These guys are awesome! I was turned away from every other small engine shop in Reno/Sparks due to the type of engines I had. I need my engines for work so when these guys found out my situation they not only drove from carson city to sparks, they went to Napa and picked up spark plugs form me. Best customer service ever! Customer for life! Thanks guys. Read more

Greg & James are a great father/son team who provide the BEST in customer service! They just fixed our 25 year old snowblower that had never had a full service before. They picked it up & dropped it off (all part of the price) and it’s running as if it’s brand new. Thanks guys for being so customer-service focused! Read more

Thank You!

I asked Greg’s Small Engine Power Equipment Service & Repair to look at and repair three different Small Engine Machines – a Snow Blower, Rototiller & a Pressure Washer. They were honest and straight forward about needed potential repairs. They said what they were going to do and followed through. The best two things in their Service was not to repair a machine that was not worth repairing and Picking Up and Delivering the Power Equipment. Their Service saved me Money & Time. I certainly would recommend them for your Small Engine Power Equipment Needs. Read more

“My snow-blower broke down during our heavy Winter this year.  I was distraught and had to find someone to help me get my snow-blower working again.  I found gregsmallengine.com and talked to the owner, Greg.  He called me and let me know what was done to my machine to get it up and running again.  The cost was very reasonable and I am very happy to say it was delivered back to my house.

I am one happy customer and he is a super nice person!” Read more

Greg and son run a great business. They provided a a very good ball park estimate when I first called. They were very helpful and honest in helping determine whether the repair would be worth it. They did a great job in repairing the mower for a reasonable cost. I highly recommend them. Read more
