How to Find A Mechanic You Can Trust

We all know that having your vehicle break down or develop a fault is one of the most annoying things that can happen in life. It always seems to happen at a busy time and it always seems to mess up lots of significant plans!

The obvious thing to do is head to a mechanic for a quick and effective fix, but you can only do that if you know that you are choosing someone who has the right kind of experience and reputation.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of so called experts out there who are only interested in taking your money, Here at Hervey Bay Brake and Exhause we can guarantee a thorough and professional service from top to bottom.

Here are some tips for how to find a mechanic in Hervey Bay that you can trust.


  • One of the best ways to find a mechanic that you can truly trust is by asking for recommendations from friends and family. The only people who really know what a service is like are those who have already experienced it, so send a message out asking for mechanics that have been good, fair and reasonably priced and you will hopefully receive some great suggestions in return.


  • It is always worth checking what kinds of licences and qualifications a mechanic has before opting to choose them. If a mechanic has all of the relevant training, they won’t mind sharing their CV with you.  If it’s a large garage with lots of mechanics, check whether your job would be undertaken by a fully qualified or trainee mechanic.


  • Spend some time reading one or two of those review aggregator sites online. All you will need to do is type in the name of a mechanic firm and you will be greeted with possible hundreds of reviews from customers stretching back over the years. This broad spectrum of opinion will give you a good idea as to the quality of the service. At Hervey Bay Brake & Exhaust, our 4.9 Google My Business rating is something all mechanics should strive for.
