Auto Repair Shop
Find Reviews of Local Auto Repair Shops Online – There are many places online that allow users to post their reviews of local businesses. These reviews can be helpful if there are a lot of them. However, not all review sources are the same. I have had experiences with some local businesses that had rave reviews online, but when I tried their services out, I was disappointed. The reason for that is, that some sites are very easy for businesses and individuals to manipulate the reviews to slant too far one way or the other. When there are only a small handful of reviews posted, you can bet that they might not be too accurate.
Look For The Reputable Review Sources – There are sources online that monitor the review process and make sure that all of the reviews are legitimate and honest. These review sources usually require a paid membership fee.
These fees are usually very small and pay themselves off over and over if you do make use of the service. You can save money and time by researching auto repair shops before you take your car in. That way you can be sure that you are using a shop that will be honest in their work and charge you only reasonable fees.
Start With a Small Repair Job – If you can, if you have a repair that can wait, see if the shop will do a small job for you first, just to try out their service. If you need a new radiator, maybe start by having them do an oil change first and see how you feel about their service then.
