Not completed vehicle

Over year of nothing but lies and headaches had to get Berlin police and get my car out of there. The car was not completed best advice stay far away from this con man and if you dont believe me do you can do your own research or just call the Berlin Police department and you will find out

User's recommendation: Stay away…….

I had my car there from 1 Oct 2019 to almost Nov of 2020. He only did the transmission and a *** paint job.

I didn't even touch my engine. He always uses his wife's medical condition as an excuse not to finish your car; As if he is the only worker at his shop.

Review in Service Centers and Repairs category from Brick Township, New Jersey

I too was a victim of Dan Murphy and his partner Chris who painted my 69 Chevelle. Dan charged for brand new parts and put old rebuilt parts in the car. We were scammed out over 10k between Dan and Chris. My father's ashes were to be added to the paint of my car and Dan lost them..... after hours there and threats to call the cops and tear the place apart myself Dans father and his son found them. Chris and Dan should both be in jail but that may be to good for them as well. They will get free meals, free cable and I will still be paying for it for them. Dan has also scammed many people out of money for fundraisers that he fraudulently held. He is a dirt bag and should never be able to operate again. 4 shops 3 years and who knows how many people gave him money for work never completed

So called great mechanic destroyed our car

2014 November , car was to have. Motor rebuild , trans rebuild, by Dan Murphy Hotrod Garage , in Sewell NJ . Never got receipts for the engine build so we have no idea if new parts went into this motor. After months of stall tactics and excuses car was not running . Every time I went to the shop he was not working on my car. And kept saying he needed parts.He moved my car to the Sicklerville NJ location and the car sub-stained body damage and car was still not running thousands of dollars and car is destroyed . This guy has no idea what he is doing . I want my refund 10,984 we are devastated. all we wanted was our car done for the summer of 2015. This was a simple job

Know what's funny you report on a couple different pages and the price is different that you want back and to find out that you get cars built and try to take the builder to court to get money low life
