JB Auto Care Offers Advice for Consumers Seeking Vehicle Repairs
As recession-era motorists are less likely to purchase new cars, many are learning the importance of routine automotive maintenance. Massachusetts-based auto service company, JB Auto Care provides additional insight into these costs.
NEW YORK, NY, July 16, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to a recent article from Forbes, the American economic upset has many motorists opting to keep their older cars. In fact, it states, "the average age of vehicles currently on the road reaching an all-time high of 10.8 years according to the market research firm R.L. Polk." While these statistics may be particularly troubling for car dealers, auto mechanics may benefit from the increasing need for repairs. Serving motorists in the south shore area of Massachusetts, JB Auto Care understands the need for routine maintenance, and while many drivers are reluctant to purchase related services - it could save them a great deal of money in the end.
Forbes suggests five tips on how to deal with auto mechanics to make sure the end result is not only beneficial to the customer, but to the mechanic as well. These tips include maintaining clear communication, keeping a clean car, having reasonable expectations, staying available for contact and trusting the mechanic to do his or her job. Following these suggestions along with a set schedule of routine maintenance allows drivers to extend the life of their car and have the upkeep total in at a reasonable price. John Nielsen, AAA's Director of Automotive Repair tells Forbes, "[These practices help] prevent breakdowns, and often saves money by allowing drivers to make a small repair now rather than a much bigger one later."
Another tip from the article is to find a reliable local mechanic that can continue work on one's car and get to know the vehicle through continued service. Not only does this make it easier for the mechanic to provide quick service, it establishes a secure relationship where the customer can trust that they are receiving fair prices. JB Auto Care endorses these kinds of relationships and strives to maintain its clients through continued superior customer service. The company notes that these practices are often less expensive than working through a dealership.
The company aims to fix problems on the first try, so drivers do no have to worry about being "ripped off" or having to face an unusual amount of visits for repair. However, like the article suggests, JB Auto Care reminds consumers that auto repair is not a free service, and can become costly depending on the vehicle.
However, the company reassures customers by stating, "We say to budget $1,000 per year for older cars to maintain and repair. The average replacement cost of a vehicle is more than $30000, so for $83.33 per month you can drive the car you own at a much cheaper rate."
