Shopping for the best price can be risky. When it comes to auto parts there are many different levels of quality and unless you specify what brand and quality you want installed, it is unlikely you will get an apples to apples price comparison. At Haney Automotive we install only quality auto parts and our pricing reflects this.
We have found that it is cheaper in the long run to put in quality parts that have superior performance and last longer.
Also we have found that what you "think you may need for repairs" vs. "what is actually needed" can be vastly different. This is why "in our opinion" it is beneficial to build a relationship with an Auto Repair shop that you can trust and stick with them. The shop will get to know you and your vehicle, this can mean faster diagnosis, therefore less cost.
If you wait until you are having problems with their vehicle and then phone around for the lowest price #1 you are losing valuable time, #2 you risk letting the problem get worse #3 you will be creating a unfair playing field for the shops you are calling and in turn selling yourself short. By building a relationship with a shop that you trust you can take your vehicle in at the first sign of trouble, this can save you money and disappointment.
To help avoid un-timely breakdowns with your vehicle do timely maintenance and check over's. This is the best way to save you money in the long run and help avoid surprises and frustration.
At Haney Automotive our Bronze and Silver Oil Change Maintenance packages include an in-depth 69 point check over. A hard copy of this check is yours to keep, it will give you a good idea of what is coming down the pipe, allowing for planning and budgeting.
Results of a Good Relationship
1.Quicker response time. Saving you time.
2.Comfort and Familiarity
We enjoy talking to you about your vehicle, your family and what's happening in the community and we are always willing to answer any question you have concerning your vehicle.
Although it may seem like a good idea to look for the lowest price don't forget that you get what you pay for. When it comes to auto repair and maintenance the overall value and experience should be considered. In the long run building a trusting relationship is far more beneficial.
