Everyone wants a good mechanic. Because lets’ face it – if you don’t much about cars, a disreputable mechanic can cost you a lot of money. But how do you find a good mechanic, particularly if you are new in town?
1. Stop into a shop and meet the owner. Talk to him or her. Look for certifications.
2. Look for affiliations with reputable organizations, like AAA
3. Take notice of cleanliness and organization.
4. Ask around. Word of mouth is the single best source of information you have. Ask for references.
5. Look for letters and cards from grateful customers posted at the shop.
6. Look for a neighborhood shop that has been in business for many years. Shoddy business practices can give a short-term gain but generally don’t lead to long-term success.
7. Start looking before your car breaks down. When your car breaks down you are not going to have the time to find a good mechanic. Start doing your research now.
