The good: Duffy's was very affordable. They are really nice people. Was given a quote on the phone and the price was the same when i picked it up except for they didn't include tax. So it was about 100.00 lacking. Still was cheaper than taking it to the dealer. Also they didn't charge me for an alignment b/c they forgot to add it in to the initial quote which was nice. The bad: Very poor communication. Dropped off Tuesday. I was told my car would be done Wednesday and it was done Friday. I called twice and both times was told i would be called back with an ETA. I didn't hear from them for a couple of days until I called. When I picked up my car my spare tire winch was broken and thrown in the back of the car and i was told i could buy the replacement part when it came in. No thanks. It wasn't broken when i dropped it off. Also was told i would be called early in the week when the replacement part came in. Here it is two weeks later and no call on the part. I already fixed it myself, so don't worry about it. They seem like nice people. Brad seems like he knows what he's doing but Duffy's should really keep in touch with their customers better. I was without a car for three days guessing when it would be done. Would have been nice if they called me to tell me it was going to be delayed and that the winch was broken. Jay Salillas

I'm not one to normally write a review, but they just gave me such great and inexpensive service I had to share. I had my headlights replaced at a competitors and they kept going out. Brought it here and they figured out the problem immediately (the other guys had caused some injury doing it incorrectly) and replaced them. For 1/3 the cost of the competition!!! They were very friendly, professional, didn't try to sell me the most expensive product, and as an added bonus their client lounge is very nice- wifi, keurig coffee, and a nice TV. They're not in my neighborhood, but I'm bringing my car here from now on.

I have a 2000 p32 workhorse safari motorhome. My brakes locked up in Florida and finding the right parts became a nightmare as the part numbers were "obsolete" according to NAPA and Chevrolet. Vin # searches were not working. I finally chanced upon this dealer by typing in workhorse on the computer and calling. Buddy Gamel not only had the parts I needed but talked me out of parts not needed that the roadside service wanted to me to order (a savings of $1450 ABS part). I want to commend The folks at this business for their expertise, professionalism, and patience. I highly recommend this company.

This part store has good parts at a good price but not only that they have good people that are easy to talk to and they are always shows professionalism every time I call or go in to pick up my parts, this is very important to me because I am the owner/operator of Mechanic On Wheels of Birmingham and getting the part right the first time is critical. Good job Advance auto parts in Hoover- thanks!!!

I found Duffy's on yp.com, and they worked my RRC into their schedule immediately due to an urgent need. Since then, I have had occassion to use their services a few times, and I'm always pleased with bith the result and the cost. Conversely, I have found the service advisors at the dealer here; Tom Williams, to be rude, lazy, and waaaaay-overpriced.

This us the second time I have gone here and was just treated wonderfully. They were honest and even brought me back to see why I needed brakes and rotors then the manager went and tracked down two different coupons to use so I would stay under budget. I don't know what his name was but he was just awesome. Thanks pep boys!

I was referred to Duffy's by a friend. I found the staff to be very knowledgeable and professional. They diagnosed my car very quickly, and as a woman I felt like they explained the situation very well. I will definitely recommend them to all my friends!

Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
