How To Interview Your Auto Technician Before Service

Auto technician interviewDoes your car require general maintenance or need repairs? Don’t leave the care of your automobile in the hands of just anyone. Make sure your car gets the professional attention it deserves at the hands of a highly qualified auto technician. Proper and timely car maintenance can keep your vehicle running for years, saving you the enormous expense of replacing it. When you take your vehicle to a new shop, talk to the auto specialist directly and ask the following questions.

1. Do you offer free estimates?

While not every auto shop will offer free estimates, many do and it’s a good thing to know upfront. If there will be a charge, request a quote before agreeing to have your car serviced. Don’t deal with technicians who insist that they aren’t able to provide this information until after they finish the work.

2. Have you worked on this make and model before?

It’s easy to assume that every auto technician is experienced with every make and model, but this simply isn’t the case. You should always inquire as to whether the shop has worked with your kind of automobile before. This is especially true if you require European auto repair.

3. What, if any, automotive associations do you belong to?

Many auto shops are privately owned and operated. So one way to ensure you receive the best possible service is to inquire about automotive associations. When a shop is recognized by an organization, such as Automotive Service Association or AAA, it means they follow a set of strict guidelines and meet certain compliance standards.
