When our automatic garage door was broken, we called Barretts and they came the next business day. The plastic gears inside the motors were stripped so the motor would just keep on running while the door wouldn't open or close. They diagnosed the problem right away and replaced the plastic gears within a 1/2 hour. They did a very good job and also check to make sure everything else is running properly and adjusted the chain so it shut properly. I would recommend them if you have any problems with your garage door opener as they also give free estimates.
When a friend was getting married and I was one of the groomsman, he used Gentlemen's Quarters. It was very easy as a week before the wedding I had to get measured and fitted and pay for the rental. A couple of days before the wedding i go in for another fitting to make sure everything is right. The tuxes were comfortable and they were clean and pressed very well. We had to drop off the tux the next day which was alittle hassle but that was their policy. Overall it was a fast and easy rental.
Whenever I need a ride to the airport i use Blue Taxi. They are always on time and help with the luggage. The fleet of vehicles are fairly new and the interior is usually very clean. The rates are very good also and I would also reserve for pick up. I usually call 24 hours before my flight arrives and they are always there on time. The drivers are usually very friendly and can strick up a conversation. They always obey the speed limit and know their way around the area.
When building our new home, we decided to have an in ground sprinkler system. We called on many sprinkler companies and Central lawn Sprinklers was the least expensive during that time. They were very profressional and gave us a quote. These systems aren't cheap but we went ahead with it because it would save us time in watering the lawn. It took approximately 1 day to lay all the sprinklers before the sod was put in place. We also had a timer to control the hours we wanted the sprinklers to go on and off. Give them a call for a quote.
I had an opportunity to take a few courses at Wheaton College and they are a top knotch christian college. Their campus is beautiful with historic building that are preserved very well. They also have the Billy Graham Center in which Billy Graham studied. Their dorms are old but still very clean. The area is very quiet and a family oriented town. Their sports facility is good for a small college. The courses were very good and in depth to the subject.
When purchasing our new home we needed to find a chandalier for our foyer. We went to Littman Bros and they have a large selection of chandeliers, light fixtures and more light fixtures. They have all types from hanging to standing to wall mounted. we were able to negotiate alittle and found a crystal hanging chandelier for our foyer. We went to several lighting stores and Littman has probably the most inventory and brands.
I love pastries and Turanos is one of the better pastries in the area. They mostly specialize in Italian cakes and pasteries and all are delicious. They have a glass display and a number system as sometimes they can become really busy. They have anything from conolis to custom cakes made with fresh ingredience. I would go to Turanos almost every Saturday morning. They have small parking in the front but more in the back. Their staff is also very friendly!
Deerfield bakery is your higher end bakery. Because they use the best ingredience, it is more expensive then your average bakery shops in the area. They have a entire selection of cakes that you can order and they have fresh breads and cookies everyday. Because my new job is in the area, I stop by Deerfield Bakery almost every morning for a pastery on the go with coffee. You won't be disappointed with Deerfield bakery.
Jarosch is by far one of the best bakery in town. They've been in business for over 45 years and no wonder why they are still in business. What is the best is their cakes or cookies are never too sweet and they use fresh ingredients. My friend who got married used Jarosch for their wedding cake and it turned out beautiful. When I use to work in the area, I would stop by and pick up their daily cookies (yellow smiley faces) and they hit the spot with a cup of coffee.
When my Audi ran into problems with a leaking oil gasket, I went to Suburban Auto Repair in Schaumburg. They diagnose the problem right away and showed me the leaking gasking. Because you have to take the entire top end off to repair the gasket, it would take a couple of days that is time intensive. They quoted me a good price compared to the dealer so I had them do the repair. After 2 years, there is no oil leak and so far the repair has been a good job.
