PHILADELPHIA, PA, November 30, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- We know auto repairs. It's a vital part of running an extended auto warranty company. But we also know that many people don't know much about automotive repairs outside of what they have heard at a mechanics shop, so we compiled what we think are five extremely important tips that should help you save money on those costly repairs.
It can't be stressed enough, but you must keep up with your car's routine maintenance. That means changing the oil when scheduled, checking fluids like coolant, and checking the braking system. This can keep repair bills down. In addition, not following the regular maintenance on a car can void the manufacturer's warranty.
Unless it is required by your car's warranty, don't feel obligated to use the repair shop at the dealership. There are many reputable independent auto repair shops and they are often cheaper. Ask your friends and family members for a recommendation if you are unsure which shops in your area are trustworthy.
Make sure that the auto repair shop you go to offers a warranty on their services. There are plenty of repair shops that will do a shoddy job, and there is nothing you can do about that if you have no warranty. A warranty will give you the opportunity to get the problem fixed for no charge.
Consider how well kept an auto repair shop is when making your decisions. A sloppy shop can be a sign that the workmanship you are about to receive will be pretty sloppy as well. Opt for the auto repair shop that keeps its floors and space clean of tools and rubble. It's not a guarantee of great workmanship, but it's a good sign that you'll receive the service levels you'd like.
Make sure you get quality parts to fix your car. While you can usually get cheaper prices if you get used parts from a junk yard there is no way of knowing how long these parts will last. We would recommend spending a little more on brand new parts that come with a guarantee, and be sure to get a copy or print out of the warranty for your personal records.
