    I have been to a few independent companies in the past and quite frankly I have never had a good experience. I have been fed a lot of stories, parts and tyres replaced without my consent.. the list goes on. However NJS solutions are nothing but a honest, decent family run business. You'll struggle to find another independent as honest as NJS Solutions.
