Foolproof Tips to Finding a Good Mechanic

The absolute number one thing you want to get from your mechanic is good communication.

If you have a mechanic who can articulate exactly what is going on with your vehicle in terms you are able to understand you are on a winner.

This is a sign that the mechanic you are dealing with knows his stuff and more importantly does not mind taking the time to share.

Credentials can be a tricky thing to check. Usually if you take your car to a dealership or large branded company, they will have their credentials hanging on a wall. Credentials that have been presented to them by the dealership or head office.

A serious mechanic who knows his business has credentials that talk. If he has been in the business for many years and is still there, that is a good sign. He can probably boast to having the same crew with him for many years as well.

Being an authorised repairer from insurance companies such as Suncorp, AAMI, Allianz Insurance, and AMP etc. is also a good indicator of trust. Companies such as this do not waste their time with shonky mechanics.

Likewise fleet companies such as Fleetcare and S G Fleet only pick reliable and trustworthy mechanics to service their vehicles.

If you go into the workshop and see empty oil cans or old tyres laying around – it could mean they are too busy to clean up or maybe just don’t take pride in their work or workplace. Go with your gut. A quick conversation will set you on the right course.

Finally, you can’t go past a good recommendation. If a friend or family member recommends a mechanic to you, you know you can trust them.
