Totally great experience. Not used to getting a call from my repair person in advance of the appointment to go over my problem. What a great business model. Joe is very knowledgeable and I won't hesitate to call him in future

1994 Camaro intake gasket repair; Job well done! went above and beyond car runs great again. would recommenced to anyone who it looking for a talented and experienced Mechanic. Professional and friendly service.. Thanks Joe!

on January 03

Very knowledgeable and helpful, I needed my car scanned and a lot of shops in my area do not have the proper scanner to scan a 1.5 OBD (thanks GM) however, Joe had the right equipment to get the job done. unfortunately, my problem was beyond the code to replace a part and found that i had a vacuum leak at lower manifold. I would recommend Joe to anyone who may need any type of repair.

I have had Joe check a few of my cars so far. He does good work, making sure the car is checked thoroughly to find the root problem and looks for the best way to get it fixed. He is my go to whenever I have any car issues.

Joe was outstanding! -- knowledgeable, courteous, sociable, and prompt. He was at my door at 7:00a, the appointment time I requested. Your online appointment scheduler, however, suggested that "my mechanic might arrive anytime between 7:00-8:00a!" Kudos to Joe for arriving at the time I booked for service.

on December 08

Joe diagnosed and found my problems in no time, he is very thorough and competent!!! I have recommended him to my mother and my daughter.

As a first time user of "Your Mechanic" services I was unsure what to expect. Joe arrived a little earlier than the appointment which was fine with me. It was not unexpected since I was able to track him using the app. He expertly completed the strut replacement within the estimated time. Joe was polite, and extremely knowledgeable. He explained what he was doing and why he was doing it. Following completion of the repair he gave the car a thorough inspection and took it for a test ride. Joe took care to completely clean the work area. I will undoubtedly call on Joe for future automobile repairs and service. Did I mention the $200 I saved compared to a brick and mortar garage estimate?

on November 08

Text to say he could arrive early, turned up, diagnosed the issue, went and got the part, returned and fixed. He showed me all the costs for full transparency. You really couldn't ask for more. I hope I don't need to but if I do I will use the service again and will request Joe, if possible.

Joe is wonderful. He was promptly on time and is very friendly. Joe's very knowledgeable and diagnosed the problem with my truck right away.

Joe is great; professional, knowledgeable, personable. Would definitely recommend him and we plan to use him for future needs.

Joe is Excellent. We have used him several times now. He has great common sense on repairs to older cars. He has been very knowledgeable and personable. He is a great guy & we are lucky to be using him!!!

on October 20

I received a tune up, and a air cabin filter replacement. Joe also inspected my car and stated that it was in good condition. He is affordable and fair. He did not try to get me to get unneeded maintenance completed on the vehicle. I will definitely be using his services again,

Joe was arrived early, had the right parts with him, effective and efficient installation, completed job early and included a safety inspection. Great experience and highly recommend.

on July 20

Joe did a great job, arrived early and left the place clean. The job took longer then we thought, but Joe stayed late and finished the job. I'd use him again.

on July 29

Joe was a lovely gentleman. He was very professional and friendly. We spoke about other work that he recommended to be done also. I was very pleased and will certainly use this service again. Probably soon. He arrived a few minutes prior to start time and was ready to go right away. I would have been happy to have had service done another time when he was already in my area to save him driving a long distance. I too am on the road daily working and know that it makes my life simpler and more efficient when I can service several of my subscribers while in one area versus zig zagging around to several different locations and back. Great Service !

Joe arrived on time, was very professional and cordial. did the job within the estimated time with no problems whatsoever. I would highly recommend Joe.

Very impressed with the whole experience. Joe was on time and very personable/ professional from the moment I met him. He loves what he does and it shows. I'm one that likes to watch and learn about what is being repaired. He answered all my questions. Will definitely use your mechanic again in the future and will ask for Joe. Thank you Joe! 馃槉

I'm a believer . At first I was very skeptical as to the service I would recive . Joe was on time & on point. He solved the problem with my vehicle for less than was quoted . A pleasant surprise . Finding a good mechanic is hard enough; finding one to come to your home on a Sunday & not bend you over is priceless .

on May 24

Excellent communication prior to the appointment. Called when he was finishing up another job that would make him 20-30 minutes late. Produced a thorough and accurate inspection report.

on January 02

Joe checked everything and ran a check on what was needed, however your company gave me the incorrect price on the work I requested. This was after I requested a check to see if it was the true cost.

on January 02

Joe arrived early for my appointment (after notifying me and asking if it was alright) and completed his work in a timely manner. Very friendly and knowledgeable, even offered some assistants to neighbors that needed a jump start. Will definitely book Joe again in the future.

This was my first experience with Joe Hough did an amazing job. The appointment was for 7 PM (scheduled on the phone with a rep) but he called and asked to come earlier which was better for me (he showed at 5 pm)! Speaking with him on the phone 2 days prior to my appointment, he sounded very professional, friendly and like someone I could trust right off the bat. He got to my house and completed changing my valve cover gaskets in 2.5 hours. He did a great job on the car and kept the driveway clean. I would highly recommend Joe for you. Joe gets a 10+ rating.

WOW what a service! Mechanic at my house by 1pm when I made the appointment only 12 hours earlier. My Mechanic was Joe H. He arrived early, was very professional and courteous and went right to work. He was very knowledgeable about everything and not only his specialties. He pointed out problems and solutions to things I had overlooked. I have found not only a new mechanic, but a trustworthy one.

on May 17

Thanks to Joe for a timely replacement on serpentine belt. Thanks also for vehicle inspection. Appointment was made within 24 hours. Can't argue with the price either.

on May 23

Joe was early and very helpful. In fact after his visual inspection he found something that the dealer had not done correctly and saved me huge just on that alone. I am very pleased and waiting for a part to come in so he can repair that. I will be using Joe for all my car needs in the future. Very professional and knowledgable and went above and beyond.

on January 10

Great guy, always goes out of the way to help you. Would recommend to anyone looking for a mechanic who does the job right and takes his time in explaining things.

on July 12

Joe is the mechanic I have been in search of for years. A great mechanic is hard to find. The remainder of work to be done is going to be scheduled with Joe from

on May 16

Joe was on time (actually a bit early) which was okay with me. He exhibited confidence and know-how which I liked. He will definitely be the one person I will call the next time I need my car repaired. As a matter of fact, I've already made a follow up repair appointment before he finished the work on my car.

on July 14

Joe did a great job. He arrived on time and was personable and professional. He informed me of possible future problems in a common sense way. This is the second time I have had Your Mechanic service and both times have been tops. I am recommending this great service to friends here and in other parts of the country.
