Sandpoint Realty 'Friday Flag' this week shows off one of the long time original businesses of Sandpoint IdahoMelody Muffler.

Sandpoint Realty Friday Flag

My first time stepping into Melody Muffler I was questioning whether my mechanic had sent there in earnest, or was just trying to get me out of his shop so he did not need deal with the muffler problem.  Screws, bolts, in small boxes, unlabeled, in no apparent order.  Scrap metal everywhere, leaning up against walls.  


Yet after looking at my vehicle Mike walked directly inside, to a certain wall, pulled out a certain flange, from one of those unlabeled boxes, looked at it closely and set it on a semi cluttered work bench.  Told me he would give me a call when done.  True to his word in a couple of hours he called explaining the salt had rusted out the stock piece and it was no longer readily available but he was able to do the necessary welding to make the repair.  The cost was jaw dropping low.  For a decade now I do not hesitate in leaving my vehicle there for muffler repairs nor has anyone that I sent there ever complained. 


Thank you Melody Muffler of Sandpoint Idaho for not only your hard work, but proudly flying our 'Stars and Stripes'.

Good morning Mark. The old time mechanic who knows how to improvise is disappearing as are those who proudly display the flag. Kudos to Melody Muffler! Enjoy your day.

Good Moring Mark,  Sometimes the shops like that know how to fix things from their experience and do not charge much and look, you sent him business.

I wish there were more companies like Melody Muffler around.    You did a great job of describing the Mike.    He sounds like he knows his business and exactly where he keeps things.   

I hope that you have a great weekend.

Hi Mark- businesses like Melody Muffler are priceless!!!  Larry avoids taking our cars into a shop or the dealership unless he absolutely has to...not because of the cost but a trust factor.  I also love the flag!!!

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS .  As many times the case, I ended up with rewards, from the posts, that were far what I could have hoped for much less imagined.  Thank you always saying hello.  Mark

There is nothing that makes me shakier in the knees than to need my car to be worked on.  I'm glad you found good service at Melody Muffler.

Very nice  patriotic way to get the word out on this small business Mark. It doesn't have to be a brand name company or pretty showroom to be good and reliable!
