Here’s How to Find the Right Mechanic for You

With dozens of auto shops out there, choosing a mechanic you can trust to repair your car can get daunting. You need to assess whether the person you pick is highly skilled and experienced. Otherwise, you could end up spending more than what’s necessary, or worse, you waste all your money for nothing.

Breast Cancer Car Donations is here to help you find the right mechanic. Below are five questions that you need to ask when choosing a mechanic to fix your car.

1. Have you worked on cars similar to mine before?

You must pick a mechanic who has experience repairing cars of the same make and model as yours, especially if you’re driving a vehicle that requires special maintenance. You don’t want to take your car to a mechanic who has to play the guessing game in dealing with your auto.

2. Do you offer estimates in advance?

Getting an estimate for services without paying upfront is always a smart idea. Make sure you ask the mechanic about their estimate process. Get the numbers in writing to gain a clear understanding. Also, tell them to call you beforehand for approval if any spare parts are required.

Keep in mind that no mechanic can give you an exact figure without inspecting your car first. Estimates are just estimates, which is why you must see to it that you go for someone who will provide you with reasonable estimates and full information.

3. Is there a warranty for parts and services?

While your mechanic may be one of the best in town, there’s still a chance that your car won’t be in great shape after they fix it. Why? Car parts are sometimes imperfect. Not all of them are bound to work properly.

That’s exactly why you should ask the mechanic about their warranty policies as you interview them. Many repair shops offer a warranty up to a certain limit, while others go by mileage.

4. How do you manage unexpected costs?

So, what happens when the mechanic has already given you an estimate only to discover later on that there’s something else wrong with your car? Will you need to pay more, or will you only pay for the work you agreed on?

Knowing how the mechanic will handle those surprise expenses can mean the difference between a hefty bill and a small one. Don’t forget to include this question during the evaluation process.

5. How long have you been repairing cars professionally?

A good mechanic is one who has a good standing, which means having a long list of returning customers, positive feedback, and years of experience in the field. That’s the type of mechanic you’ll want to take care of your vehicle.
