When you go to your doctor you trust them to help identify and fix the problem. You trust them to identify and help and you rely on them for the same reason you’ve placed your trust in them. That being said, mechanics should be no different. You need to find a good workshop and a good mechanic to handle your car servicing, diagnosis and repairs.

When picking a mechanic don’t underestimate the power of word of mouth. Talk to your friends, family and neighbours and find out about local mechanics they trust and rely on and then pay the mechanics a visit. Once at the workshop of your choice, find the head mechanic or workshop manager and ask them the following questions to determine if they are the mechanical workshop for you:

  • Are you affiliated with an automotive association?

  • Do you have insurance coverage?

  • What credentials do your technicians have?

  • Does your garage specialise in a particular type of car? A particular type of work?

  • What would you do if it was your car?

  • Do you charge an inspection fee?

  • Do I have an option of choosing new or aftermarket parts?

  • Can I get an itemised invoice and a detailed report of the work done on my car?

  • Will a courtesy car be supplied?

  • What payment policies and guarantees do you offer?

  • What warranty is offered on new parts
