I've been an automotive technician since 1978 and have worked on Domestic, Asian, and European vehicles.

Joe showed up right on time; extremely early considering the drive he had to make and I was very appreciative of that. Extremely professional, and it was a tough/hot job. He was thorough with checking my car besides the initial issue and made it very easy to understand the remaining areas to improve. I will always request/recommend Joe for any future jobs as he is as professional/efficient as it gets.

I was quite Amazed at the whole experience of using 'Your Mechanic!!!' After I had signed up for the service, I was very concerned that I would be 'Emptying out my bank account!!!' Well, the experience was TREMENDOUS!!! Your mechanic JOE was exceptionally knowledgeable and extremely polite!! The COST; absolutely, unbelievably in the lower range of my expectations!!! I would definitely recommend 'Your Mechanic' to all my family and friends!!!!! Thank you Joe!!!

HELLO YM, JOE WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL. HES WAS PUNCTUAL AND ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS ON HIS VISIT.

on June 03

Not only was he on time, but what impressed me the most was his professional behavior. I will definitely use Joe going forward with all my vehicle needs.


on June 01

Joe was at my home before six which I was hoping he would be early because i had some erans to run. The whole diagnoses took about 45 minutes to complete.


on September 13

Joe did everything he could to help out our son to get his car fixed. Although we ended up having to bring it into the dealer to complete the car's problem, he gave us excellent service and was very helpful to work with.


on April 10

This was my second experience with Joe and just like the first one was very helpful and went the extra mile to get my vehicle fixed. He is very knowledgeable and shares this with you.


on March 18

Joe was great! Very friendly, very open, told me in detail about the repair and made me feel very confident in the repair. This was my first time using the service; I would definitely recommend it!

I had a wonderful experience with Joe a few days ago. He arrived promptly at 7 A.M. and immediately got to work. An hour later my starter was replaced and I was able to go to work. I am so happy I decided to use this service and have told many family and friends about it since.


on April 02

Joe was excellent. Good job. I do my own work but I was getting into areas where I would get stuck or required two people! I was skeptacal at first of the business model (your Mechanic) but it's the people that make this work. You have the best man working for you hands down. I like working on my car myself but that some jobs area little too big or I'm getting lazier ! I will use your service again ........... Only because of Mr Hough, excellant attitude and calm approach towards the job . Reference to the question below. I have and will reccommend your company to others I know based on my experience with Joe. In other words it's "Joe" I recommend ! This could have been a different outcome for the worst if it was someone else! I would reccommend you do what you can to retain Mr Hough! I choose your company on a risk. I needed help cause I do my own work . I wish I knew about you guys before ! This is exactly what I needed ! I will recommend you guys to everyone. However let me be clear it's the mechanic I'm recommending! So when answering the questions below its based on the above experience!


on March 24

Joe was punctual, pleasant, professional and extremely knowledgeable in auto mechanics. He diagnosed and repaired my car in under an hour. I have a new mechanic and his name is Joe!!


on April 29

Punctual, friendly and very knowledgeable. I felt at ease talking with Joe. I know the basics of working on cars and he was great about explaining everything he was doing. I've been to dealerships who have told me that they need to wait for the ONE person who is trained on dealing with my unique engine and he knew exactly what was wrong and was 100 percent accurate. Thank you Joe!!!

great ....arrived punctually ...... had a couple of great conversations during repair ...... in no time job was complete .... checked blower out, it worked, was nice and quiet ...... life is good again....... thanks Joe .....

I needed an inspection for a used car I was buying sight unseen. Joe did a thorough job of inspecting the car and was very helpful in my decision to purchase the car. Thanks Joe!


on May 16

Joe is very engaging and personable. It breaks issues down into understandable components (if your not a car buff like me). I would highly recommend his services.

Imagine my frustration when I come out of a store and my car is dead. I knew it couldn't be the battery as it was a year old, but never know I guess. I remembered that I used this service before and I went ahead and booked another appt. I was booked for 5:02 pm and the time was around 3p., waiting two hours is better than trying to get it towed and maybe looked at next week sometime. My assigned mechanic, Joe, actually showed up 45 mins before the appt and replaced my starter for me in about an hour. I got on my way home before 5:45! I was a happy customer. Thank you Joe, and hope you got home to enjoy your football game, because you deserve to relax. Thank you again.


on October 23

He was great. Got right to work and found I didn't need an alternator, but a rat removed and belt put bsck where it belonged. This is my 2nd time having Joe as my mechanic and I was very happy with his professionialism and the way jerome me everything he was doing.


on October 19

Joe was awesome! Punctual and very professional. He pointed out a couple things I wasn't aware of and I'm glad he did! In a world where quality customer service and products and/or services have gone by the wayside, well, let's just say that you can clearly see Joe is from another era...one that's sadly missed. I'd be careful not to lose him! Great job Joe!


on October 01

I AM LIVING IN A CONDO BECAUSE MY HOUSE JUST SOLD. WHEN JOE FOUND OUT HE OFFERED TO HAVE ME BRING TE TRUCK TO HIS HOME THEN GAVE ME A RIDE BACK TO THE CONDO I WAS RENTING. IF I NEED MORE WORK IN THE FUTURE I WILL CALL YOU FOR SURE. TED SORCE


on September 19

Joe, came right on time. He immediately came and was very professional. Seemed trustworthy and will definitely recommend him to any one. Reasonable pricing and they go right to your home which is way more convenient. Joe, is very experienced and i can't wait for him to finish fixing the other bugs in my car lol


on September 21

Joe was great. We had a little hiccup after the initial work was done but Joe came back and fixed the issue. I have already recommended him to my parents and colleagues at work.


on August 31

Great service. Joe arrived right on time, was very knowledgeable and friendly and put me at ease since this was my first time using this service----he even saved me a few dollars from the original price. I would not hesitate to use Your Mechanic again and will definitely recommend Joe to friends and colleagues. I wish all businesses were as professional and satisfactory. I was also lmpressed with the close communication via e mails. Great Job all around.


on January 27

Joe was very punctual and upon arrival found I needed a replacement part to my battery connection. With this newfound data he could not do the repair needed that day. He arranged to come the following day (his day off) to do the repair as my safety was important to him, and my vehicle was in no way safe in its current state (master cylinder was out ). He cared enough to take his own personal time to accommodate! Will definitely call on him again for any future repairs.


on February 02

everything went pretty well. My appointment had to be rescheduled a couple times but Joe was always in touch in advance. The repair went smoothly and the car is working well. Would totally recommend!
