I've been an automotive technician since 2005 and am dealer trained and certified. I've worked with GM, the Navy, and fleets. I specialize in air conditioning, emissions, diesel, driveability, and front end work, but am comfortable working on all makes and models. I'm a Marine Corps Reservist and work hard to get each job done correctly and to the highest standard possible.
Richard is currently not taking new appointments.
Great experience. Showed up on time, diagnosed the car and found the issue. Got the necessary part needed & installed. Definitely recommend to others. Great Job.

Showed up on time was very friendly and polite. Found the problem, went and got the part and fixed the all issues. Great experience. Came to my home no problems or mess. What an outstanding guy, great work. Highly recommend his services. The end cost was quite a bit below what I was quoted. Now that is a first
Very professional and honest. He arrived early and was ready to go. Also, informed me about the issues of my car in great detail. Next time a check engine goes on or my car is acting funny I will be surely be requesting him!! It was a great experience . I would highly recommend!!
Richard came right on time. He was very patient and knowledgeable, listening to all my concerns and showing me all the various problems he found. I booked him for just an inspection, and it was very thorough and broken down into priority levels, which is exactly what I needed and wanted. Definitely recommend him!
Richard was professional, knowledgeable, and listened to my concerns. He left my driveway in the same condition without any spills or mess which was very much appreciated being that I live in an HOA area with strict policies against stained driveways. I would definitely recommend him.
Richard came to our house to do a diagnosis on our minivan. He took the time to test drive it so he could see the problems firsthand and asked me questions about what was going on with it. After he was done, he explained everything that the van needed and what was the most immediate need. Richard was super personable and very knowledgeable. Love that he used to work at a Pontiac dealership so he knew exactly how to change our air filter (which we already knew could be pretty tricky!) Would definitely recommend Richard and hope he can work on our van again in the future!
My coworker told me about Yourmechanic so I decided to give it a try. I work Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm and I dread spending my lunch hour or a day off at the shop. Richard showed up exactly on time and finished my oil change and air filter replacement in less than 40 minutes. It was a piece of cake and only took 5 minutes out of my busy day to meet him at the lobby and show him where my car was. I am booking Richard again in January when I get my brake rotors and pads replaced. Highly recommend!
Showed up on time, did the pre inspection very well. No complaints at all on my end. Was honest about what he found and thought of the car. Called me as well to make sure I understood everything.
Excellent experience with Your Mechanic and especially impressed with Richard. He communicated with me prior to showing up for the appointment and was extremely professional. He fully explained everything to me prior to completing the work and then went through everything with me after to make sure I was satisfied. I also had some additional work that I wanted to get done and he set up the quote on the spot and completed that work as well.
This was my first time using YourMechanic and it couldn't have been better. It was so convenient and Richard was very professional. It was also very apparent he had many years of experience and I was able to trust my car with him, knowing it was being well taken care of. I will definitely be requesting him again!
Exceptional service. Very knowledgeable and willing to explain everything in a friendly manner. Would highly recommend and I've already booked another appointment.
Richard was about 30 minute early which was perfect for me. He was honest that we didn't need a brake pad replacement and was able to help me diagnose what the real problem was. Highly recommended!
There was no waiting for Richard to arrive as he came about 20 minutes early. Had all the necessary tools to do the job. He performed the changing of the crankshaft position sensor in less then the time alotted (which I just knew couldn't be done). Access to this component is fairly restricted. I know this because I attempted to change this myself. I'm very,very pleased with the work Richard performed and WILL have him back to do other work on my car........Thank you, Richard for a job well done.
Richard did an outstanding job in a very professional way. I can see why your company hired him. He surpassed my expectations and if there is future work needed on our cars hopefully he will do job for us.
Hired Richard for a Pre-Purchase Inspection on a 16 year old Ford Excursion. He called the day before the appointment to confirm. Asked questions about what my primary concerns with were the vehicle. He was on time and provided a very detailed analysis of the current condition of the vehicle. I would highly recommend him.
He was great, he showed up on time and was quick. Very nice and professional. Will definitely be using this service again. He let me know of a couple things wrong and sent in a quote for that too, which I will most likely be taking them up on. My boss heard about it and ran out to talk to Richard before he left about getting work done on his vehicle.
Replaced starter in under an hour. Much less time/hassle than I'd spend going to a shop. And I got to sit in the comfort of my own home while it was repaired.

Richard was extremely professional from start to finish. Prior to coming to my home, Richard called to let me know when he would be arriving. Upon arrival, he informed regarding what he would be doing and the approximate time that he would need to complete the service. What I was extremely impressed with was the manner in which he informed me regarding the recommendations for my car. There was never any attempt to pressure me into adding on a service that I didn't need. I will be using the Your Mechanic service for all my car's future needs.
Called before getting here and arrived on time. Completed job and let me know that he couldn't see anything that needed work. That was welcome news. Good job Richard.
Excellent service with Richard. He was early, worked very diligently, was thorough, and tested the car very well. It was a great first experience with Your Mechanic, and Richard. Thank you Richard
I took a few days to post a review -- to test out the health of the new starter that Richard replaced. But just as I expected, based off his professionalism and attention to detail, the car is running great several days later. He provided a great service experience, arrived early, and I trusted that he correctly diagnosed the problem and fixed it. I couldn't ask for a better experience. Thank you, Richard!
Richard was just awesome. He called to ask if I prefer he'd come earlier which I greatly appreciated. He worked quickly, gave me great advice, was so friendly, and made sure I was happy before leaving. I cannot recommend Richard enough.
I was out of town when the starter on our Honda CR-V failed. According to my wife Richard did an excellent job in quickly diagnosing and fixing the problem.
Richard was very courteous, professional and knowledgeable. He was able to diagnose the problem and make the necessary repairs in a timely manner.
prompt. came with wrong battery. quickly went to purchase correct battery and finish up job in no time. Highly recommend Richard and this service.
Richard was professional, on time, and really pushed for me to get my exhaust leak fixed much faster than excepted. My car sounds great again.
Richard was great and on time. His knowledge of my vehicle was superb. Took care of things in a very efficient and PROFESSIONAL manner.
Richard was fast, well mannered and knowledgeable. I would recommend him and will call again when I need automotive repairs or service.
Well didn't get car fixed. It wasn't his fault though. Turns out I have blown head gasket. I'm going to try some of that head gasket sealer crap. Hopefully I can get a few more months outta the car. Richard was very well manner and professional.

He performed a basic inspection, connected his device and said there was an emission leak issue (which I already knew). And said that the problem I was having with car was that my transmission was going out.
