On July 12th, 2018, I left a tire at the service department for repair or replacement, we had purchased the tire and a spare tire kit there earlier this... year, the instructions were that if it couldn;t be patched, to replace the tire and that my wife would pick it up after work, even discussed having them swap it with the spare while she was there. At 2:30, my wife called to let them know she was on her way to pick it up, whereas she was told it couldn't repaired and they didn't replace it either, seems they don;t remember the conversation when I dropped it off. No problem, just replace it, it's a 20 minute drive. Nope, gave her the run around about having to get an estimate and call her back, for the same tire we purchased there this year. That's too bad, guess we'll go to Ames from now on, shopping local with this dealer has no benefit.
Shimkat motors has the best people in the business. You can rest assured they have your best interest in mind when speaking with any of the professionals... here. You will be treated with kindness and respect and will walk away with a pleasant experience; I sure did.
Shimkats motors is an excellent dealer i bought my last Jeep liberty new from them. Salesman Rick Scott is an excellent salesman. I bought my last new... car from him. I just bought a new2 2014 cherkee Sport. The dealership is a 5 star. I recomended it to my friends. When ever I have a problem with my vehicles i go there. The dealer is a 5 star in my eyes.
Thank you so much-we certainly value our customers!! Vera Hartman Business Development Manager Shimkat Motor Company
Like most people, I listen to the radio. I heard an advert about an oil change. It has been awhile sicne I have gone to get one so I thought sure why not.... I pulled in and hopped out and in no time flat they had my car moving quick! I enjoyed a nice cup of coffee before I left. It was quick cheap and most of all it was friendly service. I RECOMMEND!!!!!
I had such a great experience going through Shimkat’s! I have recommended them to all my co-workers and family members over the last few years. We will... always make the drive to purchase our vehicles from them and for any needed repairs... more like having our vehicles detailed from a messy husband and active kids!
Buying from Shimkat's was a great experience! All the sales people were so friends and even people from service kept asking how we were. At one point one... of the owners came and had a casual conversation with my husband and I. We have never purchased a vehicle from Shimkat's before and at first we were a little leary but after the great welcoming and quick process we will definitely recommend and will buy from Shimkat's again. The process over all was amazing and we couldn't of asked for a better experience.
I have purchased many vehicles from Shimkat Motor Co. Great place to purchase your vehicle , no pressure and friendly atmosphere !
Great expierence buying a used Durango. Will never go anywhere else.
**Traders Caution** The staff is extremely kind and nice to work with (that's the good stars). But, if you are looking to trade, be cautious, as they will... only give you an "Average" Trade-In value for your vehicle at best. No matter if you have kept your vehicle in tip-top shape, stayed on top of oil changes, and even detailed it every year, they will not give you what NADA Guides calls a "Clean" Trade-In value for it. If they literally show you that they ARE giving you a "Clean" Trade-In value for your vehicle, chances are that the vehicle you are buying has not had it's price reduced enough in your favor; so they show you the trade good since the purchase is high (bad). Just wanting to look out for other Auto consumers and warn them to shop smart . . it truly is a numbers game more than a 'make customers happy' game.
My husband & I went just to look at cars. For the next two days we purchased two new cars. At Shimkat everyone is wonderful. They will help any way they... can. We had a wonderful experience. Dave & Tim went above and beyond to help us. Being new to the area, they left an impression on me. I will definately be back to see everyone. I would definately recommend Shimkat Motors to anyone I know. We love our new cars & are very happy with the service we recieved.
