Q: What will you specialize in?

A: We will specialize in quality repairs and quick turnaround time to get your commercial vehicle back on the job. We have lifts that can handle up to 30,000 pounds, so we can accommodate larger vehicles such as ambulances, shuttle buses, bucket trucks, dump trucks or flat beds, with single or dual rear wheels. We can handle any size or weight truck up to F750s in our tall, long, flat bays. We will not be able to accommodate tandem axles or 18 wheelers at this time.

Q: Can you work on other makes and models?

Q: Tell me about your technicians.

A: We have several technicians who are Senior Master Certified in diesel and electrical work. All of our technicians are trained in medium and heavy duty repair and maintenance and all PM services. We will continue the same Tindol quality you have always enjoyed.

Q: Can they work on my tires?

A: We have state of the art equipment to align any size truck or van, and tire and wheel machinery to work on tires of all sizes up to 22.5”. We buy our tires on the Ford Wholesale program in volume, so we can beat any tire price in town.

Q: Can they inspect my vehicle?

A: We can perform NC State Safety Inspections and NC State Emissions Inspections. We will NOT do NCDOT inspections at this time.

Q: Will you have parts in stock?

A: We will stock most fast moving and maintenance parts and have access to overnight delivery. Tyler is committed to get whatever part we need in the quickest way possible.

A: You can continue to take your truck into the main service department at Tindol Ford on Franklin. We will take the vehicle to the correct shop to work on it. You will call the same telephone number 704–884–2210 for any service that is needed at either shop.
