I'm certified and keep up to date on all changes to the industry which I apply when I'm inspecting and fixing vehicles.

Quick easy service. Car wouldn't start. Figured it was the battery so I booked an appt with Yourmechanic who paired me with Joshua. I didn't want to tow to the dealership and get charged arm and a leg. Came earlier than appt time which was a huge plus. It was the battery. Had it done in under an hr as he was checking for other things that may need repair too. I will for sure use his service again.

Joshua always arrives on time and goes above and beyond trying to diagnose the problem or fix the existing one. He is professional always prepared and explains any details. I look forward to working with him in the future.

Joshua was great. He arrived early which was a plus. He quickly resolved the problem and ordered the parts. I would recommend him to everyone. As a matter of fact while he was there attending my Mom's car, I had him to look at my car as well. He was wonderful and very professional.

This is the second time Joshua has done work for me. Same great job as before. I really like that these mechanics are fully certified, have degrees and continually upgrading their skills. True professionals. This is a great company and a money saver. Add that to not having to go into a shop and you have perfect! I will be using Your Mechanic and Joshua for all of my auto mechanic needs.

I did recommend YourMechanic to my neighbor because I was quite pleased with your service and the promptness in showing up on time and quickly replacing my starter.

This is the second time Josh has worked on one of our cars. Josh is a very knowledgable and professional mechanic. He was on time and very thorough with fixing the problem we had with our truck.


on December 18

Joshua was able to come earlier than we had booked. He was very professional and polite. After he backed my car out of the garage, he went right to work. I checked on him once and I was very impressed how neatly he had his tools set up. Not only did he replace my front brakes, but he gave the car a test drive, checked all the fluids and put air in my tires. He told me loves what he does. He showed me pictures of the work he had done. He took photos with his iphone as he did the work so I could see what he had done. That was a first!!!

Joshua was very knowledgable, friendly, and helpful. He sent 2x the time that I had paid for because he really wanted to be thorough. More work was required on my car, and rather than suggesting that I pay him to do it, he recommended that I visit a Ford dealership for this particular issue. He though it would end up being cheaper for me. I did some research and decided to use Joshua again to do the remaining work. I trust him.

Josh arrived on time, fully prepared, a completely professional service technician. I plan on requesting Josh for my next service need. Highest recommendation.

Josh is a very friendly and knowledgeable technician. He arrived on time to the appointment and took the time to explain any problems or concerns during his inspection. This is his second time servicing my car, he is welcomed back anytime! Thanks josh.

Joshua is an outstanding mechanic. He is friendly, trustworthy, and he gets the job done FAST. Yesterday, he helped me swap out the harmonic balancer and replace the worn drive belts in my car. Despite working in the rain and on the side of a Berkeley street, he managed to get the car going in just 40 minutes. Would definitely recommend.


on August 17

Joshua was so helpful with changing my oil and filter. He came straight to my house, 15 mins earlier than the appointment time and got straight to work. He has a super friendly demeanor, and is very knowledgeable about cars. He answered all my questions without even a hint of irritation. He even gave me some extra information about when to check my engine oil and confirmed my suspicions that it does in fact evaporate over time!! He even went into the reason why! You can tell he loves his work! Not only that but he made sure to spend extra time on my car to make sure he checked everything properly, he was in no rush to get done with my car. But to give it the best service it could have. Honestly I wouldn't trust anyone else with my car, ever again. I will definitely be having Joshua come back and work on my car again. He's even given me quotes on some of the things that need fixing in the future!! I have and will continue to recommend him to my family and friends!

I hate to write this review because, as it will mean that Josh is kept really busy and not available for immediately appointments :) !! It really does not get much better than Josh. He has been our mechanic for a while. He is super competent and knowledgeable. Also really honest. Never any up selling or BS. Diagnosed and repaired both my old cars in just about an hour. So glad that we found him. Thank you Josh!!


on January 03

Always awesome! Very trustworthy and does the little things that many mechanics wouldn't do. He explains everything in depth and doesn't try to rip you off.


on January 04

Josh arrived on time and provided a very detailed, professional Pre-Purchase inspection. He pointed out service areas for the future and made sure that the vehicle was in good shape. I would highly recommend Josh for future service. Thanks!

Ive been having the same problems for a long time now. Everyone seems to milk me for money, never fixing the problem. Joshua quickly found the problem and fixed it. Very professional and friendly, I already booked my next appointment! Thank you Joshua!

Joshua was on time and professional. He explained the work done to me in clear terms. The work area and the car were left clean when work was done. Very happy with the work.


on January 12

Very knowledgeable, professional and a nice guy. I really appreciated the opportunity to observe and ask questions during the work, which you cannot do in a repair shop. A great experience. We plan to use Joshua and Your Mechanic for all future repair and maintenance.


on January 11

Joshua was very upbeat in VERY bad weather conditions (torrential rain, wind, and fading light) and challenging car problems! He was well prepared for every obstacle with tools and investigative approaches. Even though the final prognosis was not good it was a very valuable exercise and not just a quick fix. Getting bad news from an honest, positive, and sympathetic doctor softens the blow and Joshua was just that! Very professional, efficient, attentive, and clearly loves mechanical challenges. A pleasure to hire and I'd do it again - perhaps very soon!

He was on time. I like that he call ahead of time letting me know he was on his way. I defiantly will be using his service again. In two weeks for a tune up.

Josh is great. A previous mechanic had damaged my vehicle. Josh showed up early, figured out what needed to be done, explained everything along the way, and worked with YourMechanic to process the warranty claim. He completed the service. He was very thorough checking out the entire vehicle. He is one of the best mechanics I've worked with, period.


on January 26

I've used Josh for three different services on two different vehicles. Again I had a stellar experience with him. He comes on time, is well prepared, and always ensures there are no other issues that need to be addressed. Very happy with his service.

Once again Joshua to the rescue ! As usual....on time, fast and efficient. Job completed quicker than expected. Totally satisfied like we always are with Joshua Floyd. I have recommended him to quite a few people. They all thank me

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. Joshua is a very knowledgeable, capable and most important honest mechanic. I would highly recommend him and will personally request his services for any mechanical needs I have going forward. Because of my limited knowledge of automobiles, it would have easy for him to take advantage and tell me I needed work or parts that I didn't but instead, he identified what wasn't really a problem at and rook care of it with a smile, he seemed to be just as happy as I . Your mechanic has a good one in Josh. Thanks

Personable, knowledgeable, efficient, and very thorough. Finding a good mechanic is like finding a good doctor/dentist. Dr. Josh fits the bill! Before settling on YourMechanic.com I priced the work with area shops as well as my long-time mechanic. Everyone paled in comparison to YourMechanic and Joshua. I will absolutely use this service and book all my appointments with Joshua, who by the way, was highly recommended by a trusted friend.


on February 07

I've been booking Josh every time I need something serviced or repaired. He never disappoints, only IMPRESSES! This time, after fixing the power steering pump, he noted the coolant level low and performed a diagnostic without my asking and finding the leak at the expansion reservoir. He even topped off the coolant for me. I know he spent extra time on my vehicle without being asked. He didn't ask for any additional labor charges even though I know he must have spent extra time. He is a true professional and went out of his way for me! Thanks Josh!!! Much appreciated!

Josh is very friendly and knowledgeable about what he does. He explains everything clearly, I think that is important to know exactly what is going on with your car and its malfunctions. I will definitely make another appointment with Josh when repairs are needed.

Joshua Floyd is a Rock Star! After a very bad and distasteful auto repair experience at Fairfield Ford, I vowed never to let that Ford dealership anywhere near my car again. When a problem occurred with the power steering last week, I immediately wanted Josh to do the work, he repaired the air conditioning on the car last year, which has been working perfectly since the repair. I was bracing myself for a forthcoming expensive repair on my Ford Escape (FORD: Fix Often, Repair Daily). Josh was able to diagnose the problem and determined it was just a simple system reset to restore the car's power steering. In the end, it was a simple and quick fix. Thanks a million Josh! Josh Floyd is highly recommended.
