I've been an automotive technician for 13 years and am an ASE certified master technician. I graduated from the Ford program and worked at a Ford dealership as well as an independent shop. I approach every customer's car with the same attention to quality and detail that I would give my own car.

Pete showed up early and got the job done quickly. I had a lot of questions for Pete before my service and he answered each one of them quickly and professionally. Making me very confident in his service.


on June 26

Love Pete! He was on time, quick, and friendly. He fixed the problem in 5 minutes and gave me a free inspection since I just purchased the car. I will definitely ask for Pete!


on June 25

Pete is awesome. Very professional and polite. Prompt and knowledgeable. I will definitely use Pete again. Thank you Pete!keep up the awesome work!

As usual Pete went through every procedure on my SUV to find and determine what I did to it. through numerous checks and balances from ignition to compression he concluded that my cylinder had no compression and with other findings I can eventually put her to rest. it still runs and I can still take it short distances to work until I get rid of it. she is an old girl with lots of miles anyway so I am not shocked. now back to Pete. he is very knowledgeable about cars especially fords. he has extensive experience in the automotive field with all its new technology and computers etc. he has worked on my car before and I cant think of another to trust with my cars. you looking for a top notch mechanic and a all around nice guy he is your man. if only other industries were as honest and trustworthy and had people like Pete working for them it would be a better place. when the likes of Pete and anyone like him are gone from your mechanic so aim I. trust, knowledge, experience, values then prices and convenience is what its about. remember this. chuck p

Pete arrived30mins before scheduled time. He explained everything in great detail. Was very professional, literally has a mobile mechanic shop! I was very impressed with all the equipment he has at his disposal to be able to efficiently complete a job, big or small. I would highly recommend Pete, with all of expertise and knowledge.

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.

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 October 22

My experiance with Pete was great. He explained in detail what was wrong with my VW Bettle on the phone before he came out. Then when he got to my condo he again went over the service he was doing. personality and very easy to talk to. We had a situation where I was paying with cash plus credit card not knowing that cash isnt the form of payment they prefere.He took care of it in a timely manner. I would use Pete anytime and so should you . Great guy very knowleable.


on October 17

Pete was knowledgeable with the work (timing belt for Odyssey 2001) I'm satisfied with the repairs on my van and definitely recommend Pete for your car repairs. Thanks for you honesty and a job well done!


on September 22

Pete was early for the appointment, calling me to ask if that was okay, thoroughly professional, knowledgeable, and helpful, and I could not have been happier with his demeanor and performance.


on August 22

Pete is a great guy; diagnosed my electrical issue pretty fast. He easily could have up-charged me for a bunch of additional service since I know nothing about cars and I'm sure he picked up on that. Pointed out a few other things worth looking into while he digging around under the hood but didn't pressure me into taking action on the spot, instead, stuck to just doing the inspection I asked for. Would definitely recommend and use Pete again.


on September 23

Pete is an excellent mechanic and a great guy. He went out of his way to get the job completed under pressure and under the scorching hot sun. He's my guy from now on!

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!

Tried this service for the first time. My problem - sometimes my auto's engine would race, the tachometer would be very high but my car would start slowing down, as if it had lost power, but after a short time the normal power and speed would be working right again. Very scary when you are driving on the highway at 70 mph. then this happens, and you seem to be coasting down to 30 mph. before your car starts to engage properly again. Pete Hambly to the rescue. I explained to Pete how my car was acting, and he surmised what the problem was very quickly before he even hooked up the code reader to my auto. After reading the code and doing a few tests with his instruments to verify his prognosis, he solved the problem. He looked at my part and found a faulty connector sensor. He temporally fixed the problem until the part I need is found. Pete was friendly, informative, professional, very knowledgeable, courteous, and proficient. He was clean cut, well mannered, and made you feel at ease. Pete gave me the impression he loved his work and it was more than just a job to be done. I am very happy I used "Your Mechanic" services and got Pete as my service technician. My cost was lower than if I had taken it somewhere else and more personable. Communicating directly with my technician instead of a clerk behind a desk, that writes up a work order for the mechanic to read, solved my problem faster and with more precision. I will definitely use Your Mechanics services in the future and definitely ask for Pete again. Thank You very much Pete for a pleasant stressless hour.

Pete was great. He was here early and did a quick job with the diagnosis. Look over the vehicle for possible recommdations of future needs. Overall very satisfied with his service.

EZ peasy lemon squeezy. Again, no complaints here. Met with Pete previous week for inspection. Order part and he was in and out under 30 min. Three Cheers for Pete.


on June 11

Had Pete come down to investigate why I was getting exhaust smells through my vents. We found out that my exhaust manifold was cracked. He was very knowledgeable on why cracks happen and offered me an alternative method to wield the crack and save ~$900. He also spotted a busted trans mount (which might explain the vibrations).

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.

Pete knew his stuff, not only did he do a great job but gave me advice on, on a print out I received from Ron Baker that would had cost me 450.00 dollar of work they had recommended, Thank Pete for saving me money!!!!


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!!!!

Very impressed with yourmechanic.com from getting a quote,booking appointment to the mechanic that serviced my car! Pete was very professional,courteous and knowledgeable and experienced. He arrived 10 minutes before scheduled time which was awesome. He fixed the regulator on my driver's side rear door in about 30 minutes.ar the end of the job, I ended up paying less than I was quoted for. I would highly recommend Pete and will use him again in the future
