I have used Duane on numerous appointments and on several different vehicles that I own. He always shows up early, does a thorough job and explains any issues so I can understand. He is the only mechanic that I will use now as I trust that he gives me a true picture of my vehicle and what is needed. No up selling like most shops and dealerships. Great guy!

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.

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.

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.

Very efficient, kept in touch with me on his anticipated arrival time and updates while working on my truck. This was my first time using this Your Mechanic service and felt Duane had a great wealth of knowledge and he was trustworthy. Easy process to line up the appointment and go over with Duane what was needed and not needed. Thanks again and highly recommend.
