For those who experience something wrong with their car for the very first time, it may be difficult to find a reliable mechanic or auto repair shop that you can trust.

Drivers are usually desperate so it’s vital that they find a shop and/or mechanic who will do a great job but at the same time, be affordable to the motorists so that they aren’t left with out-of-pocket expenses.

Most of today’s younger generation search for what they need by going online and using the internet to provide them with the answers they are looking for.

There is nothing wrong with that but it’s important to look at a shop’s reviews before going forward. In addition, customers will want to get any recommendations possible from someone they know personally.

It’s also important to check to see if the mechanic and auto repair shop are certified. Certification goes a long way in knowing that you’re working with someone that’s reliable.

In addition to internet and google reviews, individuals can research the company with the Better Business Bureau to certify that the company and mechanic don’t have any complaints against them.

One thing that can be forgotten during this very stressful time is warranty coverage. Always make sure to ask if the work needed on your vehicle is covered by whatever warranty you may have.

Another trick of the trade is to check with the Federal Trade Commission on information regarding service contracts and warranties.

Consumers will always look for:

  • Solid reviews online
  • Personal recommendations
  • Affordability
  • Location

The bottom line is that there is a sense of urgency when your vehicle, perhaps your only mode of transportation, stops working.
Do your research, find your comfort level, and ask as many questions as you need, to put yourself at ease when working with a mechanic or auto-repair shop.
