Updated on June 7, 2012

Driving a car on a regular basis also needs you to give sufficient attention to its maintenance and repair. This way, your car can continue to give you the service that you expect from it. This needs you to be in touch with the best auto repair shops, who can attend to any breakdowns or regular maintenance at costs that are not inhibiting.

Finding the Best Auto Repair Shops

It is best to look around for an auto repair shop as soon as you acquire a car. This way you will not be desperate when you are actually faced with a breakdown. It is best to inquire about such facilities with friends, neighbors and the social circle you move in. This way you can be sure of getting the right service. Give importance to recommendations from persons whose cars look obviously well cared for.

Once you have made a list, from the references, shortlist them according to your convenience. Visit each of them to be sure of the facilities that are on offer, the staff and expertise that they have and the equipment that they have. Repair shops that are busy and yet have a neat well cared for appearance will be the ones that will take good care of your car.

Inquire about their payment and credit facilities and any other conveniences like pickup and delivery which can matter if you lead a very busy life. Ask about their emergency services and the charges that they make for such attendance. Make sure that they have adequate office staff who can attend to your requirements for insurance, especially if claims are to be preferred.

Be Especially Vigilant when You Give a Car for the First Time

Once you have decided on the best auto repair shops for attending to your car, send the car to the shop you have decided on for the first maintenance or tune up job. Inspect your car thoroughly before and after this first visit. Make sure that your car has been well looked after and does not come back to you with some extra scratches on the body or tears in your upholstery inside. This will indicate that the proper care has been taken. It will also not be remiss, to check that no parts that you have not authorized, are replaced. Be sure that any repairs or changes suggested are really necessary and not just ploys to increase the repair bill.

Check the running of the car before you take delivery after repairs, and make sure that you are satisfied with all the work carried out. Also insist on completely understanding the need for any repairs or changes suggested by the repair shop. Ensure that parts that are replaced are shown to you.

The best auto repair shops are the ones that not only have competent technical staff, but also friendly and courteous staff both on and off the shop floor. They are the ones who will not grudge your getting alternative quotations for repair jobs from their competitors. They will be sure of the service that they offer, and thus expect a satisfied customer to return to them, whenever their cars need attention.
