I’ve been pleasantly surprised that in this world there are some honest mechanics who also do a good job. The number of dishonest ones seem to breed incessantly, coming out from the rock to tinker with your vehicle, and slink back under after. I’ve seen my fair share, and their scruples were somehow missing in their gene pool.

There are three I would like to mention, two with their own auto shops, and one who works for at a car dealer’s in an autoshop. High Prairie is not exactly a lovely town, but they have some gems there that you would want to know about if you are travelling through or stopping for a while.

1. Batwings Auto Mechanics owned by delightful people named Gary and Judy. They will not overcharge you, they will go out of their way to help, even if that means checking it out and telling you what might be wrong, or that nothing serious is wrong after all. You can drive out of there feeling good about the service. They are incredible.

2. The second person to tell you that Batwings is the place to go is Greg from CAJs in High Prairie. He has an auto shop too, and if he doesn’t have the time or the right equipment, he’ll recommend you go to Batwings. Greg is honest, will not overcharge, and is as decent as you can find.

3. David L. ¬†from Charrois Motors in High Prairie. This mechanic will fix your vehicle without messing around with it. He has been a mechanic for many years, even though he doesn’t look it, and he, as well as the other two mentioned, are ethical and experienced. He won’t try to make extra work for the money.

High Prairie is four hours north of Edmonton, Alberta, one hour from Slave Lake, and two hours from Grande Prairie.
