I went to Poor Man's at four in the morning to get my door locks fixed and they noticed that I didn't have any oil in my car. They put oil in my car so that the engine wouldn't lock up and I am pleased wit their service.

This establishment is a joke the office manager and owner Albert are doing damage control surfing the net and posting reviews that are good. Just visit several sites and you will find the percentage of bad experiences out weigh the good

PLEASE AVOID THIS PLACE!!! Unprofessional and horrible customer service. We were quoted a $55 price for towing. They charged $75 for diagnostics and told us they would not repair the car. Then they raised the towing price to $85

I had taken my car to several repair shops to get a estimate to have my car fixed. The prices where out of my budget. I decided to wait on getting the repairs done for two weeks. I received a emergency call and needed to go out of town. I was very concerned about how I was going to get there by the next day, with my car in the condition that it was in .I needed my car fixed now. I called Poor Mans Towing and Auto Repair at suggestion of a friend. When I took it to the shop that day I found out I had done even more damage to my car by continuing to drive it. Poor Mans towing not only charge me a lower price than all the other shops they stayed passed the working hours to make sure I would be able to leave town that day for my family emergency. The help I receive from them that day was tremendous and the money that I saved really help me out I was able to go be with my family in our time of loss. My car has been running fine without any problems for over a year now.

I had a blown head gasket and messed up struts. They dealership wanted $2000 to fix it, money I didn't have. I thought I could get a better deal, with Poor Man's. I should have gotten online and checked reviews or else I'd have NEVER gone.

The owner said he could get it done in 3-5 days, a week tops. Both head gasket and struts all for $1200. That seemed like a great deal so all seemed okay, until he told us about payment. They only accept CASH, and they require HALF of the total payment of front. For two weeks I heard NOTHING about my car. They only way found out anything was by coming up there in person.

Finally, two weeks after dropping my car off, the owner gave a date to pick it up. When the day arrived, we spoke to the owner who now 'didn't like how it was sounding' and suggested I get a new engine.

Seriously, RUN from this place. Pay more money and get it fixed elsewhere. The only discount you're getting here is on customer service. The 'Poor Man' in the title is you.

I just wanted to get my oil change car is own it's way to the junk yard. they pulled it in and I waited about five minutes. they called me back to tell me they did not want to change the oil because car was in bad shape which I agreed not expert news to me. So I left and went home, car started to over heat so I pop the hood and what do I find, they did not put the oil cap back on. Ok, this is a no brainer because their name speaks volumes. Don't trust them with any car old or new .

I needed a transmission. My car was still in running condition, wanted to go ahead and get it fixed. I was told by the owner that he could put in a transmission in 1day. After paying the initial payment, they had my car for 2 weeks, never updated me on anything. I had to call or go to the shop to get any information.
Finally he admitted that he could not get the job done after a confrontation. He also state he would give me back my money since he could not find the part. I only received part of my money back. To this day I have never received the remainder of my money, my car no longer runs,and he avoids my phone calls. Spend more money and get the job done. DO NOT GO HERE OR TRUST THEM!!!!!

I called them and told them that i had hit a tree and needed a new radiator, I was quoted 110 so I had it towed in and after I got it there they said it was hard to get out so it went to 165. When I went to pick up my car the price changed again due to them not knowing I hit something. I told them that from the beginning. They should have checked with me once the price went up. NEVER use them the price will change over and over.

This place took advantage of me since I was out of town. First, the cost to repair the vehicle was extremely unreasonable ($2,300) - appears they wanted me to just say "take it". Next, the cost to get the vehicle from them was also unreasonable. They charge me for diagnostics that were not needed and somehow lost the key when I decided to have it towed to bloomington IN and repaired for $1000 (used engine and installation). I would not recommend them and would like to see some accountability on their part. I thought Poor Man's towing would be a reasonable place by the name, but now realize the name is directed to the customer.

I was stranded on a busy street and couldn't find someone to tow that wasn't going to make me wait two hours. This company did not make me wait - they got to me in 20 minutes. I was so relieved!
