I've always made it a rule to judge which auto mechanic to bring my car to, because you never know what they have in store for you, especially if they are a dishonest business! STAY AWAY from this crowd! I was told by the head-cheese that he would call me to give me a price before he started working on my vehicle. That's the way I like it I told him, but never received that phone call from him, and the Invoice was almost 500 - for a simple rear brake job? I paid it, wanting to get back to more important things, but then a year later the brakes had frozen and the emergency brake handle/cable broke or disengaged? I called him to have my car towed, they completely ignored my request for no reason! They did say they would be over, but never ever called or showed-up!? TWICE? Stay away from this CLOWN! You'll be doing your vehicle a favour!


There was this nice advertisement in the newspaper and pictures of a what I thought were high quality shoes. I ordered a pair of Deck shoes, only to find out once I received them that they were different from the photos? The gold coloured metal rings where the shoe laces run through were all worn/rust looking! The colour of the leather was darker then the photo I'd seen! I then called and told the manager my problem with the product. He then told me to ship the shoes back to Samuel Windsor for repair? And I had to pay for shipping and insurance? That is NOT good business practices! I asked for brand new shoes instead, and he told me-Sorry! Sold the last pair. So I shipped the shoes back, but then received them 3 weeks later only to find that they were literally covered in cheap dark brown shoe polish! Yes, even the gold rings! Bottom line folks, stay away from this very low quality minded individual! He is NO BUSINESS MAN! And neither is Samuel Windsor Shoes!


Ever notice how rude people who work in large well known companies can react to good customers seeking good service and honest answers? Micks is always advertising on how they take great pride on treating their customers with the utmost respect and provide its very best in service! That may be true in some cases, but not all! You'll always find a few bad apples in every barrel as I have... Where I come from, the customer is always right. In Ireland, its just the opposite. The rude employee tries to make it look like its all your fault and not theirs for the screw-up! Plain and simple, its called Bad Business Practices! Be careful on what you order on Micks Garage! Check and double check their website while ordering product(s)
If they have a special going on- then record, file, take a pic of the discount voucher on the screen for your records! When you check-out make sure you have received your discount imediatley! If not, cancel your order! Good luck shopping...


Needed a very simple task done for my car. I had brought in to Advance Pitstop on Ennis Rd. Limerick Ireland 2 new tyres to have mounted onto my new alloys from the old alloys. No need for them to take-off from the car etc, because everything was in the boot. Very simple 15 min. Job, but oh no! Manager must have thought that there is no money to be made here for such a simple request? So he thought he'd pull a fast one on me! He then told me that the 2 tyres were no good and worn? He did not want to be responsible for installing this tyres because of that. I thought to myself... do I have the letters STUPID stamped on my forehead? How the hell did he become manager anyway? I've been around the block a few times and know a con when I see it ;) He just wanted me to buy the store tyres to make more money! I'm very glad I never let them touch my car! They would've found something wrong with it too! Stay away from THIS STORE! Its always empty anyway! No cars in the garages! People are onto him/them! Hope they run them out of town!


UnlockRiver has not done a thing for me, except take my money.The Unlock code they gave me was bogus... REFUND? Forget it! It pays to go to a shop and have them unlock your phone instead. Don't waste your hard earned money on these fools! Stay away from U/R.

Absolute joke of a company and pure cowardice. Hide behind emails so they can say no, no and no....
