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.

One word: Awesome. Joe was cordial, nice, had great communication and provided an excellent service. I will be using Joe again and recommending him to friends and family.

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.

on December 04

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 Amazing, he showed up found the problem and even saved me some money as it was not what i originally thought it was. He was on time, nice and really walked me through the entire process. Would recommend him to anyone who needs a mechanic.

on October 05

Joe knows what he is doing when it comes to cars. Joe was on time for the appointment. He installed the Clutch Master Cylinder and I have a clutch again. I can't ask for more really, plus I did not have to have my car towed anywhere. Very happy with Your Mechanic and Joe.

Joe was very helpful, and very well informed. He was able to identify the problem with my vehicle faster than anyone I have ever seen. Very professional and knows his job so well it's almost art watching him work.

Great mechanic. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Arrived on time and performed work to all expectations. Cleaned up when done and finished in his estimated timeframe. Great experience. Would highly recommend him.

on September 27

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

Joe's an excellent mechanic with many years of experience he shows up before time to get the job started. He replaced my timing belt and water pump and fan belts on my 2002 Toyota 4Runner. I purchase the parts from Advance Auto Parts but it had a defective gasket he had to come back and redo it because of the gasket. He rescheduled the appointment a few days later and finish the job perfect. I suggest instead of buying your own Parts like I did get your parts from Joe this way everything is guaranteed with no extra labor charges.

on September 09

Joe was great as a person and a mechanic. I just bought this car and my mind is much more at ease about what is wrong with the car and just how serious it is. I just left him alone to do his thing and he was shortly forthcoming with all the things wrong with the car. My engine light was staying on and had some AC issues and one of my tires needs to be replaced. My advice to others is to use this service before you buy that car you like. It can save you money and headaches.

Very professional and knowledgable...and as a single woman and mother i appreciate not feeling like I was taken advantage of. Will use yourmechanic and request Joe again.

on March 23

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 .

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 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 August 23

Joe did a great job with my 2011 BMW 328i. He showed up early, articulated what was wrong with my vehicle, and efficiently repaired my vehicle. He was a good communicator and also is very personable. I would recommend him to anyone who needs work done.

on August 24

Joe is prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and patient. He does an outstanding job and helps me understand the nature of challenges with my truck and what to look out for. His candid approach is exactly what I need. I highly recommend Joe!

on February 15

Joe was great!! He arrived on time and performed the repair within the time frame that was given. He took the time to explain what he was doing. I will definitely use this service again, and request Joe.

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.

on August 19

Joe is an awesome mechanic....on time 7:15 am as scheduled, meticulous and efficient work, I could not be happier. Fixed my AC expansion valve, vacuumed it down and recharged the ICE cold now. Highly recommended, Cost $400 less than the Toyota dealer quoted, and was done in my driveway. Thank you so much JOE!!!!!

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 August 17

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 .....

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 !

on February 13

great experience. he was fast, friendly and efficient. for once I don't feel like I've been ripped off while getting my vehicle worked on. will definitely recommend him to everyone I know.
