Auto Medics here to serve you
In March 21 Issue
Russell County News
By Kim Graham, RCN Reporter

Most people have experienced that grim sensation of rushing out to the car in the morning only to be greeted by a car that won’t start. Now folks in Russell County can call a new mobile mechanic service, Auto Medic, when a car leaves them stranded.

“We’re just trying to make people’s lives a little easier,” said Auto Medic co-owner Jeff Jackson of Jamestown. “We want you to know help is there when you need it.”

Whether it’s a flat tire, a dead battery or an alternator gone bad, Auto Medic’s co-owner and mechanic Chris Weddle will bring his tools wherever the car has decided to stall.

Weddle says he has 12 years experience as a mechanic and he is trained to target mechanical problems. He says their computer diagnostic equipment covers cars from 1981 to present day models.

“We’re not out to replace anyone’s mechanic,” Jackson said. “But if your mechanic is too busy to get your car in, we can help.”

Jackson says Auto Medic will serve Russell County primarily but they will go to surrounding counties.

Normal business hours for Auto Medic are 7 a.m. until 4 p.m.; however, they are available around the clock for emergencies.

They will repair anything from cars, boats and motorcycles to lawn mowers and other small engines such as leaf blowers.

The mobile repair service will also drive clients to their office or other appointments.

“If you have a problem in the morning, we’ll get you to work and bring your car to you when it’s ready,” said Jackson.

For mechanical problems that are a little more complicated than changing a tire or replacing a belt, Auto Medic has a garage where they can bring cars in for repairs.

“We’ll tow it to our shop and fix it there,” said Jackson. “A tow to our place to do work is free.”

Jackson says they charge for parts and an hourly rate for labor and travel time. He also says they offer discount pricing for Senior Citizens.

 “My grandpa taught me to give people a good product at an honest price with integrity,” said Jackson. “We consider our customers friends,” Jackson said.
