My car needed some work recently and another shop in Burlington quoted $1500 in repairs to fix it up. I couldn't afford that so, after hearing about him from a friend, I brought it to Pierre and he worked with me to get the cost of repairs down to $400!!!!!! Long story short, I saved $1,100 by going with Pierre and he did a great job. I would recommend him to anyone.

A quick search of the BBB site proves that to be a lie as well. They are not trustworthy, and will rob you blind at the first opportunity.

The towing service was quick, polite and efficient. Unfortunately, he took me to a crooked shop. I was told my car required an "engine-out clutch replacement." Three days and over $1000 later, my car was "fixed." The engine had not been removed, the clutch had not been replaced, but the hydraulic line I pointed them too had. I was lied to about the problem, the solution, and what labor had been performed. I was charged for parts that were never replaced, and labor that was never performed. How do I know this? Because the mechanic who installed the clutch 22,000 miles earlier confirmed that the same parts he installed were still on it, and the engine showed absolutely no signs of having been removed. Handy's is run by a conman and fraudster of the lowest variety.
