Gordy’s Garage

Gordy’s Garage is a local small engine repair shop ran by Mike Fuller. The shop is located in McLean and is specialized in repairing all kinds of small engines. Some examples are lawn mowers, chain saws, weed eaters, and other similar items. Essentially anything that has a small engine on it can be repaired by Mike.

Mike has owned the garage for two years after he bought the garage from his nephew. It was originally his brother-in-law’s personal garage, but he deiced to turn it into a repair shop. Mike has been a mechanic since high school and tinkering is something he loves to do, which is partly the reason he decided to start up his own shop. He also was looking for a way to earn some extra money on the side to supplement his retirement. A fun fact about the shop is that it is located on the same property that Mike’s wife and brother-in-law grew up.

While Gordy’s Garage is a standard repair shop, it is a local shop where anyone can take in their small engines that need repairing. Mike stated that when he repairs other’s items “[He] tries to make sure its repaired properly and for the duration, for the long-haul.” He wants his customers to not have to keep coming in to repair the same engine over and over. Mike makes sure the engines are repaired correctly and won’t continue to be an issue.

Gordy’s Garage is a great place to go whenever you need a small engine of any sort repaired. Mike Fuller will do his best to make sure the broken engine is repaired correctly, and he isn’t one to cut corners. If you want to get in contact with Mike for a repair, you can call (217)737-3920. The shop is located at 104 S Elm, McLean, IL 61754.
