Robert, Nikki, Eferim, Maureen. I am sorry I have not done a Yelp recommendation as I am recovering slowly from Viral Pneumonia and feel lousy.!!! I love Ayers Repairs, I shout my loving you to everyone. I will get to Yelp even before I do Christmas Cards...I HATE being late...Please bear with me.....
Ayers premium service and competent technicians come at a price. I certainly would recommend Ayers to someone with a valuable car that should get expert service. Efrain knows his business and is a pleasure to visit.
I was 100% pleased with the service I received. The people at Ayers were friendly, professional, accommodating and thorough. My car arrived with several problems and left feeling brand new.
Professional, great service, trustworthy.
Air conditioning and heating didn't work after I got it back.
Just recommended to a friend. You do a good job.
I like the customer service.
They contacted me through the Unity Shop, it's a charity organization they offered to do some work in my car. I am a single mother to a 3 year old and at the time (11/07/15) I was headed into the hospital for a very major Hysterectomy I had explained to them my car was all over the road that the ball joints were bad the alignment was off. They kept my car for nearly 2 weeks when my friend went to pick it up she went because I was in the hospital for 9 days and couldn't walk upon release . They did nothing but change the oil. My oil was fine it had been changed 8 weeks prior. They let me to be leave they would at least fix one of the things wrong with my car. They did nothing but give me excuses and put me off . Very evil thing to do to a very sick single mother.....
They quoted me and serviced the same day.
Took me right in the day I needed help. Job done by end of work day and they cleaned out my car!! Very personable and caring.
Quality work, efficient and friendly.
I believe they are honest. They wash my car. Someone picks me up and takes me home.
Customer service was good. Staff is very friendly.
The service repaired the car and it is driving great. Everyone is friendly and knowledgeable. Robert Ayers is especially professional.
Great service and follow up.
They offer Great Service, good customer relations, quality parts, timely repairs.
They are ALWAYS exactly as promised. Very careful. Extremely competent and totally professional. Like going to a dealer but not being overcharged or 'worked' for unneeded repairs!
By far the most professional, courteous, and honest auto repair shop I have ever encountered. As a customer, you never feel as though you are being taken advantage of, and everyone there is extremely friendly, knows your name, etc.
The Ayers are wonderful people and they show that every time we are in the shop. They greet you offer you coffee, and really try to make you feel comfortable. You just know you will go back when there is another problem with your car.
Work was well done. Service personnel friendly. Service facility located in a good location for me.
My car has never run better then after taking it to Ayers.
They are very qualified.
Very Friendly and super service!
The guy at the desk was kind of moody.
I think they do really good work there - honest work at an honest price.
They are very good and I would continue to use them.
I personally thought they were awesome because they took care of everything. They sent me a report of everything that needed to be done on my car. They sent me a postcard in the mail. They always remember who I am when I call over there.
I never got call backs when they had my car. I don't think I would go back again.
They're just very courteous and explain the problems very clearly that your car may be having, in laymen's terms which I appreciate.
I wouldn't recommend. They seemed dishonest - just unfair repairs. Air conditioner worked for two weeks after the repair. The guy was very evasive, very intrusive, and disrespectful.
A couple times they have told me I needed costly repairs and I haven't been able to do them at the time because of the cost and then when I return to have something done it is no longer a problem. They said something needed to be replaced as soon as possible and then I take the car back and all of the sudden there's no problem with that particular item. So that was confusing.
It's an upper scale shop and you pay for your quality. Prices may be higher but so is the quality.
- High quality repair
- Guaranteed fair prices
- Real, verified reviews
- Current expert training
- Warranty on repairs
- Great customer service
