Sandstrom Auto and Truck Repair was founded in 1997 by Andy Sandstrom.  He wanted to do business differently by making the company’s principles of honesty and integrity the basis of all day-to-day operations.  At Sandstrom Repair, you will never be sold any repairs or services that your vehicle doesn't absolutely need...period!  Our friendly hometown shop is a member of the Better Business Bureau, AAA, and the Cannon Falls Chamber of Commerce.
