How To Find a Reliable Auto Repair Technician​.

May 10th, 2021

Having something go wrong with your car can be a total nightmare. We rely on our vehicles to get us to and from our jobs, to pick up our kids from school, and to visit loved ones. Nothing makes you feel more helpless than suddenly losing your ride. And then comes the most anxiety-inducing part: finding an honest technician you can trust.

We’ve all heard the stories. Shady mechanics scamming hapless, unknowing customers. Let’s face it, not all of us know a lot about our cars. So how can we find an auto repair technician we can really trust?

The auto-repair industry is ever-changing and extremely demanding. Technicians are always learning, training, and getting updated certifications. You want someone with the highest skills possible but who is also fair, honest, and reputable. Here are some tips for making the best choice when selecting your technician.

Ask Around

Start by asking your friends and family what mechanics they use and recommend. If possible, ask someone who has a vehicle similar to yours. Word of mouth can be incredibly helpful in your search. And you already trust your friends and family!

Read Reviews

Always read reviews, especially on Google and Facebook. Look for the average rating number (up to 5 stars) and for how many reviews there are in total. Remember that even the most successful businesses will have some unhappy customers, especially in an industry like auto repair. Look for companies with the most 5-star reviews by volume.

Start Small

Don’t wait around for the worst-case scenario. Try to find a garage you like and trust before you have an emergency. Book an oil change or brake inspection. Get to know the company and feel them out first. See if you feel comfortable with the garage and vibe with their workmanship and professionalism.

Ask Questions

Don’t be afraid to ask the technician questions! A good, honest technician will be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you have and will be glad to educate you about your car and how to properly maintain it.
