The secret to success at The Go to Guys is no secret at all!
Our business is built on the solid foundation of Honesty, Reliability & Affordability.
The Go to Guys is a small automotive repair shop located in Crystal Lake, Illinois. The family-owned and operated business has been in business for eight years, and has been successful from day one. Brian, our owner, has been making people happy by fixing their vehicles right the first time, for over forty years.

We care about you and your car, and we’ll treat it like it’s one of our own!
I have been a customer of Brian's for over 30 years.I took my car to his shop in Skokie and followed him to Crystal Lake. He has an old school dedication to fixing cars, and is current on all the latest technology needed. He always takes the time to diagnose the problem, versus what most repair shops do who just keep putting parts on your vehicle, hoping to solve your problem. A one man shop has superior quality control and it is great to get your car fixed right the first time.

Thank you for keeping my various vehicles on the road.

Customer–Jim B.
