It’s very tricky finding a trustworthy mechanic shop for transmission maintenance and transmission service. If you want your vehicle to last for the long haul you really need a trustworthy mechanic shop. We don’t mind whether you go with our mechanic shop or another, but the reliability of your vehicle is really important to us so this article offers some guidelines on how to find a mechanic shop you can last with long-term.
Ask your community
The first step is asking around. Ask your friends, family, coworkers etc. whether they’ve worked with a mechanic shop recently and is there one they can recommend? So many of our own customers come to us through word-of-mouth so we know that this system works.
A quick search on Google can yield some excellent results and also help you find the mechanic shops in your neighborhood. Try looking online for some testimonials. Read what customers have said about each mechanic shop. Check for any flag of any negative behavior such as bad customer service skills, sloppy work, unreliability or inefficiency.
Have some questions ready
We also suggest asking the mechanic shops your interest in some questions about the kind of work they do. Here are some suggestions:
- How long have you been in business?
- What is the range of services offered?
- What are your qualifications and certifications?
- What do your best customers say about you?
- What percentage of your customers are repeat customers?
- What are your prices and how do these compare with your local competition?
- How quickly do you turn around your business?
- What kind of warranty do you offer?
- How close are your estimates to the actual bill?
- Do you offer a ride to work or other places I need to go when my vehicle is in your shop?
Try them out
Next, we suggest actually trying out the mechanic shop to see how they do. Pay attention to how close the cost was to the actual quote. Was the waiting area clean and neat? Were they courteous, friendly and respectful? Was the service reasonably priced? Did the vehicle run well after? Were you actually happy with the end result?
Some parting advice
We also strongly suggest shopping for a trustworthy mechanic shop before you actually have car trouble. The reason being: it’s much easier to make a decision and to think straight when your vehicle is running well rather than when you’re emotional from the stresses of your car not working. Choosing a trustworthy mechanic shop is done much more efficiently and accurately when you’re feeling decisive.
