Reliable Auto Mechanic?

Good morning neighbors,

Can anymore recommend a mechanic in the area for typical repairs and maintenance? Perhaps a place near Lawrence or Pulaski. Thanks in advance!

  • George F in Ravenswood displaced New Yorker

    Lincoln Park Mechanic at Lawrence and Leavitt. He's honest and the work is always guaranteed.

  • Another thumbs up for Maltos, on Montrose west of Kimball. They are honest, efficient and lovely to work with! We've been using them for a number of years.

Plumber for Clogged External Catch Basin?

Does anybody have a suggestion for a trustworthy, good plumber that can unclog an external catch basin?

I see the thread posted in Portage Park (https://chicago.everyblock.com/local-business/aug23-plumber-5275496/) for indoor plumbing, might try one of the suggestions there. But I don't know if it matters in selecting a plumber for indoor vs. external.

Thanks!

    City inspector determined on Wednesday that the problems is off our property, a city issue, and since we have sewage in sub-floor system, would put a rush order on the work. After inspector left, plumbing tech told me it could still take 2-4 weeks for the work. With the sewage smell in our basement strong and getting stronger due to the overflow into our sub-floor system, I wasn't thrilled.

    Main reason I'm posting on this again it to thank the staff at Alderman Mell's office. I've worked with Bogie, who has been a pleasure and followed up where he could, and always returned my calls. Last night I attended the 33rd Council meeting, and talked to Jaimie about the issue, he promptly called Chuck, told me to call Chuck this morning, and even gave me important advice on how to file the claim to possibly recoup our plumbing expenses. I talked to Chuck this morning who was beyond helpful, made a call directly to the Commissioner's office, has the issue moved high on the priority list, and hopefully will see this work will begin early next week after permits are pulled.

    Special thanks to Bogie/Jaimie/Chuck for their help at the 33rd Ward office on this issue, I sincerely appreciate it.
