Throughout David’s career as a technician, he has made lots of memories and found many rewarding moments. One moment in particular he recalled was when a customer went out of their way to show their appreciation for David’s work. “I worked on a customer’s car once, and they came to me to tell me that they had the best experience,” recalled David. “They told me they felt like they were at home and that my work was much appreciated.
