When Your Automotive Mechanic Does Flat Rate Billing for Auto Repair and Truck Repair in Tampa 9/22/2009

You cannot avoid auto repair or truck repair no matter how well you maintain your vehicle. You will still need to bring it to your automotive service center for auto inspection, engine repair or car transmission system repair some time. Perhaps you may need to have some of your car parts replaced with AC Delco car parts, or perhaps you will just need auto oil change. Whatever automotive service you will need, your mechanic will either use hourly billing or flat rate billing. Both are acceptable billing methods in Tampa. But what difference does it make? Hourly billing is self-explanatory. Your automotive mechanic and automotive service center will bill you for the exact number of hours spent working on your vehicle. Flat rate billing, on the other hand, is based on how much time a flat rate book says a certain type of repair takes when done by the average professional mechanic. The flat rate book is an automotive industry standard that is used everywhere and not just in Tampa. Flat rate billing becomes a problem when some clients believe that they are being scammed when they are billed for a three-hour repair that the mechanic finishes in just two hours. The clients think they should, therefore, be billed only for those two hours. They should take into consideration, though, that the three hour period specified in the flat rate book is the industry standard in doing such type of repair. This means that the average professional skilled mechanic will take three hours to do the job properly. If the particular mechanic was able to finish it in two hours, and the repair was done well, it just means that this mechanic is exceptionally skilled and perhaps has had long experience in such types of repair. The time and study he has invested in preparing himself professionally up to that point accounts for the speed with which he did the task. It is only fair that he be duly rewarded for it.

Protect Yourself against the Dangers of Fake Car Parts 7/3/2009

When your vehicle needs auto repair or truck repair, whether for engine repair, truck and car transmission system repair or replacement, make sure you bring it to an automotive shop that is an authorized dealer of reputable car parts such as AC Delco. That way, you’re sure that any car parts put in your car are genuine. If you intend to buy a second hand vehicle, make sure you bring it to a reputable automotive shop, too, for auto inspection. It would be best if the automotive shop is also an authorized dealer of genuine car parts so that you know that they have integrity. Ask the mechanic to check all car parts for authenticity. If you decide to buy the vehicle, always take it to the same shop for maintenance and repair. Find yourself such an automotive shop in Tampa and you’ll be safe from fake car parts. Whenever you take your car in, even just for simple auto oil change, you’ll feel confident. Remember, it’s not worth it to scrimp on your car parts. In exchange for a few dollars in savings, this puts you, your family and other people on the road at great risk. Not only will you end up losing even more money, you may end up losing what is most valuable – your own life, the life of the people you love, and the life of other innocent people. more

Deciding on Auto Engine Repair or Replacement 6/26/2009

Automotive engine problems cannot be ignored. Don’t just give up on your vehicle, though. Find a reliable mechanic in Tampa and ask for a consultation. A truly professional mechanic will not lead you astray. He should do a thorough auto inspection of all vehicle components, including your car transmission system, and give you a full and honest report on whether you can still profit from auto repair – or truck repair, as the case may be – or if you need replacements for major car parts, even to the extent of engine replacement. To decide between automotive engine repair or replacement, you need to know about the pros and cons of your options. more
