Pete was extremely professional and friendly! He even called the day before our scheduled appointment because he had a cancellation and he wanted to see if that would be more convenient for us! Pete was able to correctly diagnos our car problem and repair it in such a reasonable time. We could not be any more pleased with the end result! Thank you!

Pete Hambly was methodical and thorough in his approach to my car problem. His skills are impressive to note and the time and effort he spent on diagnosing my no-start problem was impressive. He did not stop until the problem had been identified and corrected. Pete went out of his way to make sure that my car would run in good operating condition.


on August 22

Pete was awesome. He called me a few days prior to my appointment to confirm the services I needed done. He also asked if he could come an hour early, which worked great. The day of the service, Pete arrived on time and ready to work. He showed me his progress a couple times during the service, which was great and thoughtful. I will definitely use Pete again and I will refer him to my friends and family. Awesome service!!!!


on August 10

It was 9AM appointment at Sunday Morning, as oil change was about 2k miles overdue. I need to use my car a few hours later. He gave me on my cell at 8:53AM from my drive way. That is the 1st pleasant surprise. On time service! He said it would take 1 hour or so to change engine oil and rotate tires. Then, at the end of service, he showed me a few of pictures he took, while he worked on my car to give me an overall condition. While I was having a discussion with him for a few of potential problem areas, I liked a way he talk and is doing a business with me. He is a straight talk person. He mentioned to me this and this would not need a repair service now. However, that one needs to be done. I know my car and have been worked on my trustworthy car many years for many parts. He won't try to sell for everything, but only sell what I do need. I agreed his points. I appreciate his honesty and expertise. If I come back again to get service through this yourmechanics.com, I would choose him, definitely. Oh... He may be work only over a weekend, as he works weekday job at other places. If you need to grep him, go ahead to get a service from him for weekend, until he put more hours into weekday service call. Good job Pete!

Pete arrived on time and greeted us with a smile. He was very friendly and got straight into diagnosing the problem. We went for a test drive to better demonstrate the problem with the car. He pulled out a few things during the inspection and was happy to discuss everything that he was doing. He gave us a number of good suggestions about the car, including general maintenance tips, and he was happy to answer any questions we had. We were able to learn more about our car during the inspection. Would definitely recommend Pete as a friendly, experienced, trustworthy and honest mechanic!

Pete was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly. He diagnosed the problem quickly and corrected the issue expeditiously. I would definitely recommend Pete to a friend or family member!

I was concerned about a squeaking noise coming from my brakes. Pete took the tires off and showed us step-by-step what he was looking for and found. Though he made some recommendations, he did not try to upsell us for more work. I really appreciate the time he took to check out the vehicle and provide suggestions for vehicle maintenance. Not many mechanics would tell you how to avoid calling a mechanic. Pete was awesome! I have already recommended him to my friends and family.


on January 06

Pete Hambly did the repair of the front struts of my car. Even before meeting him, he communicated very well and helped make sure that everything was ready for the day of service. He arrived early, and upon finding out that we could not do the repair in my apartment garage, he helped find a new location to do the repair. Throughout the repair Pete was very friendly and approachable, and did a great job on the repair even though it was a complicated process. I felt like he was fully transparent about the work he was doing on the car. The cost was about half of what I would have paid at my dealership service and the service was far better. Thank you Pete and YourMechanic for your excellent service. I will not hesitate coming to you the next time I need my car serviced!

Pete was great! I got an oil change and tire rotation on my BMW 328i. Pete arrived a few minutes early, worked fast, and was friendly. He even helped me out by providing me the service engine warning light codes since he needed to clear my oil change light anyways. I'd highly recommend Pete!


on January 01

Pete was great. He was here early,got right to work.He replaced motor for a window on an F-150. It took 45 min from start to finish. He also let us know that the oil needed to be changed but otherwise,everything looked good. Had we know about the oil, he could have done that too. But,we didn't and he didn't have the necessary tools and supplies. I would definitely use this service again!


on January 21

Pete is very knowledgeable and explained his findings to me in details. This is my first time using YourMechanic and im glad my PPI was assigned to Pete whom brought me a very positive experience. I highly recommend him to anyone!


on January 02

What a delightful experience we had when Pete came and changed our oil for us. Pete was on time and very professional. He was friendly and answered all of our questions. We will use Pete again in the near future for other repairs. We highly recommend Pete to our family and friends.

This is my second time with Pete. I respect his genuineness and ability to explain the issue. I will call on him again if my car needs it, and recommend him to others who have not found a trusted mechanic. Thank you Pete.

My mechanic, Pete Hambly, was punctual, professional, and expedient in replacing my timing belt and water pump. I would absolutely work with and recommend Pete in the future. Plus the quote was 35% less than at the dealership. Using YourMechanic was a great experience all around.


on November 20

Pete called and was running ahead of schedule, which worked great for me. He was very quick with the job and was very honest about some repairs that may or may not need to be done in the future. I would highly recommend him as he is very experienced and honest.


on November 14

Pete not only install the parts needed to be replace but did extra time to check the bearing in the hub is good. Likewise he was able to correct the billing over the service rendered that was not right. He even checks engine oil and fluids for steeting and brakes. Because I highly appreciate his service, I made another service request for him to change the engine oil.

Pete was awesome! He was very thorough & done the job in no time! He took the time to answer all questions I had! Very easy going guy who truly knows what he's talking about! I even learned things that I didn't know before. I highly recommend him to anyone! Will be booking him again! This was my first time going through YourMechanic & it was great!

Pete comes through once again with legendary customer service and expert level repair work! He goes above and beyond to ensure the job is done right the first time every time. Get your auto work done with convenience and confidence!!!

Pete made sure that I was prepared ahead of time for the service and I'm thankful for the quality work he performed the work on my car. The car is in much better condition and he finished his work in less than the time originally quoted. Pete was a true professional from start to finish and I will request to work with him again on future services!
