Matt is amazingly good. He's smart, nice, experienced, professional, and reasonably priced. We had a sewer line backed up. I called him at 8:30am. He was on another job but he came out within 3 hours, and took great care of us. I would definitely hire him again any time.

My wife sent out the quote request via Angie's List, we touched base via Email, and set up a time to meet. We both delayed going into work so we could meet with Matt from Beantown this morning at 7:30 to go over the specifics of the job and get a quote. At 8:00 he had not arrived and my wife reached out to ask where he was. He said he was not going to make it to our town today, he seemed to forget about the meeting altogether and offered zero apologies for not keeping the meeting and for costing us 2 hours each from our jobs and commutes. We will be going with another Vendor who answered promptly and came out when scheduled and was interested in doing the job.

I had water backing up into the basement and called first thing in the morning. Matt asked some questions to determine the issue and said he would be able to come by in approximately 1.5 hours. He texted soon after and let me know that he'd be able to come by sooner and was there in an hour. He surveyed the scene and set up to do the work in a particular way as to ensure he didn't make a mess in the house. He also clearly explained the work and the pricing. Since he already had the equipment with him, he was able to offer a substantial discount. He worked efficiently and was done in no time. He carefully checked to ensure the work was complete. Great experience and will be my first call for any other drain issues.

The experience dealing with Beantown Drains was exceptional. Matt was punctual, always showed up on time (came out twice). He replied to my calls/texts quickly and with pertinent information. Matt is knowledgeable, he knew exactly what should be done and which additional contractor to bring out to perform the job. Matt even offered help that was beyond the scope of work that I hired him to do. Without a doubt will hire these guys again.

The two man crew, owner and helper, made several runs with various cutters. A bit complicated getting thru the house trap offset, but the backup was cleared and the price was OK. In the future I expect to have them return for a different treatment--high pressure water jet. Making mush of roots and clearing outflow conduit.

If i could give them less than one star, I would. Not only did they arrive several hours late, spend a whole afternoon at my house and not fix the problem, they also ruined my carpet in several places by dripping greasy water on it then attempting to use bleach to clean it up which, as any intelligent person would know, took color out of the fabric and left light spots on the carpet. And they broke the toilet shutoff valve so that it constantly drips and left their trash on my roof. The owner, Matt, told the person who referred me to them that he wanted to continue working with me to solve the problem but then did not return my phone calls when I tried to reach him and left voicemail. To top it off, the next company I brought in fixed the problem in 10 mins, no exaggeration, literally 10 mins, and no damage to my property.

Another plumber had tried to unclog our kitchen drain but was unable to do so. He suggested that we call Matt. After a few tries, I was able to get a hold of him and I am glad that I did. He was able to come later that day. It ended up being a tough job (about two hours), but he did not give up until the clog was cleared and water was running properly. Would definitely recommend him!

We heard promptly back from Matt who came the next day to evaluate the job. He was prompt, genial, professional, and seemed knowledgeable. He confirmed what we needed, and the price he proposed seemed reasonable. I invited him to my apartment to assess a pressure problem with my shower. As he left, he shared a bit of his life and professional story which was very interesting, and I concluded he was the man for the job. I reminded him to send us a written bid for the work via email, and he said he would get on it right away. I never heard from him again. I left two or three phone messages for him in the coming week as well as an email or tow, and to my astonishment, he seemed to have vanished. So....professional, likable, and capable as he seemed, we were terribly disappointed and thrown back to plan B.

Horribly. Had an emergency and when I called I was assured they could make it out and complete the job within a specified timeframe. They did not and it left me with an unbelievably tough predicament. If they had been honest and let me know earlier in the day the job they were at was taking longer (which I know happens) I could have found another service. No apologies, just the worst customer service and don't honor commitments.

I own a condo in an old building in Cambridge and I called Beantown drains yesterday because the plumber I had scheduled to fix my clogged shower drain bailed at the last minute due to a family emergency. I got in touch with the owner Matt at 12 and he was at my place by 1 and fixed the clog in about 15 minutes. He then noticed that the trap was broken so he replaced that and a couple of other old pieces over the course of a two hours visit. We pretty much talked the whole time while he worked about our jobs, family and other interests. Matt is a really nice guy and a total straight shooter who's goal is to develop long term relationships with his customers over maximizing the amount of money per job. He gave me a totally fair deal for work and parts way beyond what we originally discussed. The experience was so good that I'm writing a yelp review which is something I haven't done in years. I will absolutely call Matt and Beantown Drains when I have another plumbing issue.

It went very well. I have had Matt several times. He is patient with the customer as well as his new help who sometimes comes with him. He explains what he is doing if you want to know, has many different skills and cleans up after himself. I have a major problem with my sewer pipe which was installed only 5 years ago. I have had several backups since it was installed. Matt has offered to call the city to see if he will be allowed to dig up and see what the problem is. Hopefully, he will be successful! It is expensive to have him back followed by the carpet cleaning people each time this happens and, on top of that, I am hesitant to use my facilities. I recommend him highly.

I can't explain how grateful I am to Matt and his guys at Beantown Drains. I called Matt about a week ago (he was recommended by my plumber who for some reason doesn't want to deal with drain issues). Matt sent one of his guys on a Saturday to snake the drain. Scott tried two different snakes, starting with a smaller, lower pair snake and ending with a 100 foot large snake. He spent over two hours and unfortunately was not able to resolve the issue. He called Matt who indicated that he should not charge me anything since he didn't resolve the problem yet and that he would send two people on Monday to address the problem. Right on time, two new guys came on Monday morning. They brought an ever more powerful snake and spent over an hour trying to fix the drain - but to no avail. They then switched gears and tried blowing water through the drain, but still no success. I spoke to Matt on the phone who said the next step would be to try acid in the drain. Matt came early the next day. Before trying the acid, he decided to try snaking one more time. This is all he does and he has been doing it for 10 years. He inspires great confidence. And yet, he still was not able to clear the line. e. Even though he had already been at the apartment for a few hours, he didn't panic and he never gave up. He decided we should try and access the drain further down the line - so he cut a small hole in one of the bedroom walls to access the drain closer to the main. He was incredibly respectful of the tenants property, made no mess whatsoever, and after considerable effort was able to gain access to the drain, cut it open, and install a dandy (???). Before he proceeded with the acid, he called the building maintenance company to gain access to the basement. He opened all of the vents and tested whether putting water in the drain would cause any leaking from the vents. When it didn't he proceeded to slowly pour acid into the drain. He probably spent about an hour putting small amounts in, waiting for it to dissipate, and then putting more. He knew that the clog was at least 85 feet away as the 100 foot snake was not clearing the clog. The drain was filled with water the entire way down to the main, so he had to be very patient to get the acid into the drain. Once he put in the acid, he said we needed to give it a few hours to work its way down the drain. He left to do another job and returned in a few hours, only to find the drain still filled with water all the way back to the bedroom wall. Most people would have been exasperated by then, but Matt just saw it as a challenge. More importantly he kept assuring me that although this was "the most stubborn drain he had seen in years", he would figure out how to get it unclogged. Matt theorized that the clog was so big, that the acid was not able to completely remove it. He suggested we blow more water down the pipe, as the acid may have loosened the clog enough that a burst of pressure might just push the clog through. Because of the risks associated with this process (flooding other parts of the building), Matt was very cautious and planful as he prepared for this step. Thankfully, it worked and the problem was resolved. In total, Matt and his crew spent almost ten hours at this apartment. They used an enormous number of pieces of equipment and spent about $100 on various parts and supplies. While I had been hoping when I made the first call that this would take an hour and cost me $150, I was prepared for a 4-figure bill. Having been at the apartment the entire time, I knew that not a second was wasted and that every effort that had been expended was necessary. Matt suggested that I pay him $500 as this would cover his actual costs, with no profit. While I love a bargain, this struck me as totally unfair. In the end we agreed to a $600 bill. Over the years I have used hundreds of plumbers, electricians, etc. Every once in a while you meet someone who inspires great confidence and trust. Matt and his team fall into this category. I would rate them 10 out of 10 in every category you could measure and will be using them for all of my drain work in the future.

Very well. Matt was responsive, timely, courteous, professional, and friendly. Immediately diagnosed the issue. Took care not to make a mess during the work. Completed work in less time than he anticipated. Applied the Angie's List discount without having to be reminded. I would highly recommend him for service.

A very positive experience indeed. Each time I've called Beantown I have gotten to speak with an actual person. Even though this last situation was hardly an emergency, I was given an appointment within hours of the call. On another occasion I was late getting back to our house to meet the plumber ... but he was there in his truck waiting for ME. He would surely have been within his rights to have taken off for another job. I was impressed. Very satisfied with the quality of the work.
