How to Find a Good Auto Mechanic
In a world where few people know their vehicle’s workings, it’s good to know how to find the right person to keep you up and running. With just a few tips, you’ll be driving comfortably for years to come.
- Some shops, typically fancy ones like dealerships, provide free shuttles. There are many non-expensive areas within short distances from train or bus stops–consider your safety to, from and at those, though. A cab ride to and from a shop in an inconvenient area may be well worth the money you can save on a repair. Occasionally one of the workers may offer you a lift. Call to ask about transit options before going.
- An insurer may sometimes waive “betterment” charges for replacing old parts that got broken if you agree to have aftermarket parts used. Ask about this if an insurer is paying for your repairs.
