At Bernshausen Automotive, we're honest with our pricing and provide prompt, courteous service on most domestic and foreign cars and trucks. We also service tractors, grain trucks, and other farm machinery. We will even make house–calls to the middle of a field if needed. In addition, we service most major truck makes and models, including: Kenworth, International, Peterbilt, Mack, Western Star, Chevy, Duramax, Dodge, Cummins, School Buses, RVs, Semi–Trailers, Ford, and GMC. In addition to being a repair shop, we sell high–grade auto parts, which means you won't have a long wait time for repairs due to ordering parts from other places.
