When older automobiles need maintenance and repair, it can get a little costly. Parts become more expensive because of their age and the labor costs multiply as the car takes longer to diagnose. And the chances are good you are driving an older vehicle to stay within your budget, so unexpected repairs you haven’t planned for can be devastating to the wallet. Rather than taking your car to the nearest garage, the best option is to shop around for an affordable quote. But how does one do this search without feeling obligated to the mechanics you talk to?

There is a very easy solution. MiNeeds is a website community where customers post their needed services and let professionals find them for a change. Just look at this Seattle customer looking for someone to repair their older vehicle. They posted their need and instantly all of the local professionals providing auto repair services were notified and given the opportunity to submit an estimate. Three professional mechanics responded to their need, giving the customer an opportunity to see what is out there and decide on a price they can live with, without ever being committed to one offer over the other. This system really takes the pressure off you, the customer, and allows you to make a decision comfortably, peacefully, and on your own terms.

Save yourself the stress and aggrevation of shopping around for a good quote the next time your car fails you. Here are some Seattle auto repair services to get you started. And when you are ready to take it to the next step, post your need and relax!

Auto Repairs Without the Stress

Posted on August 14, 2008. Filed under: Hiring Auto Service and Repair | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Nothing in this world prepares you for dealing with auto mechanics. It is so hard to find someone, whether they be an individual, garage or even the dealer, that you get a trustworthy feeling with right off the bat. And if you don’t know a lot about cars to begin with you end up putting a lot of trust in what the service mechanic is telling you. It’s almost like they put you on the spot, and they will tell you anything to push you over the edge and into making a rational choice. Then to make matters worse, you go with your gut and have your car repaired only to find out after paying a large bill that someone else could have done it for several hundred dollars less. Nobody likes getting ripped off like that, and why should they? It is a feeling that sticks with you for years to come, and speaking from experience it hurts bad. You end up not wanting to bring your car in for service at all, but that can only lead to more of a disaster.

So why not elimiate this stress altogether and make the service mechanics bid for your business? Take a lesson from this customer out in Orting who needed a few repairs to their 2003 Acura. When you have a higher-end automobile, you tend to get overestimated costs for that reason alone. This customer needed a timing belt and brakes, and turned to MiNeeds website for auto repair services. Instead of running from garage to garage and making a bunch of uncomfortable visits, they avoided being put on the spot and let the service providers bid for their needs. By simply posting their request on MiNeeds, they received 5 bids from auto mechanics, ranging from a flat fee of $155 to a per hour charge of $45. No stress, no harsh decisions, and they were left with a few options as far as cost to choose from at their leisure. And to make it even better, they were able to make a decision knowing which providers are certified to work on their brand of vehicle, or even to work on vehicles at all.

Saving time, money and stress will lead to such a happier life. Imagine the time they would have had if they were left to fend for themselves. You can eliminate the stress of looking for Seattle auto repair and services too by using this great service. All you need to do is post your need for auto repairs to get the ball rolling. It’s that easy!
