He called and came in before time. He is good and polite.

Theodore was great! Showed up right to my door with all the necessary tools and parts and made the repairs in no time. Very friendly and skilled in what he does. He was happy to explain to me what the issues were as well as giving me advice about maintenance on the rest of the vehicle. Car runs great now. Couldn't be happier with Theodore and the YourMechanic service. Fantastic and at a very reasonable rate and utmost convenience!!!


on February 26

I have no complaints. Thank you Theodore!

Had a 1:00 PM appointment for a BMW that had not been started in a while. Theodore showed up on time and in 10 minutes had worked out the issue. He was very transparent about the price of the replacement battery and went and bought one and installed it. He then did a great inspection of the car and listed out all the the things that required work. He was never pushy and thoroughly professional. All in all a great experience.


on February 20

Showed up ahead of time and finished the oil change without any issues. While at it, Theodore filled up air in the tires which were low as well. Good friendly and professional guy. Very convenient and decently priced. I will be using the service again! Also, will be recommending it to friends and family.

Always a great experience. Theodore has been out several times to work on several vehicles for me and has always done a fantastic job, pointed out other issues that should be worked on but has never pressured me into doing the work unless I want to. Always professional and accommodating and on time.


on February 21

Theodores was very punctual and he called me in advance of the appointment. He explained why he was there and started the testing of my car immediately. He politely gave me the choice to go to the drive test with hem or not. He completed the test alone and came back after 45 minutes of drive test. He had explained in detail all his findings on the car during his drive test and gave me also the recommendations. He was very professional and polite is all his approach and work he has done. Thank you, Fekede Taeme

Theo was on time. He was very courteous and didn't mind me asking questions from time to time. I felt we had a good rapport. He did a great job of explaining everything to me and pointed out some things to me about the car as well. Says my car should last another 10 years at least..


on February 15

Theodore did an excellent pre purchase inspection and saved me from buying a lemon. His report included pictures and audio and was very detailed. I would 100% use him again!!


on February 14

Helpful and nice. I like the car, however after the feedback I received, I have decided that the best thing will be not to buy it since it had some serious issues.


on February 06

First time with Theodore, just to hear a second opinion on some small oil leaks that were detected at the Audi dealership. I wanted to confirm that the dealership was trying to rip me off ...

I just discovered YourMechanic.com. I decided to try its service. Theodore came a few minutes before the appointment. That does not happen with other services often! You get the 2- or 4-hour window, and serviceman shows usually up at the end of the window, or later. Theodore was better than perfect on this item. He started work immediately, and was done quickly. He explained to me the work done and his recommendations for the future. He showed me worn out parts, which was very appreciated. He asked me to test-drive the car. He noticed the worn wipers and he replaced them (I had a spare pair) for me and refused to charge me for that. He was very polite and patient. That was a great experience, and extremely convenient for me. And pricing was considerably lower than the dealer quote. The invoice came to a little less than original quote. So it is obvious that I will use this service, and Theodore's in particular, again, and encourage my family and friends to use it Thank you Theodore! The system behind the whole operation of YourMechanic.com is also impressive, from the first moment of investigating the site, to the invoice generation. It is very smooth, very modern, efficient, and thorough, with no confusion whatsoever. Quite unusual. It even notified me this morning when Theodore left for the appointment and allowed me to monitor his progress, so I was ready for him when he arrived.


on February 13

He arrived on time and was very professional. He completed the service within an hour which was very good. Totally satisfied with his services.

Came early. Figured out I didn't need the part that I initially thought was the problem. Found and fixed the problem and cost me less that originally thought. Nice and courteous guy.


on January 26

Theodore was on time, very professional, and polite. He answered all of my questions and finished up in a timely manner. I have never had a mechanic come to our home so did not know what to expect. I was extremely pleased!

Theodore is awesome, with his excellent skills, was extremely professional and courteous the whole time he was working on my car.Theodore was on time and diagnosed the problem quickly. He was able to get parts and have it fixed. This was my first time using YourMechanic Service. I was very pleased with Theodore's performance and would refer him to anyone needing service done on their car. I will continue to have him work on my vehicles in the future.


on January 19

Another great appointment with Theodore. He showed up promptly, got the job done right, made sure I was happy with his work, and cleaned up. What more could you ask?


on January 18

Theodore encountered a delay on his previous appointment and promptly let me know that he would be late. Once he did arrive, he answered all of my questions and gave me some helpful tips for future services. He also gave great insight for DIY.

on January 16

Theodore was extremely professional and courteous the whole time he was working on my car. The car needed less work than initially anticipated, so Theodore took the unneeded parts back and took them off of my final bill, which was awesome. He walked me through every step of the process and let me know what to look out for in the future if I should start having issues again. He was great to work with and I would definitely book him again. Thanks!


on January 08

Exceptional. I specifically requested Ted because of the great experience first time around and he exceeded all expectations. Arrived on time, fixed the issues (replaced drive belts that were wearing out), helped me greatly with understanding how to basic maintenance of the car and fixed a few things in the car on his own and didn't charge for it. I have been recommending yourmechanic and Ted to my friends ever since the first time. I don't see myself going back to the days of taking my car to an auto shop anytime in the future.

Excellent diagnosis and service as received before (alternator on prior visit)! Love Theodore, doesn't ever try to give you something unneeded! Will use again!


on January 06

If I could give 50 stars I would, he was extremely professional, polite and did a great job. The world needs more mechanics and people like Theodore!

It is really a pleasant to have Theodore to take care of my issue. After 5 fours of his hard work, my problem has gone and the car is all right after that.

Theodore is great! He let me know he was running a few minutes late, and when he got here it got right to work and got the job done.

Theodore is one of the best mechanic, he knows to go to the root of the issue and fix it. He is very honest and kind. He fixed our vans issue which we had for several months. I recommend him to all the readers here.


on December 12

Theodore was kind, and extremely efficient! Even though I accidentally ordered the wrong wheel bearings (for the back when it was the front that were needed) he went to the trouble of finding what I needed and came back and fixed my wheel bearing in the rain and the dark and on a Sunday during the Seahawks game! Who does that!?? Theodore does, and he gave me a very reasonable quote on other things my 13 yr old car needs. I am more than satisfied with his expertise and experience and coming to my apartment complex to fix my car for me. Thank you Theodore! See you in the next few weeks to get my old car in tip top shape for my 60 minute commute each day. You rock!! I would DEFINITELY recommend Theodore and 'your mechanic ' for any of your cars needs! I am one very happy customer! !

Theo was thorough and professional throughout the inspection. He saved me from making a potentially costly purchase.

Very knowledgeable, polite and prompt...Theodore is the reason I have used Mobile Mechanic on more than one occasion.
