At this visit I only needed an oil and filter change which was done perfect, I did ask him many questions while he was working. He kindly answered all my questions which showed his professional knowledge as an outstanding mechanic.

Chet was terrific! He quickly diagnosed a couple of issues, obtained a necessary replacement part, and also performed scheduled maintenance.

Chet was great, as usual. He always gives us exactly what we need, advises on future needs and doesn't try to sell us unnecessary service.

Chet was great ,on time for the appointment figured out the problem fast. Very professional I will use him in the future.

Chet showed up a little late due to the rain, which was out of his control. He diagnosed my problem within a half hour and was a pleasure to work with. The amount quoted was what I was charged. My vehicle is a 1946 Willys CJ2A with 81,800 original miles. I appreciated his knowledge and advice.


on March 03

On-time, friendly, knowledgeable, quick and best of all: honest. Definitely, I'd request Chet again for my vehicle repairs.

told me about having my brake pads replaced soon and my front tires were wearing thin. I got my front tires replaced the next day and I am going to make my appoint to have my brake pads replaced in February. Very pleased with the service and the heads up on future maintenance repairs needed for my car.

I am happy with the service I received, and feel a lot more comfortable booking Chet again in the future. I am tired of taking my car to places where it's not fully serviced properly, and they want to overcharge me for things that should come with the maintenance I paid for. Chet also took the time to school me on a couple things about my car, and not to waste money.

Chet was courteous and professional. He arrived on time and was able to complete the job in scheduled time. Overall experience with YourMechanic was great!


on January 17

Chet was on time, and knew exactly what the problem was for my car. Unfortunately the part that was needed to fix my car had to be ordered so I will see Chet again in a couple of days. Overall I have to say I was pleased with the customer service


on January 11

As usual Chet was able to fund the problem in minutes and fix it within a short period of time. Chet is great and always has some great pointers for me on my 67 Mustang.


on January 03

Professional and competence in automotive industry. Very good troubleshooter and patient to get the correct diagnosis and recommendations for future repairs..

Chet really knows his stuff! We thought we needed a new windshield wiper motor, but it turned out to be just a small adjustment needed. Chet fixed it right away and we were only charged the labor for the call, even though a part had been ordered. We've used Chet twice, now, and both times he was personable, efficient and a pleasure to work with. While he was here, he also answered some questions for us and gave us a quote for some other much needed repairs. He also made suggestions for things that we would do on our own.

Great honest mechanic very knowledgeable quick and thorough thought I needed a fuel pump turns out it was a distributor glad he was here and honest would of probably got a run for my money if I had taken it to a shop will gladly do business again


on February 03

We had Chet inspect a car my son was thinking about purchasing. Chet was very knowledgeable and thorough. He was also patient with me on the phone and took the time to explain everything because I know nothing about cars. Great experience, would do it again!


on August 09

He is very knowledgeable and careful with his work. Tried to repair a stuck fuelpump but is was too far gone so he is going get a new one and install it tomorrow.

Chet arrived a few minutes early! Being an Audi owner/enthusiast, I was very pleased to learn how knowledgeable he was on Audi vehicles and he took the time to explain his work and make recommendations for maintaining my Audi. Overall, this was a far better experience than the last independent 'Audi specialty' garage I used. I will definitely work with Chet Storch and YourMechanic again!


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!

Chet is very honest and fixed my problem with the door in the least expensive way possible. The price charged by local mechanic was $160, but Chet solved it in $105 which included a $70 inspection value in it. I will recommend Chet 100%. I saved more than 70% by engaging your mechanic. Good job - Thanks to Chet.

I had taken my car to firestone who over charges drastically. They also lost my tire lock. Lucky enough, Chet had the tool with him to take the keys off! So I got new sets for my tires for free because firestone lost mine and I got to have my brakes done! Thank you for your smart thinking! My brakes are working great!

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

Chet went above and beyond to repair my vehicle. I greatly appreciated his superior flexibility and patience while servicing my car and would highly recommend him to anyone.

Exceptional experience, from beginning to end! Chet is a FIVE STAR mechanic! Extremely professional, and precise with his work! Looking forward to call him should we encounter any need for a mechanic! Two thumbs up for you Chet! -most satisfied customer!

Chet showed up and did exactly the check that I expected to test for fuel pump failure...I didn't know how or where and would have done it had I known. Regardless, we came up with the same result--pump failed. He was ready to do the job, but made clear what the hardest part would be. Being the car is a Jag, it was clear that the design engineers had never had to do maintenance on one...he set aside the time and checked to see of a cheaper pump might be available. Point made. He was working to make his customer happy while still doing the work needed. Told me about a few things besides on work I could do myself vs. have done. My kind of mechanic. Let the pros do what the pros do, let us knuckle busters do what we can to feel proud of ourselves. Great guy.

Check is awesome. He has serviced all of my family vehicles. He is honest, dependable, and thoughtful in his diagnostics and handles repairs quickly and efficiently.

My car's problem is catastrophic at the A/C compressor, we originally hoped for less of a problem. There is no way around what is the needed repair. Chet worked with me and the parts provider and set up a new appointment to do the needed repair quickly. I am very happy with the way he treated me and handled the situation
