What to look for in a Mechanic in Phoenix

We’re lucky to live in such a vibrant city. With as much to do as anywhere else, including beautiful scenic locations only a few minutes’ drive from any given location, representation in every major pro sports league, numerous entertainment outlets from intimate local concert venues such as those that attract acclaimed and international talent to Downtown Phoenix in venues such as Crescent Ballroom, Valley Bar, Trunk Space on over to Mill Ave. in Tempe and Old Town Scottsdale… Well, there’s plenty to do in the Phoenix area.

The Auto Shop has been serving this wonderful town for close to 40 years now, and has certainly seen a lot change. It seems like everywhere you look, there’s a new condominium high rise being built up and down Central Ave., and we’re as excited as any who live around here to see what other wonders will be brought to our home area of central Phoenix. We’re proud to be the mechanic near you, and to offer our insights on your auto repair problems anywhere in Phoenix.

Because we’ve been here so long, we wanted to note a few features that we feel are important for your local auto repair shop to have, and we thank you for shopping local!

Is there a customer lounge to wait in during your oil change in Phoenix?

Oil changes don’t need to take long. At The Auto Shop, not only is our customer lounge well stocked with bottled water and coffee, it’s also roomy and clean (without that acrid smell you’re used to at national chain quick-lube oil change shops in Phoenix) with Wi-Fi connectivity for those busy professionals who need to stay online while waiting on their car.

Are they well-liked on Yelp?

Everyone wants to know who the best mechanic in Phoenix is, but sometimes sites like Yelp! can embellish results or bury worthy businesses underneath other results (or even ads). At The Auto Shop we are consistently contacted through Yelp! on its mobile app and are as welcoming with feedback there, on our Google listing, as we are with every customer.

While not always the full story, aggregate review sites can help you find a quality auto service shop in this great city.

Whether or not we’re currently your first choice, we believe that even by showing our level of dedication and care in these small areas provides a worthwhile experience for our customers. It’s part of why Phoenicians and business owners from all areas of the city trust us for oil changes, major car repair, fleet maintenance services and more.
