I took my 80-year-old mother to Motown Fires showroom in Chesterfield township where she picked out the birch logs that she liked. We met with Steve and he couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. We scheduled an appointment and Derek the owner came out to my home and because I have a tough time making up my mind whether I wanted an insert or not he actually came out to my home twice. Derek could not have been more helpful and more accommodating. Every time I had any questions when I spoke to Steve and or Heather they were always very polite and willing to do anything or answer any of my questions as needed. I got notices ahead of time reminding me of my scheduled appointment through email and text messages so when the technicians Pete and Dylan were on their way to my home they were also polite in helpful. I was surprised at how efficient they worked and how fast they got the job done. My mother and I are very happy with the job Pete and Dylan completed. We let the fire Burn for 5 hours the first day and for an hour the second day to cover the break in period and everything looks beautiful and worked fine. My mother and I would highly recommend Motown Fire LLC for any of your fireplace home improvements from Derek to all his staff the experience we went through for our project could not have been made any easier and any more accommodating. Thank you Motown Fire, Derek, Steve, Heather, Pete and Dylan for all your hard work and help, the job is beautiful. Sincerely Steph And Chris

Dylan and Pete came out to assess our new (old) homes current fireplace condition. They inspected our home thoroughly and determined the best course of action with us regarding our options on how to proceed forward. They were EXTREMELY knowledgeable and went over every detail with me so that I could make the best educated decision for my home and needs. I was very much impressed and satisfied with their service and recommend them to anyone. Thanks guys! 🙌🏼🙌🏼

Everyone working at Motown Fire was exceptional. Very good with communication and pleasant to work with. The only problem was with the actual fireplace supplier. Love the look and works fine but it took months to get it finished.I can’t blame that on Motown Fire, they did all they could do.

Motown Fire would be my first call if I were getting another fireplace. They were the only company to call me back instead of sending a templated email. We're a ways from their showroom, but the associate, Steve, made it easy for me to email measurements and send pictures of my existing chimney. He shared models that would fit. The owner, Derek, drove out to quote the work. He already had a rough estimate when he showed up and made final adjustments onsite. Finally, the crew was on time and completed the job without issue. We love our new fireplace and have used it nightly since install.

Best hands down! Wish I had more fireplaces for them to service! Hardworking crew trying to figure out a problem caused by another company. No sales pressure. Always teaching the homeowner. Meticulous clean up!

Motown Fire installed a log set for our gas fireplace and recently sold us an electric fireplace for our basement. The company’s price was competitive and more importantly, the staff was very patient in answering the multiple questions I posed before making the purchase.

Motown Fireplace made the process of converting my natural fireplace to gas was seamless from start to finish! My first point of contact was Steve, who answered all of my questions thoroughly on the phone and set up an estimate with Derek B., who could not have been nicer or more knowledgeable. Within 10 days or so of putting down a deposit, Dylan and Devin came all the way to Plymouth to install my new fireplace. They arrived on time, were courteous and respectful, and completed the entire job, including gas line installation, within a couple of hours. They obviously know what they are doing! I am thrilled with my gas fireplace and recommend Motown Fireplace very highly for their professionalism and reasonable prices. Great job, guys!!

Pete and Devin arrived promptly, introduced themselves AND even removed their shoes to thoroughly inspect and service my gas fireplace for the first time since I moved into the condo 3 years ago. The fireplace was not throwing any heat and the flame was blue rather than orange. They removed the screen and glass to completely empty the firebox of all lava rocks and “logs” to fully inspect the pilot, air vents and wiring. They cleaned the screen, glass and box. They explained everything and determined that it was not running efficiently bc the air intake vents were covered by the lava rocks. The glass cover had not been attached either. They replaced all the rock, logs, glass and screen after working for about an hour. They were knowledgeable, neat and efficient and answered all my questions. I will call Motown Fire, LLC for all my gas fireplace needs, annual inspection and cleaning. They are 5 STAR!

Matt and Dustin were very helpful and were able to quickly replace my gas fireplace valve and install and remote starter. They were patient as they walked me through how to use it. They also took the time to measure for an additional gas line! Would definitely recommend Motown Fire

Devin and Dylan did a great job repairing the igniter issue on our Napoleon linear fireplace. And Heather was great to work with scheduling our appointment and even contacted us for an earlier appointment when it became available. Great job Motown Fireplace. We will be using your company in the future. Thanks again!

I needed a gas line put in for my grill. Motown Fire was recommended by the grill salesman. I could not be happier with the service I received. They came out for a quick consultation to make sure the project was feasible. Then they were very flexible in making an appointment to come out and install the gas line. The work was done quickly and efficiently. It was much appreciated. I highly recommend them.

The service and staff are amazing!! Our fireplace kept shutting off after a few minutes and it was difficult to find a company to come out for service. Motown came out (in a very reasonable time) talked us through the issue and proceeded to resolve the complicated issue (the FP is only a couple years old) We run it every night all year around (our pet loves it and won’t stop talking until it’s on). From pricing, professionalism, knowledge, explanation, care and putting their clients first, this company deserves more than 5 stars!! Thank you and we look forward to maintaining our FP with you!!

I had a set of traditional gas logs and was considering changing my system to either a direct vent or a ventless system. I went to Motown Fire and was greeted by Steve. He was so pleasant and took the time to explain to me how each system worked, including the pros and cons of each. He spent over an hour with me, which totally surprised me! To this day, I think about that amazing customer take that much time with a customer to educate them and answer their is unheard of in this day and age! I walked out of there knowing that Motown Fire was the place for me! And although I have not yet decided which route I will take, I am confident that when I do, the installation process will be the same...excellent!
