Richard did excellent job replacing my lower control arm and replacing my value casket replacement. He found problem with one of my tires and appreciate letting me know of this issue. I will have tire checked.

Richard really saved me hundreds of dollars today . I had another mechanic quote me a ridiculous amount of money because he diagnosed my car based off an internet search as opposed to checking out the car himself. When Richard got there he agreed that if the task was what the internet said then it would be very pricey to repair .... however he still double checked himself instead of just going off what the internet said. Upon his own review he noticed that the labor on the part wasn't as difficult as the internet made it seemed and he was able to fix my vehicle at a reasonable price. After my car had sat disabled for 4 months I can finally drive again !

Richard showed up in the expected timeframe. He was done in less than an hour. This service was very quick and efficient and, most importantly, saved me hundreds of dollars from going to an auto shop. I would love to use Richard's service again if needed in the future. I have highly recommended YourMechanic to several friends since my service.

Richard was on time and worked quickly. I booked yourmechanic based on dealer recommendations. Richard came out and told one of the recommended services was not needed and deducted the price from my quote. He also diagnosed another issue and submitted a quote while telling me to check with the dealer as there might be an extended warrenty on some of the parts. I will definately use Richard again when the need arises.

Richard is incredibly kind, considerate, and honest about the work he thinks your car needs. He knows absolutely everything about what's happening under your hood and can explain things in non-technical terms.

Best Mechanic in Atlanta.....Always on time and finishes the job quickly. Please don't ever retire.....it's hard to find a truthful and knowledgeable Mechanic 馃槉

Although Richard was very late he thoroughly checked out my car, went to get the parts and did the repairs by the time I left work. That is why I called Your Mechanic and I am grateful. Thanks again, Richard.

Extremely knowledgeable, very personable and a great mechanic! Richard is very professional, honest, polite, and an expert in his field. Our truck is running like brand new again.

This is a great service depending on the mechanic you are given. Richard was recommended by a friend who had Richard repair another Your Mechanic's shotty work. This service is a bit expensive (not quite as expensive as the dealership, but more expensive compared to a joe blow mechanic chain) but it is worth the money if you get a clear diagnosis and good mechanic. I will most likely use them in the future for other minor repair issues to save myself the day long wait at the dealership.


on April 27

This was my first experience with YourMechanic.com and I couldn't be more thrilled! I was a little nervous at first but Richard put me totally at ease. He tolerated all of my questions and explained everything he was doing. It was pouring down rain but he could not have been more pleasant. I have shouted to the rooftops to everyone I know that YourMechanic.com and Richard are the way to go if you need any work done. I already have another appointment scheduled to get my brakes worked on later this week. Thanks Richard!

I love this service and how I can hear the mechanic's notes and see photos. And have a record of services performed all in my app. My mechanic was on time, professional and communicated with aboutthis process. By the way I was even able to pull up where I had work done in the app at a traffic stop. I am impressed with "Your Mechanic"!

Richard replaced my starter. He's a really nice guy and I learned a lot about my car talking to him. I chose to buy the new starter myself, and he came back the next day to install it. All good.

This is my first experience to meet a mechanic in person. The mechanic, Richard Cobb, is really friendly. Also, he helped me diagnose problems for my car. I really recommend people to try this service.

Richard was very knowledgeable and what really impressed me was very thorough and thoughtful in regards to the expense of repairing my daughter's car. Will definitely request him in the future

This was my first experience with yourmechanic.com. The entire experience from beginning to end far exceeded my expectations. The mechanic was professional, courteous ,prompt and knowledgable. I will continue to use yourmechanic.com when needed .


on May 20

He called and asked if he could come early to do the job. He arrived and began to locate the issues. We couldn't locate the owners manual so he downloaded one on his phone. He had the problem fixed in 30 minutes and didn't try to up change for anything.

Richard was very friendly and thorough. He took his time to check all possibilities and spent time explaining his findings and answering my many questions. I highly recommend him.


on May 23

According to Richard, the problem has been rectified, however, the replacement lug nut is the incorrect style. He will return to replace it with the correct one when it has been ordered and scheduled.

Richard went above and beyond the call of duty. YM was originally supposed to order my parts for me, but on the day I was supposed to get my car serviced, ended up not having them. I opted to buy the parts myself from a local auto shop and Richard kindly went to go pick them up for me. He arrived in a timely fashion and was VERY communicative the entire time, explaining every process of his work to me as he went. He stayed longer than he was being paid to ensure that he had covered all the parts of the job and left nothing out and even spoke to my mechanic from back home to get pointers on the job and my cars history. Even though my car could not be totally fixed that day because another problem was discovered, Richard gave top rate service. EXCELLENT MECHANIC!


on June 01

I was very satisfied with the service. He was able to pinpoint the cause of the problem in about 5 or 10 minutes and he was absolutely correct. I plan to call them again if I ever have any problems in the future. Thanks Richard!


on June 03

Two things I must express. When I'm required to entered my credit card information I'm very skeptical. My skepticism subsided when I received the call from Mr. Cobb, correction, a text message. If any of you all has being the victim of fraudulent or identity thief one's skepticism are always conscionable and conspicuous. Secondly, I must commend you all for refining and channeling this service into a socially acceptable form, especially for all the single females and mothers of our societies. Personally, I'm unhappy, I didn't received the result in which I was seeking. The exceptional is I'm please with the outcome of Richard's service. He patiently took the time and effort to diagnose and assimilate the problem and made the proper assessment for repairs. I give thanks to the establishment and to Richard, this is a vey important service you all are rendering, convenient and competitive. Saving an individual as myself both time and money. MAY THE LORD GIVE YOU ALL PEACE AND BE KIND TO ALL OF YOU ALL.

I highly recommend Richard, he is very professional. I had two appointments with him and both times he was prompt, kind and helpful. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and also explained what he was doing and why. Richard also properly diagnosed and fixed the issues I was having with my car. If I need to utilize YourMechanic again in the future, I will book with Richard.

I had incorrectly diagnosed my car as needing new belts but when Richard took a look at it, he saw that they just needed to be tightened. He was honest about the fact that I wasn't in need of anything new and now my belts are working great. Thank you!
