Shaun is an awesome mechanic and even better person! He took the time to explain what he was doing, step by step. Answered any questions I had, and even took time to inspect my vehicle & give me a few tips on maintenance! Great Guy.

Shaun is very nice and professional. I saw one of review saying he did not say much but I consider this is his strength. He is very efficient and get the job done in a very organized manner. After he completed the job, I chat with him and it was very pleasant to talk to him. I should also point out that he is the most honest auto mechanic I have met.

Shaun did a meticulous expert job on changing the u-joint on my truck. He even had some fast solutions (tricks-of-trade) to get the job done quicker, yet expertly done. And a very friendly professional. I would highly recommend Shaun and if I ever need a another mechanic I will ask for him. By the way my truck is running smoother and like brand new.

Have to say Shaun is well professional and intellectual in conducting himself.Diagnosis of my vehicle condition was advice to me both the pro and con to my satisfaction as a customer which elevated me from Shaun standard of his professionalism considering one in a million mechanic you can find.


on June 16

Shaun was great! He arrived on time, replaced both sensors on the car in a timely manner, he was polite, courteous and attentive to my many questions as he worked. This is the 1st time I have used this company and was a bit skeptical. I have always worked on my own cars but my age and disabilities now prevent me from doing that. So glad I have found someone I can trust and not bite me in the pocketbook. thanks Shaun!!!

As usual Shaun was ever the knowledgeable professional. He jumped into the job and completed it in short order. He is truly a trustworthy auto mechanic, with exceptional skills. I know my repairs or service will be completed correctly and post haste.


on August 06

This was my first time trying this out and I have to say it was great. I have a small list of this I still need done to my vehicle, so I will definitely use this service again.


on July 30

Shaun was fantastic to deal with. He arrived early for appointment advised on the services that was needed and recommended and more importantly advised on services which maybe performed more efficiently at a later time and/or party. He was honest , transparent and professional which is a rare commodity for car service professionals !

Shaun was great! Got there early and got the starter replaced quick! He checked out the car to see what else I needed and gave me an honest suggestion for something that I would not have known about, so someone would not rip me off later. All was good! Appreciated it all! Definitely would car him again if I needed anything done. :)

Shaun was very knowledgeable and explained everything to my understanding about everything that I asked him concerning my car I will recommend him to all my friends if I could that's having trouble with their cars.

Shaun was super nice and explained everything he was doing. He even showed me the broken part so I could understand what needed replacing. I will definitely ask for him if I need any other repairs.

Shaun showed up on time which is always a high mark on my scale. He finished the job within an hour. He explained the repair of the alternator and posted pics and recommendations on the website for my records. I would definitely use this service again and recommend the website to family and friends. No more auto repairs shops for me!!!

It is commonly known that most people have no confidence in Auto Service Shops. Too many times it has been proven that the shops are more concerned with increasing service bills unnecessarily for higher profit, than providing quality service at a fair price. I am one of those skeptical customers, hence the reason why my research uncovered "Your Mechanic", and now I swear by the organization. My recent service was performed by Shaun James, and I have nothing but good things to say about him. He was on time, he was very knowledgeable, professional and willing to educate me on a variety of mechanical aspects of my vehicle that I was unaware of. This gives me the confidence that not only is he competent at what he does, he "has my back" and is only concerned with identifying the service I need, and the things that I should be aware of for the future. When you find a mechanic like this, keep him. They are difficult to find. Remember, I am a true skeptic, and I will never rate anyone or anything this high unless they earn it!


on August 13

very satisfied with Shaun, but your website left something to be desired. Had to call to book my appointment after several tries online left me with an eternal please wait message. Also after discussing possibilities to proceed with Shaun your office will not send him out and told me I need to take car to a shop. this would bw acceptable with an explanation of why. Instead I basically was just told you can't do the work.


on January 25

Shaun showed up promptly on time, 5:00pm on a Sunday, He was very knowledgeable, patient with me in explaining what the problem was in terms I could understand and made suggestions on how I could save money. Who does that?? This was an amazing experience. If I could give him 10 starts I would. Thanks Shaun.


on August 10

Shaun was punctual and very knowledgeable, he went to fix and replaced the rear brake pads right away. no hesitations on his part, meaning he knows what he's doing. i would recoomend him to anyone needing work or their vehicle.


on September 19

Shaun was great. We had him come out to inspect a used car (Mazda 2) at a dealers before purchase. He was very helpful explaining things to me. To a non-expert (obviously) his checks seemed very thorough and he couldn't find anything serious wrong with the car and so far having purchased it (about 2 months ago) neither can we.

My daughter's car experienced some kind of fluid leak when she arrived at her work. Since I was not local at the time, my daughter was not able to confirm the type of fluid leaked. I booked an appointment with Shaun since he repaired my Acura at my home earlier in the year and I was very pleased with his knowledge and the work performed. He arrived on time at my daughter's work place parking lot and was able to diagnose the problem in less than 5 minutes while it was raining hard. The radiator hose leading the water pump became dislodged. Since I worked on cars in the past, he gave me some advice if I were to repair myself. Fortunately, it was an easy fix for me and got my daughter's car ready to go by the time she got off work. I was very surprised Shaun was available on a Sunday! Same day response! I will continue to book with Shaun on any future diagnosing or repair needs. Thank you Shaun!

Both this service and my mechanic Shaun are outstanding! So refreshing - it literally gave me new hope in life that I won't always be at the mercy of the standard brick-and-mortar-mechanic model. Shaun was so incredibly professional, honest, and helpful. I have already recommended mymechanic to my friends.
