How to Choose the Right Mechanic

Get to Know More About Your Vehicle

The first step is crucial and it's even important that you go through with it even if you're not searching for a mechanic at the moment: get to know more about your vehicle. Even if you aren't the biggest vehicle/mechanics enthusiast, having a better idea of how your vehicle performs normally can be incredibly helpful. That's why you need to pay attention to it and notice its sounds, its movements, and more, so you can identify any issues. It's also suggested that you read your owner's manual thoroughly to find more information about it.

Search for Recommendations

Whenever you have a problem you need help with, you probably turn to friends and family for guidance in solving it. Well, this doesn't have to be any different: ask for recommendations from those close to you. If you trust them and they trust a mechanic, you're on the right track. However, it's suggested that you surf the Internet to find reviews on any mechanic you're going to work with. Through online reviews, you'll learn more about their work and experience. Moreover, you'll get a better idea of who they are and if they would be a good fit for you and your needs.

Look for Official Validation

Yes, having your friend's/family's recommendation is nice and all. However, you shouldn't hang such an important decision like this solely on their word. Nowadays, there are a slew of certificates, organizations, and other official entities that can validate the mechanic you want to work with. For example, they may be certified with the Automotive Service Excellence, or they may be affiliated to the AAA. These stamps of approval can mean that you're on the right track.

Do Your Homework

Let's imagine that you've found a mechanic that your friends and family know and love, has great reviews online, and has all of the official validation. Your search isn't over just yet. You should take your vehicle to them to get an evaluation and an estimate. Then, once you have that information, do your homework. Research your vehicle's condition and  compare prices with similar auto shops in the area. This will guarantee your vehicle will be taken care of properly, and will reduce the risk of you being ripped off

Take a Look Around Their Auto Shop

There are still a few things you need to do before you can hand over your complete trust, your money, and your vehicle to the mechanic. One thing, for example, is to take a look around their shop. Doing so can shed a clearer light on what type of mechanic this person is. For instance, if they have a clean auto shop, with updated machinery, and an appropriate space, you can imagine that they are responsible and trustworthy.

Begin With Baby Steps

By this point, you should have a better idea of what the mechanic is like and if they're trustworthy or not. Still, before they can become your official mechanic, you need to take baby steps. Basically, this means that you should take your vehicle in to get some minor maintenance (for example, you can ask to get its synthetic oil changed or to have a routine inspection done). In any case, if you see that they work well, in a timely manner, and in a just price point, you can continue depositing your trust into this mechanic.

Ask Them Questions

This last tip may seem obvious, but it's worth mentioning nonetheless. If you have your doubts about the mechanic, simply ask them. Hearing their response, as well as how they responded and their willingness to communicate with you, will give you a more clues as to what kind of person and mechanic they are. Moreover, during your conversation, you can sense the chemistry you have and decide if they are the right fit for you.
