Trailer breakdown leads to small town hospitality

Langley couple pleased with the service shown at Agassiz shops

I would like to recognize two members of your business community.

My wife and I were taking a short visit near your community on the July long weekend. Friday June 28 we had a breakdown with our travel trailer. As this is not our home town, we were concerned if we could get this problem rectified and be able to continue on with our camping trip with some friends up at Wood lake.

After calling BCAA who recommended Modern Tire and Towing, we were able to get our trailer to their shop that day.

Being a long weekend, we expected our trailer would not be fixed until Tuesday. The people at this place took exceptional care of us. My wife and I had to run to Abbotsford for the parts but that was a small part of what had to be done.

They treated as family by offering us their back lot to stay in overnight.

The next morning my wife and I got up and went for breakfast.

We went to a beautiful place called the Oasis. Great food great service and great people. We will be back.

When we got back to Modern at 9:30 Saturday morning, our trailer was fixed.

Now on a July long weekend, and being a Saturday, I did not expect to get back on the road so quickly. Their service was beyond what I would have expected but did truly appreciate.

My wife and I would like to thank Modern Tire and Towing for the exceptional service. We are telling everybody about our experience and how much help they gave us.

And don’t forget the Oasis for some food. They have a great eggs benny.
