When he came to complete the work he arrived on time (not easy considering I was a late appointment) and the work was finished in a timely manner Today I am back on the road thanks to Michael. Great mechanic and LOVE the convenience of Your Mechanic. Will use them again when needed and will request Michael work on my vehicle.


on October 12

This is the third time I've requested Michael and as always he was honest, dependable, friendly, & knowledable. I highly recommend Michael to anyone.


on October 10

Very friendly and personable. Very good at delivering bad news(not his fault) also very good at explaining why things need to be done and/or fixed on my vehicle bi am certainly not smart about cars but he made it easy to understand.

Awesome experience with Michael! Great customer service and did a fabulous job of explaining all the work that was needed. Would highly recommend!!

Michael was great. He was detailed in what he would be doing. He was efficient in completing the services. I would definitely recommend him and he will be primary for my future services.


on September 29

Michael was early to the appointment and gave me the heads up prior to his arrival, which was really nice. He explained how the service would work and was very thorough is examining the vehicle. I'm very happy with the service and would definitely recommend.

Quick repair of a starter...once it was diagnosed. Downside to mobile service, if you dont know what is wrong with car...you may have to wait an extra day for the fix. No ding to mechanic. Just nature of the mobile beast. And me having no clue.


on September 19

Michael was on time, courteous and efficient. Everything he did was in a timely manner and he seemed knowledgeable about the vehicle. Thank you so much!


on September 19

On time, knowledgeable, candid, terrific customer service, that summarizes my initial experience with Michael today. I will recommend him and will ask for him personally next time I call on "Your Mechanic".

Michael is a great mechanic! He arrived early to replace my starter for my 2003 Nissan Altima and was very honest about diagnosing my car! Very nice and professional! Will definitely book him in the future! Thanks again!


on September 17

Michael was very professional and showed great attention to detail in his review of the vehicle. What peace of mind it was to schedule and have such a knowledgeable person arrive the following morning.

After a false start (not caused by Michael), the appointment was rebooked. I am ecstatic about his timeliness (he was early), and the work he completed since most replacement parts for my vehicle are discontinued. He made numerous recommendations for additional service based on the age of the vehicle. I will be using this service in the future.


on September 08

Words cannot express the gratitude I have towards Michael. He is extremely knowledgeable, honest, and hardworking. I highly recommend Michael as from now on I will only be booking him myself.

I wanted a professional opinion about a used car I was going to purchase. Tried YourMechanic because I needed a someone quick. Made appointment with Michael Straub in the Alpharetta, GA area. He arrived a little early (after calling first) and began looking at my car. It didn't take him very long because it was a 2016 Toyota from CarMax and they sell quality cars. What I liked most was the ability to speak face-to-face and ask questions about the car like where the transmission fluid dipstick was; as it turns out, most new cars have a sealed transmission system so there is no user entry point. He even told me about the different types of transmission services and which ones to avoid. Seems like, to get a proper service, they need a $20,000 machine that sucks ALL the fluid out so everything gets replaced with fresh. He was very informative and easy to talk to; encouraged questions. Would definitely recommend his services and will ask for him in the future. He is a true nugget of gold in the car repair business!


on September 01

Was early, and very helpful and insightful on the issues of my car and the recommendations needed. Explained things in a way that I can understand when it came to my car.


on October 18

This was my first time I pretty much stumbled into calling from online it seemed very convenient but at the same time I was a little reluctant on the day of service Mike gave me a call gave me a run down on what he was going to do and got bus your. When completed he once again gave me a run down on what I needed service wise next and made awesome recommendations, Mike Thanks again dude your the Boss see you next time Thanks Your Mechanic,


on October 02

Michael was trustworthy and explained car issues in detail to help reduce my overall cost for repairs. He is awesome! N.B.

One of the best mechanics i have ever cane across..very knowledgeable i would definitely recommend him again! Saved my life..5 star

Michael was timely, efficient, courteous and I can truly say that although I was skeptical to use yourmechanic.com, Michael sealed the deal. His conversation was natural and honest his personality was genuine and fun which is not something you usually look for in a mechanic but will ensure that I use your services for the foreseeable future. Highly recommend him!

Michael performed a warranty inspection of our vehicle on behalf of yourmechanic.com. He was on time, polite, and thorough. He explained in lay terms the findings of his inspection and answered all of our questions. He did not rush through the service and seemed to genuinely want to help. We have a follow up service booked with him tomorrow and I look forward to working with him.


on January 22

He showed up right on time! Not even a minute late! He was thorough and fixed my car in a short amount of time. He's knowledgeable about his job and provided excellent customer service. :) I definitely recommend him!

I had my starter go bad in my Honda Accord. Michael came out around 7 PM at night, and diagnosed my problem, along with several other problems with my car in under one hour. He was extremely knowledgeable about all kinds of cars and their parts, and was very educational on what exactly was going on. The next morning he showed up 15 minutes early and had my car ready to go in 45 minutes. I would definitely recommend him! Very knowledgeable, kind, and efficient!


on February 14

My truck would not start. He performed a thorough evaluation and determined it was the fuel pump. He gave me quote on the spot and set time to have it repaired.

Michael arrived on time and quickly replaced my car's tie rods. He answered all my questions and was able to find solutions to problems that other mechanics struggled with.


on February 17

Michael was here on time with the proper parts and tools to replace my fuel pump. Repair was done within time estimated, and most important to me, he had diagnosed the correct problem as to why my truck would not start. Displayed excellent knowledge of my vehicle. I plan on having him work on my other vehicles as the need arises.


on February 19

Michael came out for a reinspection on a service I had done by a different mechanic last week. He was punctual, friendly, and informative. He was able to determine that my problem was indeed tied to the previous service and under warranty so the inspection was free of charge. Also he was able to diagnose the other issues that should soon be addressed. Request Michael, he is professional and proficient.


on February 22

This was my first time using the services of Your Mechanic and I must say it was simply a wonderful experience. Michael was "very professional" from the time he sent me the text to let me know he was on his way until he completed the job and explained everything that he did in detail. I also like the fact that he did an overall evaluation of my car and let me know what other services I needed to take care of. On top of that he gave me the quotes for those services on the spot and even offered to set-up an appointment on the spot to get a specific service done, but I was not able to do so at the time. Because of Michael and the great job he did, I will definitely use the services of Your Mechanic again. Also, I need to add that it started to rain and Michael continued to do the work so he could get the job done. Now tell me that is not true commitment and dedication to your work. Once again, I was very pleased with Michael's work and overall professionalism and I highly recommend him to work on anyone else's car because you will not be disappointed...not at all.


on February 27

Michael showed up early for a pre-purchase inspection and did an outstanding and thorough job. He patiently answered all of my questions and took some extra time looking at the vehicle history report and explaining some things to me. Can't say enough positive comments about him, would hire him every time.


on January 18

Was very timely in arrival and very thorough and comprehensive in his inspection. I can't believe how inexpensive his services are for the amount to detail he covered. Will use him and this service again!
