About Us

Harry’s On Rand was established in the early 1960’s by Harry Mergenthaler Sr when he decided to turn his hobby of fixing cars into a business. The business was a small full service gas station with auto repairs done in the garages. It was an old fashioned family business. Harry, his 3 sons and his daughter ran the business as a real neighborhood type of gas station and auto repair that all the locals would come to.

In 1978, Harry passed away. His son Ken, who had worked with his father since the age of 16, took over the business. Ken and his wife Maria have been running the shop ever since. The same family values of honesty and integrity are still used today by Ken and his technicians.

Ken always stays on the cutting edge of auto repair technology by attending many seminars and classes throughout the year. He also subscribes to ALLDATA information service and NAPAFIX technical troubleshooting websites to keep up with the latest information regarding your specific vehicle make and model.

Ken is a GODSEND. Once you meet him you will already be able to tell that his is a Great and HONEST mechanic. A combination that is rare in my experience... . My experience with ken was so good that will I will travel from Chicago to his garage to get my car service.

It's nice to know business like Harry's still exist. Ken did wonderful brake work on my car, and I couldn't be happier. His prices were way better than the dealer, and he didn't try to up-sell me on work that didn't need to be done. I'll be bringing my car to Ken from now on.
