In order to choose a reliable mechanic, make sure to thoroughly research the automotive shop, check its credentials and use reviews to verify whether or not the shop is reliable. Use websites, such as AngiesList.com, which allows users to post reviews about any services done by a local mechanic.
The easiest way to get started is to look for a mechanic or automotive shop that specializes in the specific make and model of the vehicle. This usually helps narrow down the search to reputable mechanics. Also, make sure the shop specializes in electrical work. In these cases, brake and quick lube places will not fit the bill, so look for Automotive Service Excellence-certified mechanics. After finding a specific shop, use review sites to check for reviews or anything particular about the mechanics.
Check the distance and convenience of the shop. Ensure that the shop can be accessed easily on a normal workday. Lastly, make sure to ask about warranties. Electrical work can sometimes be tedious and results in other components becoming damaged. Make sure the warranty covers all the repairs done to the vehicle.
