When it comes to car repairs that’s one job that you want done by a professional. Need help finding a qualified auto repair shop? Let’s take a look at what to consider when searching for an auto repair shop.
“When You Visit an Auto Repair Shop
You don’t want your first visit to an auto repair service to be when your car can barely make it down the street. Emergencies could cause you to be hasty, so you want to contact a company before there is a need for service.
Check Online Materials
Once friends, BBB recommendations and online reviews point you in the direction of a specific auto repair service, you should check out the business’s online materials. Use a search engine to see what the business posted on its website or public forums.
Online materials should offer the company’s history, a map to its location, contact information and certifications. Be on the lookout for businesses that go the extra mile by posting introductions to staff members and articles about car care tips.
Inspect the Premises
You can make initial contact through the phone but you really should walk the premises before you need care. In-person visits give you a feel for the atmosphere of the organization. You want to find an auto repair service where everybody’s busy and you don’t see any hazardous or inefficient conditions.
The first thing you should see when you walk through the door are certificates hanging in plain view. The Auto Blog says a quality shop will have accreditation from Approved Auto Repair, the International Auto Technicians Association and the ASA. The care service should also be a member of the BBB, the Society of Automotive Engineers and Automotive Service Professionals.” To read the entire article click here.
