Thank You Lawrence!

Years ago someone told me “an entrepreneur is someone who’s willing to work 80+ hours a week so they don’t have to work 40 for someone else”. It makes me laugh every time I think of that as I’ve learned first hand how true that statement is. This opportunity for me to raise a family, grow a business, provide stable employment for our team while doing what I love has been a dream come true.

I am very thankful to each of you who have allowed us to earn your trust and loyal patronage. As a team, we are excited to continue doing the best job we can for you.

Our Customers Say

My wife and I drove to Lawrence to see our daughter. We discovered she had a tire that needed replacing. Walmart couldn’t do it so late in the day, so I went to Free State Auto Works.

They didn’t have the tire but called around until they found someone who did. I got my daughter a good tire at a reasonable price.

Terry (the Service Manager) went out of his way when he wasn’t going to make a cent on it. Thank you.

These guys are awesome. They are kinda hard to find, but well worth the search. The owner has a lot of experience with his hands but is very good with people which is exceptionally rare. If you looking for a reasonable place to get a car fixed in Lawrence, there you must go.

I was recommended Free State Autoworks a few years ago, and have been using them ever since for all my family’s car repair needs. I really appreciate the quick service, honest feedback, and let’s be honest – Terry’s a great guy!
Marshall Schmidt
Terry (Service Manager) is an awesome guy, great to work with. He goes out of his way to actually teach you something about your vehicle and how it works, specifically what they’re doing to it. Excellent, fair pricing and great communication. I’ve had a number of things done there over multiple years and on multiple cars. Use these guys with confidence!

I’ve been taking both of my cars to Free State Auto for over a year and I’ve consistently had positive experiences. I have found them to be honest and very courteous. From oil changes to complicated repairs this in the only shop I trust.
