What do their customers think?

One fan of the company publicly wrote, “I noticed that our vacuum cleaner wasn’t working as well as I thought it should and then I noticed that it wouldn’t suck anything up at all, so we took it into DM Vacuum to see if they could get it working again. It’s only an $80 Bissel and is almost 7 years old so we could have replaced it but I wanted to avoid sending it to the landfill if we didn’t have to. We got an estimate of $25.00 to clean and remove clogs and they said they would call if they found anything more serious. They called the next day to say it was ready. I picked it up today and it works great! I’m glad that I spent a little money to get it fixed rather than buying new. The place is easy to find and it’s really close to where we live.”

Another fan of the A Vacuum Shop publicly wrote, “We had our vacuum at a different local repair shop at the recommendation of Dyson customer support. That shop had our vacuum for over 6 months. We finally picked it up without repairs. We then brought it to Jim and they were able to repair it the same day and at a third of the cost quoted by the other shop! They took the time to explain what was broken, how it was being repaired and did not talk down to my wife. Very professional and courteous. We were very satisfied and I will be recommending this business to everyone I know. Would do business with them again in a heartbeat. Happy to finally have a vacuum again and no longer have to borrow the in-laws vacuum.”
