Shopping >Lombards Stereo
One of the finest in the central coast. Well how can I begin, I did my whole system at lombards. And I experienced nothing but excellent customer service and quality. I went in originally just looking for speakers but in the end, I did my entire system there. And the whole way dave was nothing but helpful. Discussing with me product info and what not to and what to get. Always making sure that I was happy with the quality of the products I purchased. I would recommend this shop to anyone. I dont really understand the negative reviews of some of the other people. Obviously they were looking for ferrari quality at a honda price and found that they were shut down =). Anywho my hats off to the guys at lombards. Outstanding job everyone keep up the great work.
Fantastic Service. I went into Lombard's looking for a new head unit for iPhone/iPod control and new rear speakers. The sales guy Jason was prompt in addressing me and listened to what I was looking for. After tossing ideas back and forth, he offered up a suggestion for the iPhone/iPod connectivity I was looking for that I had never heard of, then showed me the installed product in his car. We discussed options for getting better sound out of the existing head unit as well. After talking to Jason, and the owner, David, I decided on some rear speakers and an iSimple iPod Kit. Lombards installed the equipment and the fit and finish are perfect. After my first encounter, I went back and spoke with David about replacing the front speakers and adding some lows. David was willing to work with me and came in under my budget. The car is done and the sound is awesome, the installation was pain free, and I'm in love with the results. Everything looks professional and works as they described. Lombards prices are fair, and they are willing to guarantee their workmanship. They are NOT the cheapest place in the area, and I've had work done elsewhere, and it's evident you get what you pay for.
The place to go!!!.
I have been dealing with Lombards in Santa Maria for over 5 years. They have worked on my car and truck. They have gone out of their way to make sure that I was happy with how my system sounds and looks.
They have a busy place, so if you have to wait a minute while they help another person, it's OK. It 's worth the wait to talk to someone who actually has a clue about gear and installation. Other reviews have said that they are too pricey. These people are obviously trying to get something for nothing. The prices are fair, especially with the time and attention you get from the sales guys and the installation crew. I've seen installations from other places in Santa Maria in acquaintances' cars, and it looks like spaghetti under the dash. Installs of amps, subwofers, door speakers and tweeters in my cars look like factory.
I didn't experience any kind of crappy attitude from the sales staff; I have NO idea where that previous reviewer got that from. They were nothing but nice and answering all my questions.
I would recommend that you go to Lombard's if you want great sounding gear and quality install in your ride. I have heard that the management of the Santa Maria store has taken back over the Lombard's (I think it was a franchise store) in San Luis Obispo. This is a good thing.
Worth every penny!.
Was the install cost at Lombards AutoSounds more expensive than SoS and Atlas? Yes! But it's worth every penny! My installation looked like something you see on TV, everything neat and all the wires were routed clean and out of the way. My last car was done at SOS and they didn't even mount my amp, it was just sliding around under my seat with wires to trip over, and it kept blowing a fuse.
The guys at Lombards were actually knowledgeable about the product they sold me!!! Everyone else just said "You should buy this one", without ever explaining why, or letting me choose based on what was best for me. Lombards AutoSounds workmanship and customer service was 100x better than what I've experienced at the cheaper shops. Their work comes with a lifetime warranty on all labor!!! And its even in writing on all the receipts!
And unlike the guy above, The more I was interested in, the better the deal was. My entire system was going to cost me over $3,000.00 but I saved over $500.00 for getting a package deal!
terrible service, rip off, will never take my work there again. first of all these guys are rip offs, i took my truck in and got a 3000 dollar stereo system cash, no deals, just cockiness and ignorance out of the sales rep Juan, a fat idiot, all he does is talk sh*T on other brands they dont carry, and try to make you feel like and idiot. ill never go there again overpriced, and they do a sh*tty job.
Returns only for Store Credit. They have a return policy that only allows you to return items for store credit. I bought a radio and brought it back with a receipt with the unopened radio 5 days later. That's when I found out I could get store credit. They will try to make you happy if they can but they're going to keep your money.
