Featured Review

Manager Tim was very helpful and got the vehicle serviced promptly. Okay, it was more expensive than I wanted but brakes are not something to be trifled with ... I was hoping it would be just pads but I don't know enough to make that determination. The mechanic that did the brake job showed me the problem and explained the necessary ... and he did an excellent job. He also made sure everything was back in order when the vehicle was returned to me. Frankly, I was so pleased with the way I was treated that I brought another vehicle in the very next morning for an oil change. Nice job Meineke Beverly MA! Thanks.

tim was cery hrlpful in getting my car in for brake pads and rotors on short notice. Very punctual and helpful.

Tim was very accommodating when I called at 7:45 & had to change the 8 am oil change to later in the day. 3pm was ideal with my schedule. He is courteous & professional.

The associate was more interested in fixing my car problems than in selling me repairs I did not need. Only did as much as necessary to solve the problem--and on two occasions that did not involve any cost to me at all. Therefore, I trust the guy I deal with and when he says I need a repair, I know that I need it and he is not just "padding" the bill. Trust was built with oil changes and other routine maintenance, so when major issues came up, I had the confidence to have meineke do the work. I do get second opinions on all major work, and compared to Firestone, Sears, and local auto mechanics, Meineke came in with lower prices, more convenient service times, better informed and more clearly expressed explanations of the issues and repair options. I enjoy working with a local business in my hometown, within walking distance of home. Much more convenient.

Tim is so trustworthy and helpful. I really appreciate the good work they do and the time they take to thoroughly explain the repairs.

I typically do not like going to garages because many times, they try to pressure me into buying additional services that I do not need. This is the second meineke that I have been to in recent years that treated me like a customer should be treated. The customer service was great and they did not try to sell me additional services or parts. The gentleman at the front counter was very friendly and welcoming, my wait for inspection was minimal and overall I had a great experience. Thank you!

They Notified me that I had to replace coil spring along with getting new shocks and struts and found best price for the part. Very upfront about the work that I needed done
- Sean B.
Brought my car because my brakes weren't working properly and the mechanic discovered that A ball joint was in dire need to be replaced. Upon completion, I was told of 2 other things that need repair. I will return to Meineke to have the work done as my car is running so much better. I believe I have found my new mechanics. Kudos to Tim and the crew in Beverly, Ma.

Extremely friendly and honest. Mechanic said I needed 4 bulbs to pass inspection; I wasn't sure that was true but took their word for it. On another one of our vehicles they told us "next time" we should think about brake pads. Another place may have said we needed them now. Very satisfied with my experience here!

Tim, Matt and take good care of my car. Trust is big. I trust these guys when helping me make a decision about care car.
- Beth R.
only got a inspection sticker was quick nice guy polite
- Kathy W.
Service was great, the accuracy of the estimated cost was right on and the knowledge of the service manager was instrumental in my decisions regarding the type of tire to purchase.
- David B.
The man working the front desk was very helpful and adaptable to my particular situation. I had to leave to get something done to my car, then the state inspection was completed a couple minutes after I returned to Meineke! This was all on the morning of my graduation day, so I appreciated the recognition of my situation's time sensitivity.
- Eric L.
My car broke down on a Sunday and I got it to the Meinele lot. The addressed the problem first think Monday morning. I was leaving on a road trip Tuesday and I felt the whole Meinele team work diligently to get my cat ready for Tuesday take off. Muck appreciated!!!!

I was treated like I was the most important person in the waiting room. When I came in I had no appointment but needed help because my ABS and anti-skid lights came on. Paul greeted me like he had known me all his life and proceeded with the diagnosis. I never felt like I had put him or his staff out by walking in off of the street with a problem that could be time consuming. This is the way customer service should be.
- Kathleen L.
I had just purchased my new 'used' car the day before and needed an inspection sticker. My business is on Cabot St so I often take Rantoul St when heading home. Honestly, I had never really noticed the Inspection Sticker sign before, most likely because I didn't need to, but was very happy to have noticed it that day. My apologies for not remembering names, but everyone was very personable and friendly. They took my car in right away, inspected it and I was on my way in a short period of time. Thanks!
- Susan M.
Tim at the front desk was extremely helpful. They were able to get my car in on short notice and have my repair done the same day.

Tim was great-I called and he told me to head right on in. Work was completed quickly, everyone was nice and very clear about exactly what was being done as well as how much it would cost. No complaints at all!

Everyone at this location is amazing. Professional, polite, and very personable. Very willing to show you what they're going to work on if you ask. The car I brought into them was not my own (my father has a specific shop where he wants the work done at), but I have been here several times with my own cars. Always great service and quick to accommodate my crazy schedule. The Rantoul Street location is awesome!!

After being told it would take 15 minutes for the muffler assembly to arrive I was still waiting an hour and later for the assembly to arrive. At this point one of the techs offered me a loaner vehicle to use. I took him up on this offer and was very thankful.

I worked with Tim at Tte shop on Rantoul St. In Beverly Ma. and found him to be very knowledgable and professional. He took my car in diagnosed it and fixed it accurately and timely. He and his tech notions should be recognized for the excellent customer service they provide. I don't usually go to chain shops but Because of them I will be going back. Mike P.

Tim went above and beyond to help me and other customers. A man came into the shop and had stated he had an autistic son in the car. He asked if it would be possible for someone to look at his tire without having to take his son out of the car. Tim jumped right up and went outside and said let's see what's going on Sir. Matt and Tim took care of what seemed to be a stressed out Dad right away. He was on his way shortly after the problem with the tire solved. My oil change was done by Matt he was fast and efficient. I trust this shop. They explain everything before and after service. I bring my car back again. Thank You Beth

Service is always great. I have two vehicles serviced at Meineke in Beverly MA
- Brian M.
I have come to this location a few times in the past. I always feel comfortable. Everyone who works there is real nice. My truck is never returned with grease smudges and finger prints all over which always is a problem at other places. The price is always right and work is always good and timely. I will continue to recommend Meineke Beverly to everyone.

I had a warm friendly greeting when I entered...The man at front..I think his name was Tim...(he wore glasses) treated me with respect..and even wrote down what I needed for my car....he made me feel very good ....offered me coffee.....The man with gray hair worked on my I saw him get in my car to drive in garage..... EVERYONE was very friendly.....I am very happy that I FINALLY listened to the person who recommended me to try Meineke.....THANK YOU!!

Always pleasant, always courteous! Thank you.

I have never found bringing my car in for service a pleasant event, so I was a bit skeptical this visit, despite a friends recommendation, would be any different. However, right from the start I was treated courteously and made to feel that my appointment was important to the man at the counter. I wish I could remember his name! In any case the work was done in a timely fashion and again, I was made to feel like I was doing THEM a favor by bringing my car to Meineke and NOT the other way around. Chris? maybe his name was Chris, told me that my struts would be in need of replacement in the future and to keep it in mind. He didnt pressure me to have it done right then and there which I was happy about as well. I left the station knowing that I would be returning soon to have the work done and that if any of my friends needed car service I would tell them a great place to go.

Tim was very good to deal with

It was a quick and easy drop off and pick up which I really appreciated!

They fixed my car by reattaching the muffler that had fallen off and dragged down the street. The job was done correctly, promptly and very Efficiently. I was very satisfied. You were highly recommended by Brian at Kelly's Quicklane in Beverly, right up the street.
- Paul C.
Quality and quick service for everything from insp. stickers to repairs. Most of the repairs have been completed within an hour or two after dropoff. I've only been there 3-4 times and the staff member I usually see is Bill in the Beverly location - very friendly knowledgeable and answers all my questions regarding repairs.

- Karen M.
I called last minute and Bill was amazing. He understood the fact that i waited till the last minute and he made sure everything went perfect. He got the vehicle in and out. About 5 months ago i was reffered to your location by a family friend because i was dealing with some horrible customer service through the chevy dealership. I needed a replacement within my coolant system and they knew price was a huge concern. He explained everything as it occured. He even called me when they found out the part they thought it was and found a new part that was cheaper! Great workers! Great service! You have my families business! Thank you!

Fair price oil change. Quick in and out. Treat customers with respect while I am waiting.

I had my two back tires changed. The tires that we chose to use were the perfect balance of affordability and usefulness.
- Jane W.
As a newcomer to the area, Tim the manager was very helpful in answering my questions. Though I went there only for an inspection, Tim got me in and out quickly. He explained what other services Meineke could provide - not just oil changes & mufflers as I first thought. I like this shop and will definitely return.

You were able to fit me into schedule for an oil change and state inspection with less than 24 hour notice. You also found a bad filter that needed to be replaced. Everything was completed within 2 hours from dropping my car off to paying and driving off the lot. All around great service and will be back for future oil changes and repairs.
- Verified Meineke Customer
I dropped my car after hours and called first thing and talked to Tim. He was VERY professional and has a great phone demeanor. He did the research and legwork to call a Honda dealership and talk through a repair pick up the part and have it all resolved by end of day (5:30). He took my payment over the phone and I picked it up after work from the train. It was Great!
- Allie P.
The Beverly Meineke..with Tim at the desk...always take care of our cars. They always find time, even on short notice. Most importantly I trust them and the work they do.
- Verified Meineke Customer
This was simply a state inspection but about a year ago when someone reading the icons on the instrument panel told me I had a serious problem. Because this Meineke is near my home I popped in. All it need was an oil change which was done immediately. I had had very little experience with this new car at the time and I believe the owner of this shop was very calming in answering questions. I would continue to return here with anything that Meineke could care for.
- Verified Meineke Customer
I was provided with the above and beyond service that creates a life long customer. I was having issues with a hard to reach light as well as noisy brakes. Tim the manager let me know what parts to buy to save some money and had his team install them for me. Then his team was trying to identify the problem with the breaks. When they had trouble Chris the owner took it for a spin to identify the problem. Keep in mind this was a Saturday. He came back in and explained it to me like a friend and came up with a plan of action to get it fixed. Both are stand up guys and I was extremely impressed. Overall they stand by their service and truly go above and beyond. They care about their customers.
- B Rett B.
I went in because I was having a problem with my battery. I was taken right in, they checked and determined I needed a new one and it was installed on the spot! I was in and out in no time...problem solved!
- Georgia N.
The person at the desk was very helpful, polite, and knowledgeable. Although I had come in for an oil change I had a question about my breaks, and he took the time to explain what the options were for fixing them.

Oil changes on both cars were great No complaints here Keep up the good work
- Eric R.
Nice people, good service. Thank you!
- Verified Meineke Customer
Oddly a great experience. The guy who runs it is very knowledgeable but also very personable and engaged with all the customers as they were waiting. He told me my options and leveled with me in a way that made me feel like I wasn't getting ripped off. As I sat there he literally called various places to find the 3 or 4 parts I needed for the next day. Clearly a guy that takes pride in what he does and how he engages customers. I usually avoid chains, but I will definitely be going back to this guy.

They were already booked solid, but still made time to get me in for an oil change that desperately needed to be done within my tight schedule. They were so kind about it, very quick, and humored my toddler in the office. I was amazed at how fast, obliging, and accommodating they were. Great job, guys!

I always get an appointment when I need it and that can be difficult for me with my job. Tim who works the front desk is polite and explains everything to me. He understands that I was nervous about changing car care locations and that I had been taken advantage of before at a dealer. The price is right and very fair. I am very happy with the service!
