Mike  Schuster
Mike Schuster
Service Manager

Mike Schuster is synonymous with "Great Service." With over 20 years experience as a mechanic on heavy and light duty trucks, he is a proud member of an incredible team of service technicians. Mike is an active participant in summer and winter activities available to the community, as a little league baseball coach in the summer and a minor hockey house league coach in the winter. You might also see Mike out on the snowmobile trails in the winter. Even though he enjoys all of these great activities, you'll see Mike at work late on a Friday night, just to make sure your truck is taken care of. Because of his concern about the well being of your truck, he has been known to go on service calls himself if the need arises. How often do you see a service manager go to these lengths? Now that is dedication to your service needs. Mike will be more than happy to book you in for a service appointment on your light, medium and heavy duty commercial vehicles anytime.Mike Schuster is synonymous with "Great Service."
