Miscellaneous Auto Services

For whatever else may pose a threat to your vehicle's road performance, our knowledgeable auto specialists provide a number of other miscellaneous auto services. And because our work is guaranteed, you can rest assured that you're receiving the best workmanship possible. Let us know how we can help you! Contact us at 518-437-0304 to set up an appointment for additional quality auto services.

Our miscellaneous auto services include:

    Most Extended Warranties Accepted
    An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At Albany Light Truck & Car Repair in Albany, NY 12205, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.

    After-Hours Drop Off
    Sometimes auto repair needs arise long after most auto repair shops have closed (most auto repair shops close at 6 pm). With after-hours drop off services, you leave your car at the mechanics shop for repair even if the shop has closed. You simply fill out an envelope, put in your keys, and drop it in a drop box. The auto shop will only contact you when your car is ready or when they need additional information. At Albany Light Truck & Car Repair, we value your convenience and that is why we offer after-hours drop off services. A completed Drop-Off Form will help the mechanic diagnose any problems. Even if we have closed, you just drop-off your vehicle at our shop and our mechanics will work on it and contact you when it is ready.

    RV Repair
    Having issues with your recreational vehicle? Do not take your RV to just any mechanic. Rely on a professional only - a person/auto shop like Albany Light Truck & Car Repair that has a track record dealing with recreational vehicles. For all your RV repair and maintenance needs, contact or visit Albany Light Truck & Car Repair today. At Albany Light Truck & Car Repair, we have qualified mechanics that have extensive experience repairing and servicing RVs.

    Performance Modifications
    Do you have a passion for speed and performance? Performance modifications on your car let you attain high levels of speed and performance. This type of modification involves changing or completely replacing some of your vehicle's parts with high performance ones to boost its performance and speed. Mechanics at Albany Light Truck & Car Repair have a passion for performance too. The mechanics will make all the necessary performance modifications to ensure you get the best performance from your drive. For all your performance modification needs, contact us at 518-437-0304 or visit Albany Light Truck & Car Repair today.

  • The staff is always kind, courteous, and honest. Even when I'm sitting in the waiting area and hear them being normal humans with other, they are just genuinely good people. The guys (and apparently gal now) you have working the desk make me feel at ease in a place where I'm at their mercy - going to the mechanic isn't daunting there. And though I know nothing about cars, I trust your mechanics implicitly. It doesn't feel like a business, it is more like I'm paying a friend to look at my car for me.

Great service!!!!
    -Larry R.

  • I like that you stay open later now. I can finish my work day and still get my car serviced. I appreciate all the times you have given me rides to work. I like that Vinny or Brain will call and let me know what needs to be fixed, give me a estimated estimate. I like that you fix the problem the first time and I don't have to come back over and over again. I like that I can trust my car to your service techs.
    -Rita P.

  • Friendly, efficient service. Everything thoroughly explained.
    -Dan R.

  • Very opened communication with knowledgeable folks who provided me with options of solutions and not just a list of problems. Took their time to have my best interest in mind and keep me informed of any concerns they found. only thing I would of liked improved would of been more advertising it took me having a clutch issue to find such a good shop, wish I found/heard of you all sooner.
