Take the Guesswork out of Auto Repair Costs

When you need a repair completed on your vehicle it is best to get several estimates. I have always suggested that it is important to get estimates from several sources: independents, chains, and dealerships. The key is to find a facility that is honest, reliable, and affordable. A shop that has ASE certified technicians in the area that your vehicle needs repair is a must. If you are new to the area remember to check the Better Business Bureau to locate a business that has a good record and is a BBB Accredited Business. Also ask friends and colleagues for input on a quality repair facility.

Now the internet has a handy resource for drivers – RepairPal.com. RepairPal.com is a portal to get an estimate for a repair, find a repair facility, and to keep your repair records online. RepairPal gives estimates in a range of what you should expect from dealerships and at independents. Even though the estimate range is sometimes wide, it does give you a ballpark price. Got an iPhone…you can even get the application while you are on the go.
