Customer Testimonials

  • I recently went to Higgins for the first time based on a recommendation, and it was a great first experience! They fit me in on the same day, were quick to fix my issue and were really friendly. It's also the first place I haven't felt like they were trying to charge me more because I'm a female. I'll be going here for future auto needs!

    Cassie Harbaugh, Des Moines

  • We have been looking for a good quality repair shop with reasonable prices. We have finally found it. Its easy to make and apt and the work is done well and on time.

    Steven Liston, Grimes

  • Great prices, and honest, friendly service. I've been going here for the past 7 years, and have yet to have a negative experience. If you have any issues, be sure to let the owner know. He is very concerned about his customers satisfaction, and will often go out of his way to make things right. Highly Recommended!

    David Darrow, West Des Moines

  • Have purchased 2 sets of tires from Higgins and have had good luck. They have quick turn-around and fair prices. Will continue using them for my automotive needs.

    Kent Carlson, West Des Moines

  • Pat was so pleasant, professional and honest with the service he performed. Didn't charge extra labor from his quote even after he had to work longer to get to the part he was replacing based on its location and other wires in the way.
