Local Auto Shop Surprises Customers with Free Service


During the pandemic, there have been many stories of people being helped in a time of need. That’s the case for an auto body shop in Machesney Park, IL.

The business owners did work on two vehicles free of charge.

It was difficult for Ehrehardt to adjust to needing crutches to get around since he was diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome three years ago. One of the ways he learned to cope is by tricking out his truck.

“I was very blessed… they made a grown man cry,” Ehrehardt admitted.
