Great service!

Joe came out and went above and beyond with my car problem. I'm hooked thanks Joe

Had a good experience with Joe ... he was on time & did a good job of making sure my Warranty Alternator was fixed properly. He also made sure he tightened a loose wire that was coming apart from the battery to the Alternator which was really thoughtful. Thanks Joe

Joe is great. He recommended something totally different then the local AC repair company I started with did. I am not really happy that i paid a $70 diagnostic fee just to get a quote when every other place I took the car provided this for free. I am still trying to determine which suggested repair to go with but I can say that I thoroughly appreciated Joe's knowledge and tend to believe that he is correct in his assessment.

This was my first experience with Joe Hough did an amazing job. Arrived before the appointment. He is a courteous, thoroughly professional individual . He did an excellent job on the car . I highly recommend Joe to anyone who needs a Mechanic. Joe gets a 10+ rating. Before Joe left, he checked out the car from bumper to bumper and left me with an inspection report.

Joe was very good. He explained in detail what the other mechanic Paul broke then promptly fixed it. I would recommend him to anyone.

Joe is a gentleman and he showed up early which I appreciate! He knows what he's doing and he is a very hard worker! Now I have A/C again! :) Thank you very much for having such wonderful mechanics!

Joe is fucking awesome! He came out earlier than planned AND came to my job which is 30+ miles away from the set location. He gave me a fair price, and also gave me helpful information that I didn't know to ask for. Will be scheduling with him whenever I need ANYTHING!.

on September 08

Joe was on time, friendly, knowledgeable, and trust worthy. I had no concerns like I would have going to the dealership. Extremely impressed!

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!!!

Mr Joe make my day, great and fast service, great friendly person, very professional with a lot of experience, work in my Land Rover LR3 and I'm very thankful. I will recuest his service very soon. Thanks Mr Joe, God bless you

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 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 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.

on April 28

Excellent service. Very nice. I had placed more services on my appointment than I ended up needing. When Joe evaluated the car and noticed I didn't need some services completed, he spoke to me honestly and we decided a course together. This ended up saving me money while ensuring my car was working at pristine condition. This was my first time using YourMechanic, along with Joe, and will continue to use this service and him as long as they are both around.

Joe arrived at exactly 8am and was done at boyfriend and I we're very pleased with the service and impressed in how he quickly and efficiently fixed my car... he was very professional and will schedule any future auto needs...

on May 04

Joe did an excellent job, at the exact amount promised, so I saved hundreds of dollars with Joe & If you want the easiest, highest quality, lowest costs mechanic, go to It's an absolute no brainier!

on April 21

Joe was OUTSTANDING! I am thoroughly impressed with Joe and! Not only was the diagnosis less than a shop, but the repair is also less, and he explained EXACTLY what the problem was. BONUS, he alerted me to a ZERO cost preventative maintenance item that I could do, that could potentially save me thousands of dollars in repair costs. This makes him my new best friend! I will not be taking my car to a shop again.

on April 18

Awesome job! Went above and beyond. Since the 1st service I've been telling everyone to ditch the over priced dealership and enjoy the convience of them coming to you. Joe was awesome, highly recommend!

Joe - is a total professional. Got to my place a little earlier which we appreciated, he called ahead and let us know when he would arrive and got the job done in a timely and professional manner. Would definitely use Joe again in the future. When you book your mechanic in Tampa ask for Joe - he terrific. Tim V

I'm am very pleased with Joe. He showed up on time and was very cordial as well as professional. His complete assessment of my Air Conditioning /Heating issues were diagnosed quickly. I had recently had repairs made by an overpriced shady mobile mechanic and Joe validated my suspicion. I received a very reasonable quote within minutes and will be moving forward with my repairs. It's a comforting feeling to have a person with such an extensive mechanical background. This is the second time I am using their services and will recommend "YourMechanic" to all my friends. And the bonus to this beautiful package is the pricing to make the repairs. Unbelievable!
