Auto Repair Near Me
Have you ever searched for “auto repair near me”? It’s a quick way to find a local auto repair shop, but the problem is to decide which of the shops you find is worthy of your time and money.
To get full benefit of the “auto repair near me” results, you need to know what is important to you – and does the shop you found offer what you want. Apart from the obvious issue – can they work on the vehicle you own – there are four other issues that are worth considering.
One of the most important questions is warranty – even though manufacturers have made great strides in the quality of spare parts, defective spare parts do happen. So does the shop you fond during “auto repair near me” search offer warranty? And if it does, how long is it? At Adams Autoworx we offer industry leading 3 years / 36,000 miles warranty on parts and labor. If a part fails within three years of the repair, we will replace it under warranty.
Another big issue is quality of the parts – does the shop offer Original Equipment or the same quality parts? Shops that offer long warranties can do so because they use high quality parts – often produced by the same factory that made the original parts for the car manufacturer.
Third issues is customer service – is the office clean, is the staff friendly, and will they offer you a complimentary shuttle/Uber/Lyft ride if you have to leave your car at the shop? At Adams Autowrox in Castro Valley we offer free local Uber/Lyft so you can go about your day while we work on your car.
Fourth question – how technologically advanced is the shop? Modern cars are full of computers and sensors – are technicians trained to use the latest tools to access your vehicle’s onboard computers? If the website is silent on this question – that’s a cause for concern. You can also get a pretty good idea just by talking to the service advisor – do they offer digital vehicle inspections? Can they email/text you inspection results and pictures? If a shop offers digital vehicle inspections, chances are they are staying on the cutting edge of technology. At Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley (as well as at our Albany and Walnut Creek locations), we not only equip our technicians with cutting-edge electronic tools, but we also provide them with regular training so they can increase their expertise and are ready to service and repair even the most sophisticated vehicles.
