If you own a car, truck, SUV, Minivan or whatever your desired vehicle is, you know all-to-well how challenging it can be to find and book quality auto repair and maintenance service.
Let’s go through these challenges sequentially – there is the difficulty in finding a reputable mechanic or auto repair shop that can service your vehicle make and model. Will the shop you select deliver quality service at a fair price and not take advantage of you? The level of quality service and pricing can vary significantly from shop-to-shop. There are many automotive repair centers (shops) that deliver high quality service at a fair price – the challenge is finding one near you!
What is your level of urgency for service? Do you need same-day service because your vehicle is out of commission, and you need your vehicle back ASAP? Can you wait a day? A few days? A week? The issue of limited availability for an appointment slot is always hit or miss. Some shops are booked a few days out or in some cases, more than a week. Many shops have the capacity to take same day walk-ins – the challenge is finding one near you.
You finally get your appointment date and time. Good. Next is a matter of transparency regarding the repair process. How long will the service take? Are the parts available? Do I need to drop off my vehicle for the day? Can I wait onsite? Will the service cause an inconvenience and disrupt your daily routine? Not knowing how long the repair will take could lead to mistrust and potential misunderstanding between you and the repair shop. The challenge is finding a shop that does a great job at communicating – they exist.
