With what seems like hundreds of automobile repair shops on the Nassau-Queens border, finding the one that will provide speedy and exceptional service is like trying to catch lightning in a bottle. No matter what the trouble, whether it’s a problem with the brakes, a flat tire or a getting a destroyed bumper replaced, All Across the Island Tire & Auto Repair, just over the city line in Valley Stream, LI, is there to help.
Since 2009, Anthony Singh and his nearly 20 employees have been delivering top-of-the-line and friendly service to customers with auto repair needs.
“We provide a great service with a low price to our customers. We treat our customers good here,” Singh proudly said. “We treat everyone like family.”
One way they’re doing that right now is by offering a Sandy Relief Special. Anyone who lived in an area hit hard by Sandy is eligible for a 15 percent discount on all tires, a $19.95 oil change with a free car wash and 21-point check, and six months interest-free financing on all services.
Being so close to the city line, All Across the Island Tire & Auto Repair doesn’t consider itself as just a Long Island or Queens business, giving equal attention to customers from either side of the border. And its clients aren’t limited to just Nassau and Queens anyway — Singh said he gets them from as far away as Brooklyn and even New Jersey.
It’s the employees’ positive attitude toward the customer, as well as the quality of their work, that has earned the shop tons of consumer loyalty, with an extraordinary 80 percent return business.
“We aim to please our customers,” Singh said.
When you bring your car to Singh for any type of repair, you’ll be offered a nationwide warranty, as well as a 12-month, 12,000 mile guarantee. With 10 lifts available, his mechanics are able to provide quick and speedy service, and when a car does need to stay in the shop longer, they will provide a free rent-a-car. They will also work with your insurance company to make it a hassle free transaction.
Any tire problems and All Across the Island is well prepared to take care of your four-wheeled ailment. With a warehouse on premises that is stocked with hundreds of tires from all the major companies, you’re bound to get the right model and in-and-out service. Any tires that are not in stock, Singh said, will be brought in the same or next day. The shop is an American Car Care Centers-authorized tire dealer and the largest Tire Star dealer not just in Nassau but on the whole East Coast.
The crew uses state-of-the-art equipment including the latest alignment machine, computer diagnostic tools, auto tracker and a nitrogen machine to inflate tires — which both reduces your carbon footprint and makes your tires last longer.
