How to Find a Reliable Auto Repair Shop

Next to your home, a vehicle is probably the most significant investment you’ll make. Like all big financial investments, you want to make sure you have reliable resources that can provide the proper care for your personal property. Just as you would only trust the repair or replacement of your home's furnace to someone who is licensed and trained to do the work, you want to find certified car repair professionals who are qualified to make the necessary repairs to your car. But how do you find a reliable auto repair shop among the hundreds of possible car care establishments out there?

First, don’t wait until your car breaks down and you’re forced to choose a repair shop. Ask friends and family for their recommendations. With a few auto shop recommendations in mind, further your research online. Check for reviews by other customers and any complaints listed with the BBB.

More importantly, start maintenance relationships with the shops you’re considering. Give them the opportunity to perform routine check-ups, oil changes, etc. Investigate the establishments to see if they’re kept neat and clean. Get to know the pricing structures, what kind of diagnostic equipment they use, what their customer service policies are, etc. Not only will the regular maintenance improve the performance of your car, it will give you time to become familiar with the shops, as well as their practices and policies, so you'll know if you want to use them for more significant repairs in the future.
