Are you looking for “your guy,” that trusted mechanic who does quality work at an affordable rate? No one likes having car issues, but there’s just something about having a go-to auto repair shop when you’re having car problems that gives you peace of mind. However, to find that trusted mechanic, you have to weed out some of the not-so-great shops out there. Here are a few signs of a good auto mechanic, courtesy of our crew at Joe’s Service Department.
1. Years of Experience
Sooner or later, a bad mechanic’s reputation will catch up with him. But on the flip side, a quality mechanic is more likely to stand the test of time. So if you find a mechanic who has been working in Indianapolis for five or more years, you may want to give that car repair shop a second look.
2. Positive Reviews
In the age of Yelp, Google, and social media, you can find opinions out there on almost any business. While you can’t please everyone (every business will have some negative feedback), you do want to pay attention to what past customers have said about their experiences. Pay attention to what the majority is saying, and if it’s positive, then you may have found yourself a good auto mechanic.
Give heed to that car repair shop’s level of professionalism. Do they return your calls? Are you treated in a friendly and efficient manner? Are the mechanics on hand to answer your questions and explain what’s going on with your vehicle? Customer service is an important part of being a good mechanic, and if they fail in this area, then they aren’t the highest quality mechanic.
Don’t settle for less than good. In your search for “your mechanic,” be sure to keep Joe’s Service Department on your list of options.
