When your car or truck breaks down it’s an effort trying to figure out the best place to take it. There are auto repair shops on just about every corner in any local city. Some offer great workmanship and service while others do a bad job just to take your money.
They’re as sharp as a good used car salesman and can convince you of their superior service, when they actually do lousy work and don’t stand behind their guarantee.
Once you take your car or truck off their lot, you’ll notice some of the mechanical issues are still there. Actually, in many cases, the vehicle runs worse than it did before you brought it in to them.
You must do your research on auto repair shops to get your car fixed properly. You deserve the best when spending your hard-earned money on auto repair, so read the tips below on how to find the best copperfield auto repair in NW Houston Texas.
Gather information on 3 to 5 different repair shops. Check them out with the local and national better business bureau. The BBB isn’t always reliable, so you need to take it a step further. You can check them out on Angie’s List, but there is a membership fee.
Once you’ve done your research, take your car (if it’s running) to the 3 to 5 shops you have checked out. Get estimates from all five and tell them you want a detailed description of what needs to be fixed, the guarantee and a total price in writing.
Ask lots of questions, such as; how long will you need to leave your car, when can they get to it, and do they have ASE Certified technicians. Have them explain what is wrong with your vehicle and what needs to be done to fix it. Take notes so you can compare the different shops.
If you’re having a transmission problem and they say you need a new transmission, tell them you will be checking out more repair shops before you decide to let them work on your car. Sometimes, it’s just a small problem and they will try to take you for a ride with the whole ball of wax.
It’s happened to me more than once. Don’t let them roll over you. It’s your car and your wallet so don’t let them take control. You must do your homework if you want to find the best copperfield auto repair that will do a great job on your car or truck.
