Free Local Pickup and Delivery with Repairs By Appointment
In certain circumstances, auto shops offer pickup and delivery services. This is whereby the auto shop picks up the vehicle at your work place or home, works on it, and delivers it after it is fully repaired and serviced. This saves you time and money. The p/u and delivery service can be either free or paid for. At Darrell's Auto Service and Towing, we offer free local pickup and delivery whereby we routinely pick up your car from your home or workplace. We want to make the task of having that car repaired/serviced as stress free as possible. This service is subject to appointment.
The experts at Darrell's Auto Service and Towing can inspect your vehicle and perform services that can help it operate at peak performance and help improve fuel efficiency and overall fuel economy. These inspections and services may include items such as:
Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Darrell's Auto Service and Towing replace your worn out hubs today.
Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Darrell's Auto Service and Towing today.
Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 203-626-9741 or visit Darrell's Auto Service and Towing today.
A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Darrell's Auto Service and Towing in Wallingford, CT 06492 today.
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 Darrell's Auto Service and Towing in Wallingford, CT 06492, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.
Welding is the fabrication and sculptural process that joins metal parts. At Darrell's Auto Service and Towing, we offer various welding services. Simply give us a call at 203-626-9741 or visit our shop in Wallingford, CT.

Pre-purchase inspections involve examining the car's condition to ensure it is worth buying. At Darrell's Auto Service and Towing, we have pre-purchase inspection experts - mechanics who will scrutinize any car, make, and model and allow you to make an informed decision. Pre-purchase inspections will definitely give you peace of mind when you buy your next used car.
A pre-trip check up can make the difference between a safe trip and one that ends in a tragedy. The inspection aims at looking for possible defects and potential mechanical problems that could cause disaster. Before embarking on a trip you should make sure your car is fully inspected for safety. You can rely on the experts at Darrell's Auto Service and Towing.

Trailer Hitches, Wiring and Tires
Although a trailer does not have an engine of its own, it does require some maintenance. The trailer needs wires to move current to the brake lights and other lights at the back. Darrell's Auto Service and Towing has qualified and experienced electricians who will handle your trailer maintenance. Call us at 203-626-9741 to schedule an appointment.
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. Darrell's Auto Service and Towing can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
Brian from Darrell auto service did a wonderful job. They towed my car within the hour and he even told me what the issue was with the car. Very knowledgeable very professional and very nice. I would highly recommend them and will only use them from now on.thanks again Brian for a terrific job...
I want to give a shout-out to Brian who towed my car last night during torrential rain. He was very kind and somehow got me in and out of the tow truck safely. I am almost 72, so this was not an easy feat. He also went beyond the call of duty and put my garbage bin and recyclable bin out near the road for pickup today. I can't thank him enough. And thank you for your service in the Navy.
I've had a number of services done by Darrell over the last few years and can honestly say he is the most trustworthy mechanic I've ever dealt with. Always gives options and always fixes the problem the right way, the first time. Class act and honest prices for services done right, and on time.
I want to say a few words about Darrell's Auto Sales and Services: I moved into town early in the year 1985. I encountered a car problem and my previous mechanic was several towns away. Not knowing anything about Wallingford, I went to the original location of Darrell's on East Center Street fully expecting a hassle to get service, as I needed my car quickly to be able to drive to an out of state company meeting the following day. Darrell scheduled my service early AM the next day, as it was around 5 PM that I drove in, and repaired my car. Yes, the service was good but the integrity, communication, and courtesy was, and still is, equally as good. It is now 2018 and I am still going to Darrell's. That in itself should say something. It is a pleasure dealing with Darrell and his extremely competent head mechanic Leonardo (Leo). I do recommend this operation. They really stand behind their work. Thanks guys.
This past Friday night I needed to speak with a mechanic who had a tow truck. It was roughly 5:30 pm and Darrell answered the phone. He discussed the problem with my husband and within an hour his tow truck driver Juan came to my home and was able to take the car, lacking one wheel; out of my garage and towed safely to his garage. It was roughly 7:30 pm by the time Darrell and his crew took my car in. He then fixed the car at half the price Subaru quoted! He's amazing and I will always be grateful for his timeliness and kindness and especially his generosity.
A good, honest man. The family mechanic for over 25 years. Rather than performing unnecessary work and running up the bill, like some other shops would do, only does what the customer actually needs. There have been several occasions where I have brought my vehicles in thinking the bill would be astronomical and have been surprised by an inexpensive fix. I would walk out thinking he could have charged me more but didn't, so I will be returning when I need more repairs. This is why he has so many loyal and repeat customers. He treats everyone right, and takes care of his customers so they come back. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED!!!
