Is Your New Car Due It First Service? Part 2
What to Consider When Looking for a Reputable Auto Repair Center
The next level of service is provided in local chain or private garages. Make sure to look for any certificates of training, usually seen in the waiting area or behind a counter. Since a shop is not associated with any particular automobile manufacturer, mechanics are free to use any kind of after market or salvaged parts when possible. Labor charges will be less, since a mechanic will only charge on clock hours instead of the official estimated time of repairs that are listed in repair manuals.
One of the cheapest type of repair shops is the shade tree mechanic. Some people just like tinkering on cars as a hobby, so you should try to negotiate a deal with an amateur repair garage if you are looking to save money. If you do not need your car repaired immediately and you’re not overly concerned about quality workmanship, amateur mechanics is one option to think about.
