How to Choose an Auto Repair Shop

We’ve all been there. We wake up every morning, turn the key on our car or truck of choice and get started on our day. Driving to work, driving the kids to school, the daily hustle and bustle of life, moving at such a quick pace, simple things like routine maintenance on our vehicles gets put off. Next week. Next month. Then before you know it, car trouble. We never schedule it. No one plans for a broken down car.

Maybe its nothing to serious. Maybe its just a brake squealing as you pull up to the Toms River Toll Booth. Or maybe your driving on the back roads through Whiting, and passing that slow tourist was the last time your oil pump could handle 4000 RPMs. Maybe the summer heat has you stranded on the side of the road outside of Manchester. Whether its a flat tire on the side of a Toms River road, a clanging under the hood in Whiting, or liquids spewing over the Garden State Parkway outside of Manchester you are going to need a mechanic you can trust.
