Generator mechanic recommendations needed - STT

My usual generator mechanic is having some health issues.
He usually comes in May to change oil, change filters,check system, do an annual maintenance check on my diesel generator prior to hurricane season. He's also been prompt to respond to any problems thruout the year, if needed.

Any recommendations?

The property management company that I work for uses Import Supply for a few of their homes on STT. Import Supply

They originally took care of the generator prior to my purchase of this property.
When I called them to continue and set up a maintenance program, they told me I would need a monthly maintenance plan and when I disputed the necessity of such as well as the high cost, I was told they were too busy to accommodate me if I wasn't going to pay them monthly and I should find someone else. I did.

Plus one of their guys almost caused a serious accident while he was yakking away on his cell phone and blowing thru a stop sign on a dangerous corner, in the middle of the road, causing me to have to literally climb up the hillside of the road to avoid him hitting me while he drove merrily on. When I called them to complain about the driver and gave the woman a description of the man driving, she laughed and said all their drivers looked the same. Not particularly a fan of Import Supply.

Thanks but I can possibly avoid using them, I will.

Did you try Antilles Power?
I can not recommend plan B. They do not have their act together.

Thanks will try them and continue to ask around.
It's hard to have someone really good and reasonably priced, that is responsive to your needs and all of a sudden have to look for another to fill his shoes.

Oh wow. That certainly isn't a wonderful experience. I know it's tough finding good people for lots of things. And it seems that finding someone good who is licensed, bonded, insured, is even tougher. If you have a good experience with someone new, let us know about it.
