    Mr. Jackson advised me not to repair my old riding mower but offered to sell me a used one at a good price. He was the first of three lawn mower repair companies to contact me and showed up on time. If you are in the market for a good used mower I would recommend Mr. Jackson.

    My main point: get a firm understanding of what you want him to do. If you just want the problem fixed, say so. Especially if you can do the other maintenance items yourself and don't want to pay for the things you can do. Other issues: seems very aware of the reviews he gets, but had no idea his posting says he accepts credit cards and offers a senior discount. He only takes checks. He also declined the senior discount since he already "gave me a discount". I told him I only needed the carb fixed. That cost me $50 last year with another tech. He lowered the price to $85 which is more than I paid, but much better than $150. I didn't consider that a discount, but more in line with a carb repair, not a discount. If he was discounting his normal repair, then he would have also changed the spark plug. He did not. Picked up mower promptly. Told me he would check it out and call me with what he finds. Called with $150 repair charge. Since I pay $300 at most for a mower and paid $50 last year, I was not going to invest another $150. I would just buy a new mower and told him so. Told him thanks, but no thanks. He then said it was already taken apart. Then told me the other things he was going to do: new plug, sharpen blade. Told him I just sharpened the blade on grinder and I can change my own plug and filter. Just fix the problem. Told him to just bring it back. He then said the work would cost $85. I ok'd that. When he dropped it off and I said I had issues with the repair costs, he said " the bill from the last repair was $150. No it wasn't. It clearly said $50. Did he base his estimate on that ? I hope not. I might use him again.

    Vendor declined Deal through Angie's List upon arrival to pick up mower for repair. He requires mowers to be "working" which he defined as readily started in order to receive the Tune-up Deal. (NOTE: your current Deals for his work still omit his specific requirement, so has he mentioned it to you yet to avoid other misunderstandings?) He considered my mower as "not working" since starting fluid needed (but, curiously, not because of disabled control-bar cable bracket), blaming YOU for neglecting to mention this requirement for Deal eligibility (in other words, it was not his fault I did not qualify). He told me to request refund, declining your mention that "estimates can be given for larger repairs; offer will be applied toward larger repairs." For direct payment, he said he could give me a "better price" for tune-up and cable replacement because his on-site inspection indicated to him that the bracket alone could not be separated from the cables, thus requiring the combo of cables and bracket be replaced. He could not estimate the costs for tune-up and cable+bracket repair, so I told him to limit charges to $150. He returned the mower evening of 8/4/17. Invoice was for $150 for "1) repair cables, 2) rebuild carburetor, and 3) service unit complete." Questioning him for specifics revealed "cables were repaired" (NOT replaced) by securing existing bracket containing cables back in place with zip-ties and electrical tape. I asked what actions were covered by term "Service unit complete" and he described most of the actions described in Angie's List Tune-up Deal checklist. He added that he found a high volume of "dirt and leaves from inside gas tank" for which he accused me of mowing without the gas cap (which I do not recall ever happening as I am the primary operator). Also, his description of the extreme degree of contamination in the gas tank, if accurate, would have been incompatible with the good engine performance I had as late as the day before. He bemoaned this task kept him up until 11 pm the night before. On 8/4 when he returned the mower, there was about 1/3 tankful of fuel and I was able to start the mower on first pull. I was not able to use the mower until Fri 8/11 due to the weather, and found additional problems. He had removed the padding on the mower handle and did not replace it (I have arthritis and need it). Engine cover was discovered to be "askew," i.e. not level or in alignment (I have photo but do not know how to submit it), yet it was securely in place. Mower started on 4th pull but ran only for about 10 minutes. Fuel tank was found empty so more ethanol-free unleaded fuel was put in tank. Mower was thereafter not able to be started by any means and fuel was noted to be dripping from behind air filter (carburetor location). I have lost $150 and still cannot use my mower. I am elderly and regret trusting Angie's List as a reliable source for service providers. Please stop endorsing this vendor. He is playing us both.

    Great. The repairman came to the house and picked up the mower to take to his shop but would have done the work at our house if he'd known the mower brand and model. He was in our neighborhood when he called on another call which is why he didn't have the parts with him.

    Very well. Mr. Jackson arrived first thing in the morning, assessed the condition, and took the mower with him after confirming he could obtain parts. He returned the following day with the mower operating well. In addition, he noticed a tree that had blown down in the yard the previous evening in a storm and arranged for a crew to come with chainsaws and clear the 30-35 foot Bartlett pear tree. I am very pleased with the prompt, excellent service.

    This is a follow-up to my earlier comments a few months ago. Mr. Jackson, at that time, was able to repair and get my mower running, including putting in a new carberator. The previous shop I had been using had charged me for cleaning the carberator but they had not. The second time that I went to cut my grass after the initial work Mr. Jackson had done the mower would not start. I called Mr. Jackson and he came to my house the very next day. The new carberator was already starting to clog. Mr. Jackson cleaned it out, and suggested that I switch to regular leaded gasoline. I made the switch and since then my mower has started on the first pull every time, and the engine is running smoothly. Over the years, I have tried most of the other lawn mower places in town. Waste of time. Just use Mr. Jackson and you will be completely satisfied. If I had known of him years ago I would have saved myself a lot of time and headaches. There was no charge for this visit.

    This is the best lawn mower service I have ever experienced. Mr. Jackson was prompt, professional and provided excellent customer based information. I had tried a number of other repair services over the years, and found Mr. Jackson on Angie's List. Absolutely and completely satisfied. If you have not been completely satisfied with other lawn mower repair services and customer respect - this is the exact opposite of that. Also, pick up and delivery service and senior discount. Not possible to say enough great things about this experience. Mower now runs like it is brand new.

    He did GREAT!! He came out very quickly after I called and he checked out the mower right there in the yard with me so he could show me what he found. I could easily see the damage he pointed out, and he was able to give me an estimate right there on the spot. He took the mower with him saying it would be done in about 7 days. My yard really needing mowing, but I understand repairs take time. He called me the VERY NEXT DAY saying the mower was done!! I was very surprised! He said he had planned to go fishing, but he didn't feel right doing that with my mower sitting there waiting to be repaired. How often do you find THAT kind of work ethic anymore?!? So he had gone ahead and fixed it so he could get it back to me quickly and I could get the yard mowed. He delivered it that very day and ran it around for me so I could see things were all repaired and working correctly. He also let me know things that would likely need replacement (original belt) the next time it was serviced. I plan to use him for the annual tune up from now on. I trust him, it is worth it for me to not have to do it myself, and I believe it will help my mower live longer. I HIGHLY recommend him!!! Great work, great worker, great guy.

    Richard Boykin Mobile Small Engine Repair
    He showed up early again -- told me Pressure Washers weren't really his area, but he was happy to take a look -- he worked on it for about 20 minutes and figured out how to get the pump working and adjusted the engine throttle for me.  This is the same washer one of Tallahassee repair shops told me it would take $250 at a minimum to fix - that's why it was still sitting in my garage.  Mr Boykin, is professional, polite, reliable, and just good!  He will get all my small engine work as long as I'm in Tallahassee.  I highly recommend him.   His price was very reasonable for making house calls.

    Richard Boykin Mobile Small Engine Repair
    Mr Boykin is great!  I called an spoke to him yesterday and he told me he'd come out at 10 am this morning -- he showed up at 9 apologizing for being early - Wow!  That in an of itself is rare.  Really nice guy, very polite, professional - analyzed the problem and fixed it onsite -- took about 15 minutes and only charged $20 -- I tipped him because he was so nice and solved the problem.  Will definitely use him for all my small engine repair work -- I understand he also does yard work so when my mower finally gives up, I will likely go to a service :)  
    Great job, done quickly for a great price, and on-time!  I'm very happy with his service.
