Arrived on-time, completed the job fairly quickly. Explained what was done and what needs to be done in the future. I would definitely recommend Chris' service and would definitely use it again.

Chris was very professional! Made me feel at ease, since I know nothing about cars. The job was completed in a timely matter. I'm very satisfied with the job he did. Thank you!!

I booked a mechanic for a pre-purchase inspection. Chris arrived early, was very professional, and thoroughly explained all of the problem areas on the car. Many thanks!

Needed a new battery for my car. Chris was on time and very professional. He installed my new battery, did a sweep inspection of my car and recommend the next service to be perform.


on June 16

Chris showed up early and performed a thorough evaluation of my car. He expertly diagnosed the issue and made some service recommendations. The convenience of having Chris come to my house saved me so much time (by not having to tow my car to a garage) and money, since YourMechanic is a much more reasonable diagnostic cost than going to a bricks and mortar mechanic. Thank you Chris!


on June 06

On time (early even), quick, efficient, friendly. Pointed out other areas of need aside from the oil change. Would definitely recommend Chris for more services.

Chris is great. He told me that I had to change the front tires instead of rotating them, and gave me tips to buy them as cheap as possible. Thank you!


on July 12

Very professional! Showed up early, finished in half the time, and provided multiple recommendations for future maintenance.

Chris was very professional and helpful. Figured out which part was faulty and it was something easy to find and install.

Chirs is awesome, he provide me more than the service but also other issues on the car. He is honest and very fast. I would definitely recommend working with Chris


on August 03

This was simply a fantastic experience, Chris showed up and took care of everything, everything was transparent and Chris explained what he was doing. Highly recommendable - While Chris was working on my car I was working upstairs, no wait time, no downtime. Just perfect


on January 31

Chris was STELLAR. I had made an appointment for 2 vehicles - and initially, it wasn't possible for a single mechanic to perform the service for both. However, when Chris showed up - he let me know that he'd be doing the service on both vehicles. Not sure if Chris or the team @ Your Mechanic had something to do with it- but THANKS! Chris was thorough, efficient and you could tell he was definitely an expert. All this - and a friendly, professional and timely guy as well. I'd hire Chris again - ANYTIME!


on January 31

This is the first time I've used Your Mechanic - and I can definitely say that it's AMAZING!!! Chris met (actually exceeded) my expectations. He reached out to let me know when he was on his way - and he actually was a bit early. Communication was excellent -and so was the service I had completed. Chris was friendly, very knowledgable and professional (and this was after having to complete the service in the rain!!) Next time I'll have a garage space for you Chris!! Thanks for a great experience - I appreciate it.


on August 04

Chris confirmed with a text that he was available and would be arriving earlier than scheduled which after being kept waiting for 3 hours in a dealership the day before was a very positive first impression. Chis was friendly and professional. He explained the process and was done sooner than the estimated time scheduled—also a positive. Even though Chris worked in my driveway the area was left spotless, no packing, drips, or stains and there was no indication that mechanical work had occurred. The work was done at a cost 46% less than the dealer had quoted, in less time than the dealer claimed it would take, and at a time and place of my convenience. I would schedule future​ work with Chris should the need arise.

Chris was all ready with parts he guessed my car might need, and got my car running again in about 20 min, without even needing a second appointment. Great experience! I felt so happy to not have to deal with getting my car to a dealership somehow. Definitely the best car repair experience I've had. So convenient and quick.


on April 03

Chris called and came way early to the appointment because he was in the area already in the area. He was very professional and got everything done in about an hour.

Chris was perfect, on time, totally professional and did the work quickly and perfectly...120% satisfied..! I just hope they send him again next time!


on May 05

Chris is a very great mechanic. He showed up early to our appointment and was very familiar with my car. After I described what was wrong with it (not starting), he thoroughly checked my engine for every possibility. Afterwards, he clearly explained what he checked and described what was wrong with my car. I thought it had something to do with the fuel system, but he found that it was actually the crank shaft sensor. I would have never found that out without his help! If he's your mechanic, you can be sure to trust him with your car.

Chris arrived early and finished his work faster than expected. He is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely like to have him back when necessary.

BMW 330Ci
on July 22

For the better part of a month, I’d been panicking over my 2002 BMW 330ci, which had basically lost all power, so it was just sitting in my garage. Towing it to a shop for diagnostic testing was an option, but then I’d be stuck in the event projected repair costs exceeded the car’s worth (or even half of its worth). Being stuck sucks, so I decided on exercising another option. After reading a bunch of reviews and doing some research on Your Mechanic and their team of mechanics, I decided on giving them a try. I am so glad that I did. What an outfit! Great concept, great execution ... The people in the office are wonderful at keeping you informed, answering questions, from beginning to end. Their online presence and transparency dismisses any weirdness customers may feel about the whole inviting strangers over thing, too. And Your Mechanic delivers, by connecting top-tier mechanics with people who need their help. That’s exactly what Your Mechanic did for me, by introducing me to Chris M. He came to my rescue. What a pleasant polite young gentleman, Chris is. And Boy oh boy!, does he know his stuff! With patient professional confidence and calm, Chris ably diagnosed my car’s problems, tested the hypothesis, and retested too. The problems weren’t easy to find or common whatsoever. Thanks to diligence and expertise, however, Chris M. identified the issues. It wasn’t piston rings or the catalytic converter, as I’d feared, but a faulty engine coil. Chris explained the issue, actually showed me what was going on in the engine compartment, provided me with a detailed quote that I knew was fair and reasonable (talk about a mind Blow!), and then he even offered to come back and do the work, if I wanted. Heck Yes! Chris came back the very same day to render the fixes, all from inside of my garage. No tow trucks, no queue of customers waiting, no worries about surprisingly huge repair bills, and no concern about strangers coming over, or anxiety about non-OEM parts. I have a brand new engine coil, new spark plugs, a clean gas line, clean oil – and a renewed confidence in my automobile’s reliability. Presto! My car runs like a charm. Chris M. earned my confidence, my trust, and my respect – and that’s an amazing feat. Having a qualified, knowledgeable professional come to my home, diagnose my car’s troubles, and even render repairs on site, using manufacturer-recommended parts, sounds like a luxury I couldn’t afford. Turns out I was wrong. No doubt, from here on out, I will be recommending Chris M. and Your Mechanic to anyone and everyone.

Incredibly knowledgable, friendly. He gave me a LOT of confidence when fixing my car. I would only book this mechanic from yourmechanic in the future if I he is available.

Chris discovered that the wires on my starter motor had been reversed by another mechanic the previous day. He corrected the problem and I was on the road again. Thanks, Chris!


on August 03

Chris is a super trooper and deserves High Praise! Although he arrived late (2 hours) for the scheduled appointment due to unforeseen complications on a previous job, he was professional enough to stay late into the evening to finish the installation of my defective engine starter. Chris ~ Thank you!


on August 29

Chris came two hours early. Was very professional and fast. Explained to me in detail what was wrong with my car and what parts needs replacing. Will definitely use again in the future.

Chris was awesome. He told me what needed immediate attention, and what could be put off for a little while. I needed a lot of work, and it definitely need to be prioritized. He was also fast in getting the work done.

Chris contacted me prior to the appointment and arrived as scheduled. Discussed service and explained detail what my request will accomplish. Performed service as requested. I was pleasantly surprised how professional and knowledgeable Chris is. Will definitely use this service again with Chris as the technician.


on July 08

Guy was very professional and knowledgeable. He completed the work in half the time I expected him to. At first, I did not believe him until he showed me the parts that he replaced.
