On the back side of my business card is a list of services I provide. Some of these services, such as small welding repairs, are ones that a person might not normally associate with a collision repair business. But today I want to talk about the last service on my list. It reads: Advice (this one is free).
Sometimes, folks have a problem and they don’t know where to go or what to do to take care of it. If it’s a vehicle problem and it’s not something I do, I can probably point you towards someone who can.
For instance, if you need upholstery work, I know a good shop that I feel comfortable sending you to. If you have a sunroof problem, that may be something we can help you with. Unless it’s a jaguar sunroof! Did one! Never again!
If you are trying to fix something yourself and are stuck on how to do it, I am more than willing to try to point you in the right direction. I think do it yourself is great, and I realize that most of us have limited funds and have to do things ourselves. YouTube can be helpful for these things, but not always. Same thing goes for looking for parts. Rather than order off the internet, I may know a local supplier with a competitive price. Buying locally means you don’t have to worry about freight, or freight damage. Also, if you buy locally and have a problem with the part, it’s much easier to take care of.
One more item: if you are thinking about buying a car that is going to need bodywork, talk to me about it before you buy it. It’s likely to cost more to fix than you think. So, If you need that free advice, stop in at 111 West 1st, here in Deer Park, or call me at 509-276-9505.
Thanks for reading.
