Casey did an outstanding job in performing the pre-purchase inspection. He was extremely thorough, and patient and friendly in explaining the items he had found. I would recommend him, and YourMechanic in general, to anyone looking to get a thorough and honest pre-purchase inspection done. Great value for the price. Keep it up!!!
