In 09/2007 Handy Andy's rented an unmaintained Bobcat to my ex-husband. They were even so helpful as to deliver the equipment to his front door. This piece of equipment should never have been rented to the public since none of the safetly devices were working properly which resulted in his DEATH. \n\nIf that isn't bad enough, Handy Andy's claimed no responsiblity in the matter and stated they were self insured with little to no money. I guess you can't get blood out of a turnip. How is it that the state allows a company of this nature to run a business without a bond or proof of proper insurance coverage?! \n\nNeedless to say, they are still in business, renting equipment that is unmaintained no double, and I am quite sure they don't have the insurance to cover the loss of a life. I guess some companies just don't care.\n\nIf you value your life, I certainly would not be renting anything from this company...just ask our son.

I have been taking abuse from Handy Andy for years. Why you ask? Because they are you only place in North \nSeattle that has U-haul concrete. They have yelled at me like i was a private in boot camp. Just because I didn't understand their demands. Their equipment is poorly maintained and unsafe. The last straw was when they shorted me on a load of concrete and then called me a liar when I complained. I'll never go back. I'll mix concrete by hand from now on.

I rented a pressure washer from Handy Andy's and burned myself very badly on a rusty and fully exposed box at about 18"" height. When I returned the equipment, I was given a bad attitude about it by three members of their staff simultaneously, telling me that I should have known better, and I wouldn't touch a hot stove, would I? The equipment was EXTREMELY dangerous, and they not only did they not stand behind it, they tried to make me feel stupid for not knowing not to touch it. (No warning on the rusty box of course).\n\nWalking into the place you can see how poorly maintained it is, it looks like a junk shop (which it sort of is), and don't make the mistake of thinking it's just a quaint mom & pop. These people should be SHUT DOWN.\n\nBy the way, the prices are exactly the same as Home Depot, 6 blocks north on Aurora, and Aurora Rentals, on 88th & Aurora. PLEASE go there instead!
