Ben was great. He was polite, arrived early, and took extra time to make sure issues were fixed where and demonstrate he knew more about the vehicles being worked on than prior mechanics. Ben is going to be my "go to guy" for future service work. I was very impressed.

Ben provided a very detailed report which assisted in purchase of a classic car....Chevy El Camino V8 396 SS. Excellent response time on a short notice. Thanks Ben. -DaMarcus

Incredibly nice and took the time to show me the problem, including comparison pictures between my unit and what a new unit should look like.


on September 27

I had an AC that only worked part of the time: the fix turned out to be something simple, but I'm confident that, were it to have been something complex, Ben would have found the problem and fixed it. He seems like he is very good at what he does, and I wouldn't hesitate to call him again.

Ben was proffesional, fast and left me with a powerful running AC system on my car. He finished way before the given time frame. Will definelty use his services in the future.


on September 06

Ben was incredibly quick and professional. He spent no more than 20 minutes to figure out the cause of the problem, and arrived even earlier than expected. He was done even before the appointment had to start. I would spend much much more time and money with a regular mechanic. Highly recommend!


on September 07

Ben was extremely knowledgeable, nice, and performed the service quickly. Top notch veteran I will definitely request again. Great experience


on March 03

Showed up on time and was very professional and experienced. Did in hour what would have taken me 3 or more hours to complete. Could not be happier. Will be calling Ben for all future needs.

Ben was excellent!!!! He was earlier than the appointment time. He is very friendly and professional and I would live for you guys to send him back out on another repair job for me. As far as the company, love, love, love. Thanks for offering this kind of professional business 😊😊😊😊!!!!

Ben was punctual and very courteous and informative. He explained everything that was wrong with my vehicle. He is one of those rare people who displays rare old world ethics. He has a Teacher's mentality. I would refer him to all my friends and family.


on October 25

Ben was great with his service and communication. He called me well in advance to let me know that my appointment was rescheduled with him. He arrived on-time and left very clean. He was quite helpful with his tips on how to keep your car in good condition and what precautions should I take to ensure that I don't run into any issues. Overall, a great experience with Ben and I hope to work with him soon.

Without question, I have found my new 'go-to' mechanic! Ben is everything you would want… He's courteous, knowledgeable, professional and friendly… he called ahead to let me know that he was on his way and to confirm the appointment… Something these days that does seem to get a bit lost, and I greatly appreciate the courtesy… since I was heading out on a business trip, I needed the service done quickly, and Ben more than accomplished that… scheduling my appointment was easy, and definitely, saved me some time… Great service, great mechanic, and now, a very satisfied customer… thanks again, Ben!

Thanks for your help Ben. I will use this service again. This was my first time using the service. My first scheduled mechanic didn't show up, but when I contacted customer service they found another mechanic right away and had Ben here in an hour. I want to thank Ben for his speedy and professional work.


on March 02

All I can say is amazing!!!! He showed up 10 minutes early and ready to work. Ben gave clear details of what he was going to be working on, he went over and beyond to ensure he provided great service.

He was early. And that was a good thing. For I was concerned about the weather. He is professional. Knowledgeable. And a quick worker. I LOVE this car. And I don't trust it to anyone. And I really if possible would like for Ben to be the one to respond. When I need auto work. If possible.

I tried another mobile mechanic service, and that mechanic told me that I had a blown head gasket, and the repairs would run $1,300! Within 20 minutes Ben found the problem and had my vehicle running...all it was is the rotor button screw had come loose and the rotor was not engaging. So $70 vs $1300! Needless to say, I'm a VERY happy camper! So many people today will try to take advantage of seniors, especially if they are on disability. But the honesty and integrity of this company is par excel lance! I would encourage anyone to use this service, instead of going to a shop or trusting shady backyard mechanics!

Ben was on time and extremely thorough. I am impressed by the level of detail taken during the diagnostic visit and everything was emailed to me in a very timely manner. He was pleasant and knowledgeable to speak with. I highle recommend this service.

Extremely happy to have my f150 back in proper working order. Ben was awesome. I received a text to let me know he was on his way, then again when he arrived. He correctly diagnosed my vehicle and was done with the rear rotors and pads before I knew it. This guy really knows his way around a vehicle and I have already recommended him/your mechanic.com to others. I honestly don't think I will be using traditional repair shops again. Thanks Ben!
