Very accommodating and efficient!


on May 01

Very professional. Exceeded what I had in mind when it comes to mobile service. It was also a positive experience to be able to see the part that failed.


on April 26

Excellent Service. My original appointment was to replace brakes pads/discs as recommended by dealer but actually they are still good for another year minimum when inspected by Theodores. I appreciate his honesty and transparency. Instead he fixed minor issues that needed immediate attention. Highly recommend him.

Theo is very dedicated and hard working. It was pouring rain when he changed oil for our car. He just followed his process and got things done in the heavy rain. Thank you.


on April 15

Punctual, kind and very professional. He gave me an indepth diagnosis of my car and recommended repairs. His confidence gave me relief that my car was in skilled hands. I highly recommend!

Theodore always does such a great job! Gets it done fast, always answers questions, and is very pleasant. Would absolutely recommend. :)

Ford F-150

Theodore was right on time. Understood exactly what was needed to be done and got right to work. I visited a few times during his work and every he was working hard without a blink. Super polite and professional, and then suggested some future sessions that would keep my truck working great. He said take it for a test drive and right away, my truck purred again. What a great service.


on March 21

I booked an appointment for an "engine indicator on" check, but we found a couple more issues with my car. Theodore fixed them all on the same day! He bought all the parts needed and repaired everything while I was working at home. I liked it very much because I didn't have to drive anywhere and buy anything. It was my second time I used YourMechanic and I highly recommend this service!


on May 19

Theodore was great! Through, prompt, and knowledgeable. Help to diagnose root issue. Will use again if needed.


on March 20

Great as always. Did a pre-inspection on his own time to confirm the problem, got the parts and fit me in the next day even though his calendar was full. I have been recommending Ted to all my friends.


on March 14

Theodore was great. He is meticulous, he shared a lot of knowledge with me, he stayed until the job was done, he was prompt, he cleaned up the work area well afterward. He even gave me some tips for DIY work I was doing on the car. And when some billing issues arose, he helped resolve them. I thought it went very well.


on March 13

Theo was courteous and professional in his approach to inspecting my car. He looked in and around the car, under the hood, inspected the interior, and ultimately took the car for a test drive. He checked fluid levels and coloration; tire pressure and tried depth; paint and exterior trim; and noted overall condition. All-in-all a very positive experience with a knowledgeable pro!

Jeep Commander
on March 11

Theo has fixed my truck several times now. 2007 Jeep Commander with LOTS of miles on it. He has replaced the water pump when the truck overheated and had to be towed home, replaced the alternator when the truck wouldn't start, replaced battery parts when the truck wouldnt start and had to be towed home, and now he just replaced the starter when the truck would not start again! Each time he has come out, the truck is not working at all. It's always working perfectly before he leaves! He is very professional - lots of communication and I totally trust him to fix the truck in an honest way. He will tell you options if you have more than one, and he does his job quickly and very well. I really hope he is always around, because I feel like I have a mechanic I trust and one that can keep my truck running as long as possible. Thumbs way up.


on April 16

Extremely capable, confident in his diagnosis and ability combined with a great sense of humor. My vette has a new mechanic!


on March 11

Theodore was very responsive, very professional by performing all the required inspections on the car. He also gave me some tips for stick shift and was kind enough to answer all my questions.


on March 08

This was my First time using my mechanic due to the convenience of them coming to you and cost less than a shop. OUr issue was the coolant level dropping in the reservoir tank with no visible leaks. Theodore contacted me when he was on his way and to also let me know traffic was heavier than usual so he would be a little late. What I really liked was the GPS tracking so I could see where he was and how soon he would be arriving. Theodore didn't find any leaks and could not determine what exactly may be causing the problem, but he was very thorough in explaining everything he tested and inspected. Even though he couldn't determine the issue, it gave me peace of mind that everything checked out good including the head gasket which is what I was really worried about. He did mention one scenario that may be causing the coolant level to drop so at this time we will just keep an eye on it. And if something does need to be replaced, I will absolutely be using Your Mechanic again.


on March 07

Theodore is very skilled. He found the problem quickly. To my surprise, he's already got the parts on the way here. So the initial inspection appointment also had the problem fixed. In addition, he helped me with other problems. He is also a very nice guy and easy to communicate. He gave me advice on any further potential problem that might happen on the car model based on his years of experience.


on March 04

He was very nice, he listened, was honest about our car and situation, didn't try to talk us into doing things that were not going to help or would have been uselesss inevitably. I will definitely use the service again and request him.


on April 23

Theodore is awesome, he is patient and he went through step by step with me. Awesome mechanic, will use him again.


on February 26

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 May 16

He's worked on multiple cars for us and always does a great job. We'll continue using Theodore.


on September 08

Theodore went above and beyond what services I needed for my car! Also gave a lot of honest and great advice on possible future repairs I might need. He's awesome!!!

Theodore was meticulous and thorough...he was professional, on time and pleasant. He had several recommendations that I plan to follow up on soon. He provided me total confidence with his work and his manner. I think I have found my regular mechanic. Thank you.


on October 08

Theodore was prompt, courteous and great at what he does. He answered any questions I had and most importantly tried everything until we got the car started! YourMechanic is a great service that comes straight to your home / office and it's what I needed. Cheers Theodore!


on August 09

It was a great experience for my first time using the your mechanic service. Had full brake job. Theodore was very professional. He explained every part of the job, suggested further problems that should need attention but wasn't high pressure. Was very prompt, and cleaned up the whole area after job was done. I would recommend him to my friends.


on October 10

I used Theodore services for my Dodge Charger breakdown. He not only inspect the issue and repair it but also look into other parts of my car and valuable suggestions. I will use his services again. It also more cost effective.


on October 13

Theodore was very knowledgeable. I called him in to look at my door lock problem and he was able to find out what the real issue was. In addition of that, he also spotted some damages under my door panel done by the car dealership where I bought my car, and also pointed out that the car battery that came with the car was half of the size of the factory one. I was really grateful to have him as my mechanic. He already saved me a fortune and I would recommend him to anyone that needs a helping hand. Good job Theodore!


on August 10

A friendly, professional and competent person. He arrived promptly, confirmed my prognosis, suggested additional repairs and went above and beyond by fixing a few minor issues without my asking. Great guy - highly recommend him.


on May 10

Theodore explained the problems with my car in a clear and candid way, was not pushy at all on getting them fixed, and provided a great recommendation on what I should fix now vs what might not be a problem and can wait. The dealership I went to before mentioned an engine leak which would be $700+ to fix, but after inspection, Theodore recommended that it's not worth the money to fix at this point, showed and explained the problem to me and what to keep an eye on to see if the problem gets worse.


on August 13

Came over on time and just when i thought the problem wouldnt get solved, Theadore came through and got my car running. He even helped with other repairs on my car within the same day and got it all taken care of.
