The talented team of ASE certified technicians is reason enough for our customers to remain loyal to Starko Auto Services for years to come. However, what about potential customers who do not know how to shop around for auto repair shops.
We offer eight time tested tips that ensure you enjoy the finest European auto repair service.
Word of mouth advertising still represents a powerful marketing tool for auto shops. Review online reviews, but more important, ask for recommendations from friends, family members, and professional colleagues. According to USA.gov, one of the most efficient ways to discover a reputable auto shop is by networking with the people you trust.
Better Business Bureau
The Better Business Bureau (BB) compiles information about businesses and then the consumer advocacy agency issues accreditations to businesses that provide superior products and services. Starko Auto Services has a spotless complaints record with the BBB and we recommend that consumers check BBB ratings at the beginning of their searches for reputable auto shops.
Auto repair certifications separate the best auto shops from auto repair businesses that let customers down. Recognized by Chambers of Commerce throughout the San Fernando Valley, Starko Auto Services has earned the highly coveted seal from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. Because of our commitment to excellence, we attract lifelong customers from as far away as Burbank and Thousand Oaks, California.
When you shop for groceries, you compare prices to determine which products offer the highest value. Apply the same price shopping principle in your search for the best European auto repair business. As the owner of a Volkswagen or Mercedes-Benz, you should understand that servicing European manufactured cars can cost more than the servicing of domestically manufactured vehicles. Still, you can find affordable European auto repair services, such as the services offered by Starko Auto Services.
Appearances are Not Deceiving
The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence suggests consumers should spend a couple of minutes observing how an auto repair shop looks. By starting with the parking lot, you can determine whether the business maintains a clean facility. The parking lot also demonstrates whether the vehicles serviced at the auto repair shop reflect the value and performance of your European model that requires repairs. Does the auto shop post a comprehensive list of labor costs and service fees in a well-traveled section of the business?
Find a European Auto Repair Shop
Our team of ASE certified technicians have acquired years of experience servicing European vehicle models such as Audi, BMW, and Porsche. You cannot afford to place the auto repair needs of your European car in the hands of inexperienced technicians. According to Consumer Reports, auto shops that specialize in servicing specific vehicle models offer the most comprehensive technician training and operate the latest diagnostic and repair equipment.
Dealer Authorized Auto Shops
Starko Auto Services receives accreditation from all of the automakers that manufacture the vehicles we maintain and repair. We offer original equipment manufacturer parts to ensure compatibility. Although labor costs are higher at dealer sanctioned auto shops, the quality of work more than makes up for the additional costs. Moreover, you never want to skimp on auto part quality for a European manufactured car.
Cyberspace is Your Friend
The Internet does much more than present the information of an auto repair shop website. By reviewing Yelp and Angie’s List reviews, you gain insight into the quality of service delivered by German auto repair specialists. We say German because that is how Starko Auto Services has established a strong presence in the auto repair industry operating in San Fernando Valley and beyond.
