So you’ve been in an accident and need to have your car repaired. Ensure you’re getting service you can trust by remembering these tips for what to ask at the shop and signs of good (and not so good) mechanics.
Be wary of scare stactics. If the auto repair shop is saying things like “I wouldn’t drive this another mile” you may want to consider getting a second opinion.
Visible certifications from AAA or ASE are signs of a reputable shop. A good mechanic will explain your repair options thoroughly and keep a clean shop.
A shop you should be wary of might ask you to sign blank authorization forms or may try to sell you unnecessary things like a transmission flush.
Meet the mechanics! You should be able to easily talk to the people who will be working on your car. This helps to develop a trusting relationship.
