Second time having Richard as my repair man! Very impressed with both instances. Richard was prompt in arriving on both occasions. He exemplified my expectations when he pulled up in his vehicle truly looking like a mobile repair shop. His professional appearance was only upstaged by his knowledge and passion for what he does.

Richard was very quick to diagnose the problem. I felt he was very knowledgeable and really enjoyed what he was doing. It was very comvient to have him come to me as appose to waiting in a repair shop for hours. My first experience was very positive. Thanks Richard!

My check engine light came on earlier this week. I was so afraid to drive my car due to a previous issue that ended with a blown engine. After researching on Google I located 'YourMechanic'. I was impressed by the professional website and the option to even download an amazing App! The quoted price for an oil change including inspection I was blown away with the competitive pricing. The cheapest I've ever paid for an oil change. Richard discovered that there wasn't anything major with the engine, just need to replace my gas cap according to the rest. Lastly I was extremely impressed with My Mechanic, RICHARD COOGAN!! He was prompt, polite, professional, FAST and educational. I am so impressed with this company and service. I will be referring my friends and family. You all definitely have a loyal customer!! Thank you so much Richard, continue to do amazing things for people like me. You are a savior.

First time I've ever used Your Mechanic and I am very pleased. Richard came to my house and replaced a valve cover gasket. I will definitely use the him again.

Oh my gosh what a great service! Saved us hundreds by not having to go to the dealership. We thought our problem was one thing and Richard promptly diagnosed it as something else. So thankful for his honesty and knowledge.

Richard was a pleasure to work with. Completed my repair quickly and informed me about upcoming items that will need attention. Highly recommend him.


on May 01

He was great and friendly just like the last time. He called me well before his appointment to tell me tat he would not be able to make the scheduled time, He said he could rescheduled and come later today or the net day. He came an hour earlier than the rescheduled time and he called to let me know the he would be arriving earlier. He finished the work in less than an hour and he changed the labor costs on the job since he didn't need to do two hours worth of work.


on September 02

Always very professional and polite. Shows up on time and finds the problem and tries to get your vehicle fixed as soon as possible. If you don't need something done he will let you know so you are not paying for stuff you don't need.

Shows up on time and fixes the problem. I have used Richard several times already and he always does a great job. He is very friendly and professional and takes the time to talk and explain what needs to be fixed. If you don't need something he will let you know so you are not spending money for things you don't need.

Richard did an outstanding job fixing my wheel bearing for a 4 runner. His diligence, positive attitude, and attention to detail really showed and I would recommend his services to anyone.


on May 16

Just like the first time I had him service the vehicle, he was outstanding. Inspected the vehicle first, and within about 5 minutes identify, correctly, what the issue was, order parts, and had it fixed the very next afternoon. Once more, saved a fortune over quotes that garages had given me, for what may have been a misdiagnosed issue anyways. Richard to the rescue once more.

Another great experience. Please do not hesitate to use this service. The pricing and convenience is second to none! Great job Richard, and I have more orders to follow.

I absolutely love the convenience of this service. Richard has performed service on three of my cars with total success. I hope future trends push this to great heights! Thanks again Richard for your continued dedication.

This was my first time using this service and honestly I was quite skeptical. Fortunately, there was no need for worry because Richard was prompt, curteous, and very knowledgeable. I believe he even arrived 5 minutes early. He correctly diagnosed and repaired my vehicle to its true glory! I know I will book again if anything else goes wrong!

Richard was more than helpful. I am from out of town. And having something go wrong with my car was the last thing I was expecting. He helped me out tremendously.

Richard is great. He is very knowledgeable and does great work. When we didn't need to do something that the dealer told us we needed, he told us why and didn't want us to spend money we didn't have to. I would definitely recommend him.

I used YourMechanic for the first time last month and had an amazing experience. After being taken advantage of by another mechanic company, I was very hesitant to try it. Richard Coogan was incredibly helpful and a pleasure to work with. I will definitely use this company in the future and let all of my friends know about it too! Thank you Richard!!!

Richard is very professional. He has a great customer service attitude. He was better than on time. He was quick and very knowledgeable. He is a very good asset to this service. Because of his service I will be recommending your service to as many people as I can. It was a pleasure not having to get in the grease and have someone that I would trust with any of my vehicles. Thanks again for your service.

After some weather related rescheduling, Richard arrived on-time and completed an oil filter housing gasket replacement on my Ford Explorer in a timely manner. He also pointed out that some of my suspension components will need replacement soon. I will book him again in the future.
