  • D&K Automotive Repair Update for November 14, 2017

    Posted on 14, November, 2017

    Hello D&K Customers, Friends and Family,

     

    Last week more work was done behind the scenes again. No actual work was done at the shop, because we are waiting for the change orders (additional items needed to complete the repairs) to be approved. 

     

    Due to the recent disasters that have happened here in California and all throughout the United States, we are being told that the insurance companies are over whelmed with work. So obviously there will be some delays in our progress. Not to mention the holidays are here! 

     

    With that being said, we are still hard at work and we will be open again soon.

     

    Paul is back from his fishing trip and is standing by the phone waiting to help you with any of your automotive needs.  

     

    I hope that you all have Turkey on the brain and are starting to enjoy the holiday season.

     

    Stay tuned for next weeks update. Have a great week!

    Hello again D&K Customers, Friends and Family,

     

    Last week was productive again more so behind the scenes. We had some change orders to turn in to the insurance company so we can proceed with construction. This is a normal "thing" with a large project like this. 

     

    Because we live in California we need an engineer to tell us how much concrete to poor for each of the pads for the racks to be installed (in case of an earthquake). This takes time of course. Yes, we did have racks in there before, but building codes have changed over the years.

     

    Paul, Doug and I met as usual last week to improve your overall customer experience. We only met once last week because Paul went on a fishing trip with his daughter! 

     

    As some of you know, the phones have been forwarded to Paul. Unfortunately, due to the construction, we were unable to transfer the phones to me or Doug while Paul was out. So if you called and didn't get an answer, that is why. Paul will be back tomorrow to help you with any of your needs. 

     

    Have a great week!

  • D&K Automotive Repair Shop Update for November 1, 2017

    Posted on 01, November, 2017

    Hello D&K Customers Friends and Family,

     

    Last week was productive again. The city inspector was there to make sure that our plumber was doing his job correctly (we passed), the electrician was working on wiring up the offices, and the plumber was backfilling the hole that he made. 

     

    It is starting to look more and more like the shop we will be at for years to come. The electrician has a ton of work yet to do. In fact, that is the largest portion of the job. We wish that we could share some more info, but we want you all to be surprised when you come back! 

     

    We also met with the landowner and our general contractor last week to discuss the final plans. All are approved and we will continue moving forward.

     

    With the amount of work that still has to be done, we are hoping to be back by the end of December. We are very close to setting an actual date for the reopening. Some of you know how construction goes. This is no different than any other project. 

     

    Paul, Doug and I continue to meet twice a week to continue working on our grand opening and to improve the overall customer experience. We all can't wait to get back to doing what we do best!

     

    Thank you all again for the continued support. We read each and every response and the support is awesome!

     

    Have a great week,

    Hello D&K Customers Friends and Family,

     

    Last week was a productive week. This was another week that we have been waiting for. Construction crews did not hesitate to get going. Concrete cutting, framing, plumbing and some electrical are now underway. 

     

    Now that construction is underway, we get to do a little shopping to pick out some of the things that will go back. New front counter, fixtures and so on. This is the fun part of the project. It's kind of like picking out the things for your home. 

     

    We are very excited and we would like to tell/show you all that we have planned.... Sorry, it's a surprise!

     

    As you can see from the picture, we are hard at work and we will be back to help all of you out with your auto repair needs. 

     

    Paul is still standing by the phone as your personal Automotive Repair Consultant. So please feel free to reach out with any questions. Or we can be reached by email as well. 

     

    Thank you all for your feedback. We read each one and talk together in our weekly meetings about them.

     

     

    Until next time,

    Hello D&K Customers, Friends and Family,

     

    Last week the cleaning of the structure went underway. A crew of about eight to ten people were wiping the ceiling and walls down all by hand last week. Today they should be all done with cleaning and we can continue with the rebuild. 

     

    Tomorrow the next phase of the construction will begin. We have some concrete that needs to be repaired, so we can reinstall all of the vehicle lifts and some other concrete work needs to be done as well. More on that later!!

     

    We have been receiving your feedback and it is greatly appreciated. We met with our grand opening team yesterday to discuss some of the things that were suggested. Some of you had mentioned healthy food and some tips on what to buy. This being a new "thing" for us, all of the responses help us greatly. 

     

    Doug, Paul and I are still meeting weekly to help better serve you all. 

     

    Thank you again for the continued support. 

     

    Have a great week!
