Finally Found a Trusted Partner For Appliance Repair! (March 15, 2016)

"I called concerning my gas dryer and left a message and within a very short time I received a call back from Don. He scheduled himself to be at my home the following morning and he was on time, which made me quite happy. Most service suppliers will only give you a 4 hour window of their arrival and typically, they either do not call ahead of time or are seriously late. Don is very well versed in his profession and very helpful in offering tips and suggestions. My dryer is now working just like it did when it was new. I would recommend him to anyone anytime; he is very down to earth and pleasant to be around. If I had anything to say that might be considered negative, I don't believe he charges enough for his services. Lakes appliance repair stands heads and shoulders over any of their competitors, as far as I'm considered."

"Our refrigerator broke down, and I gave Don a call. He was able to diagnose the problem over the phone, and was even willing to come over that night to repair it. I scheduled him for the next day, and he showed up on time, and within 30 minutes he had fixed the refrigerator, and was on his way. Very friendly, and great with the family dog! The following week my washing machine broke, so without hesitation I called Don again. Once again, Don showed up on time the next day and fixed it in less than 30 minutes. I will be calling Don for any repair I need in the future. Great businessman with a great attitude, and does great work for a fair price. Thank you so much!"

"Don has proven to have solidly held benevolent values that he adheres to in his business. He is a folksy type of businessman in an age when that attitude or approach has vanished. Specifically, he will offer advice and answer questions over the phone. He will do it repeatedly, with patience, being generous with his time, and he will seek nothing in return. He is intent on being of service even when there is no financial gain for himself. He has also lent tools to do-it-yourselfers in a display of helpfulness. Don is trusting and helpful to an uncommon degree--even when it's undeserved." - Ken L.

"I want to compliment one of your techs, Don Lewis. He has been to our home a few times to work on a couple different appliances the past couple of years. He has always been a straight shooter, and has always quoted us fair prices for the work he does. I never have to worry if he is going to try and jack the price up for work we don't need. I would recommend him to anyone I know."

"After reading Don's online reviews (...which seemed too good to believe), I sent him an email outlining the challenges ( longer auto-defrosting) my 22-year old Amana frig was having and photos of the frig's manufacturing label listing model number, etc. Just like his reviews stated, Don very quickly replied within the hour.  Don gave me a choice:  he would walk me through the diagnostics over the phone, or he could swing by later that same afternoon on his way home.

I am NOT used to this high level of customer service from any quarter, I must admit.  I was pleasantly surprised, and it reminded me of a different age where it was about the relationship with your customers that mattered most (...I realize that I'm showing my age, here).

Don kept me up to date with his arrival time via text, and gave me a ample time to prepare for his visit.

Upon arrival, he respectfully removed his shoes, quickly diagnosed the issue (...bad defrost timer), replaced the timer, tested the frig, accepted my credit card on his smartphone, emailed me a receipt and thanked me for my business.

All in under 30 minutes. Don has my unreserved recommendation, period. Thank you, sir!"

"I wanted to write this letter to let everyone know that I received great service from Don, Lakes appliance repair. Every time I called him he either answered right away or responded quickly with a returned call. Nothing was ever a problem for him and he was able to come out to fix my refrigerator right away. If he had to order a part he always kept me updated on when it would come in. He was able to work around my schedule.  I definitely plan on using him again when the time arises."

"Don goes above and beyond every time! He is prompt, knowledgeable and courteous. Thank you, Don, for coming to our rescue last time my washer broke!"

"For all who use lakes appliance repair,
To put it simple, I called, he answered immediately, he showed up on time, he was polite and friendly with my tenants, he knew what to do and how to do it with any brand or item and his work was clean and efficient. I use him regularly.  I have multiple rental homes that need servicing from time to time and he is the only one I call. Being a landlord good quality service people are a true find and Don certainly fits the category.  Don is an experienced customer service oriented business person who really cares about people and their issues and not how much he can make from any one job as he cares about long term clients!  And in today's “get as much as you can” market that is hard to find.  Don and Lakes Appliance Repair are truly bringing back old school customer service as he is a rare find for this day and age!"
Always satisfied,
Anthony Ciucci, - Kenstone Group LLC

"As a Top Producing Realtor & Investor, the service people I recommend must be very good because it reflexs on me. I use and HIGHLY recommend Don Lewis, owner of Lakes Appliance because he is not only fast at returning phone calls but he is really good at what he does. He has always gotten to my repairs the same day I call him, even if it is 9 pm when he shows up. He never lets you wait. He stocks parts for all of the different appliances I have in my homes so I never have to wait. Great Service, Great Prices, and Honest & Friendly businessman. What more could you ask for!"
