A good car mechanic can help keep your car at its best performance.Today, there are thousands of repair workshops, and while mostof them are reliable, there have been a few unfortunate incidents.
Here are fivenecessary things you must check as a precaution before giving your car to any local repair workshop:
#1: Always check the Workshop’s Reviews and Facilities before you give your car for repair.
The internet has made it easy to find out about the quality of services provided by a car repair workshop. Make sure to always check the workshop’s reviews, the kind of facilities and equipment that they have, and the services that they offer.
#2: Check whether the workshop is providing a guarantee on parts.
Before you give your car for a part repair or replacement, verify that the workshop provides a guarantee on the spare parts and the service. Also, please make sure that the spare parts that they offer and install in your vehicle are OEM / OES.
#3: Check whether you will be getting proper updates on your car.
When it comes to getting your car serviced, transparency is paramount. You might not be present at the workshop, but your service provider needs to maintain full transparency and keep you updated about the progress of your car repair or service.
#4: Verify whether the workshop provides a proper bill with all the details at the time of delivery.
It is standard practice to provide an itemized bill with every service. Make sure that the workshop will provide a detailed and itemized bill at the time of delivery. After the service, check that you’re not being overcharged or charged unnecessarily for a service that was not provided.
#5: Check Fuel Gauge and KM(Odometer Reading) before giving your car.
Before handing over your car keys to the workshop, check the fuel level as well as the odometer readings once you’ve reached the service center. Also, get these two marked and noted down in the job sheet or invoice. This will help you find out if the car was misused or driven more than absolutely necessary.
Being practical is crucial, especially when it comes to one of your most prized possessions –your car. These five essential tips will help you stay on the safer side of things. CarFixo
