Hank is always helpful and keeps you informed of everything

After having alternator put in a few days ago, I noticed my car radio did not work. Hanks came right out to car and got it going!
- Verified Meineke Customer
The gentlemen at the desk was very helpful. I initially went to Advance Auto next door to have a battery tested and replaced. Due to the battery being under the passenger seat, they couldn't do it and referred me next door to Meineke. Everyone there was very polite. They were able to immediately get me in and had it fixed in no time and on my way. You have an awesome group at this store. I wish I had paid more attention to their names.

We are very polite to me and my family and you have fixed my truck.

Paul, your manager is someone I trust and always has done a good job, and if I say I need to be out of there at a certain time he never lets me down.

The owner of the Meineke really knows what hes doing. Both with his business and while maintaining vehicles. As a military fighter aircraft mechanic, I truly appreciate his diagnosis skills while working on my vehicles. Will continue to use this Meineke and recommend it to all.

I am very well satisfied with everything I have had done at Meinke. I will continue using Meinke for any car work I need.

Hank is a real pro and never talks down to me (typical middle-aged female car owner). He knew I had to get to work and put two technicians on the job to get me out in record time. He answered all of my questions on the tires I need in the near future and I will return very soon for the tires and a tune-up. Also, they have an absolutely gorgeous tropical fish tank in the waiting room which I find very relaxing to watch while I catch up on a great selection of current magazines on the coffee table in front of a very comfortable leather sofa....Highly recommended and very convenient location.

I was driving along Gulf to Bay and got a flat tire driving on rim and I saw a meineke on other side of road I went in and Hank took over Tire repairable and I have a Porsche so needed a special order he phoned around to get me a tire and a good deal and let the car stay overnight One of his team called me when ready Excellent service and I was so lucky to break down in that location! Thank you Hank

I love meineke. They stand behind their warranty in every State and or location!
- Haze D.
Excellent service. I originally came in for an oil change and ended up buying two tires, as well. On a busy Saturday, I was accommodated and the wait was more than reasonable!

My serpentine belt broke on a Saturday and Monday was a holiday. I figured I would have to get a rental car and be stranded until the following week. All of a sudden I saw your store open. You guys took care of my issue among others. I will make sure to use you from here on out for all my repairs
- Edward M.
My continuing hero is Hank Harbaugh, GM, who has been checking and servicing my 1996 Toyota for a number of years. The biggie for me is the pre-service inspection which in past years has identified several issues that could have become problems had they not been identified and had I not opted to have them fixed. I shall continue to use this facility as long as it continues to do that which it has done in the past. Since I spend several months in the summer in McLean VA I have discovered the Meineke on Springhill Road, adjacent to the condo I live in when in VA. I had the master brake cylinder replaced there in 2016 and shall continue to keep that location in mind if I need car maintenance in future when in the area.

My overall experience at Meineke (Gulf to Bay) location was excellent. I got an oil change along with brakes and some other items.The service was fast and thorough and I felt that I was given the best possible car care ( I mean they gave me bottle water, how nice was that). I even recommended them to my mom! that's a pretty big deal.

I was surprised by the professionalism, honesty and technical knowledge of the staff.
- Verified Meineke Customer
- As always, they were -in addition to being knowledgeable-, professionals and courteous. - The associate who helped me at the front desk, was very kind and understanding by arranging a courtesy ride -despite their busy time- to take me to work as they worked on my car. - The associate who took the time to gave me the ride was also kind and friendly, and I was sincerely grateful for the ride and his time. I thank you all.
- Joe O.
The owner was very helpful and informative on the repairs that I needed on the vehicle I had just purchased. i was treated with a great deal of respect and my experience was very pleasant.
- Linda B.
I was visiting my daughter in Tampa Florida, I was stopped by a very nice lady who informed me that my driver side head light was out. Of course I was in a panic, my daughter said when we get back in (which by the way it was a Thursday night) go online and set up an appointment. Friday morning I called to make sure that my 2015 Nissan head light can be fixed. I took it there less than 15 mins it was done. I was very satisfied and I was able to drive back to my home in Atlanta GA. Thanks Meineke for helping me to relax.

I have returned to this Meineke location the last several times I needed service for my car (2436 Gulf to Bay Blvd, Clearwater, FL). The gentlemen at the front desk are very accommodating and knowledgable. They take their time to explain everything it detail and they show they truly care about providing great service and keeping you and your care safe & working properly. The prices are always reasonable compared to other shops and they even throw in an extra discount once in a while when you have several things done at once. I will continue going to this shop for future service. Thanks for the great work guys!

Repaired brake fluid reservoir and topped me off. Made me aware of extreme inner tire wear. Informed me of sludge build up and recommended a service to clean it up. Taught me the difference between hub-centric and lug-centric rim mounting. Everyone was very professional courteous and helpful.
- Marcus L.
diagnosed the problem quickly. pleasant atmosphere/employees. completed various work tasks on my car in very little time with friendly service.

The owner Tyler is very knowledgeable and personable. He is easily approachable and is not pushy. It is because of him I will return to meineke.
- Steve B.
Hank did a good job of explaining what was wrong with my car. It was fixed in a short period of time and the price was reasonable. I also brought my truck there and I went to get an alignment and Hank explained that my inner tie rod ends would need to be fixed first. I was glad he didn't just do the alignment and send me on my way and it not fixing what my problem was.
- Verified Meineke Customer
The manager of the store was very helpful and the price was what he quoted me over the phone with no pressure for any other work and it was finished much sooner than when he told me it would be.
- Verified Meineke Customer
The staff was very diligent in resolving the issue. They replaced one part and then another issue popped up. They spent considerable time tracking the issue checking thru all the electrical connections. It was late in the afternoon so they got a ride for me home. The next morning they finally got to the last issue, (not a common problem) ordered the part and finished the job. And my car is running great. I do not know the name of the manager because I gave his business card to my neighbor and recommended he use them. Very pleased with their service. I always used Meineke when I lived in Lees Summit, MO. I will use this Meineke shop for any service I need in the future. Harlene M. Gunn

- Patricia M.
on time, on budget, friendly and knowleadgeable staff
- Verified Meineke Customer
Staff was very friendly and helpful. I went for a oil change and went with the oil change packackage for an extremely reasonable price. They looked at my car and gave me some recommendations and I had some trouble with my automatic window which they fixed free of charge. Overall great experience!
- Haley N.
Hank (Store Mgr.) handled my appointment in a very professional manner. Also he made recommendations for additional services, but was not pushy about it. I plan to come back to have the brakes serviced at a later date because he explained the different wear levels in a meaningful way and was not pushy. It was an education, not a hard sell. I appreciated that approach.
- Joseph S.
Hank's the man. I spent a bunch but it would've been so much more if I procrastinated. Extremely knowledgeable, professional and the guys got so much done in such little time. My car is like brand new. Plus-- the warranty/guarantee and free towing within 10 miles of any meineke (with purchase). I can't stress enough-- if you need brakes, tires, oil, etc DON'T WAIT! Better go see Hank and the fellas at Meineke or you'll be sorry.
- Peter S.
Very helpful very professional and very honest. You can't go wrong with that.

- Mark R.
Tyler and Hank are wonderful. I had a small problem and they didn't hesitate to fix it, no questions asked. Would recommend them to everyone that I know, as I have already done.
- Linda S.
I liked the services provided but have only had brakes and minor services such as oil changes done at Meineke.
- Verified Meineke Customer
I would have scored higher but I was not told about shipping charges for my muffler. Overall the experience was positive.
- Mark S.
Hank always tells me what has to be done now, and what will wait. And there's always some sort of discount. Taking them a new customer later today: my new fiancee.

Friendly, honest service. I trust my family's vehicles to our local Meineke because the Team is trustworthy, hardworking, and honestly gives you their very best.
- Joseph H.
My experience was wonderful, not only because of your workers competence, professionalism, and courteousness, but I suffer from narcolepsy and had anticipated being there at least two hours. When I informed the manager, of my condition, and that I may have to come back another day if my time was surpassed, he got two mechanics on my car and they managed to get all my work done in a little less than an hour. I greatly appreciated this since it allowed me to get home safely.
- John W.
Reasonable prices and quality wor and completes with in said time. I will be back.
- Jason W.
Great customer service. Your rewards program saved me probably $100 on a towing of my car to the store. And the tow service was the most efficient I've ever seen.

I had an excellent experience with Meineke Justin walk through everything with me and have my work completed in a very professional manner my car was taken in immediately and worked on and was done in a very timely fashion I will recommend this particular Meineke to anyone I know that needs car maintenance
- Woodward T.
They tell me what needs doing NOW, and what will wait. They almost always cut me a little slack on the labor and the parts markup.
- Dale A
Tyler and Hank (Manager and Assistant manager, respectively) are incredible! Extremely courteous, professional, and hard-working, they are able to diagnose and fix your car to get you back to running full force. Better yet, it's usually in a matter of a few hours or the same day! They are a very asset to your company~give these guys and their staff a big raise! They've earned it time and time again, in my opinion!
- Teresa P
excellent service, reasonable rate, very very professional approach to customers
- Verified Meineke Customer
From the first phone call that I made to make an appointment to get my car repaired, to when I came in and through the whole process, I was impressed with the professionalism of the staff at Meineke, especially from Store Manager Hank Harbaugh. This guy is the best, and he explained the situation to me and even hooked me up with a Meineke credit card, and got my car done in about two hours as promised. Overall excellent.
