Mechanic Shops - How To Find The Best One

There are dozens of mechanic shops in the Kitchener - Waterloo area, so how can someone choose the one that is right for them? In this post we follow Lily, a single woman who recently went through a series of steps that helped her to choose the best mechanic shop for her needs. Lily examined numerous websites, checked google reviews asked friends for references, and met with the staff at the auto repair shop before making the decision to bring her car to Hansma Automotive.

Check Websites

Lily carried out a quick google search of the internet for mechanic shop Kitchener, bringing up a list of auto repair facilities in the area. She examined the first few shops, looking for professional, well laid out websites. Lily believes that a professional website is probably a reflection of a professionally run business. Hansma Automotive was one of the highest ranked sites of all auto shops in the K-W.

Google Reviews

Next Lily took a look at the Google reviews for a number of the mechanic shops. Unsurprisingly, the higher ranked businesses also generally had the most and best Google reviews. Hansma Automotive ranked highest with a 4.8 out of a possible 5 based on the largest number of reviews - an astonishing 65! 

Ask For References

Lily then asked some of her colleagues at work which mechanic shop they used and whether or not they would recommend them. Strangely, some stated that they would not recommend the mechanic shop they used but did not know who else to suggest. Others provided good references, and Lily even found that a couple of her workmates had been very happy with the service provided by Hansma, mentioning that they had even written a testimonial stating their satisfaction.

Visit The Mechanic Shop

Finally, Lily took the step of visiting Hansma Automotive to see what kind of customer service she would receive. As her car required a routine oil change she felt it would be a good time to try them out. When she arrived she was pleased to find that she was given exactly the kind of service that was promised.

Lily's car was booked in for an appointment later that day and the work was done quickly and professionally. Lily left the mechanic shop happy in knowing that she had found an auto mechanic that she could trust. Now, like many other satisfied customers, she was happy to recommend Hansma Automotive and booked her car in for detailing the following week.
