AAA Top Repair Shop Indianola

AAA Top Repair Shop Indianola

When I decided to go into business on my own, I did it because I was not happy with the way my previous employers were conducting business. I knew the positive reputation that Chumbley’s Auto had in the community of Indianola Iowa. This helped me make the decision to partner with this business. So I bought, and continued to grow it, and conduct Auto Repair and Maintenance in the professional, ethical manner that I had set out to do. Proving that it could be done – the right way. Well for the 5th year in a row now, it make me proud to be recognized by American Automobile Association – AAA , to be one of very few in the state of Iowa to receive the approval of “AAA Top Shop” 2015. This award make me proud to have been apart of the movement to make a “Customer Friendly” Auto repair shop. A shop you can trust and be comfortable to send your Wife, Mother, or daughter to – and not be talked down to, or taken advantage of. It comes easy to us ... read more

First Day of Shop #2

First Day of Shop #2

In the interest of meeting the increasing demand for service, we have acquired two bays in a off site location to perform our more “time consuming” services of Chumbley’s Auto Care. With this move, we hope to service our customers in a more timely fashion. We will have one tech working at this shop. We will retain 3 techs at the main shop, along with Keegan, Jackie, Mark and Tim. This Van is getting a new engine installed by ASE Master Tech Josh Truman

My kids are not out of Community school yet- but the day is getting closer. When that happens, I too will have to source my “go-to-team” of professionals I can call on to help my Son – or daughter out of a jam. Sure I will go over the car with a fine tooth comb to make sure it is ready to leave on the College voyage. But their is always the freak accident of locking keys in the car, or hitting a object in the road and causing a flat tire – you know that kind of stuff. I will look for a facility that employees are ASE Certified, and has a nationwide warranty of at least 2 years / 24k miles. A place that gives back to the community and the college or school. Here at Chumbley’s we are those guys for you! I just hope I can find a Chumbley’s where ever my kids attend
