They replaced my air conditioner and it's still working and running great. My fuel pump went out two weeks later and had to get it replaced.

They do a very good job. They are very good at what they do. They are dependable, they do excellent work. We had a problem and they were closed and they came out and fixed it on their day off. That's how good they are.

Verified CustomerAugust 09, 2013

They charge one price and then they charge another price, and I figure they want to overcharge me.

August 09, 2013

They got the job done. We had a question mark because of a sound coming from the car. I don't know how proactive they are and I don't know if we had a greater issues at that point. There might not be any issues, but what we did go in for they fixed. They are friendly and do a nice job. Nice people, and prices are reasonable.
