Safety Restore is a company that offers it's seat belt repair services to both individual consumers and car dealerships alike. When a vehicle is in an accident where damage occurs to the seat belt many people buy a new seat belt which can cost upwards of $900 per seat belt. Safety Restore offers selt belt repairs at a fraction of the cost. Their 24 hour repair services starts at $65 and go up to $150 depending on the make and model of the vehicle. Artem Martynyuk stated the following about his company, "the most important thing we do here is obviously safety, so we take that very seriously. More importantly the reason we're in business is because we're saving people money...we're here to save people money, do it in a way that's safe, and get them satisfied."

Leads for Safety Restore are primarily obtained through advertisements on Google, their website, or word of mouth advertising. A potential client can find Safety Restore online where they can explore their vast array of products. From there they can, "place an order for whatever their looking for.

We repair it within 24 hours. Ship it right back, and it's that simple."


During the onsite interview Mr. Martynyuk was asked to describe a situation where a client wasn't satisfied with the level of service they received. He expressed that sometimes they run out of stock which puts them behind on the 24 turnaround. In order to remedy this Mr. Martynyuk states that they will reach out to the client and explain the situation. He went on to state, "their dissatisfied and now we have to look for options to make them happy...I let them know that it will take two weeks, but at least maybe we can offer a credit, cover shipping, or so something so at the end the customer is happy.

When asked about the comments placed on Ripoff Report's website Mr. Martynyuk expressed that the comments were made while the company was under different management.

It's pretty much a bullet proof customer service program we have here." One of the ways that Safety Restore goes above and beyond for their customers is their use of OEM Parts, "using them not only give us the best piece of mind safety wise, but it's giving us the opportunity to do it the same way the manufacturer does.

Safety Restore or srsrestore Seat belts returned not repaired after charging an additional $160 Westfield Massacuhuetts

We found Safety Restore on ebay and needed all 4 of our Audi seatbelts re-set.  Safety Restore showed on Ebay that each seat belt would be $59 and we put in our specific vehicle to verify that was the correct price and they could repair the seat belts.  We sent the belts in and the guaranteed turnaround time was 24 hours.  This was April 11, 2013.  We did not get our seat belts back for over 2 weeks.  This alone is very frustrating because this made our vehicle not driveable for all that time with no seat belts (vehicle had been in an accident).  By the way, it is now May 20 and vehicle is still not driveable......


After filing a complaint with Ebay about the extended length of time it was taking to get our belts returned to us, they said they were waiting on parts and that they would ship out by that Friday.  We then received a notice from teh company saying we would have to pay an addtional $40/seat belt (total of $160 additional) because they were dual stage seat belts.  After talking to the company we determined we had to choice because they had our seat belts and were holding us up to get our vehicle back on the road.  I tried paying that on ebay but they said that we would have to pay them directly into their paypal account, which we did.  We received them the following Friday.   


The seat belts were reinstalled into the vehicle but the codes would still not reset on the vehicle.  We paid several people to try to determine what the problem was with the codes and even installed additional (expensive) parts to try to correct the problem.  Finally it was determined that the seat belts had never been reset. 


We tried to get in touch with the company but only get voice mail saying they are remodeling but cannot leave a message.

Incorrect Data: SOLVED

AUTHOR: James Conway, Jr. - ()

This customer has ignored very easy-to-understand directions (created in response to thousands of customers) who voted for how the description page should look like. This includes the simple warning that the listing is not compatible with DUAL-STAGE seat belts. A dual-stage seat belt, is a seat belt that is equipped with 2 (dual) charges. This means that the parts alone cost twice as much to obtain from the manufacturer, and the labor cost associated with them. Regardless of the description, the customer sent in the seat belts. As soon as we received them, we have contacted them to explain the situation. We offered to provide a full refund and send the items back, or for an additional cost carry our the repairs. The buyer agreed to pay the additional cost. 

The DUAL-STAGE seat belts were repaired, tested, and shipped back to the buyer.

The buyer states that the seat belts were not properly reset, and that there were codes generated by them. You must understand that these codes are generated by the MODULE, and there is nothing to reset within the SEAT BELTS. 

We apologize about the unpleasant experience you had.
