They are very prompt and they always get the job done on time, and it is very close by so it is convenient.

Verified CustomerSeptember 29, 2015

They care about the customer more than the sale. They are pleasant to work with and they have high quality service reps.

Verified CustomerSeptember 29, 2015

I like the quality of work, you don't have to worry about going back for any mess-ups, like other places. The owner is a very nice person and all of the co-workers are excellent too.

Perfect service, honest, quality repairs.

Verified CustomerSeptember 18, 2015

They helped me right away, I was highly satisfied with what they did, I to replace a tire, and it was an odd size and they went out of their way.

September 18, 2015

The owner is a very nice person, they are there when I need them. The brakes did not work right so I have to return them and they said they would replace the pads and the rotor.

Verified CustomerSeptember 17, 2015

They are reliable, they get it done, and it's never a surprise on how much it is.

Verified CustomerSeptember 14, 2015

Although I like Birch Tire, I wasn't totally satisfied at my last visit. I was told my tires would soon need to be replaced but was not told or shown that they are worn badly on the inside tread and that a wheel alignment may be in order. I was told this at Costco where I when I went for a free tire rotation.

DANGEROUS BRAKES: I have been a customer of Birch Tire & Auto for over 10 years and I will never return. My vehicle was brought in for a simple tire change. Upon pick-up, there was a loud squealing noise coming from the driver-side wheels... this would have been very apparent to Birch as they moved my car from the bay to the parking lot. The other issue was all four rims were scratched all the way around from whatever machine they used to put the tires on... these were perfect rims purchased 8 months ago. THE BIGGEST ISSUE was the fact that they said nothing about my brakes (which were in DANGEROUSLY poor condition) when they reviewed my bill... they did however try to sell me a sensor which I do not need. My car is at another shop today (about 3 weeks later) and this mechanic states "whoever looked at your car last was a complete idiot". I could have gotten into a serious accident or gotten stuck with seized brakes on the side of the freeway. NEVER will I take any car to Birch again!
