monday, March 23, 2020, our business continuity plan will involve a temporary close of our reception area in our Sycamore location. However, we will be providing repair services through our convenient, Vehicle Pick Up & Delivery Service. Now you can have your vehicle picked up, serviced, pay online, and then we return your vehicle without ever meeting face to face. Those are smart transactions considering today’s COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing/stay at home guidelines!

We strongly urge our customers to “shelter in place” during this emergency and follow local, state and federal safety and health guidelines. To schedule vehicle repair or maintenance service during this period, please call is at 815.756.7413 or learn more about our no-contact Vehicle Pick Up & Delivery Service.
