It was my first time getting my tires replace at action gator tire and I was very satisfied with the performance and the customer service the employees provided. I added an alignment service to be done but they help me save $89 on an alignment since it was not necessary to done on my car (which I feel like that is very rare to hear). They're definitely the place I will go to from now on if I have any issues with my car.

Great service from start to end! Marvin and Michael gave me the VIP treatment. Marvin gave me the best price around on 4 Michelin tires. Also a coupon for my oil change. Michael ordered me an Uber to and from work while they took great care of my car. They checked my brakes and alignment at no charge. Lucky me, I didn't need those services. Very honest and trustworthy people.

Great service! I was recommended this shop and no doubt one of the best places to go to in terms of prices and speed. Wait wasn’t long, fair prices (compared to the service you get at your dealership). I would recommend locals to check this place out. They also offer great discounts. I went in on a Saturday (they open 7am-1pm) and they were able to get major work done within a few hours. I was pretty impressed. If I had went to the dealership I would’ve waited for a VERY long time and paid much more...

Action gator tire in Sanford Florida is one of the best auto shops I’ve ever been to. All of the guys are wonderful however Michael is the best. We have been struggling trying to get my daughters Dodge avenger running and not breaking down on her for months now and Michael made sure that he did everything to get my 18-year-old up and running without breaking down I appreciate him so much. I will most definitely refer all of my friends to see Michael at action gator tire. Thank you guys for all of your hard work

This place had great service! I was unsure when I brought my car to them because I’m new to the area but they had good reviews on here and I really needed my car looked at. The guys were very friendly and knew what the problem was right away. I decided to wait while they fixed my car and when they found out it might take longer then anticipated they sent me home in a Uber and sent one back to pick me up. They just overall had amazing service and keep me updated the entire time. I’ll definitely be taking my car back to them in the future.

Marvin was extremely friendly and helpful. I went to tire kingdom down the street the day before to patch my tire, 5 hours later they still hadn’t got to my truck. Went to Action today and Marvin made sure someone in the shop was on top of my issue, I was in and out quick and left happy!

So I told my dad I needed tires. No hesitation, he said Action Gator on 46. He called got me a quote and made the appt for when I got off of work. I get off at five so to change all four tires on their last hour here, no hesitation, that’s alright we can take you and get it done. These guys were informative and their customer service was amazing! I will definitely be back for my car needs as they did not disappoint. Thank you to the guys who helped me and helped make my car feel safe to drive.

My 2012 Honda Civic LX recently needed it's 60,000 mile service. I had just spent money on a new warranty, so I first took my car to the dealership for it's service. Everything my car needed was not covered my newly purchased warranty (of course). The price for service that the dealership quoted me was outrageous. I have always taken my car to Jiffy Lube and returned there immediately for a quote from them. I still wasn't sold on their number either as I needed to buy an whole new set of tires included with servicing my car. My coworkers pointed me in the direction of Action Gator Tire and I'm beyond thrilled that they did. Action Gator Tire had the best price for servicing my car, selling me a new set of tires under warranty, and they went the extra mile to fix issues that would need servicing down the line. The service was fast, friendly, trustworthy, and an all around wonderful experience. I truly appreciated such a positive interaction in what started out as a very stressful situation. Michael and Marvin: THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I recommend Action Gator Tire wholeheartedly. You will not be disappointed. Oh yeah: My car was ready an hour early! Seriously, why would anyone bring their car anywhere else?

Today, I had an issue with my tire losing air. My husband was out of town and I needed someone to help me. I went to another tire company, where we had been referred and was told that they couldn’t help me tonight, but I could leave my vehicle overnight and they would get me in tomorrow. I didn’t know what to do and quite frankly, was nervous about driving. I live outside the area and had no other transportation. The manager was not interested in helping me at all. I was at a loss as to what to do. I pulled into the Sanford Action gator tire and walked in the door 3 minutes before closing. Marvin Seip and Michael Bernard told me they would take care of me, don’t worry. They were so gracious and helpful. Marvin asked for my keys and told me not to worry, they were there to help me. I felt so bad that I walked in that close to closing time. Both Michael and Marvin told me they were there to help me and not to worry. He had my tire patched and sent me on my way. I can’t tell you how thankful I am but more important is the level of customer service they showed me, I will never go to any other tire company. I absolutely appreciate both of them and the kindness they showed me. I will absolutely recommend this Action Gator Tire and Michael and Marvin to anyone.

The employees here are so helpful. I have a BMW and they were able to help me with my battery issues. They work quickly and their prices are so reasonable. I also really appreciate how they were able to refer me to other places that were just as amazing and trustworthy as they are for other services that I needed with my car. I’ll definitely be coming here for any other issues or services I need and I would 100% recommended it to everyone.

Service was much faster than expected. I Had asked to get an additional front end alignment and after their inspection they advised against it because it was not what was beneficial to what our vehicle actually needed. Most places would have just performed and charged for the service. Action Gator did not. Nice to have a shop that still keeps honesty and great customer service as job #1. We dealt with Marvin (I believe that was his name) and could not have been happier. He was very polite and understanding of our needs. You can trust this shop. Our family has been using them for many years.

The service at Action Gator was great. I was a walk-in and they got my tires changed as fast as I could’ve hoped. I was in and out within a few hours. Not to mention the price was better than the quote I received from Tuffy (the shop down the street). Marvin was super helpful, and they’ve definitely earned my loyalty. I recommend these guys.

I stopped by to get my girlfriend's brakes checked. The gentlemen at Action Gator Tire checked them out in addition to a general safety check. They found nothing wrong and didn't charge me for their time. They also didn't try to sell me any products or services that I didn't need. Their honesty is refreshing.

I thought I needed my wheels balanced or an alignment because there was a horrible vibration coming from my passenger door when driving at a high speed. After the manager and his tech inspected and test drove my car they found it to be the chrome molding around the door coming loose. They didn't try to sell me something I didn't need and didn't charge me for their time. Needless to say when I do need new tires or brakes I will give them my business for being so honest and helpful. Thank you!!!

Friendly service, they really represent the community. I bought a tire months ago at one price and today I needed another for the other side (same) type and size. The price dropped $10 and Action Gator didn't try and upsell me for what I paid months ago. The honesty is well intact. I'm happy with the service.

This place is amazing !!! The staff are all very professional! I was in a panic needing to get my tire fixed ASAP! I went to a few different shops before and none of them is where I wanted to get my tire fixed. I was about to settle for one place until something told me to try one more place.. and literally right next door was this place, so I decided to give them a shot! I was not disappointed at all, and I left with the biggest smile on my face ! Thank you guys so much for all of your help! I will never forget the service you all provided for me !

She got roadside service with her tires and we had to use it less then a week later for a electrical problem and they paid for the tow .then today i needed my truck tires rotated and they were very professional and they weren't going to sell me stuff I didn't need or push it on me.

I came to Action Gator Tires to purchase a set of 4 tires. I received commendable customer service from Michael and Marvin (and his mustache) These guys gave me the best deal in addition to a smile! Just a few weeks later, I picked up a screw and the roadside hazard program picked up the tab to repair it! Afterwards, Michael followed up with me to schedule an inspection and full repair. No fuss! In and out!

Very professional, honest and upfront. I only wish there were more mechanics shops like this one. They seemed much more concerned with good honest work to keep customers coming back for future business as to trying to get a few extra bucks by over charging. I really appreciated that. Its hard these days to find good honest mechanics. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

I went in to get all 4 of my tires replaced, and I also had them adjust my alignment. The staff was very friendly, and even though I came in a bit late ( which caused them to have to stay after they were scheduled to close) they were all very nice about it. I felt the price was fair, and I would recommend this place to family/friends.
