Joseph was very professional, kind, and sincere. He showed up ahead of time, was very upbeat, and got straight to work. He was done in an hour and cleaned up. Will definitely ask for him again in the future.

Joe was awesome, arrived on time despite having to drive a fair bit to get here from his last job. Found the issue pretty quickly but did some follow-up diagnostics to ensure nothing else was wrong. Absolutely will use these guys again if I have need.

Joseph is an upstanding and outstanding automotive professional. I very highly recommend you to enlist his services! He is punctual, professional, and really puts elbow grease to make things work for you.

Joseph was extremely punctual and was available to perform 2 pre-purchase inspections for me. After the first inspection, he noted issues that had to be addressed. He then came back and re-inspected the car after the dealer took care of the issues. I was informed by the dealer that he was very friendly and professional. I would definitely call on him again! ~Jacqui Sutton

I was driving to an out-of-town conference when my brakes started making a terrible scraping sound. With YourMechanic, I was able to leave my van with my father and have the brake pads fixed at his house without missing my conference--or having to inconvenience my father by asking him to take the van to a shop. After scheduling Joseph, I messaged him via the YourMechanic website with a couple of questions. He was prompt and helpful in his responses. My father said he was on time, very friendly and communicative about the problem. He finished in about an hour and messaged me before leaving. Since I wasn't actually there myself, it was great to be able to confirm that all was well with the rest of the braking system before he left my parents' house. It was such a relief to get the brakes fixed before traveling back home without missing my conference or inconveniencing anyone else, and it was very reassuring to know that a mechanic with very high ratings and years of experience would be taking care of my van and courteous and friendly to my father. I'm really pleased with YourMechanic and Joseph!

Was very professional. Showed up fifteen minutes early ready to get the job done. Fixed the issue, and gave his recommendations on how to prevent the issue again. I will definitely be using and recommending him for future car troubles.

Top of the line mechanic. He correctly diagnosed the problem and saved me some money in the process. Will be using him again for all my auto repairs.

Ok. On time. Finished the job in 2 1/2 hours. Was over billed for labor. I was told by another machanic it should take no longer tha 3 hours.

Friendly, found the problem fast. Let me know what needed to be done and answered all the questions I asked.

Joe responded with a quote,let me know when on his way, showed up before appointment and completed the job very quickly! Great experience!

I was a little skeptical about hiring a mobile mechanic online but I was happy to have gotten Joseph. He was very friendly and courteous in addition to being knowledgable. I really appreciated his service.


on June 24

Joseph was very timely and thorough. By the end of our visit, we knew exactly what our next step in repairs would need to be. He provided a very detailed, easy to understand report that is very helpful. We've already booked Joseph to return to make his recommended repairs.

I was looking into traveling quite far to purchase a vehicle and was wondering how I could ensure it was sound and worth the trip. That's when I came across Your Mechanic. Joseph was able to go to the lot and inspect the vehicle for me. While there, he discovered some leakage as well as a transmission on its last leg. Joseph saved me a trip (which would have been more than the cost of the pre-purchase inspection), and his advice, backed by his experience, was incredibly sound and trustworthy. I genuinely appreciated his kind honesty and personal opinion!


on January 10

He showed up exactly on time and explained everything he was going to do. I even had a problem after he fixed my car and he came back immediately to help solve the problem. Great service!

Joseph was prompt and efficient. Despite having to return to the parts store to replace defective part he finished the required services in a timely manner. Thanks, Joseph!


on July 10

Joseph was professional and showed up on time. He explained everything to me in a way I could understand. He worked quickly and let me know some things I should follow up with but was not pushy.

Joseph is outstanding for being knowledgeable and hard working. He went the extra mile to get the job done and impressed us even more when he came back to follow up immediately after the check engine light came on. He doesn't just do guess work, he fixes your car. Good job.

Joseph kept me updated on when he was going to arrive. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. He listened to what I had to say and changed the thermostat to see if that would fix the problem before doing the water pump and it did! He was very caring and made sure everything was done right. He goes above and beyond and I would defiently recommend Joseph to anyone!

Initially I have no idea that this kind of service exist like a house call. I was skeptical at first but my idea has changed. Mr. Joseph Smith arrived on time and ready to work. He was very informative and discussed with me what he was going to do. He showed me the materials and equipment to be replaced which you will not get to see if it was done at your dealership. The job was done within the proposed time and even made sure that my vehicle was clean. Gave me information on what is needed on the next service interval. Overall, I am happy with the service. I do recommend Joseph for your car maintenance need. I will use his service again.

Joseph arrived exactly on time. He was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He explained in layman terms what he was going to do and why the replacement parts were necessary. He also recommended I look into carrying out other repairs with Your Mechanic. This was my first experience with Your Mechanic and it was a flawless one. Joseph was very competent. I would highly recommend Your Mechanic to others, as a matter of fact, I already have. Your Mechanic offers painless and excellent service.

Joseph did an Oil Change, Brake System Flush, Engine Filter Replacement, Brake Pad Replacement, service engine reset and tpms reset on my 2014 Mercedes GLK 350 RWD. Was a few minutes late but he did let me know about the delay, which was cool. Did the job well, answered all my questions and finished the job early. Had all the needed tools with him. Knows what he is doing. Would definitely recommmend Joseph to anyone.

I paid for a pre-purchase inspection, and he found faults with the car, such as the a/c not working in all the vents which I didn't even notice myself. I rang him a few times with questions on the vehicle to ask for his advice, and he was so friendly and happy to help! The best mechanic I've ever dealt with!
