Hired timothy to do all 4 brake pads, he came out with parts, did an inspection, found my pads werent bad after all. So all he charged for was the inspection. Then he gave me a lot of prioritised advice, i will definitely have him back to do the work as i can afford it. Thanks

Tim re-arranged his scheduled day off to put in new alternator that a new battery 2 days earlier did not solve problem. Very sincere and much appreciated to correct this as soon as possible.

Timothy took the time to look outside the box in order to diagnose my cars problem even though the diagnostics couldn't be run due to Honda's inability to make anything simple. Thanks to Timothy I now know what I'm up against and am currently working on a solution.

Timothy was awesome! Knew what he was doing. Spent hours trying to fix the problem myself finally called in the calvary. Tim to the rescue! Thanks so much!

This is my first time to use YourMechanic. Extremely good experience with Timothy. Looking forward to meet him again.

on December 11

Tim showed up early and had all the parts with him. He understood what was wrong and went right to work in inclimate weather. He got the job done in the right amount of time. He also went over the "bucket" list of things my car needed as I have a lot of deferred maintenance. He helped me pick out the most important things to take care of first as I have a limited amount of money

My mechanic was Timothy. I had the best experience working with him. He was extremely knowledgable, professional, and really took pride in his work. I would gladly recommend him in the future. What an outstanding guy!

Timothy was courteous and very knowledgeable, will definitely use him again in the future and will recommend him by name to all my people here in the U.S Army. Thank you again Tim

on March 27

He's an awesome mechanic! Punctual, respectful, courteous, friendly, and he did a great job! Hopefully he remains our mechanic because I will be getting some new brake pads shortly. Highly recommend him and YourMechanic services.

Excellent service. Timothy performed a thorough buyer's inspection on a used car I was considering. He took the time needed for a detailed evaluation.

on April 04

Unfortunately customer service at your Mechanic had double booked us for the appointment that we had scheduled at noon on April 1st and Timothy went out of his way to get the work done. He got here at 4-4:30 pm when he was scheduled at 12 pm and did the job which wasn't an easy job especially since it was a hot day and he already had a full days work. Timothy was amazing and made up for the mistake made by customer service.

on March 29

Tim showed up right on time. The job took longer than quoted and had other appointments booked, but stayed until the job was completed. If and when I need other issues with my vehicle, I will call Tim back to do the work.

Timothy arrived a 1/2 hour early and finished the job on time. His work is impeccable. He has never failed to diagnose the problems. I will always recommend Timothy

Best experience. Tim came right on time, did awesome job on my car and I m glad I tried "your mechanic". I will definitely use this app again. Thanks

on March 07

Tim was incredibly friendly and helpful. He showed up and was done in 30 minutes, he even checked out all of my fluid levels just to make sure i was good to go.

on April 19

Timothy has been to my house twice to fix my Windstar Van. He was professional, friendly and quite informative. I would recommend him to anyone who would like quality car repairs.

on February 24

It was a crisp Feb. Morning, the birds were chirping, the air was fresh. Each of God's little creatures toiling about, everything so alive, except for the camshaft synchronization sensor on my 2005 Kia Sedona. Timothy showed up at the scheduled time, tools in hand. The service was prompt and informative. We all want a fair shake when dealing with mechanics, and I can assure you Tim's the man for the job.

on September 09

I am very pleased with Your Mechanic and Tim Holder. I would definitely consider this company and request Tim Holder for any future work or issues with my vehicles. If your car breaks down and you are lucky enough to be at home (or just want it towed home) what better way to get the repairs done? In addition they give your car a complete inspection looking for any problems that are developing. I highly recommend Your Mechanic and Tim Holder.

I think Timothy was a very skilled and knowledgeable mechanic who addressed all my concerns about my vehicle. And he was always very professional at all times. He did an outstanding job on my vehicle brakes.

on February 16

Second time we've had Tim work on our daughter's car and we weren't disappointed. Professional and super knowledgeable and stuck with it all the way through even though it took longer than expected.

on September 06

I marked Timothy arriving on time. Actually, he was 20 minutes late but he communicated properly that he was going to be late and when he was in transit. That was acceptable to me. He proceeded with the analysis without getting distracted by my frequent questions and comments. I basically only needed the oil change service but I appreciate having a to-do list with further needed repairs as I can afford them. The service is a needed alternative to dealer and independent shops, which are loaded with facility and management overhead. Keep up the good work.

on February 01

This was my first yourmechanic appointment and Timothy was great!! He checked my brakes and gave me a reasonable estimate for repair that I will have him do soon. Thanks

Third time we have used YourMechanic. Very happy with your services! Both mechanics we have had were superb & we felt like we paid a great price for your services. :) Thank you!

on August 29

Timothy was extremely personable and accomodating. I was worried the covered area at my apartment wouldn't be enough room, but he had no problem working with the space. He was extremely knowlegable and took great care of my car.

on August 26

Tim was excellent. He came earlier the appt to accommodate both mine and his schedule. Made sure car was running and fixed any diagnostic errors found after his repair was done. I will definitely be using this service again



Saturn Ion

Tim is a professional, trustworthy and experienced mechanic. He took the time to explain what and why he is doing things. He efficiently and expertly changed a wheel bearing on my 2003 Saturn. Problem solved.

on July 21

The overall service I got was satisfactory, I was pleased with the work preformed and his knowledge regarding engines. I had multiple leaks from engine components so the job was time consuming. it was a hot day and Tim completed the work in the estimated allotted time frame. I would recommend his services to anyone looking to get repair work done on their vehicle.

on December 02

Timothy was terrific, highly knowledgeable and very personable. I had scheduled an appointment to have my daughter's O2 sensors replaced, but after he got here and assessed the situation, he said that we didn't need them replaced. He cleaned out a few areas that might have been causing the problem which reset the check engine light. I didn't get charged for anything except a diagnostic and the gas treatment he put in the car. The repair shop we had originally checked with had said the sensors needed replacing and quoted us $400 to do so and I'm sure if we had gone there instead of with Timothy, they would have been replaced without actually fixing the problem. Timothy was up front about everything he was doing in the car and gave us a list of possible upcoming maintenance items. I loved the service and will definitely use it again.
