He is honest and has highly skilled technicians who are certified by various automakers to do all kinds of work on cars, including warrantied items! I even bought my latest car from him when one of his customers moved overseas. Since he had kept it in great shape, I knew it would be a good buy. I’m still driving it: a 1998 Toyota Camry

Barry Steinberg from Direct Tire is on the Steering Committee with me on Belmont-Watertown Local First. The focus of Local First is to do business locally which will keep money in town and allow us to have a strong local economy. I have been going to Direct Tire for years and they are very customer oriented. There are coupons on the local mailings that you may receive. They do work on cars on anything from oil changes to brake work to tires. Check them out.

there isn't much they can't do but they will be honest if they can't. The owner Darren Cummings has become like an older brother - looking out for me and giving great advice and guidance on my car.  They have loaner cars which make any repairs much more convenient.  He/staff have driven me to and from work when a car is not available - I work nearby in Waltham.  I've sent many friends to him and they also find him dependable, trustworthy and extremely helpful when dealing with car issues.

I had occasion to use Wheaton Electrical last week after finding their name on this list. They were terrific. I now have a new four plug outlet and a cable plug in a bedroom that had only one outlet before. AND the electrician fished it through Not cheap, but not the most expensive either. Importantly, they did very good work.I recommend them highly.the walls so I have no ugly cables running in visible sight or in tubes along the baseboard!

Anything you need/want done around your home, I’m fairly certain that Dave can do it – and do it really well! For me, this past summer, he demolished my kitchen to bare floor then patched the ceiling, painted the whole room and prepped it for installation of news cabinets and appliances (by Ikea); fabricated and installed stair railings; patched damaged tiles around the bathtub, installed new bathroom flooring, and installed a grab bar for the tub; and patched damaged walls in the basement.

I just also had my furnace and AC replaced by PR Douglas. The owner, Paul Douglas is very nice and hopefully everything will work well. The price for both was $6570, I think. It was lower than Accu Air. For the AC alone he said $4100. My service, HomeServe gave me a quote of $5700 for just the Ac. I won't be using them again

great company. They installed my furnace and air conditioner about 10 years ago and I have maintained a service contract with them (pay an annual fee) which includes semiannual visits (late fall and late spring) to test out my system. Not sure what it costs if you don't have a contract but they are really good.
