AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! Fraudulent/Scam!!! I needed emergency service on my car since it decided to overheat while in Burlington on vacation. Handy's was able to see me as a walk in, however after having it for over 3 hours, they called to tell me it was ready to be picked up, that there was nothing wrong with it except air in the radiator. When I arrived I was shocked to hear I owed $115 for a service I had no clue they had provided, let alone was never asked permission to give. Normally when your car is at a mechanics they call to explain the problem they found (after extensive search) and then tell you what they need to do to fix it and how much it would cost to fix. Charlie at Handy's never did that. I paid after some protest, and not even 2 blocks later the car started overheating again. Yet Charlie said they were unable to duplicate the problem. I brought it right back for them to look at, and after another couple of hours was told it was the head gasket of my engine, roughly a $1500 fix!!! It was clear to me they had not taken the time from the beginning to go through all of the components of the system to see what was causing the issue. They did work without my approval and charged and insane amount to do so. They quoted me $1500 to do a job 5 other service stations in the area said they would do for $900. I went to Handy's to get my car and declined the service, and immediately took it to Noye's automotive on Pine St. After 20 minutes under the hood I was told there was absolutely NO way it was the head gasket, something everyone else I spoke to said was most likely the case as well. Avoid Handy's at all costs, this place is unprofessional and inexperienced at best. At the worst, they are overpriced and a complete scam. Save your energy and go to Noyes, Kaigles or Gurlington.

Great service!!!!

I have had my car towed numerous times by Handy's and never had any issues. They offer great service in a timely manor and their prices are reasonable. I will continue to use Handys for all of my automotive repairs/needs. Thanks Handy's!!!

Response to Terrible

Dents can happen to anyone's car being towed. Doesn't matter who towes it. At least your car wasn't towed by Rathe's and dropped because it was not properly hooked up !
