Lloyd's Tire & Auto - Santa Cruz

The customer service at Lloyd's is incredible. I just bought new tires from them. They were cheaper than Costco, plus they ordered the tires over the phone without a credit card and there were no long lines to stand in. I then had them replace the brake rotors and pads on my my car. There was a stuborn squeal that we couldn't get rid of, so Dean eventually replaced everything AGAIN. No more squeal. Above and beyond customer service from Dean and Scott. Thanks guys!

Other than my exposure to Click and Clack on NPR and that one time I changed the oil on my old 87 Volvo waaay back in the day, I am pretty much completely ignorant when it comes to car stuff... So when the dealer service center told me I needed brakes and tires I thought I'd put it off for a couple months... then after some research, this week I checked out Lloyd's. They're honest, quick, to the point, competitively priced, don't try to sell me stuff I don't need... AND don't make me feel like a dumb bimbo when I ask a stupid question. Bottom Line: I got top-of-the-line new tires cheaper than Costco and new brakes 60 bucks less than the dealer- plus great service and they're a local family owned business... Lloyd's, you just might be my new peeps.Bonus: Location! What's a 30 min or even 2 hour wait if you have all of downtown Santa Cruz to stroll about? I'm thinking of timing my next appt. on a Wed... get my farmer's market on while Matty my car get's her maintenance on.

Lloyd's takes care of their costumers. They have competing prices and quick service. My family use to run a fleet of trucks in their business and used Lloyd's since they opened a million years ago. Even though we no longer have our family business I still use Lloyd's for my and family members personal car tires. This is a old school Santa Cruz local family owned business and you will not find service like this at any of the chain stores. Support local business, and get top notch service.

Lloyds should be listed at the top of the charts in auto repair, not just tires. I mean they do tires, but they have done all the repairs on both our cars for the past two years since I discovered them. They have repeatedly underpriced versus the Lexus dealer and the Dodge dealer by hundreds, they have been quick to point out that some of the things I want to do are unnecessary see if that happens elsewhere, and they are on top of technology---nitrogen tire inflation, free wi-fi, just-in-time parts delivery--these guys have done auto service since the 40s? And stayed right up to date with a total service mentality.

Great place. Had a leak in my pretty new tire. My wife took it to Skips who tried to sell her a new tire saying it can't be fixed. Fortunately I said BS and took it to Lloyd's who fixed it in 10 minutes. Great place. Honest and competent people.Update: I recently had another tire fixed. I got a call the next day from the office person telling me she noticed they mistakenly overcharged my CC and would refund it immediately. Very honest people.

Wow. Great Service Exceptional Customer Service. Found this place through yelp.. and went in because my tire pressure monitor went off. They checked my rim and found that it was nothing wrong with the tire, but it was the rim that had a defect. got new rims on Now i am going through warranty and getting the replacement rim directly sent here. I will update my experience. PS: My Service advisor was Graham ! Nice guy! highly recommended

When I lived in Santa Cruz they were the place I always went to. Now that I live in San Jose I miss them.

I used to live in Santa Cruz, and I always took my car to Lloyds for my tires and other important services. Now I live in San Jose, and when I had a flat tire recently I was forced to take my car to a Tire shop near my house. As excepted, they changed my tire and then proceeded to give me a long list of additional products and services including new tire rods, break adjustment, new struts, another new tire, et cetera. Skeptical, I took the list and my car to Lloyd's Tire Service. They did the alignment that I requested, and examined my car. They also assured me that everything else on the list was unnecessary... all my tires were in good shape, my tire rods were in perfect condition, and my struts were a bit worn but definitely not in dire shape.Very few of us have the time or inclination to become expert mechanics in our free time, and so having an honest tire shop that can be relied upon to provide important services without trying to rip you off truly is priceless. The mechanics at Lloyd's are not always the most friendly, but they are honest and efficient and care about their work. Taking your car to Lloyds, even if it requires an out-of-town trip, is definitely worth it.As an added benefit, Lloyds is in a great location very close to downtown Santa Cruz, so you can drop off your car and enjoy a nice lunch, catch a movie at the theater, or even take a nice walk to the beach.

Very good communication and the price for my shocks are not too bad. They actually got my shocks done in a day and I paid $800 dollars plus I had to get my car aligned. I got a notice in the mail to get my car balanced and my wheels rotated, but the funny thing is I went to Costco to buy a new set of tires 3 weeks later. But anyways for the most part I found this place through yelp in fact so good choice. If you need shocks, brakes, or any other service down, then go to Lloyd's tire. I plan to use Yelp again to find a local mechanic to do my tune-up before school ends.

Have been living in Santa Cruz for 25 years, and I would not go anywhere else for tires. There may be other shops in Santa Cruz that are as reputable , but Lloyd's is near my house, and I've never been given a reason to shop elsewhere. They are quick, professional, and charge a fair price. Their mechanic services are also excellent - alignments, oil changes, etc. Give 'em a try. They're honest folk, and they're a LOCAL small business.
