Very knowledgable and helpful, explained everything to me and made sure I knew what needed to be fixed and what didn't. Was on time and quick. 10/10 would schedule with him again!


on August 22

Ian was courteous, quick and efficient! He contacted me before our appointment to make sure everything was in order and even contacted me the morning of the appointment notify me that he had time to show up earlier than our scheduled time if I like. Couldn't ask for more!


on September 02

Mr. Shastko was punctual for our appointment today. He was personable while pragmatic: he outlined what he'd be doing and why. He also explained that he'd check the overall general condition of my car and make recommendations. He found the right rear tire to be low and filled it to the proper pounds-per-inch volume. He proceeded with the radiator service processes. At tasks end, Ian cleaned up thoroughly. I most certainly intend to use "Your Mechanic" services in the future. I find Ian to be highly competent, knowledgeable, and a person demonstrating true concern toward achieving results desired by, and to the benefit of, the customer. Jim Hensley in Seattle

Explained everything to me like I was 5 (because I told him I know less about cars than a 5 year old). He showed me what was wrong, and explained how he drew the conclusions. 10 out of 10, would use again


on April 28

I was pleasantly surprised Ian was early. I found him courteous, engaging, knowledgeable, patient and friendly. He completed his work in a very timely fashion. I was VERY happy with the results of his work. I appreciated his candor and explanation of what he did and what he found during courtesy inspection. "Thank you Ian". I would recommend Ian without reservation.

Had Ian come in for an inspection for my battery that wouldn't hold a charge. Ian looked at all angles carefully and after explaining the problems to me, recommended solutions, for which he came in again and fixed the problematic part. We did some testing later and everything was good after replacing the part and I did not have to replace the more expensive alternator!


on September 12

Ian was awesome. If you've ever hated dealing with dealership gouging and shuttles or shady independent mechanics, this is the guy with the right service for you. Booking was easy and pricing was upfront, which is a huge timesaver to calling a shop and waiting for prices and appointments over the phone. Ian was friendly, honest, and made sure he took a look at any and every other issue I might have with the car. Fun time to be had having Ian fix your car :)


on September 22

Ian was a great mechanic and his personality was nice to be around. He seemed to know what he was doing and is well versed in car mechanic knowledge. Because of my experience with Ian I will use Your Mechanic again!


on March 01

Good experience again. Ian is always really helpful taking care not only of the regular maintenance services but also helping to review if anything else is required in the car and helping us to prioritize whatever is required. He is definitely really helpful and we appreciate always not only the work but the explanations and help.

Is was great! Showed up a few minutes before he was supposed to. Explained things thoroughly. Was finished in under an hour and was very friendly. Will Definitely use Ian again!


on December 20

Ian arrived on time and took about an hour for the inspection. He identified one problem, showed me my options, and I schedule a follow-up service appointment.


on December 28

Ian is very professional. He came 15 minutes ahead of time. It is really great. I really appreciate it. Have completed the work on time. All Good. Thanks Ian.


on January 18

Ian saved the day! Got my car figured out in minutes and told me exactly what I could do to get fixed same day as I had an emergency and needed my car that evening! When I got stuck again at O'Reilly's, Ian came and helped me again! Got me out of there in no time!


on April 29

Ian was friendly, fast, and quite competent. The service was reasonably priced and easily understood. Upon completion, he went throughout the car and suggested the rear brakes needed to be replaced and I would receive a bid for parts and labor via email. The next morning, his bid was -as expected- in my inbox. I intend to follow up as time and circumstances allow. I have recommended Ian to several friends; the YourMechanic model appears favorably received and I expect others will avail themselves of the need and convenience of mechanics who make "house calls", especially by Ian.

If like me you have ever had any fears about using a mobile mechanic then using Ian's service will completely dispel those fears. Prompt, polite, knowledgeable, helpful are just some of the words I would use. Starter replacement job completed on time, on budget and on one of the coldest days of the year and as a bonus I got a report into the general condition of my truck. Thanks Ian!

he is a great guy with lot of knowledge. he did a great work in replacement of brake pads n inspections. i would definitely recommend him to my friends.


on September 24

Ian arrived early and answered all my questions while diagnosing the problem. He fixed the issue and completed everything quickly. I'm very impressed with how efficient he was. I saved so much time by scheduling my appointment through YourMechanic and having Ian service my car.


on October 06

Ian did a timing belt replacement service on my 2002 Toyota 4Runner and I am extremely pleased with his work and the value I recieved. Ian arrived at my house on time, explained what he would do and got to work. There were zero issues that needed to be addressed. I have already recommended both Ian and YourMechanic to a friend and will continue to do so. I will have Ian to do an upcoming major service on my Ford Expedition.

This is the first time I have used Your Mechanic and it definitely won't be the last! Ian arrived right on time, explained everything he would be doing and then got to work. Upon completion he made a couple recommendations for future maintenance and additionally sent me a complete report. My vehicle runs great and I just loved the convenience of having the work done at my house which allows for direct communication with the mechanic.

Subaru Legacy
on April 19

Ian arrived 10 minutes early, removed the bad starter from my 1998 Subaru and replaced it (in addition to doing the overall inspection of the car), all in less than 45 minutes. The Subaru fired right up. The quoted price was the price I was charged. Next time I need work on one of my cars, I will be calling Your Mechanic.


on September 30

Ian went above and beyond to work with my schedule and get my car back to working order as quickly as possible. I had expected the repair to take at least a week based on past experiences but he diagnosed the issue, ordered the new part, and made an appointment to install it the next morning.


on October 06

Ian was absolutely amazing. So friendly, kind, knowledgeable, efficiently communicative, and very pleasant to work with. He was able to complete the work without any problems and I know the work is done right the 1st time. THANK YOU IAN!!!


on October 13

Ian worked on my '66 Barracuda and got it started. He was professional, friendly and very tolerant of my questions and pesky dog. I highly recommend him and would gladly have him work on any other vehicle we own. What a terrific experience it turned out to be~!


on October 21

Ian was amazing. The biggest reason I've avoided having my car serviced, was fear of finding someone that would attempt to run the bill up on me, for a simple fix, but Ian was definitely not that person. He told it to me how it was, was incredibly knowledgeable, and an overall friendly person. From now on, any services that I need done to my car, will almost certainly be done by Ian.

Great first experience, Ian showed earlier and finished the job before the time expected. Ian was super friendly and professional. He remembered the car from a past review through TRED, also provided a short summary and tips for the future. He also provided with a fast inspection of the car, which is greatly appreciated. Amazing experience.

Ian was very prompt in arrival and did a thorough professional job on my car. He explained the issues and proposed solution and completed the work within an hour of arrival. He has good knowledgeable about servicing automobiles and expert in diagnosing the problems quickly. Definitely recommend.

Ian did a great job, he was early for the appointment, was very professional and the jeep rides like a new car. Thank you so much, I am very grateful. I'll be back for other issues that come up and service work that I need. Thanks again.

This is the first time that I uses YourMechanic and I am very happy with my experience. Ian was actually earlier than our appointed time because of he has finished previous work before schedule. He sent a text to me before he came and I was happy to get it done earlier. Ian is very knowledgeable and patient with my questions. I am very happy with the service he provided and will definite use them again!
