Dear Michael It's difficult to begin to explain what a good experience it has been after my back windscreen broke. First off, the insurance were amazing and then they sent you guys. Catherine was great – she followed up when they could not find our place on Friday and came back to me again and again. Then Mdu and Thabiso came to fix the car. They did an amazing job!! I came out to wipe the back before they put on the window, they assured me they were going to fix it all up. They left the place immaculate, gave me clear instructions on removing the masking tape, made sure I was fully happy, checked the windscreen wiper and on top of it all, were great, pleasant people to have around. I really appreciate the service of your company, it is most surprising in this day and age and turns the “disaster” I had when my window was broken, into a really pleasant experience, interacting with such lovely people and getting the service that they gave. I could not find one piece of glass lying around when they left either. Please thank them again from me! And congratulations to you for the service your company offers.
I cannot but convey my most greatest pleasure being served by the whole Autoboys team, from the Call Centre lady Erica that called me and the lady who called me yesterday- your call centre service is excellent- to think I had two claims with you within a period of two weeks and you guys treated me, wow with the utmost courtesy. THEN, Autoboys Victoria Street Woodstock Cape Town- Jacques, JJ Charl let me just tell the country that these guys are the best, the best at fitting in glass, pre or pro customer car! I had a claim two weeks back and JJ assisted me fitted my glass and sent me off a happy lady, then yesterday I had to have another glass fitted, I just called them and still yesterday we went through and Jacques fitted my glass no hassles and off I was again! Autoboys has gone far and beyond serving me in this traumatic time with these smash and grabs/ malicious damage I had in this two weeks! I would recommend them to anyone be it through your insurance or even private - their service is professional, swift and hassle free. Thank you Autoboys services and especially auto boys Victoria Road Woodstock Cape Town.
