What to Look for When Choosing an Auto Repair Shop

Choosing the right repair shop is important. You’re trusting them to take care of your car and be honest about any repairs needed. Choosing the wrong shop can leave your car in poor shape, doing unnecessary repairs, and spending more money than you should. Before you choose an auto repair shop, look for these things to help you decide.

Good Online Reviews

The internet has made it easier than ever to get recommendations through online reviews. You could always ask your friends and family about their opinion on a shop, but online reviews come from a variety of people who have gotten different services done by the shop. However, be careful when looking at online reviews as some of them can be biased. Look for unbiased reviews on business review sites. 

ASE Certified Technicians

To become ASE certified, technicians must pass an ASE test as well as have at least two years of on the job training or one year of on the job training and possess a two-year degree in automotive repair. This certification is not easy. So, when a shop has ASE certified technicians, it means that they have extensive knowledge and experience with cars, so you can be sure your car is in the right hands. 

Honest Repairs

Some people have experience working with an auto shop that told them they needed repairs that were not necessary. Nobody wants to go through this. Look for an auto shop that will be honest and transparent about what your car needs. You can bring your car into shops to get opinions on what should be done. Afterward, compare what was said among all the shops to see if there were any discrepancies. 

Years of Experience

When it comes to your vehicle, you’ll want someone with years of experience to work on it. Check to see how long the repair shop has been in business. Additionally, don’t be afraid to ask the technicians at the shop how long they’ve been working there. For some people, five

 years is enough experience, for others, they’ll feel comfortable with someone with over ten years of experience. Only let the technicians with your preferred years of experience deal with your car.
