Duane was awesome! I will definitely book Duane again to work on my truck. My fuel pump died on a Friday afternoon and I couldn't get to work that night. I had my truck diagnosed by another mechanic at MyMechanic on Saturday to make sure it was the fuel pump. Then I booked a Sunday appointment to have Duane do the repair so I could get back on the road and not miss work on Monday. Duane did my repair on his normal day off and even went to get the parts himself when he found out that they wouldn't be available from his normal supplier until late Sunday afternoon, which would have forced me to reschedule the appointment to another day. Truck is running great and I found an excellent mechanic!

Duane showed up right on time to my office. He performed the works leaving no signs that work had been done there. Made recommendations and provided quotes for those I was interested in before he left. Very Professional!

on December 17

Duane was very helpful and informative. He made sure that I understood what needs to get done with the car and showed me additional problems he found. Would definitely recommend



Nissan Altima

on December 02

Duane came early. I was wrong about the part that needed replaced and he was nice enough to get the correct one and still install it. Very fast and friendly. I would recommend him.

on November 28

Duane was extremely helpful. He broke everything down and explained what exactly was going on with our truck. Even though it was not something he could fix he still gave me resources on how to fix the problem and where to call. I greatly appreciated his honesty!

Duane is an excellent mechanic. A true professional. He is much more talented than mechanics that have worked on my car at the dealership.



Audi Allroad Quattro

on November 09

Duane is the man. He goes above and beyond to help out and make you feel comfortable. He is much more thorough than some of the indie shops I have been to. He takes the time do things like use using gauges to measure play in bushings as compared to indie shops that try to feel it by hand.



Honda CR-V

on November 08

Duane was about 30 min early, which worked for me. He was clean, pleasant, asked the right questions & fid a battery check to make sure my problem really was the alternator. Done in 1 hr. Great!

on October 26

Came on time (even a little early - good). Knew what he was doing & came prepared. The job was done in very reasonable time, about what was estimated. I would hire him again.

Excellent mechanic. Duane is extremely knowledgeable and very efficient with his work. He is the best mechanic I've encountered in 25 years. Would recommend for anyone to have him service your vehicle.

on October 06

Honestly he is one of the rarely found trustworthy mechanics. He really knows everything not just change parts and simple mechanic jobs and he even fixed my broken remote controller for free. I mean if you want a mechanic who just doesn't care about taking your money, it is Duane :) Thanks for being a good person.

Duane is a perfectionist. He is so knowledgeable and very efficient. I recommend Duane he explained everything to me that was wrong and what he was going to do. My car runs so smooth and quiet. If you need an excellent mechanic Duane is the man. Thank you for everything

Duane was awesome. He showed up early and was very friendly. He was able to tell me what was wrong with my vehicle and even given me a detailed quote instantly. Would recommend him to anyone

on June 30

Busier-than-usual traffic conspired against punctuality: a minor point, and easily forgiven. Service was much faster than I expected, and YourMechanic's convenience remains unsurpassed.



Toyota Corolla

on January 23

We were unable to start our car late Saturday evening and called a bunch of local auto shops only to find that they were all closed on Sunday. I had read about YourMechanic and thought of giving it a try. Our appointment with Duane was booked for Sunday noon but he came two hours early! Within a few minutes he was able to pinpoint the problem to a bad starter. He gave a quote and we decided to go ahead with it. Within one hour he was back with the part and replaced it in about 20 minutes. We were very happy with our service.

2ND appt with Duane. Showed up early again and was finished in minutes. The guy is just awesome. He's the go to guy for anything we need done on our cars. Thanks again Duane!!

on June 23

I like Duane he was professional and a down to earth guy. I was surprised how fast he completed the repair. He showed up early did the repair. I'm having him come back to do some other maintenance I need done. I think Duane is going to be my go to guy. Thanks Duane for showing up and being professional. We need more people like you !!



Suzuki SX4

Duane is a really nice guy. He got a new water pump installed on my Suzuki in a few hours while I was at work. Very easy to deal with, communicative and trustworthy. Already recommended him to my coworkers.

on March 04

I took my car for a test ride Saturday. The brakes sometime will not respond when I press. I'm sure Duane will correct the problem on his next visit o n March 29. Please inform him of the problem. Thank you



Mazda 6

on February 01

Duane is very professional and an exceptional mechanic. Replaced the alternator on my 03 Mazda6 in a couple hours (which was no easy fix, I tried). Highly reccommend Yourmechanic, and specifically Duane.
