Getting your vehicle repaired after when it is not operating correctly is important. In many instances the vehicle can't be driven until the necessary repairs have been completed.
Many people are weary about this type of service because if you do not already have a trusted source for auto repair, you don't really know the quality of the work that you are getting.
If you need to get your vehicle repaired it is important to do some checking before you take your vehicle to anyone.
Our top recommendation is to take full advantage of all the hard work we have done for you. Use the MAP service center search to find a few locations close to you.
You can also ask your friends, family, and co-workers for recommendations. Chances are some of them have had to use an auto service facility at some point. They can tell you who they went to and the quality of the work.
If your vehicle is drivable and you have the time available you may benefit from getting at two or three written estimates. MAP auto repair shops will do this for you free of charge. They will give you an itemized list of the necessary repairs and the cost of them.
If you notice that one of the estimates for vehicle repairs is more than the others you can request clarification.
A higher cost does not mean they are beign unfair, and a lower cost may not mean that it is the best choice. It could be that they offer better quality products and your car will run better when they are done then if you let one of the other businesses do the work.
Most quality vehicle repair service centers will stand behind the quality of their work. You want to choose a shop that has a policy in place that they will guarantee the work for a specific amount of time. All MAP service centers offer a minimum warranty of 90 days or 4,000 miles on the work they perform.
If you are not happy with the service or the repairs don't hold up you can return without extra costs. Even if the cost of the initial repairs were covered by an insurance company you don't want to have to deal with poor quality work on your vehicle.
If the need arises you can't avoid visiting an auto repair facility.
You can, however do your own research to ensure you are getting the best quality service at an affordable price.
