"Joe and his wife are the best!! It's so hard to find a good mechanic - that most importantly, you can trust. Will definitely keep coming back".
"My biggest regret with Joe, and his business Metcalf's Mechanics, is that more of my semi tractors are not located closer to his shop. We have 50 rigs running throughout the State of Florida. Only 4 are within striking distance of Sarasota. We started a new project during 2019, and thankfully found Joe shortly after. Joe has solved a couple dozen problems, numerous of them unique, and has done a phenomenal job helping us maintain our uptime and therefor deliver service to our customers. As one of Joe's customer's, I can't recommend him and his shop enough. He is a friendly, dedicated, and wicked smart individual. I trust Metcalf's Mechanics and their diagnosis, work, and results".
We drive a 43" Diesel pusher motorhome and found ourselves broke down along side I-75 about 4 miles North of Metcalf's. The problem was an injector line leak and fuel was spraying out of the top of the engine. After calling about 5 places in the area to see about getting service, Joe was the one who I decided to give my business. He was very professional and super helpful and went out of his way to make our issue as easy as possible to deal with - even staying late on a Friday night (the day this happened) to tear down the top of the engine to confirm the issue so that the part could be ordered and in-hand first of the week. I would highly recommend!

Joe Metcalf was born and raised in Western Australia. He comes from generations of farmers. On a farm of 30,000 acres, Joe worked with his parents growing grain and live stock.
In the outback Joe and his father kept the farming equipment and family vehicles maintained and repaired. Their fleet included road trains, combines, tractors, an excavator, harvesters, and much more. Because the closest repair center or parts store was half a days drive, at a very young age, Joe learned to repair engines of all types and sizes and in some cases make his own parts.
10 years ago Joe moved to America and settled down with his wife Lynn in Sarasota. In October of 2006 Metcalf’s Mechanics began. Joe is well known in the community and has built his business and reputation on word of mouth. Honest and trustworthy are two qualities clients use to describe Joe. His work ethics and integrity lead him in all of his business transactions. Joe has always had a passion for fixing vehicle and enjoys solving all types of mechanical issues.
