Now for our side: Cierra H ran off the road, filed no police report, and was trying to get insurance to pay for her repairs. We explained everything to her thoroughly and respectfully. Insurance denied her claim. Her car then sat at our shop for 2 weeks and the service writer handling her vehicle was on vacation. When the vehicle was picked up she was billed our standard diagnostic charge. Once the service writer returned he agreed that he had cut her a break to look at it. We have since attempted to contact her and offer a partial refund but haven't heard back. When she initially called on the phone, she was yelling and was so disrespectful to our employee he hung up (for those that know us, this never happens). She then arrived at our shop and acted similarly: confrontational, immature, and frankly, a bit crazy. She was asked to calm down or she must leave. When she did neither we told her we would be calling the police. Only when the owner picked up the phone to dial did she walk out (yelling incomprehensibly). Two customers in the lobby looked at each other and commented “that girl has problems”. Had she approached this misunderstanding civilly, we likely would have resolved this last week.
I brought my car to Archer's first of all, because it is location near my home and right off of 501.. Their location is the only pro. Upon arrival, I was told that to have the car evaluated (lower right arm behind drum was bent and dragging tire) it would be forty dollars and some change, "Ok, sounds good, man. I understand that you have a charge for the evaluation", is what I tell the guy. One to two days later, after multiple problems with customer service and the professionalism of the workers, I have my car towed to Auto Care Specialists on Grissum Parkway. The headache didn't stop then.. the best part about the whole experience was being CHARGED DOUBLE for the evaluation. Even having not performed one actual service on my car, these guys scrapped for as much money out of my pocket as possible. After speaking with the workers and owners about the situation, I still have not received the refund I am owed. The reason being: "This is a business."Looks to me like these guys are in the business of scamming people out of their money behind their backs. Overall, choosing to go to Archer's was a HUGE MISTAKE I will never make again.
