Taking Too Long With Auto Repair?

TAKING TOO LONG WITH AUTO REPAIRS?

Having your vehicle at the mechanics for days on end can be stressful; suddenly you have to find another way to work, or if your vehicle is an asset to your business, this can have a negative impact on your profit margin. The sooner your vehicle returns to full operational status the better, and these are ways in which you can help your mechanic in achieving that sooner. 

GUIDELINES TO DECREASE THE TIME YOUR CAR SPENDS IN THE SHOP

 1. Keep your records in order:

Keep a record of every maintenance performed on your vehicle- and keep them in your car. Well-kept records can be essential to diagnose the problem correctly the first time; saving you time and money.

 

2. Bookmark your owner’s manual:

Knowing where to find relevant information at a moment’s notice is important. You’ll know where the specific trim level is, and where to find the vehicle identification number- information the technician will need. It can help you identify causes when trouble arises- you may even be able to quickly deduce that your “problem” might not warrant a trip to the mechanic.

 

3. Communicate properly:

The more information you are able to give a mechanic, and the more accurately you are able to convey said information, the faster a mechanic will be able to precisely diagnose the problem. It is a good idea to write down ahead of time what symptoms your car is experiencing; note specific sounds, smells and sensations, when and how often they occur, and where you think they might be coming from.

 

4. Make yourself available:

Be sure to leave your contact details with the shop where you can be contacted and respond promptly. If a mechanic cannot reach you in order to approve a repair, your car will remain in the shop for longer than intended.

 

 


By implementing these guidelines you can decrease the time your car spends in the shop and make your mechanic’s life so much easier.
