We are always totally pleased with the knowledge and care All Makes Vacuums provides when we have a repair either for our Vacuums or Sewing Machine (which has gotten lots of use this past year!) We would not go to any other shop for a repair or purchase.

Inheriting a family sewing machine poses challenges, like keeping it in good repair. The service received from All Makes was very good and thorough. Special Thanks to Carl for the follow-up phone call! I am very impressed by what a great place this is. When you consider holidays, old machine, and other circumstances - All Makes overcomes all to deliver great service and a great customer experience. Thank You to All! You are a highlight of my holiday season!
