You Don't Have to Take Our Word for It!

Here's what some of our satisfied customers have to say about Gates Repair & Machine:

My husband and I were in Barry for the fall color drive when our wheel baring on our truck broke. Being an hour and a half from home we had no idea what to do so we stopped at the local Ford dealer who called Rob to see if he could help. Rob was closed as it was a Saturday but by the grace of God he and his wife were at their shop having a garage sale. He certainly could have said no but instead opened his shop and repaired our truck for us. Wonderful wonderful people!!

Great place! Pulled in off the highway on a long road trip.Fixed the problem while we waited in less than an hour and we were back on the road. Folks there couldn't have been nicer.

...I am SOO happy I started coming to you. There is so much more preventive maintenance done that keeps my old truck in tip top shape and minimizes the "surprise" break downs. You always stay in touch with me on repairs and cost as you go and that is very much appreciated.

Rob and Melinda are second to none! Proof that small town hospitality is still alive and well! Melinda personally took my mother and I to a place to eat lunch while we waited and when things got complicated, they let us use their company pick-up to drive back to Pittsfield, IL to stay at my son's for free. Couldn't have asked for better treatment under the circumstances! Thank you BOTH so much!

As a traveler from out of town I was extrememly impressed with the friendly professional atmosphere and the "you cared to get me on the road" attitude. I am very thankful for your service.

Rob & Associates, Just wanted to thank you again for getting my truck fixed so quickly and getting me back on the road. I sure appreciated your kindness. The truck ran like a new one the rest of the trip. Thanks again!
