Do Your Best To Get To Know Your Vehicle
Whether you have just gotten a brand new vehicle or you've had the same car for many years, it's your responsibility as the owner of the vehicle to know what is normal. Take your car out for a drive and pay attention to how it feels to drive it. Take note of how it sounds when you accelerate and slow down. Look at all the buttons and displays. This will help you notice any abnormalities in the future. As mechanics, we don't expect you to know the name for every little piece of your car, but you should be familiar with how your vehicle works so we can get a good understanding on what your vehicle needs.

Don't Panic If You Notice Something Strange
Now, if you happen to notice any abnormalities such as strange smells or noises, or maybe a light pops up on your dashboard. Don't panic. Most people jump to worst case scenarios and get themselves all worked up about the time and cost of the repair. However, there is a chance that it is a simple fix and panicking about it will cause you unnecessary stress. As soon as you notice that something is off, just book an appointment with one of our mobile mechanics. All you need to do is log onto our website or app and request an appointment for a specific date and time. We will come to your preferred location and take a look at your vehicle to figure out the best course of action for you and your vehicle. Our mechanics will be able to talk you through the solution so you won't have to experience any added stress.

Don't Wait Too Long To Get Seemingly Minor Repairs
Although you've probably heard this many times before, it's true! Every part of your vehicle is important, so it's crucial to make sure that everything is working properly. If you aren't a retired mechanic, it can be hard to tell which car issues are urgent and which are less problematic, so you should always get your car checked out as soon as possible. With some car issues, waiting too long to get a repair could cause other costly damages to occur. Luckily for you, Wrench is the perfect solution for anyone that doesn't like taking their car to the shop. We will bring the shop to any location you find convenient so you can spend your time and energy on the things that matter most to you!

Do Ask Your Mechanic Questions
Whether you've scored an appointment with one of our friendly mobile mechanics or you are at a more traditional shop, it is important that you ask your mechanic questions. You might want to know how the issue occurred. Was is inevitable over time? Was it a driving habit? Then you should figure out how you can avoid having the same problem again. Some issue, like needing a battery change, are unavoidable due to aging of your vehicle, but other issues can be prevented! We want to keep you safe while you are on the road, so we will give you top tier information about how to keep your car in good shape. After you've gotten all of that information, feel free to ask any other questions you have. Our mobile mechanics at Wrench are happy to provide clear and concise answers so you can understand what is wrong and how we plan to fix it.

Don't Skip Your Maintenance Appointments
Now you might not think this is very important, but getting your car checked out by a skilled professional is necessary to keeping your car in good shape. If you skip a routine oil change appointment, it could cause even more issues down the line. These issues could cost lots of time and money. You could be putting your passengers and yourself in harms way. So be sure to stay on top of your routine services! Get your oil change, add air in your tires or get them changed altogether, have your air filter and brake pads replaced, and more! If you don't know where to start, a quick google search or a conversation with one of our dedicated mobile mechanics will do the trick!
