If your car or truck is more than a few years old or you're sick of the inflated rates your car dealership makes you pay, you need to look for a local auto repair shop that can take care of all your car's repairs.

Sure you could try getting repairs at those cheaper national repair shops that "specialize" in various auto work and maintenance. You've seen them... companies like Meineke, Jiffy Lube, Midas etc., and a few tire shops. But national oil & lube and brake outfits rarely possess experience to truly trouble-shoot issues with your car. These companies are best for small problems in a pinch like putting in a new battery, fixing a broken hose, replacing your wipers or performing a standard oil change.

What you should look for is a mechanic you can trust for most, if not all of your car or truck issues. When you find a dependable local mechanic you will not only pay less, but you'll create a rapport with their staff. Your neighborhood mechanic will learn about your car, making repairs more convenient in the future. In addition, when something goes wrong with your car you won't need to decide who can fix it. Your first place for all your repairs will be set - your dependable car repair shop.

So what should you look for in a mechanic? To start, try research on the internet for your local area. As an example, if you're in the Lancaster, PA area, try searching for auto repair lancaster or lancaster pa auto repair. You might also type car services lancaster pa.

Your online results will likely lead you to nearby auto repair shops. First try to find out if any of them are close to your home or job. Having a local repair shop makes getting your car fixed more convenient every time. If you find a few nearby locations, stop by their shop, talk to the staff and see how comfortable you feel. Then ask neighbors, co-workers or friends what shop they use for car repairs.

Research the track record of any mechanics you find. How long have they been in business? Are they online? Does the company offer a past client list or have customer comments on their website?

Lastly, try to find a Lancaster, PA car service garage that takes care of most basic services such as:

General Auto Repair & Simple Services

An Oil Change near Lancaster, PA

Lancaster, Pennsylvania Auto Inspection


If you happen to be fortunate, you might even find a vehicle repair garage that also offers paintless dent repair around Lancaster, PA and/or Lancaster county auto glass repair. Knowing an establishment that offers both or either of these services is extremely beneficial.

Some digging around and networking with friends and family will assist you in discovering a reliable mechanic that will accommodate you and your car. Having an establishment that takes care of you is having peace of mind.
