Repair and Services

St. Louis auto repairIf your vehicle breaks down then you have to find a mechanic fast! Unfortunately finding an auto repair specialist isn’t always as easy as it sounds. You have to choose someone who can get your vehicle back to you quickly, but also offers you a good deal and great service. There are plenty of ways to find a great auto repair specialist but you should usually start by asking your family and friends. Chances are that they have used a mechanic in the area and they would probably be happy to recommend you to someone great. So how do you find the right mechanic? Check the following tips to find out.

Every STL auto repair specialist has a reputation and you can probably find it pretty easily. Ask your friends and family for recommendations, check the web, and even ask around at your local auto-parts store to see who’s got a good reputation and who doesn’t. Basically you want a mechanic who leaves happy customers, so that you will be happy too.

Consider whether or not the mechanic offers specialization. For example, if you have a BMW then you want to go to a St Louis auto mechanic who services only BMW. Specialization allows the person or company to have more experience with a single brand of car, and usually to have more parts on stock. Of course, you can go to any repair shop, but a specialized one is more likely to offer the best service for your vehicle.

 Compare Prices – Guess what! Not everyone offers the same prices. Consider calling around to ask what a vehicle checkup would cost, of if you know what’s wrong, what replacing that part would cost. Most local STL mechanics are happy to offer quotes, and all of them can tell you the price of parts right over the phone. Some mechanics might charge more for parts but you can figure this out in advance and avoid them. You may also be able to save money by choosing a mechanic who allows you to purchase your own parts if you know what is wrong.

Location – While it is relatively easy to drive a working vehicle to a mechanic who is halfway across town, it might not be so easy getting back. Unless you have friends or family willing to take you or you can get there via public transport, you want the mechanic to be as close to your house as possible. You can also consider finding a St. Louis auto repair specialist wiling to deliver your vehicle back to your home, although this is likely to be costly.

Speed – Speed is important, especially when it comes to your car. If one mechanic promises to have your car fixed in 24 hours then they are likely a better option than one that says in 3 days. While the first might charge a little more, you can usually expect to end up paying money for taxis or public transport if you do not have a car. Time is money, especially when it comes to transportation.

There are plenty of ways to find a great auto repair specialist but you should usually start by asking your family and friends. Chances are that they have used a mechanic in the area and they would probably be happy to recommend you to someone great.
