Andy has helped me twice in one week! The first time was getting me to another advisor I got disconnected from (excellent customer service) and the 2nd time was for a kit for an old Crutchfield purchase. He was very helpful and very prompt. Thank you!
Katie Goldsmith, August 28
Andy's so cool. I haven't installed a radio in 10 years and I honestly wasn't sure where to begin. I basically told him exactly what I was looking for and he wrapped up everything I needed in a cart. Plus he was able to answer the specific questions I had about the process. This is why Crutchfield is the best.

Great customer service and help me pick out the right speakers for my Honda Odyssey! Thanks Andy!
Aaron, January 14
Andy was very knowledgeable and after a series of questions helped me make an educated decision. This is the third time I have used Crutchfield and their customer service is a reason why I came back. Andy's patience and dedication are rare in the electronics industry in my opinion, his consultant approach is a breath of fresh air.

Andy took me through the entire process of getting a deck into my '07 Jeep Liberty. He made sure he found a radio that fit my requirements well. Even crazier was that I had been in the market and seriously looking for the last week and a half and he exceeded my expectations in what he found. After that I brought up several "what if" questions like "What if I want to add new speakers or woofers or XM radio" etc. He knew his stuff and he was on his game and he is the reason I bought a new deck. Thank you Andy! Thank you Crutchfield! P.S. Get the man a raise, he's too helpful.
Adam , October 22
Andy took the time to talk to me about differences between powered soundbars and subwoofers and a complete system. He answered all questions I had concerning different products and felt like I had the right information to make an educated purchase. I won't hesitate to call on him in the future.

Thomas, February 26
I am writing in order to let Crutchfield know that Andy provided outstanding customer service on my behalf today. He explained each of my questions, first teaching me that 4K has two formats and correcting my misunderstanding because I was only aware of one format. He then provided a very thorough response to my request to review receiver models that facilitate both formats and was upfront about the fact that Yamaha does not yet support THX. He went above and beyond by providing me with two product links and the direct phone number to Yamaha to inquire about upcoming product releases that will include Yamaha receiver certification for THX. Crutchfield is fortunate to benefit from Andy's representation of your company with a truly extraordinary degree of competence, his thorough communication to customers regarding their questions, and his exercise of very high professional standards when it came to assisting me and advising me regarding my questions. Please know that I have been, and will remain, a loyal Crutchfield customer for years to come. In closing, I request that you contact me via the email address that I have provided in order to confirm that you have shared this report with Andy, his immediate supervisor(s),and the assigned chain of supervisors to whom he reports. I kindly ask you to do in fairness to Andy's excellent representation of Crutchfield.
Scott, February 17
Thanks to Andy you have one vary happy customer. He helped me pick out a powered subwoofer and I just received it hooked it up and I'm blown away by the performance of the infinity PS312. I cant thank Andy enough for his expertise and knowledge. Thanks a thousand times Andy.
Jared Truesdell, January 26
Andy helped me choose a stereo receiver. He was very responsive to my needs and recommended a product which I had not at first considered. I look forward to trying out the item when it arrives. Thanks, Andy.
Rob, January 11
I had the pleasure of speaking with Andy through the chat feature on Crutchfield's website. I was in the market for some speakers for my son's Chevrolet Blazer and Andy was very helpful in not only making sure that I chose the correct speakers that would fit the factory locations in my son's Blazer's factory locations but more so, He assisted me in choosing the ones that would also sound the beat as well! Andy also made sure that I knew how the system worked for repeat purchases which provides added value for doing business with Crutchfield! I found Andy very professional and a pleasure work with, but also very informative on your products! I will DEFINITELY purchase from your site again and hope that Andy will be the representative to assist my family and I with our audio and visual needs!

Rich Kachmarsky, September 18
Andy helped me make a last minute switch to a newer model that I saw just after my order. He made it happen quickly and painlessly. Top-notch customer service!
Alan Martin, September 3
Very good! I've never ask questions before I've done my own research so by the time that I chat to someone I'm just not certain of some aspects. Most online people on the "chat" line don't read what you said and then start asking questions that you mentioned in the first place. Andy was short and sweet with his answers and it was quite nice experience. Thanks
Luna, August 19
Andy nailed it for me. Told him what I was looking for as an old guy who isn't in to all the latest tech. He understood me instantly it seems, and since we had the same tastes for music, he gave me 2 solid options. I intended to be around $100 for a deck, but I ended up going with one that was about $20 more and could not be more confident in that decision- it was a perfect fit! I'm solid with home audio, and would opt for analog over digital sound every single time- Andy took that into consideration and drove me to the deck I knew I had to have. Many thanks my man. This is what brings me to Crutch every single time- outfitted 3 vehicles, working on a 4th now.
Tom S, August 8
Andy was great to work with. Answered my questions and got me to a great price point to seal the deal. can't wait to get my order. Ordered years ago from Crutchfield and was very pleased and feel this round will be the same. Great Staff and Great Company!

After a few email exchanges with Andy utilizing their extensive Crutchfield selection, I was up and running with a rocking system for my 2001 Jeep Cherokee. The install instructions were clear and concise. Now I can blast the motivational tunes while driving to my favorite snowboarding spots!
