Christopher was very professional and courteous. I was scheduled for a 3:00 appointment, but he contacted me to let me know that he had an opening at 7 AM. I was very appreciative of the earlier service. He performed an inspection of the vehicle and made no attempt to upsell. There was a need to replace the brake caliper on the driver side in addition to the brake service. He showed me the damage and all I was charged for was the part and a significant savings on labor. The price was quite reasonable for the service. The convenience of having a house call for my auto repair is priceless. I would definitely recommend Christopher.

Christopher texted me and asked if I would like him to come by an hour earlier. I said sure and he was at my home by 7 AM on a Sunday. He completed the bulb replacement and did the 50 point inspection all within the time allotted. He also told me that this is a common problem but I could be assured that I was getting a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty on parts and labor. Even Cadillac wouldn't honor that. Plus it was a lot cheaper using this service then what Cadillac charged me. I would highly recommend using Christopher again with all three of my vehicles.

Chris did a great job on my truck. He also helped me remove a stripped drain plug as well. Great customer service and it was a pleasure doing business with him.

Another great experience with Christopher. I am extremely satisfied, first and foremost with him of course, but also with this service. I will never go to a repair shop again. I feel so confident and at ease now, it is just priceless. Thank you, Christopher for all of your hard work, knowledge, and advice.

Christopher was very professional and knowledgeable in repairing the vehicle door handles I was very satisfied with his work.

Christopher, and Your Mechanic, have been more than fair trying to resolve a no-start condition on the vehicle. Although he was unable rectify the overall problem which has had to be referred to Mazda (and who are being singularly unhelpful), I have no hesitation recommending Chris who was most helpful and persevered trying to resolve the fault. I will personally be using his services again in the future.

I scheduled the appointment an hour before and chris did a great job. He worked for 5 hrs or so on a job that was only suppose to take 1.5 hrs. It wasn't his fault just a tough job but, I was impressed he stuck with it. Would recommend him for anyone.

Christopher was very professional, and a very experienced mechanic, he knew exactly what the problem was and fixed it!! He went above and beyond for me and I've never met a better person out there in my experience!! Thank You again Chris!!


on October 19

This was my first experience with Your Mechanic and I will return again. There was a slight glitch with the system, but Christopher made sure everything was straightened out regarding the price before he even began the service. Christopher was extremely professional and courteous. As an aside, he was the first person EVER to turn off the annoying service light. Highly recommend!

Christopher Latocki was my mehcanic and oh was he amazing. Scheduled for a "not starting issue" at 11AM but he called around 10AM to ask politely if he could come earlier since he was near. I accepted and he came within 5 minutes with great first impression with his greetings. He was straightforward asked about symptoms about the car (Clicking noise) and went to diagnosed it immediately afterward. He complimented on how great my engine was for a 2010 and i really liked that. He founded the problem instantly and quoted me on the spot for the product needing replaced. The product was ordered while he inspect the entire vehicle for any issues and was a breeze. He went to pick up the product and return super fast, then replaced the product and car was running great and efficient again. I would like to thank Christopher Latocki for his absolute services and would use this service and would always recommend this particular mechanic to everyone. -Jack with the 2010 GenCoupe 2.0t-

Very professional. Chris called to let me know he would be a few minutes late and we used his drive time to discuss the problem with the vehicle. Once he arrived he was very interactive and described exactly what he was doing and why.


on November 22

Chris was an amazing professional to work with. During the visit he explained every portion of his work and he ensured that I understood it thoroughly. Moving forward I plan to utilize Chris as my sole mechanic. I recommend him to anyone considering using Your Mechanic.

Christopher was an excellent mechanic! Throughout the entire job he explained what he was doing, why and how it affected what was wrong with my vehicle. I would thoroughly recommend Christopher for any job, as he was the best mechanic I have ever had work on my car!


on June 12

Christopher went above and beyond with his work, he even saved me some money by not charging me for services I didn't need. He made sure my car was up and running before leaving and I am very satisfied with his work.

Christopher was on time and very knowledgeable in regards to our Ford Explorer. We are looking forward to having a long lasting relationship with Your Mechanic and Chritopher

I do need Christopher to rexam the oil change he performed , the car is leaking oil now onto my garage floor I noticed it yesterday. Upon his next visit can you have him to make sure everything pertaining to the work he did was tightened up. We expect some small amount leakage but we are talking about having to wipe it . Thanks


on January 31

Christopher called me then night before to confirm the appointment. He took the time to get an overview of my problem. He came right on time. He walked me through everything he looked at. Gave me the pros and cons of everything he saw. Answered all my questions (I'm not a car person....so many of them must have seemed silly to him) and made sure I got it. The piece of mind created by having him answer those question is invaluable. Thank you...highly recommend!

My experience with Chris was great. He saved me around %25 on my quote. He worked until the job was done and until I was satisfied even though it felt like 110 degrees in the shade. Thanks Chris and your mechanic for a great job. Thanks too to Jerold in the warranty dept. He went above and beyond any other place of business I've encountered.


on February 03

I was hesitant at first hiring a mechanic to go to your house even for an oil change but this service is a new concept and looks like their pricing is very reasonable and straighforward and fixed, so I said let me give it a try anyway I know a little bit of how the car works. To my surprise it was a very satisfying experience and definitely use this service again. Chris is very professional and friendly he explains what he is doing and make you feel comfortable.


on May 07

Chris came on time, was very professional, and polite the entire time start to finish. he asked information, got to work, double checked everything. worked hard and diligently. showed me what was wrong and was very helpful from beginning to end. and even gave a discount for things I thought it needed but did not. If you want your automobile fixed right and professionally then you should ask for Chris. five stars !

Chris was very knowledgeable and did the work quickly and accurately. I was a little apprehensive about using the My Mechanic service but all fears were gone once I met Chris and talked with him for a few minutes. He knew what to do and how to do it and displayed a high degree of professionalism. I would use this service again for my mechanic needs.


on April 05

Chris was very knowledgeable and professional while working ok my Range Rover. I even hung out and cracked a few jokes with him during the fix. He's definitely a good mechanic and I am recommending him to all of my family and friends.


on March 18

Christopher was very helpful and kind. He even checked my fluids and other things. I was stuck at work and he got my car fixed exactly when I was to get off! Definitely knows his stuff! Price was very reasonable.


on February 05

While there was a price change due to the parts selection process on the website, YourMechanic DID call me and let me know the price would be upped, which was a very professional approach. Chris was a very good communicator and an extremely hard worker, he frequently updated me on his progress on my car, even sacrificing a socket wrench in the process. LOL I was panicking at not being able to get the mounts repaired without sacrificing a month's rent, YourMechanic keeps the prices reasonable and they really treat you like a human being. I've never felt so relieved!
