I think it’s safe to say we’re all a little more money-conscious today than we were a decade ago. And while spending more carefully is often for the better, this philosophy can backfire if you regularly choose an auto repair shop based on the lowest quoted price.
Going for the “cheapest” auto repair generally gives you lower quality parts, lesser skilled technicians, a minimal warranty and questionable customer service. It’s hard to calculate any savings if you’re paying for brakes you don’t need or buying new tires twice as often because the “cheap” tires wore out quickly.
At Auto Lab, we don’t believe in being the “cheapest.” We know it’s a short race to the bottom when you only focus on price. Instead, we focus on one thing: value. In our 20 years in Libertyville, we’ve survived economic booms and busts. Throughout it all, we’ve worked hard to be the shop that gives you and your family the best value for your auto repair dollar. That’s why we offer a 3-year/36,000 mile warranty on any work you have done.
It’s also why we employ ASE-Certified Master Technicians who can complete repairs properly and promptly—and who can forewarn of upcoming repairs that you should start saving for. (This alone saves you money vs. getting hit with an unexpected breakdown.)
And because time is money, we offer you free loaner cars and a free shuttle service, whether you’re in Libertyville, Mundelein or one of our other surrounding areas that is within 10 miles. We’ll even provide a free car wash for you when your repair invoice is $100 or more.
All of this is designed to save you time and money and to give you peace of mind that your car will get you safely and reliably to school, the Libertyville train station, downtown Chicago and anywhere else you and your family need to go. And we’ve often been told that that peace of mind is priceless.
P.S. If you have any questions for me about this philosophy, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I’m happy to go into more details with you.
