Glenn and his team of knowledgable technicians are a joy to work with. Whether it is your pride and joy VW Vanagon camper, your BMW race car or your daily get you to work car these guys will treat it with the love it deserves. I can't recommend these guys highly enough, you pay for what you get, but in this case you aren't paying main dealer prices. - Phil R.
Given the impending Snowmageddon, I threw a Hail Mary call to Glenn at Delta V just before 7AM this morning to see if he could swap out my summer wheels and tires for my winter set. To my surprise, he called me just after 8AM to tell me he could oblige. The guys started at the job shortly after my arrival and 45 minutes/$50 later I was on my way home. Can't beat that! It's worth noting that the guys were very thorough. They let me know that my rear brake pads were down to 4mm and would likely need changed when I come back to put my summer tire swap. Glenn gave me a price before leaving. I really appreciate the attention to detail, because no one likes to go in for a simple service and walk out with a thinner wallet than originally planned. - Justin B.
