Went in to get an estimate for work. Price quoted was only a few dollars more for parts as what I would have purchased online. Final price was better than expected, so very please with work and everyone in the shop.

Patrick is always respectful and very professional. I feel that I can trust his recommendations.

by - Verified Customer February 23, 2017

Two things: first, I always expect my vehicles to be serviced completely by having the staff make recommendations as needed. You seem to to well in this area. Second, office area could have a better appearance and perhaps waiting/sitting area for customers.

by - Verified Customer February 09, 2017

Patrick & Mike are great. They are extremely honest. They both tell me when they don't know what the problem is, and they'll spend plenty of time researching all the symptoms, before they decide to spend your money.

The delay in completion was not the shop's fault. No one explained the modificationss to my truck, but it was a pretty straight forward mod.

by - Verified Customer November 20, 2016

We had an excellent experience at Tinkertoy Automotive. The staff and mechanics are excellent. The work performed was done properly, and the prices were extremely fair. I always look for local businesses instead of dealing with large, national chains. These folks are great.

by - Verified Customer November 16, 2016

I highly rate and recommend Tinkertoy Automotive, particularly to women. The Tinkertoy team is not only composed of experts in the field of auto mechanics but also provide excellent customer service with high degree of respect and consideration, financial consideration, that is. Tinkertoy is a hidden jewel, no doubt.

by - Verified Customer November 15, 2016

Staff was professional, courteous and explained everything in detail when provided with estimate. After the car (2004 Mercedes C-class) was fixed, the follow-up was very effective and I never felt pressured to pay for additional items.
