Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. When searching for a Automotive Technician to work on your vehicle or investment, find out if what is needed is something they have serviced or repaired before. Find out there guarantee behind there work. See if they have professional business cards to provide to you along with receipts upon completion. Some of these questions will scare a lot of backyard and shade tree non certified wanna be mechanics just trying to get over on you and take your hard earned money! Nobody likes throwing hard earned money away and most likely causing more problems than what the original issue the vehicle was having in the first place.... We offer this- if we can't repair it you don't pay us! Plain and simple.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. The inside secret about being an Automotive Technician is , knowing how and what each individual part is supposed to be doing and knowing your DTC'S ! You can have 6 codes in your computer and only 1 part is causing all 6 codes, knowledge and experience is very important when servicing todays computerized vehicles!
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. Be straight to the point, explain to the technician exactly what you heard, smelled, felt, and seen, when the problem happened, and ask the tech is this something they have worked on before? What type of crudentials ( certifications do they have?) What kind of guarantee do you carry with there work? How much will something like this cost me ? And the most important question you should ask is - will you perform any type of repair on my vehicle with out my consent or agreement with you ?
