I recently took my truck to this mechanic shop for a simple window repair, little did I know I was going to be dealt with in such a dishonest way. Granted the gentleman disclosed after the fact that it was common to charge people more for pae
rts than the actual cost.61.99 actual price,104.00 price charged to me.they also charged me 62.00 in labor.the only work done was to replace a window switch which was already uncovered.Iasked what the charge would have been if I had bought the switch,his answer was 62.00 so my question is why I was overcharged almost double.If this is a common practice with all mechanic shops then it is very wrong and people need to be made aware and ask questions before any work is done.I did some research before posting this and have found oters who have been done the same way.The people at this shop will know exactly who I am.

most people will ask up front what the charge will be, if you didnt you have no right to complain, this world is turning into a bunch of complainers and bitchers

This is the only place I take my vehicles to get work done! They have NEVER treated me in a wrong manner.
How were you "over charged almost double"? They charged you for labor that you admit would be the price if you took the part in. However, you did not take the part in obviuosly so you got charged for the part. I do not see the problem.
I really think people need to realize that people have to run their business. Salaries, electric, water, ect., don't pay themselves! All businesses have to make money. Here is an idea.... Instead of complaining how about you were "over charged" you should open up a business and see what it's like. Then maybe you would see that most business owners, honest hard working ones such as West Main Auto, are not out to rip people off. Another idea for you... Why not fix it yourself! You have made it obvious that you don't want to pay somebody to do it for you so why not go talk to the part store and talk them into giving you the part for free, then take it home and fix the problem?
I understand that the economy sucks right now for everybody. But if you receive a service then you have to pay for it.

I never have had a problem with Atkinson at all. Never been over charged or anything either. Haven't went to West Main Auto. As with any business they are there to make money. Sorry you all feel the way you do my step dad worked on all of our vehicles til he passed away in 2007 we had to find someone else and Tim Atkinson was the guy. We had went somewhere else but don't remember where but didn't like thee service. You jus have to find someone you like. There are many mechanics in the area.
Great Service

Steve is a great guy...... Whose business is it IF he is or isn't gay. Are you disgruntled? Did he break your heart? Grow up, you've shown your age because you said he was your boyfriend before, so you must be in your 40s.

I know for a fact that Stacey is only saying those things because Steve dumped her ass. I personally know everyone that works there and they would never do anybody wrong. If you really need your vechicle worked on but don't have that much cash, Dave will work with you. Plus, if all of that is really going on at West Main, how in the hell have they been in business so long. FYI: THEY HAVE NEVER DRANK ON THE JOB IN THE PAST, THEY DO NOT DO IT NOW, AND THEY WON'T BE DOING IN THE FUTURE!!!!!!!!!!

I have had lots of work done on my car, but this past year I have had a couple bad experiences.. I do know that they don't charge what the price is at the store cause they have to give a warranty on it.. that covers them in case something is wrong with the part cause then they have to do the labor free.. it just helps cut down on their expenses.. but I had a friend who kept telling me it wasn't what they were saying was wrong and they were trying to charge me nearly 1200 bucks to fix and it ended up only being 200 since i made them fix what my friend said it was.. then they apologized.. I think they are all nice and respectful for the most part but I wont be going there anymore.. Adkinsons has my business..
