No one likes having to visit their local mechanic, but there’s no escaping regular maintenance and car repair costs. Just be careful about who you go to when looking for less expensive alternatives. Recently, I was browsing through my Facebook newsfeed and saw a post of a mechanic. It was his day off and he could fix your car.
If you’re hiring someone to come out to your house, you’ve got to make sure they’re properly licensed. It’s easy to do.
Nevada’s DMV has a list of licensed body shops, auto dealers, and more. If you think you’ve found a legitimate mobile mechanic, AAA says, get their address and Google them. Make sure they have a truck full of professional tools, not just some wrenches and screwdrivers. Ask if they take credit cards and never pay cash in advance. The bottom line is there is no recourse if you hire someone who isn’t properly licensed, but you have a problem with a legitimate mechanic. If you do, you can always file your complaint with the DMV there. Compliance enforcement division investigators can be easily reached to this phone number.
