I am very picky about my truck and Bret is the type of mechanic I would have work on my vehicles. I have worked on my vehicles most of my life and now prefer to have someone else do it. At this point Bret is the only mechanic I have tried that I have confidence in.


on October 01

Very likeable guy. He seems knowledgeable and trustworthy. I am unable to assess his ability because thus far he has only done an inspection.

Bret was great he was early and I was able to walk out give him my car keys and go back inside to take care of my kids I was able to trust him. He took care of the issue promptly. I appreciated the fact he came out on one of the hottest nights of the week. THANKS BRET.

Bret is extremely knowledgable, professional and friendly. He knew exactly what to test and what to replace to get my lights working again. I will definitely call on Bret in the future for any automotive issues.

This is my first time using YourMechanic and I have to say Bret made me a loyal customer! He came early and told me he was willing to wait if I needed more time for my appointment which was great, and started promptly on repairing my lights. He located the problem and now my lights are in working order, and he even replaced my bulb for free. The whole process took less than 30 minutes. Bret is such a nice guy, really knowledgeable and I will definitely come back to him for any of my repair needs as well as recommend him to everyone I know. I would give Bret more than 5 stars if I could, but I think it's safe to say that I am a very satisfied customer!

Very good. Did not try to sell me a service that I did not need. Also gave me options and did not just do the job without letting me know what was going to happen in the future.

Great experience! Bret doesn't beat around the bush and explains things in a way even non-car people will understand. Will definitely use Bret again.

Very professional and knowledgeable.


on July 08

He is not listening to me and recommending service that is NOT needed. I know this car and it's the inhibitor on the side of the transmission that is causing this issue, NOT the starter!!!!! Do not send this person to me ever again and don't send me mechanics that think they know better than the auto owner and aren't willing to listen!!!!!


on April 04

Very nice experience. Satisfied with your work at this point, would recommend. Thanks Bret
