To say the least, when we all reflect upon the Great Blizzard of 2011, our memories will be full of eye-popping snow drifts, jubilant kids and plenty of sweat equity invested in the ongoing removal of the crushing 18-20 inches of snow from our driveways, walkways, sidewalks and all the extra “plowed” in egresses to our residential streets.
We also spent plenty of time helping our neighbors, some of which had no snow blower and were forced to face the icy white depths with only a shovel and empty expressions of overwhelmed bewilderment.
Personally, my last round of snow removal ended across the street helping my neighbor plow the end of his driveway from the icy mounded barriers created each time the city plows would come through. I asked much of my “little snow blower that could” and while it died many times within the strangulating snow it never gave out until the very end. Finally, after completing this last round the belt snapped and those tiny paddle blades ceased to move.
I needed convenience and a quick fix. Truthfully, I wasn’t crazy about taking the time to load “little red” into the mini-van only to take it somewhere that may have taken a couple of days to get fixed. Even more, I had no idea when the next snow would hit. Thus, I recall once upon a time hearing about a local service that is a repair shop on wheels and sure enough, after a quick internet search found Vostry’s Mobile Repair and Tune-Up.
I gave them a call and expecting a long waiting list, I actually ended up getting on the schedule that afternoon. Even more, expecting to pay a big premium for the home service I was very pleasantly surprised to find the cost wasn’t anywhere near what I expected.
After Mr. Vostry finished up, I was so excited by how easy and painless the repair had been that I asked if it would be okay to take a couple of pictures as I told him about the World of Naperville blog. He was more than happy to indulge and I told him I would continue spreading the word about his outstanding service. My personal thanks to Vostry’s Mobile Tune-Up for the passion and commitment they put into making these types of services so convenient here in Naperville.
Now as we head into lawn mowing season, I’ll be giving them another call to drop back by for my lawn mower maintenance as well. SM
