Tips For Getting The Most Out Of Car Repairs


Unless you only need an oil change or your tires rotated, going to a car repair shop can cost a pretty penny. Regardless of whether you choose a dealership, a corporately owned shop, or a local mechanic, you are going to have to pay for parts and labor. Each different type of shop has its pros and cons, and it will be up to you to decide what is most important to you. However, here are a few tips to use while making your decision that may even the playing field a bit.

Get Estimates

You should get at least three different estimates of the work that needs to be done. Make sure the different parts needed are listed as well as the labor hours and costs. You can then go over these to see if there are things that are not absolutely necessary and will lower the final cost of the repairs.

Call Your Insurance Company

You may be surprised to find that some of the repairs are covered by your insurance policy. Even if they are not, an insurance company will be able to tell you if the estimates are good and fair. They may also have a few recommendations of the work needed or be able to point you to a shop that can do it at a better price.

Check Junk Yards

It is possible to find at least some of the needed parts at a junkyard. While a dealership or corporate shop may not allow you to bring the parts for the repair a local mechanic may. If you have no luck at a junkyard you can also check online car parts sites or auction sites. While these parts may be used or possibly refurbished, they are often good enough to be used.

Get Referrals

Talk with friends and family to find out about the different repair shops in town. They can tell you if a certain shop does good work or not. They may also know a shop that is giving a special discount on work.

You need your vehicle to get to and from work and take care of many other chores in your life. Take a bit of time to seek out the best option for you. When the work is done well and at a reasonable price, be sure to keep their contact information so you can tell your friends and also go back to them the next time you need car repair services.
