First, if I could rate Hub 6 stars, i would! I have never met a more courteous, professional, prompt, friendly and reliable company in my life! High end plumbing issues? Hub handled mine flawlessly and I'm sure they'll do the same for you. I don't know anything about plumbing and when I had a major issue, John and his team came through for me and put my mind at ease. His prices are so reasonable, i gladly would have even paid more, just for the peace of mind he gave me. You'd be foolish not to call Hub FIRST with your plumbing issues! Thanks again for being a lifesaver!

My condenser kicked out the first day it got hot. Mike Palmer came over, and I guess they were a bit slow, but good for me!

The condenser was ordered as Mike started disconnecting the old one, and was there in, I'm going to say, 45

Pros: friendly, helpful, clean, professional

Not only were these guys courteous and professional, they were on time, and well within what I had anticipated would be the price of the job.

They do not quote pricing over the phone which is annoying, but I do understand the logic behind it. They seem not to want to paint themselves into corners with their pricing and I get it.

Overall, highly recommended. They're a nice break from the typical "pros" out there.

Hub Plumbing unclogged my kitchen drain. They were friendly, on time, and upfront about a service charge to come to the house. What they didn't mention was that there was also a standard price they charge to fix drains and that is $342.

Hub Plumbing did fix my bathroom when it overflowed. That said, they probably charged about $250 more than what another plumber would charge. And they were here for 15 minutes. And it wasn't even during after hours.

Don't fall for the flat rate vs. by the hour...of course that works in their favor because most of their jobs are in under an hour.

If you can avoid these guys, I would do that at all cost..or you'll be PAYING for it!

Hub Plumbing & Mechanical has excellent customer service and follow up skills. We had a situation in one of my rentals with no hot water. They came out the same day (evening actually), went in, diagnosed the problem and was able to fix it on the spot. They didn't try to hardsell any upgrades, just took care of business. My tenant was thoroughly impressed and called me to let me know how happy they were. Hub isn't inexpensive, but they give you peace of mind for sure.

So on the hottest day of the year, my central air conditioning went out. For someone who lives in Boston, 100 degree heat is not pleasant. While I am sure that half of the city probably had A/C issues that day, this place came within 30 minutes and fixed the problem in under 10. The most amazing part was the cost. I thought it was going to cost me half of my paycheck to get the problem fixed, but the bill was actually reasonable.

Hub Plumbing & Mechanical helped me out twice, once with a horribly clogged disposal and then later with a broken thermostat. Both times they were quick and efficient and very helpful in solving the problems and also giving advice about future use. I can't say too much about the price because the landlord picked up the cost, but I had great service with these guys.

They communicated with me before the job, during and after the job. I was at work at the time and this work was done on a rented apartment I own. It worked out perfectly.

Our toilet was clogged and they came to fix it right away. I was surprised by how fast they came. They were not rude; in fact, they were very polite and sociable. We chatted about the weather while the work was completed in less than twenty-five minutes. I was able to get to work because they completed their work so quickly!

We had a problem with our toilets at work and I called many plumbers that said they could not come the same day. I called Hub Plumbing & Mechanical and they came in about one hour. They were friendly and fixed the problem very quickly. They were a little expensive, but they got the job done when other companies couldn't make it. I would use this company again if I needed a plumber.
