If you're expecting a big shiny shop truck to show up, you're in for a surprise (I was a bit taken aback initially) but it's a good lesson in not judging a book by its cover - or in this case, its vehicle! Chet was on time and every bit as knowledgeable and professional as any mechanic I've ever encountered. He knows what he's doing and wastes no time doing it, adding appropriate suggestions regarding future maintenance as he goes. Noticed helpful things to keep my 19 year old baby on the road and happy - things I might not have considered. Had good information about oil choices, too. Got the whole job done between 11:30 and 3:30, not only the timing belt and pulleys but water pump, too. Just an all-around A+ experience, and knowing he's backed by a warranty on the work/parts makes me feel even better.

Chet seemed very experienced and a genuine person. Very good job and I would recommend him to anyone:) thank you Chet for all your hard work on my truck that I love!


on July 22

Chet was able to diagnose the problem and provided great advice regarding questions I had about the maintenance of my vehicle, including pending repairs I had planned doing with another provider. Thank you very much for your help and instruction.


on July 12

Chet was very professional. He replaced the wheel bearing on my car within 40 mins. I would definitely request him again for any of my car mechanic needs.


on June 30

Chet worked fairly quick, and was very informational as he explained my combination set up for engine and why I was having vacuum issues with my timing.


on August 08

Chet was great! he arrived a little earlier then expected, but called and let me know. When he arrived he was very professional, but at the same time was friendly. While he was working on my car he actually talked to me and explained what he was doing. I was extremely satisfied with his service.


on June 27

Very professional and did a fantastic and timely job. Extremely knowledgable and gave me advice on how to keep my truck lasting as long as possible.


on June 12

Arrived at the scheduled time. He knew what he was doing and got the job done in about 20min. Everyone else I talked to wanted to charge approx. 3 times the amount YourMechanic charged and offered to guarantees. Everything looks good and the car runs great. Thanks, Chet.

Awesome experience all around. Chet was professional, courteous and friendly. Very knowledgable and I will definitely recommend him to others. Thanks Chet!


on October 30

Chet was very helpful in explaining what I needed to know about the car I was inspecting before buying. He told me all the things that would require fixing and the things the seller wasn't telling me before buying the car. He helped me see that I could lower the price because of the a few small things than needed fixing. I would definitely recommend him!!


on May 04

Chet was great! Very knowledgeable and pleasant. Did a thorough check and let us know exactly what was needed. Will definitely use this service again.


on November 06

Excellant service arrived early, finished in a quick time frame and just very nice and helpful on explaning my truck of anything that in future to get fixed without asking.


on June 01

Great service - and communication. Chet conducted a pre-purchase inspection for me - for a car in a different location. He was prompt, thorough and detailed in his report. Definitely recommend!

Subaru Baja

Chet was very professional, knowledgeable and nice. He completed the work as requested and let us know about a couple of things that needed work. He also suggested new tires, even though he and the company don't sell tires. I feel very comfortable driving my Baja again.


on November 18

I was extremely pleased with Chet's performance. He listened to me and fixed my car. A great bonus is that he came to me while I was a work. He is very professional. Answered all my questions. He even had a recommendation for how to keep my car running smoothly. I highly recommend him. Thanks. I will be calling back in the future.


on November 19

Chet's a lifesaver. Every time my car has left me stranded, Chet has been able to get it back up and running in a very timely manner. Getting me back on the road much, much faster than having to tow it to a shop to be serviced. And a helluva' lot cheaper! Highly recommend. Thanks Chet.

Dodge Charger

I am so happy I stumbled upon this service. I had been to three different auto shops (one was the dealer) and they couldn't find what was making the loud roar in my frontend. I rotated my tires, bought new tires and still had the noise. It only took Chet Storch a few minutes to listen to determine it was my front wheel bearings. He replaced it and I have fallen back in love with my car. Thank you so much for such professionalism and experience Chet. I have passed cards around my work and keep telling friends about the Yourmechanic.com. Thank you, Jodie

Showed up early. My problem was simple enough, but I have no doubt in if I need something more extensive. Chethe can handle it professionally and in a timely fashion. Coming from a family of mechanics, I can appreciate the value of years of expertise.

What a great experience ... took a shot on an at-home repair job(s), and I will absolutely do this for all my future diagnostic/repair needs (assuming I don't need anything big like a tranny/engine replacement). Chet was a great guy, knew his stuff, solved problems that popped up, and had all the necessary tools to get the jobs done. Most importantly, he didn't mind me watching/helping which was important for me as I like to learn stuff and get my hands dirty. I'm pretty confident that I would have paid a lot more for a fuel pump replacement and all-around brake job at a shop, plus not having to screw around with tow trucks and travel too/from shop (vehicle was dead). Also, you can save a lot of money if you shop around for your own parts but they just won't warrant them (understandably, but I felt like that was a low-risk chance to take). Funny thing, I hope I won't need Chet's services again, but you can be assured I would call on him when I do!

as usual Chet is an experienced personable person who tells you what is wrong with vehicle and fixes it right the first time. always nice to talk with.

Chet showed up on time and navigated the hard parking situation near my office without complaining. He inspected the car and explained to me, a complete car neophyte, what needs to be fixed and how things work. Definitely a 10 out of 5.

Chet was great... like a trooper, he worked in the dark with a head-light and a smile! He took the time to show me what the problems were and possible problems down the road to look out for. I appreciate that he was professional and knowledgeable while working without wasting time. My cars runs great now and I am so happy to not be nervous jumping into with a 91 year old mother in the seat next to me. Thank you! Linda G.


on December 13

Chet was very knowledgeable in the problem with my car, unfortunately he didn't fix my car because the initial problem I thought it was, was actually different from the work needed, but Chet told me everything that needed to be done so I could reschedule my appointment
