Front end alignment (Seattle area)

Good afternoon to everyone.

For the past couple of weeks I have been trying to get a front end
alignment done on my GMC and have been striking out. It has been getting
frustrating trying to find a place than can handle a larger vehicle like
a motorhome. I am just getting tired of the "we might be able to
accommodate the vehicle" and then being told that the length is beyond
the capabilities of the sensors.

One of my restrictions is that the alignment is way off and I don't want
to get it on a highway until the alignment is done. So currently the
coach is sitting in North Seattle and I have been looking someone that
in North Seattle or southern Everett that can handle the alignment.

I know that there are others on this list in the Seattle area and I am
hoping that one of them can come back with a couple of places that are
known to be able to handle the frontend alignment.

Thanks.

Most Medium truck shops know of them along with  tire stores.
Call them and see as they are around .

Gerard,  I understand the struggle on finding someone that is willing or able to work on these things.  Brought a question to mind.  We have the
Blacklist of fellow GMC owners that are available to help, is there a similar list of local mechanic shops that can help?  I know that list would be
difficult one to compile, probably why there might not be one.  Anyhow Gerard, good luck and hope you find a shop in your area.

I've included such a list at the bottom.  Just recommendations from GMCers.
