From the Owner, Wendell Turner

My name is Wendell Turner and I'm the proud owner of Turners Garage and Transmission. I've been in business since 1979 and I'm proud to provide quality service to all of my customers. I’ve had the pleasure of working on all models of vehicles from hybrids to European, Japanese, and American cars. 
In addition to running my business, I'm also a contributor to Sumter Living magazine, where I write articles about car maintenance, repairs, and all things automotive. I'm also an active member of Automotive Technology Advisory Board for Central Carolina Technical College and Sumter School District Career Center, where I'm dedicated to ensuring the best education and career opportunities for others. When I'm not working, I love spending time with my three grandchildren and riding on my 4-wheelers. I'm also an avid deep-sea fisherman and I enjoy the thrill of the open water. Overall, I'm passionate about helping others, working on cars, and spending time with my family and friends.
