Richard was awesome! He came on time and was professional and handled the job with ease. He was friendly and when he ran the diagnostics on my car he was efficient and spoke to me the whole time. Thank you for coming out and servicing my car!

I was impressed with the work that Richard did.My slave cylinder needed to be replaced for my 4runner.Thanks alot for the proffesional work.

Inspected vehicle while I was out of town. There was a mix up with Vin number and part not being able to be ordered in time. Richard came out and inspected the problem. Was able to temporarily fix the problem while investigating a possible recall on the part. A mechanic and service you can trust.

Richard was awesome! Very personable, and explained everything in terms I could understand. Took the time to show me the work my car could use and the work he had done. My first experience using "YourMechanic" and I'll be using it again!

Richard was great. There was an issue with rim rubbing brake caliper. Totally not his fault. He stuck around when he didn’t have too. Truly appreciate him for that. Great mechanic, great service. Thanks Richard

Awesome job!!! Was probably one of the only good experiences I have had with a mechanic. Had a great attitude and we talked while he was fixing my car, we need more mechanics like him.

Made an appointment for no airflow through my vents. Richard arrived on time. Very professional. He diagnosed and repaired my vehicle in a timely matter. I was very pleased with the service and the convenience of having the work done at my home

Extremely knowledgeable individual. 7:00 a.m. appointment, called the night before and was perfectly on time. The entire experience with this company was phenomenal.


on February 26

Richard sent a text to let me know he was on the way and arrived by the scheduled time. He thoroughly inspected the car the first day, quoted me a reasonable price and then came with the part to be replaced the next day. He worked quickly and neatly even though it was dark (and cold) outside. I was very happy with his service.

He was great. My brakes were making a weird noise so he replaced my break pads. He was very patient with all my questions and he also seemed to work fast but very efficiently. This was my first time using this service but I wish I found out about your mechanic sooner. This service is waaay better then going to a shop and being lied to and made to wait while they just figure out ways to upsale you. Everything about this process with this company was easy, honest, fair, and convenient. I definitely will be using them again. Richard, thank you again.

Absolutely fantastic! Arrived a few minutes early and even did an overview inspection of the car when he finished to let me know if he saw anything else wrong. So happy I found Richard!


on March 17

Very friendly and very knowledgeable! He even took the time out of his day to text me the next day to tell me that he was thinking of my car and the best way to fix it. You couldn't go wrong with this guy.

The entire experience with Richard was very pleasant, and I feel confident that my wife will be safe and free of mechanical issues driving her car when he finished. As other reviews mentioned he was a little early and had completed his preparatory work before his appointment time. I decided to work from home so I could be available if needed. I was a bit late meeting him outside due to my obligations. He let me know that he understood and had a calm demeanor that felt very sincere. My wife went to meet him before I was available to confirm the scope of work requested. After hearing from her why we wanted to have the brake pads (both drum and disc) replaced, he let her know that drum brakes often wear more efficiently and require replacement less often than disc. He told her that he would drive the car for a little while and inspect all of her brake pads to determine if we really did need all of her pads replaced. By the time he had returned I was able to meet with him and ask some further questions and let him know I was also very interested in any other potential issues he may find. He let me know that an inspection was a part of the service confirming what I had read on the website and that he would be diligent in looking over the car. As we conversed he was beginning to remove the wheels and hubs to expose the drum brakes in the rear. As we neared the end of our short conversation he had the brakes exposed and was able to show me with his brake pad gauge that the pads were not in critical need of replacement, possibly saving me the cost of parts and labor on this visit if I wanted to do it closer to their end of life. I asked what the minimum recommended pad thickness was and he was able to respond without hesitation. Since the drum brake pads were about midway to requiring replacement, I decided that it was best to do them during this appointment while I had the help of someone knowledgeable and with the proper tools. After this initial exchange he let me know he would inform me when the job was complete and review anything he found that required attention. He worked quickly and quietly from that point, and I passed by him on the way to run an errand. His attention was entirely on the task at hand and his work space showed the signs of organization that comes as a result of experience. After he informed me that the work was complete, he apologized that it took him longer than he had expected. If he had gone past our scheduled end time it was by a very narrow margin and I had not noticed. At no time did he seem to lose his composure while interfacing with us, or seem as though he need to hurry to be somewhere else. He was very focused on providing the proper care for our vehicle and wanted to see that the job was done correctly. He was sure to inform me of the results of the inspection as well and directed me to review my email for a more detailed report. Since he had given our car a good bill of health his overview was brief but touched on the important parts of his inspection. The detailed report was what I had expected, a breakdown of what areas and components he reviewed and a specific score he listed to represent their condition. I wanted to leave a detailed review of my experience so people could make an informed decision about Richard. My opinion is that Richard is the type of professional that the service industry needs more of. I dread the search for a reliable, friendly, and technically proficient mechanic every time I move. This is the easiest experience I have ever had finding the right person to care for my family's vehicles. If you are looking for the same combination of traits in a mechanic to service your vehicles and value not having a logistical nightmare trying to arrange work at a shop, potentially having a difficult time getting to one, I would recommend you request Richard. He is an excellent exemplar of his trade and a reminder to the service industry of the trust and values that build repeat business. I will be requesting Richard as long as I remain Las Vegas for any service I require.

Richard turned up right on time as scheduled, and completed the repair in a timely and professional manner, even "fixing" the error messages in the computer that had resulted from the initial problem.

Excellent service. Richard was right on time and had the necessary parts to complete the repair. He explained what he was doing and performed additional diagnostics and inspections post-repair. I heartily recommend Richard as a mechanic who is capable, personable, and trustworthy!

Richard is a professional guy, who also is understanding and accommodating. He really helped me out with this brake job a a quirk that happened to both of us. Good looking out Richard! See ya soon. (for my other car)

Richard was on time, professional and very nice. He is very knowledgeable and answered any questions that i had. It was a great experience and I will definitely tell my friends. If we need anything in the future i will ask for Richard. Thank you so much.

Richard showed up on time (actually a few minutes early!) and was ready to get the job done. Everything was completed even quicker than expected. Couldn't ask for anything more.


on April 28

He was punctual, friendly, and professional. He was able to fix my battery connector problem in a timely manner. The car is running well, so I'm satisfied with the work done.


on April 26

Richard showed up on time, he had all the proper tools and parts needed to replace my ball joints. I asked if it would be ok for me to watch while he worked and Richard encouraged me to stay and watch. It is my opinion that he was well qualified and treated my car as his own and I have to say this is the best experience I have ever had getting a car repair. I had no idea that "MyMechanic" existed but I plan to use them in the future as long as the mechanics and work done meets what I observed today.


on April 28

He was awesome at the inspection. I have a 2001 Volvo and most mechanics shy away from Volvos I'd they are not dealer mechanics. Richard eased all my worries re: what needed to be done and the price. Were have one more job to do, then Zion and Valley of the fire here we come! Thank you Richard! Thank you your mechanic!


on May 02

Richard was my savior. He was very professional, polite and fast. He came on time, had the parts and just executed. Without Richard and YourMechanic, I wouldn't know what to do. I was stuck in Vegas because my car broke down. These guys were easy to book an appointment with, inspect and execute. I can't recommend these guys enough.

Great service! Richard was on time and all work scheduled that day was done under the time expected. I look forward to having my car serviced by him from now on. Thank you!

Richard has become our official mechanic! He contacted us the night prior to his morning visit, he was on time, and quickly fixed our AC High Pressure Hose in a very efficient and professional manner.
