4 Ways to Make Car Repair Easier
Whether your brakes have failed, or you need a new air conditioner filter, taking your car to the shop can be a daunting task. Auto repair has the potential to be expensive and time-consuming. It can also be a challenge to figure out alternative transportation while your car is in the shop, so you don’t have to completely rearrange your schedule.
However, you can make the entire auto repair experience easier with research, planning, and a little help from Savannah Car Rental:
- Explore Your Options
Don’t take your car to the first shop in the phonebook or the first listing on Angie’s List. Whether you need routine maintenance or a major repair (like brakes, transmission, etc.), it’s worth it to take the time to explore your options so you can find the best repair shop for you, your car, and your budget.
When researching repair shops, be sure to read reviews and consider ratings, like ratings from the Better Business Bureau. Compare prices for routine maintenance and be sure to consider how long various repair shops anticipate a larger job to take.
- Gather Multiple Quotes
Gathering quotes from multiple auto repair shops is most important if your car needs major repairs. Consult with several auto repair shops; describe what repairs your car will need done, and request an estimated price, as well as how long the job will take. Remember that the shop’s location, hours, size, and number of employees all may play a role in the price of auto repair.
- If possible, plan auto repair around your schedule.
If possible, plan for your car to be in the shop at a time that is convenient for you. Schedule appointments and maintenance on days you have off from work, or during weeks that you have more flexibility in your schedule. Doing so will make sure the chore of auto repair doesn’t interfere with your obligations to work and family.
