Please Take your business to the shop. I just wanted to take a minute and thank Todd and Kevin at THE SHOP !!!!! I am a disabled veteran and I went to ANOTHER PLACE to get my oil changed and they jacked me around …I ended up calling the shop and they got me right and in change my oil And rotated my tires … They realized my military status and gave me a military discount but more importantly took care of me as a human being and a customer …They have my business for life and I highly recommend this place to everyone that reads this review …
Thanks Kevin & Todd for EVERYTHING. – Monte Hustedde

Terrific shop. Had a single front caliper seize up. The shop honored their phone quote of 166 to fix the issue.. extremely reasonable. Had the EXACT SAME ISSUE happen yesterday on the other front caliper on our road trip through Florida and we had to stop at a shop which charged us 312. So this place was honest even though they knew we were in a jam and needed it repaired asap. Thx – Peter Ryden

Honest people, great prices! – Donna Wiley

Fantastic mechanic shop I was lucky enough to have been referred to! Kevin et. al are very professional, friendly, knowledgeable and above all honest! The prices for work are extremely fair and you can be sure that they will do a great job. I highly recommend this shop, especially over the corporate ones in the surrounding area! – Jorge Blassino

Kevin and Todd are the best caretakers in the area. I always get taken care of from “The Shop”. They are awesome and honest. Its top notch service and quality work. Been a comfortable customer for 3 years. They will find your problems and find the best results for me. Cut cost to help out everyone. No where else will I go to. The Shop is awesome! Period – Rick Saturday

I have had several vehicles here over the years and the owners of this place never cease to do a great job for a fair, reasonable price. I had a starter on my Honda Element replaced several months ago. It began to act up and “hang” when starting, I dropped the car off at 8 am and by 11 they called to say the new starter was replaced under warranty and the car was ready to go. This is the type of service I get each time i take either of my vehicles to The Shop. They get my Thumbs up !! 😀 – Paul Roisum

They did an outstanding job on my car. Thank you again. 😀 – Eugene Greenberg

My previous mechanic retired, so I needed another. Kevin at The Shop was referred to me by a business owner. Because I have gray hair and am female, I’m leery of most mechanics. I called in the morning for an oil change and Kevin said noon would be good. Before I read five pages in my book and drank a cup of coffee my car was ready; couldn’t believe the fast, courteous service. Not only that Kevin gave me a 10% discount since I was a new customer. You can believe I’ll not trust any other mechanics in the area since I found Kevin. 😀 – Lil Cromer

Absolutely fantastic place to go. I have a 2002 chevy tracker and needed the starter replaced. You have to take the alternator off to get to it and its a huge pain. They got us the part the next day and got us in without an appointment in 15 minutes. It was even cheaper than what they quoted us on the phone, he gave us $30 from the senior discount. Go here!!!!! Thanks guys. 😀 – Ryan Clay

Kevin and his crew are very knowledgeable and you can tell that they have years of experience! Very honest place! If anyone needs their car fixed I would always recommend The Shop. 😀 – Andy Lindelof

Vacationing driving from VA… and the biggest concern when driving a distance happened, the service engine soon light came on that manual said was catalytic converter meaning $$$… (second biggest concern, where do you take it)…Todd couldn’t have been more reassuring that I was good til the next days appointment… after a check, determined all was fine and couldn’t have been more fair in pricing (beyond fair, would tell you but don’t want to set precedent)… extremely gracious… Will drive down again in part knowing that if I have a traveling issue, they are there to fix it… trust them completely!!! Don’t hesitate!!! 😀 – Mike Look

My daughter and I were on vacation at the beach back in June. I’d had our 1996 Honda Odyssey worked on just before we left Orlando. I had several significant issues with the work done and had to take the van back to have them corrected. Then when we got to Indian Rocks Beach, the engine light came on, one of the crank position sensors threw a fault and it wouldn’t clear. Autozone in Largo recommended The Shop so I asked them to take a look at it. They got me in very next morning, diagnosed the fault, repaired it, verified the repair, fixed some other things done incorrectly by the previous shop and had the car done shortly after noon. Great value for the price, high quality parts, courteous and professional staff, clean organized shop and customer waiting area. If you live in Largo or near by and these guys aren’t working on your ride, you’re going to the wrong place. 😀 – David Rommel

Excellent Service and friendly staff. Highly recommend them! 😀 – Nancy Cox

Usually I don’t take the time to write good reviews but boy does this shop deserve a five star rating! Kevin and his awesome crew have always gone above and beyond when it comes to helping someone in need! I’ll never forget the first time I found this shop when I first moved to the area five years ago. Ever since then, I have no reason to look anywhere else! Kevin you and your crew rock and I appreciate everything you all do and look forward to hanging with ya’s the next time I need service!! 😀 – Kyrstan McKay

I picked The Shop based on other positive online reviews. Kevin and staff were knowledgeable and courteous and made sure to take the time to explain the work I needed. I am pleased to say I’ve found my go-to mechanic. – Heather Marshall

I have always had amazing service. Not once have I felt like they “found” a whole bunch of issues with my car. They are always friendly and very willing to explain something if I didn’t understand. I always recommend them to anyone who asks for a good mechanic! – Elena Elwart

My serpentine belt went out late yesterday afternoon and I found this place by its reviews.

Got a tow, dropped my key in the box (only complaints here, small lot and no slips to go with the key. Tiny complaints really, so feel free to ignore) left a voicemail explaining who I was, the problem and which car was mine.

At around 930 am Kevin called, gave me a very reasonable estimate that was significantly less than expected from past experiences and google research.

Very friendly, fast, reasonable pieces that brought a sigh of relief.

Thank you so much for getting my “heap on the street” (yes I read the sign). – AL Green

Excellent Service and friendly staff. Highly recommend them! – Nancy Toda

2 years ago I was in need of a new mechanic. I stumbled across The Shop through my son-in-law and have been pleased ever since. The mechanics are very knowledgeable, the shop is clean, and the prices are reasonable. Kevin, the owner, and his staff are the best!! Thanks to everyone at The Shop!! You’ve done an awesome job of taking care of our vehicles! – Pam Norris

I called early on a Monday morning because my hood wouldn’t open (seemed like a broken latch) and they told me to come in whenever works for me to take a look at it. I was in and out in around 10 minutes, they were super friendly and made me feel comfortable, and they didn’t charge me for the quick fix! I will definitely be back since I’m new to the area and haven’t found a mechanic yet, thanks for the great service 🙂 – Cassidy Statler

These guys are the best! They fixed both rear wheel bearings and brakes all around my Buick rendezvous for the price another local shop wanted to fix just 1 wheel bearing. The fixed it same day I brought the car in. Next morning I take it back to them because I was still having issues with the traction control and brakes, not only did they fix the car the same day they fixed it for free. I had a bad sensor on the front wheel bearing that either went bad over night or just got missed no fault of theirs because they fixed rear wheel bearings. They diagnosed problem and had the car back to me on the same day. I will recommend Kevin and Todd to everyone. Thanks for being honest and taking care of your customers guys. – Michael Ross

Best Shop around!! Kevin and his team service all my family’s cars and trucks, F150, Ford Escape, Toyota, Crysler and even our replicar MG/TD London Roadster (found hard to get parts). Great service, prices and friendly honest folks. I would give them more than 5 stars if I could. – Trevor S.

This is only the second time I have been to see Kevin. Once in the old shop and now in the new shop. Great service, great staff, Kevin and Todd are amazing and helpful. They take that extra step. My part was a month out of warranty and they still found a way to get it covered. Will absolutely come back. – Brittney Kryson

The only place I trust to fix my car! Todd and Kevin are the best! – Donnie Rogowski

Great service, great people and I trust that they will fix only what is needed. Love this place. – Jim Martin

Great service! Trustworthy, reliable and friendly. Kevin stands behind his work. – Jon Cain

I moved here a little over a year ago and because of all the good reviews I checked him out. So glad I did it’s really nerve racking to try to find a good honest mechanic. Kevin is all of those things. Both my vehicles have around or over 200k miles. So I really needed someone good and honest. There comes a point where the vehicle is not worth putting the money into and Kevin understands this. One of my vehicles is a 1ton dually diesel and unfortunately he wasn’t able to do an alignment for me my wife took it somewhere and came back with a list of stuff wrong. Took it to Kevin and only one thing really needed to be replaced. Had it in another time and he noticed it wasn’t running right I hadn’t noticed until he pointed it out. I know a little about working on stuff and knew he wasn’t pushing anything but neither one us knew what was going. He took the time to do the research and man does the truck run awesome. He likes to do it right and fix it not rigg it together. The only mechanic I need. – Gerald Nippert

I was visiting Clearwater and on my departure day my car did not start and check engine light came on. I came across The Shop and saw great reviews so I called. From the time I called in the morning to the afternoon when picked up the car I was given great honest service. I would definitely recommend The shop to anyone. I wish I lived closer to have this kind of service close by. – K.W.

I was referred by a friend due to some issues with the last shop I used. To be honest, I do not trust auto shops. I have been taken for a ride more then a few times. I brought my 2001 Jeep because it was leaking pink fluid underneath. It had to do with the drive shaft. I felt it was true because I had owned the same Jeep many years ago and had the exact same thing fixed. Okay, so here is where it gets good, and This place has a customer FOR LIFE! They call me and tell me it will cost a little over 500 dollars. I AGREE, I say okay please fix it. TEN minutes later they call me back and say, I am sorry I was looking at the wrong ticket, I did not quote you the right price. To my amazement, He said it was going to only be a little over 200 dollars. Now, I think this is a first, a mechanic calls me back after I agree to a price and tells me it will be CHEAPER! I cant thank them enough for being so honest. Well yes I can, any car I have, my sister has, my brother in law has,my boyfriend has, my friends have, I will bring to them. – Jason Smith

You could not be in better hands. I’ve got an old Jeep that needed some TLC. Kevin and his guys are straight up and easy to work with. Being new to the area I was hesitant of mechanics in the area, then i read Kevin’s reviews and gave him a shot. I got more work done than I expected, but he was right, it was necessary and the right thing to do. I appreciate the honest opinion. Thanks Kevin, I’ll be back. – RWH

Kevin and his shop is great! They always get the job done efficient and efficiently!!! I wouldn’t trust my van to anyone else. Kevin is honest and doesn’t rip you off!! – Jennifer Zink

My husband and I recently moved from Smithfield RI to Seminole, FL, we have no family or friends here, I relocated due to my job and my car started acting up, it starts every morning but once you turn car off, it wouldn’t restart, no check engine light, we thought perhaps the battery or alternator, while at gas station a gentleman offered to try and jump Start it with cables, car would not start, this was a man who worked for triple A, he said its not your battery, windows, radio, horn worked fine, after about 15-20 minutes, it turned over and started, we thinking maybe a fluke or something then it got to the point after you start it in the morning , once you shut it off it would take up to an hour or more to restart it, being new to the state and not having a mechanic, I googled mechanics near me, there were a few closer to me but for some reason “The Shop” in Largo and reading all the High reviews, we decided let’s try this business, well I spoke to Kevin and I explained what was going on and that we are new to the state and just the way he spoke, I knew instantly that I chose the right place, he listened to what I was explaining my car was doing and he said of course I will have to see the car to give you an exact diagnosis but it sounds like your starter is going, I made an appointment, he took my name, telephone number, very attentive, I went to my appointment today 5/6/16 at 8:30 am, within half hour to 45 minutes I received a call from Kevin and sure enough it was my starter, talk about a man who knows cars, he quoted me a very reasonable price and I accepted, he called me by 12:30 pm, car was repaired, gave me a detailed bill of services performed, I paid my bill, thanked him from the bottom of my heart for not only for the very reasonable price but how fast he got my car repaired and not taking advantage of out of state people who don’t know anyone here, folks let me tell you, if you have any repair needed to your vehicle, I URGE YOU TO CALL KEVIN AT “THE SHOP” IN LARGO, BEST OF MECHANICS ON HIS TEAM, GAVE ME A GUARANTEE, VERY KIND PROFESSIONAL AND ME AND MY HUSBAND WERE ABLE TO GO ABOUT OUR DAY, I knew from the minute I spoke to him, we had made the right choice, thank you so much Kevin for the awesome service, professionalism and keeping me informed at all times, we now have found a great new mechanic, we will not go anywhere else, need car repairs call The Shop without hesitation, thank you again for the awesome service. – Janet R Petrini

My wife and I, Steve & Kathi, just moved to Largo, FL. from Maryland. We were looking for a great mechanic, and we found two. We took our car for an oil change to The Shop. Kevin and Mark serviced our car, and they discovered a small gasket leak. It was leaking on the alternator, which is not good in the big picture. They both worked on our car past store hours, until the problem was fixed. They are both very thorough and honest. My wife and I thank you very much. – Steve Ashton

Once again, Kevin saved my bacon. Yet another problem with my 2004 Trail Blazer and on short notice before heading back to Minnesota, Kevin squeezed me in and again solved my problem. As usual, at a very fair price. You and Mark are the best – any chance of you guys moving to Minneapolis? Didn’t think so but will see you next year! – Doug Pederson

I have had Kevin as a mechanic for the past few years and you couldn’t ask for a more honest, straight-forward, nicer guy to have as your mechanic. I recently purchased a new car, and for peace-of-mind I wanted Kevin to look it over. He did and didn’t have to touch a thing on it. He had a previous car of mine that he repaired quite often as it was 16 years old/165,000 miles old, so he was very happy for me that I was able to make this new purchase. My advise: Take your car(s) here. These days, it’s hard to find a good and honest mechanic, but you’ll find them here at “The Shop”! – Scott Ryan Fitness

Gotta love a repair shop where you can drop an ailing car off, without an appointment, get an estimate the next day and repaired the day after — for exactly the quoted price. Best automotive repair shop I’ve used in three decades. – John Brown

Outstanding customer service. They reminded me what small businesses in America were founded on. Find your way to Kevin and his team they will take great care of you and your vehicle for years to come. – Penny Feliciano

New to Largo area and had to find a mechanic quick – honest and up front, very clean shop, knowledgeable and friendly – will be taking my vehicle back for any/all maintenance needs! – Angela Iacone

I don’t usually write reviews but Kevin did some work on my truck a few months ago and I was in and out. He got it done within a day. Great service. Will be using them again. – William Midtbo

Had an issue with our Toyota Avalon. After reading reviews online we chose The Shop.
Kevin got our vehicle in the same day, diagnosed our problem and corrected it all in the same day. Kevin & his crew were very through and efficient. I would highly recommend The Shop for all of your automotive needs. This is the only place that we will take our vehicle. I feel confident in his expertise. – William Stepanek

Kevin and his guys are great! Very helpful with anything I need and Kevin is always willing to help with tips and advice. Very trustworthy which is hard to find now a days in the service industry and just all around nice guys. Thanks Kevin and company! – Don Van

Kevin was great! Got me in and out the same day I called. I will definitely use this shop again. After shopping for new mechanic in this area, he offered the best most honest rates!!!! – Chantal Laperle

Found this place using google search. Great place for auto repair. Dropped my car off. Manager called me a little while later and explained my options for the repair. Told him what I wanted done. Picked my car up later that afternoon. Very professional and great work for the price. I will definitely be back. – Kevin Hetzel

Two thumbs up! One of the cleanest shops I’ve been to. I took my Integra to get work done and they did a awesome job. Friendly and honest staff all around great. I found my mechanic! – C Black

Kevin is great providing as much detail as I need with what my car needs. He explains pricing and keeps his word about when to expect completion of the job. I’m really pleased with The Shop. – Leslie Scott

I was on vacation when my “check engine” light came on. Found “The Shop” on the internet and rolled the dice hoping I wouldn’t regret my decision. Kevin worked me in the same day and diagnosed the problem, gave me an estimate and I was back on the road in no time. Courteous, competent and reasonably priced. Thanks Kevin – Jim Fields

I’ve been too a couple shops this is by far the best. They answered my call when they were closed. I got triple A to drop my truck off that night. In the morning the where quick to diagnose the problems call me. and fix them in a amazingly great time the work was done that business day. I would highly recommend this shop I’m not the type of person to take time out of there day to write a review but I had such a good experience. I’d like to let other people know this is a great place. – Benjamin Creamer

When my transmission had problems it was so stressful. I found The Shop on google and saw all the good reviews. My car was towed to Kevin and it wasn’t long before I got a call with my options. I was quoted a price and the car was done before i expected. When I paid, the amount due was on the lower end of what was quoted. The customer service was excellent and I have found my repair shop. Great work! Thanks for getting me back on the road Kevin. I will share my experience with my friends! – Rachel Dorn

Being a Women and being young I’ve been messed over so many times but with Kevin at The Shop the price was perfect actually saved me money! Yayyyy! He got my car in and out as fast possible. Thank you guys – Capree Birdlong

I have been looking for a mechanic and looked on here for good reviews. I am so glad I took my car here. You have restored my faith in the auto repair industry. My car kept overheating and brought it here. It turned out to be a blown head gasket. They were awesome. They didn’t try to nickel and dime me. Very honest shop. Quick turn around too. Had my car back in about 4 days. Called other shops for quotes and they were around $400 more for the same service. When I picked my car up it was actually cheaper than what I was quoted. I have never had that happen to me before. Thank you guys so much. I would definitely recommend them. – Dawn Fontes

Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Do not hesitate, do not delay, and have NO reservation in bringing your vehicle to Kevin, Mark and Angel. They work individually, and highly capable as a team. As the daughter of an out-of-state master mechanic, I watched, and I saw true team effort… delightful to see without attitude or judgment. The diagnosis I was given about my car from the dealership where it was purchased was completely false. Kevin and Angel put other vehicles aside to work on mine, because of my health issues, and because I had absolutely no air conditioning with days having heat indices above 100°F. Air conditioning repairs are often their own specific niche. This team correctly assessed and repaired my car with the CORRECT diagnosis, not the one the mechanic at the dealership had given me.
They were courteous, polite, professional, and thoughtful… beyond just repairing my air conditioning. Their teamwork was ever present.
Since I was a young girl, age 9, I’ve kept a journal entitled “People Who Have Touched My Life”. I made an entry today entitled, “Kevin’s The Shop”. It is the only auto repair shop in my journal of 50 years!!! (my dad is in there, of course). Says something, doesn’t it? Bring your vehicles to the hands of these highly capable gentlemen. You will sing Kevin’s, Angel’s, and Mark’s praises, as I do. – Peaceful Ways

Kevin and Mark are competent, polite, and friendly. As a wrench friendly woman, I have a very hard time finding mechanics. Between excellent service and fair pricing, I will be coming back to The Shop. I am very impressed and pleased. – Motley Mayhem

After having issues with other mechanics, when my car started overheating I hit up google to find another one. I came across The Shop and thought “wonderful” because they were less than a mile away from my house. I couldn’t be happier! Friendly and honest, had my car in and out the same day. When more issues came up I didn’t hesitate to call them again, with the same stellar service. Will definitely be returning with any and all car maintenance needs. – Luvn Lyph

Great place to get work on your car done! I trust them with everything from small, routine work, to larger repairs. Kevin is upfront and honest. They communicate with you really well – awesome quality for a mechanic! Highly recommend taking your car here if you live within Pinellas County. – Kevin C.

Kevin always explains what needs to be done and why. Its not much fun to need work done on your vehicle but when you do – Go see Kevin. Honest and fair. – Steve Vonharten

Always look for a clean, tidy shop…The Shop is clean and tidy. I went in for a simple a/c charge – Angel worked on the car, but wouldn’t let it leave until he was happy with the vent temp. He charged it, wasn’t happy, recovered the charge, then changed settings – that’s the way it’s supposed to be done. Messin’ with cars has been my hobby for 40 plus years and don’t usually have anyone work on the cars I build… I think I may have found my new shop. Very pleased. – Ed Rogers

Thanks Kevin for the great job you did fixing my Mom’s car! I highly recommend Kevin’s shop to anyone who needs mechanic work. We found him on the internet, he had us in the very next day to look at the car that had been delivered to us here in Florida via truck, when we discovered a shock/strut was broken completely off. That was Friday, Monday he fixed it right up and we’re good as new. And, he charged less than originally quoted! We will definitely be going back for our car care. – Vicki West

I went in for what I thought was a transmission issue. While I was waiting Kevin checked the car and found out it was a simple electrical issue. Fixed it in seconds. Other shops I’ve been to would have taken days and probably replaced parts, costing me a small fortune. He was courteous and didn’t waste my time or money. I will definitely be a returning customer. – Jeremy Simpkins

I have never met a more honest and trustworthy mechanic. Wouldn’t think of going to anyone else. I highly recommend Kevin and his professional staff! – Ro Martinez

Kevin and his team at The Shop provide great affordable service and are very friendly! – Adam Chappie

While wintering in the Largo-Indian Rocks Beach I had some trouble with my car. Because we were heading back up north soon, I really needed to get it checked out. Kevin and his shop were referred to me by another shop that only services foreign cars. Kevin was able to get me in quickly to take a look. I left the car fearing the worst but when I picked it up I was delighted that they had found the problem wasn’t nearly as big – or expensive – as estimated. His work was honest, quick and friendly. I will be very happy to use his services whenever we come down again and I highly recommend him to everyone. He’s a little hard to find off Walsingham but absolutely worth the effort – thanks, Kevin! – Doug Pederson

Great place to go for repairs. Fixed my Cadillac right away at a very reasonable price. Friendly and honest business. Will recommend to all my Canadian snowbird friends. Thanks Kevin. – Grant Spence, Toronto

Thanks to Kevin for a getting my Subaru in working order! Great job. I recommend The Shop to everyone in the Tampa Bay Area. Kevin is very trustworthy. – Linda Rachel

Honest. Trustworthy. Fair in pricing. Respectful of the customer. Need I say more? – Sharon Walters

Several years ago, Auto zone in Largo referred me to Kevin at The Shop. Kevin and his crew are dependable and fair. He has done repairs on our Lexus and our Yukon. If you want an honest, friendly and knowledgeable shop, then Kevin and The Shop are for you. I will never take my cars anywhere else. – Terie Raftery

Kevin Crotts is a consummate professional. He has been my mechanic for over 4 years. He has maintained my fleet of 4 cars and done an outstanding job. He is always honest. He always stays within his bids. I recommend him to anyone who needs a mechanic they can trust. It is worth the drive from anywhere in Tampa Bay to use a mechanic you can trust. – Jim Brangenberg

The battery in my 2005 VW New Beetle had died due to a bad alternator, so I had it towed to Kevin and he replaced my alternator and did a great job! Affordable price for parts and labor, and delivered great service in a timely manner. Definitely going to be my go-to mechanic for future maintenance and repair. – Eva Mosley

We started going to The Shop for all of our auto maintenance & repair about a year ago and have been thrilled with Kevin and his team…..honest, fair, and reliable every time we’ve been there! Give the Shop a call next time you need service. – Gary N.

Took my car here about 3 weeks ago to get a new Mass Air Flow Meter installed. It runs better than ever (2001 year), and was well-priced. Kevin is a very nice guy and an honest mechanic, which is hard to find these days. Will be taking back for future repairs! – Scott Ryan

We recently chose The Shop for our Toyota Sienna, which needed a new timing belt, among other repairs. Kevin and his team did an outstanding job. Hard work, integrity, and a fair price– That was our experience in using Kevin at The Shop! We will use The Shop again, without hesitation. – Steven Rattner

The shop was able to fit me in on the same day to repair the my car and now I have air conditioning again! They work fast and are reasonably priced, Kevin is definitely the car doctor! – Erin Mussori

Kevin and his guys are professional, thorough and honest. The Shop has fixed my car several times and the job was always quoted correctly before my vehicle was dropped off. They keep a watchful eye on any vehicle that comes in and will alert you of problems while educating you on how to do the same. My “heap is on the street” and running quietly thanks to The Shop. – Jessica Ahearn

When my alt belt fell off, Kevin and his crew were right down the road to put my belt on for me. I needed a gasket replaced and I drove the half hour to come back and have him and his crew do it. – Joey Renaud

Kevin is the man to go see with any problems with your vehicle. He is honest and explains everything in plain English before the work is done. He has saved my husband and myself hundreds of dollars at the Lexus dealer! His shop is as neat and orderly as his work ethic. We will never take our cars anywhere else. Thank you Kevin! I’m so glad we happened upon your SHOP! – Terie and Kevin Raftery

THE SHOP is the most clean and organized shop I have ever been in, and let me tell all us women you can bring your car there and know what needs to be done “is what needs to be done” and with trusted, loyal expertise care for your car. – Lori Pettigrew

A few months ago I was almost stranded with a broken shifter cable. I stopped by The Shop and Kevin dropped what he was doing and got me going. Once he determined what the part would cost and the availability, he called me and scheduled a day to come in and have it replaced. Great people – Remarkable service – Highly recommended!! – Tommy Chamberlain

Today one of our cars is in for regular maintenance, so I want to give a shout out to Kevin Crotts at The Shop. Over the past twelve years I have only trusted two people to work on my cars and Kevin is one of them. If you need any kind of automotive repair or maintenance done, take your car to Kevin. He is honest and will only repair what needs repairing. I have never had an issue with his work or a bill. From oil changes, to air conditioning, to transmissions to complete engine work, go see Kevin. – Rick Saltarelli

I work on cars and planned on installing a new starter on my vehicle. However, I had come down with a cold and did not have the energy to do the project. My starter was shot and needed to be done ASAP. I called and they got me in the same day. Thanks for the quick service. Great job. Highly recommend. Will use again for bigger projects that I don’t have the time for. – J. Dunn

A BIG shout out to Kevin Crotts at The Shop! He got me in this afternoon and stayed late to make sure he could get my work truck back on the road as soon as possible. The truck is running great and I couldn’t be happier! If anyone out there needs a good mechanic in Pinellas county, there isn’t anyone better! 727-474-3796 – Greg, Priceless Pool Service

Kevin, does a complete job, somebody you can count for SERVICE. I have used him more than once. – Gary’s Roof & House Painting Co.

I have had my car serviced at The Shop both for regular maintenance like oil changes, for a multi-point inspection before a long trip and then to have the transmission serviced. Kevin and his team are professional, they only do what is necessary and they explain what they are doing to your car. If you are in Pinellas County, especially if you own a fleet of vehicles, The Shop is the place to have your vehicles serviced. – Enrico (Rick) Saltarelli, Salty Breeze Cruise Planners

As a woman, auto repair shops have scared me… That is until I met Kevin and took my car to the shop. He was very trusting, explained everything to me and gave me options that I was comfortable with. No high pressure sales, just good ole fashioned advice and customer service. I know that I can go in for an oil change and not be pressured into unnecessary extras. – Marie Etheridge, Etheridge Carpet & Tile

My husband is the D-I-Y oil change kind of guy, but when I got a car he couldn’t do, I began taking it to The Shop. The hubby was so impressed with Kevin’s no-frills pricing and matter-of-fact approach to servicing my car, he began taking ALL our cars to Kevin. And he referred our friends to him, too! Whether it’s regular maintenance or fixing a problem, we trust Kevin to take care of it. If you’re in Pinellas County, there’s no better guy to trust with your vehicle! – Tonya Homan, Juice Marketing and Design

My 2000 Taurus was tired. I had a laundry list of things that did not work even though it’s only 14 years young, 57,002 miles on it. When I pulled away nothing squeaked, the Air Conditioner blew Ice Cubes. We are happy and glad to refer our friends and thankful for the friends who referred us. – Jim & Karen

A big thank you to Kevin Crotts for taking care of my cousin’s car at the last minute yesterday! He got her in, fixed up, and back on the road so she could drive to Orlando and make her flight for a vacation to the Dominican! She called me in tears, asking for my mechanic’s information, then called me later with joy, telling me she felt he undercharged and over-delivered! Thank you Kevin, you have a new client for life! – Tonya Lonsbury

Once again Kevin and the guys have come through for me. Needed a water pump and new serpentine belt. Excellent job plus Mark even cleaned the oxidation off my headlights. Highly recommended! Thank you Kevin, you have a new client for life! – Tommy Chamberlain
