Richard was fantastic, extremlely personable guy. He explained everything in detail and what he did step by step. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Richard. Thank you Sir!

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 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.

Richard reached on time at my office location and he was very helpful to understand the problem and to get to root of the problem.

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.

Richard was on time and super nice & professional! He got my brakes done in the time that the quote had estimated and I am SUPER impressed with the whole process of using Your Mechanic for the first time. HIGHLY recommended. Thank you Richard!

Richard is certainly a mechanic I would recommend. He was knowledgeable, professional, and communicated effectively with me throughout the process. Having these services available at home or office is incredibly convenient. He had all of the tools and was finished in less than an hour. This is definitely worth the money spent.

Can't say enough good things about the guy and his work to be honest. If you get this guy you get a good one!

Absolute perfection. On time, honest and very knowledgeable. The online experience was very user friendly. I will definitely be using the service again.

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.

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.

Excellent mechanic. Very understanding and did an awesome job at breaking down what was wrong with my car and how he was going to resolve the issue. I will definitely be using him again in the future.

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.

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.

Richard was great! He showed up on time, finished earlier than what was expected, and did great work. He did a great job explaining everything that was done and even made suggestions to what I can do to improve my vehicle. I'd definitely recommend and use Richard again.


on October 03

Richard was great. While very efficient and knowledgable, he was also very friendly and personable. I've finally found my go-to mechanic in Nashville.


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.


on October 23

I was extremely pleased with Mr. Coogan. He was early to his appointment and he communicated all information regarding my vehicle. I look forward to future business with 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.

Richard arrived exactly on time (actually about 5 minutes early), and was as friendly and professional as could be. For the sake of total transparency and trustworthiness, he even told me I was welcome to sit and observe if I wanted to, although I declined. He finished the work efficiently, and even came in slightly under the estimate I was given. Super nice guy, and came fully prepared. Didn't even bat an eye, just showed up, got straight to work, and fixed my car for about half of what the shop had estimated. Would recommend any time.

Very professional! Called me 30 minutes after I booked the appointment online (he called two days before the appointment, and over the weekend to boot) to discuss details. He really put us at ease!

Richard arrived on time and started working on the car (brake pad/rotor replacement). Completed his work as promised and my car is back on the road and feels great!


on April 23

He was great. I will definitely be using Richard again. He was really friendly and easy to talk to about my car. He called me before he got there and told me he was not able to do the A/C diagnostics and that was fine. He called me when he was on his way and when he arrived. He took real good care of it. He even showed me how bad my control arm was. He was very polite and he did a great job on my car. I have already recommended him to two people and they lived him too.

My appointment with Richard was at 2 and he was here right at 2. Richard came to my office, so all I had to do was walk out and hand him my keys to test my breaks. About 30 minutes later, Richard called to tell me that he had come with the wrong break pads and would be back with the correct pads shortly. Roughly an hour later, he called me back to let me know that he was done with the job. I walked out of my office and he gave me some recommendations for what I need to look in to replacing. Richard was incredibly fancy and I will absolutely be using in the future.


on March 08

I won't lie..I was very skeptical about this service. Richard, however was amazing. Instantly put my mind at ease. He was prompt and extremely detailed. He will be my go to for all non routine maintenance!
