Lawrence Wilson is one of Sandy Lane’s longest standing customers. He had his first Volvo serviced in 1970, and is currently driving an XC90, Volvo number seven.
Lawrence was a young university student at age 16, destined to leave an imprint on Alberta’s health care community. He was in the army for a time, before dedicating his time to health care research and education. As Commissioner of hospitals in Edmonton, he partook in developing new facilities, services and programs to meet public needs in the hospital sector, and was Director of the first palliative care council in Alberta.
“There is instant trust; the technicians listen to the customers and are wired to problem solve. Sandy Lane feels like a loyal family member, and that is meaningful.”
“This was some time ago, but I had a diesel, and upon returning to the shop after taking the car to a specialized mechanic, John took it for a test run and the engine blew. Sandy Lane gave me a call, explained the situation, arranged for a car, and delivered me the fixed vehicle a few days later without a bill.”

“The people. Edmonton is full of vitality. I have great friends here, and I am fortunate to be surrounded by people I enjoy and admire. They are willing to be direct, but kind, and try things they haven’t tried before.“
To Lawrence & Ann, thank you for all your years of support at Sandy Lane and all the great conversation. Enjoy your dinner at VIVO Ristorante!
