Thomas and Tommy are what you want in mechanics. They were recommended by a friend who is a car enthusiast and the recommendation was on target. The took my old Tahoe that seemed to have 100 different problems and turned it into a safe reliable vehicle that I was able to give to my son with complete confidence. It took a while as they troubleshot the different issues but every step of the way their communication was excellent. That says a lot in this day and age.
Picone’s is without a doubt, the BEST mechanic shop in the Wilmington area. My whole family uses them exclusively. They are honest, and stand by their work. Their prices are not cheap, but they are not super expensive, I feel like they charge a fair price for the work they do, and again they stand by their work. Mr. Picone and Thomas have done everything from tires and brakes to replacing a motor for me, and I have never had a problem with their work. The only downside is they are constantly busy, so it may take a little longer than other shops for your repair to be done. But there is a reason for that. They are the best. Point blank period.
Great people and prices very knowledgeable too.
Awesome folks work here and do great work!!!
Awesome people to deal with and extremely knowledgeable. They literally saved us thousands. I won’t go anywhere else. Thank you guys for keeping me on the road.
Got my truck in for an oil change very quick, always friendly.

Tommy is a great guy. If you need tires he will get them for you the next day at a great price. I highly recommend this place. I’ve bought the last 5 sets of tires for both mine and my wife’s cars here and couldn’t be happier.
Very happy. They were fast and very reasonable to deal with. Explained everything and even checked other things to make sure they were okay.
The Picone’s are knowledgeable and fair. That’s a tough find! Love the fact that they worked with my schedule and were incredibly helpful. Definitely plan to return there for any future needs.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! I had a job in Greenville and my car had a flat. They were the only ones open at 7:45am on Castle Hayne Rd. and they fixed my tire in 10 minutes!! Owner Thomas Picone was there and made sure it was done quickly so I could be on my way. Very reasonable price- definitely would go back! Great service!
Have brought my truck to Thomas the last two years. Does great work and very pleasant. Highly recommend.
Great service and better people if your looking for honest and great work this is your place no doubt about it.
Tommy is a stand up guy. Really gave me a great price and did a fantastic job on a timing belt replacement on my Acura TL. He worked with my schedule to ensure that I was able to drop my car off after hours and ensured that it was ready by the end of the next day. Great bunch of guys to do business with. Highly recommended.
Like Thomas, good mechanic and friend.
This is the only place in Wilmington I go for tires. The prices are way better than the competition and the owner and mechanics are very friendly. I highly recommend them and make the extra drive just to go there. I live near UNCW so there are closer options, but these guys rock!
The owner thomas picone is a great guy, has very fair prices, and its an awesome all around place to go.
I highly recommend this place. Years ago, when I had muffler problems with my older car, Tommy suggested I go somewhere else that would be less expensive. I’ve been his customer ever since.
Amazing group of guys who went out of their way twice to get me back on the road!!!
My Jeep YJ was having issues finding gears. Took it to Picone on Friday morning, and they had it diagnosed (master cylinder was bad) and fixed within 4 hours. Their service is so outstanding they they delivered my Jeep to my house that is 40 miles away. Highly recommend Picone Automotive.
I had a nagging vibration and noise in my Nissan Frontier pickup truck at highway speeds, and had taken it into two other garages, that could not diagnose the problem. Tommy inspected it, and identified the problem, and had it fixed at a very reasonable price, all in one morning. He replaced the universal joints on the front axle, and it runs smooth as silk at highway speeds.
For about a year now my wife and I have been taking my vehicles to Tommy for regular service work (inspections, oil changes, a/c recharge, tire repair, shocks, etc) and I enjoy the personal and professional service that they provide.
I bought a new set of tires for my son’s car at Picone Automotive. The prices were very competitive and the service was fast and friendly.
Good place for car repairs and State Inspection.
Good work by fair and friendly staff.
Great work at a great price! I have been using Picone for years, the quality of work is great and they have never let me down!
Thanks for the last minute oil change. Fast courteous service. ALWAYS!
Save yourself the trouble and just go here. Fair prices and always tell it to you straight.
Great service. Accurate Service, Quick service. What else can you ask for. Don’t wish to have any more vehicle issues but if I do I know where I will be taking my vehicles from now on. Highly recommend them.
Picones is the best! Fair, Honest, dependable and priced right. They are the only ones I trust to service the fleet of 14 diesel trucks that I manage and the only people other than myself who I have ever allowed or trusted to work on my own vehicles.
Fast, friendly, affordable service.
Great friendly staff. Got the tires I wanted and handled the alignment and mounting quickly. Best price, good quality work!
A down home feel, not fancy but they do the right job every time. Prices are cheaper because they dont have a fancy store overhead. Tom will take care of you right!
