This is the first time I am using Your Mechanic services. I guess they sent out the PRO b/c my last appt. with yourMechanic was canceled at the last minute. I don' t get this services at my normal garage ( paying 30-40% more) with pictures + voice reports. Ian was early and finished way before estimated time. He did not seem annoyed with all my questions. Hope you guys can expand this concepts to all kind of services.

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 January 11

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!

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!


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.

GREAT EXPERIENCE DIAGNOSIS MY PROBLEM WITH MY SPEEDO METER GAUGE NO FIX THE SHOP WONT FIX IT EITHER LOOKS LIKE ILL HAVE TO TAKE THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER OUT MY SELF AND SEND IT OUT FOR REPAIR


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.

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 06

Ian was great. He arrived on-time...actually, he called and said he could be there early if I was available, which was very nice. He not only fixed the broken belt, but took the effort to diagnose the cause of the problem. He was courteous and knowledgeable and I will request him the next time I need any work done on my car.

Ian fixed my car this morning. It was my first time using YourMechanic and I wasn't sure what to expect. I am thrilled that I found this service (and Ian). The app is very easy to use, scheduling is a breeze, I had to reschedule a couple time and it was done very easily with times available the next day (try and do that with a traditional garage). Ian called me the day prior to touch base with me and make sure that he would be prepared for our appointment, he showed up on time and was very friendly and patient explaining to me what was going to happen. He performed the diagnostic and repairs faster than the allotted time and he didn't seem to mind me bugging him with questions. I am planning to use him again for other repairs on another vehicle. Great service at a fraction of the price quoted by the dealership. Thumbs up all around.


on November 29

He apparently knew what the problem was and immediately went about the fix. My car was repaired and on the road within the hour. Thank you Ian and Your Mechanic.

I was really happy with my first experience with yourmechanic and Ian, so I decided to make my first oil change with them. The experience has been awesome, and having the oil change made at home is incredibly convenient! It has been easy, fast, and clean, not even a drop of oil in the garage. Ian has been more than on-time, and always is super easy to speak with him. I'm kind of ignorant about cars (I know that) and Ian keeps answering my really dummy questions in a friendly way, which I really appreciate. On the other hand, he also used the visit to help me to change the blades and add the washer liquid, so yeah I really appreciate his help! I definitely plan to keep using yourmechanic and counting with Ian to keep the car in good shape.


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.


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 September 18

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 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.


on November 10

Even though I didn't get to meet him in person, he was very helpful in diagnosing my car. Thank you Ian I will definitely be coming to you for more services in the future.

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.


on November 05

Ian sent me a message that he could come earlier than my appointment time and since I was already home, I appreciated the earlier start time. Ian is super friendly and a knowledgeable mechanic, as well as patient and seemed very trustworthy (I hardly ever trust anyone from the start, especially mechanics. He was also able to answer all of my questions). He took pictures of everything that he did, so much different than any other mechanic that has worked on my car. Pretty cool that "Your Mechanic" offers this type and level of service. I will be using "Your Mechanic" if and when my car needs servicing and I would hope that Ian was the mechanic that came out. Thank you very much to Ian and to "Your Mechanic"

Ian arrived early and knocked the job right out. He came prepared. He was fast, courteous, professional and left no trace that he was ever there. I would highly recommend Ian to fix your car.

Very Personable and a great Mechanic. Got right in and got the job completed, Very professional and explained everything. Cleaned up everything very well. Very satisfied would recommend him to all. If all of your employees are like him you should have a very successful future as a company.

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 20

My boyfriend took care of the appointment while I was at work and had nothing but good things to say!! He had a cancelled appointment earlier in the day and even offered to stop by earlier which ended up working out perfectly for us!
