Maintenance & Repair Overview FAQs

We want to save our customers money but we also want to save them hassle.  In some cases the price difference between repairing or using a second hand part is not significantly different than the cost of replacing with a new part. 

We also use our past experience on the longevity and efficacy of repairing particular components and weigh it against the cost comparison and longevity of a new part.  If the different options cost to benefit ratio are not obvious we will often give two options for you to decide. 

We do not give a warranty on used parts and temporary fixes so that is also something to consider.

Possibly in the short term but we can’t guarantee in the long-term.

This is something that we are working on but it can be challenging to offer standard package rates since we deal in so many years, makes, and models of cars that require different types and amounts of fluids at different intervals.

We don’t want to pass the higher cost of more expensive vehicles on to owners of smaller cars by only having standard packages that cover all models. Also packages can often include service items that your car doesn’t need at the time. 

At this point we have taken a more custom approach to assessing each vehicle's actual needs at the time of service, as well as manufacture recommendations, and providing custom recommendations and estimates. 

If you have any ideas or input on this we’d love to hear from you at [email protected]

Yes you can wait in our customer lounge as long as you’d like, though you may want to find out how long we expect it to take. Diagnosing some issues can take considerable time and it is advised that you plan to drop it off unless advised otherwise by us.

Diagnosing problems takes expertise, equipment, tools, and labor hours, so yes we do charge for this.

For some services we have standard service charges. For a labor rate line we have two different rates depending on the type of work. Standard for general types of repair, and Advanced for more specialized types of work such as electrical, engine overhauls, etc. Contact us for a quote on the work you need done.

Yes, we have standards in how we measure and make recommendations on different components. On our inspection sheets we have specific numbers for what would categorize a component as Green, Yellow, Red. A few examples would include:

brake fluid (moisture content %, visual condition), coolant (boiling point temperature, visual condition), tires (mm. tread depth, age, weather cracking, suppleness), disc brake pads/ drum brake shoes (mm. Thickness, glazing, seperation), battery (CCA output vs battery rating, age, cell condition),

There are also many items that have recommended manufacture service intervals such as transmission fluid, timing belts, fuel filter, water pump, etc. 

On our quotes, we will specify if an item is Red or Yellow to help you understand the urgency of an item.  Not all items are urgent, but if left too long they can have cascading effects that may cost you more money in the long run.. an example might be loose suspension/ steering components. This can lead to the wheels being out of alignment and cause uneven tire wear.
