Finding an Auto Repair Specialist
By: Luke Shaff ~ 12/29/2016

How to Find an Auto Repair Specialist?  Unfortunately, it happens to everyone.  Even the best automobiles require tune-ups.  Whether you're having brake problems, want your engine checked, or need an oil change, you'll want to take your car to an auto repair specialist you can trust.  Use the tips listed below to help pick the best auto shop in your area.

1. Ask Family and Friends for Referrals

One of the best ways to find a reliable auto repair specialist is to ask for referrals from family and friends.  Most people who own a car can offer you a recommendation.  Take referrals from friends you know well; they would never intentionally point you in the wrong direction.

2. Research Auto Repair Specialists Online

Many good auto technicians today have websites. Take some time to research various repair shops in your area.  Pay close attention to the services each offers, so you don't waste time driving to one only to find out it can't perform the maintenance you need.

3. Read Customer Reviews and Testimonials

Reviews and testimonials can tell you a lot about an auto repair specialist.  Make sure to read through these carefully before committing to a new shop.  It's also completely acceptable to call the company and request referrals from previous customers.

4. Check for and Verify Certifications and Awards

As someone who cares about your car, you don't want to trust just anyone to fix it.  Verify that the car service and repair shop you're considering is the best around by looking at the company's history.  Is it certified and has it received any awards recently?  If you can't find this information online, don't hesitate to call and ask.
