There are some things Yakima motorists should know about Yakima car service and repair. First and foremost, AutoMetrics cares about you and your family’s safety. And we really appreciate your business. AutoMetrics in Yakima wants to build a trusting relationship that becomes the foundation for a mutually beneficial experience for years to come. Building on that foundation, there are some things that would help you understand the auto service and repair business better. First, it can be really hard to fix cars. The days of shade tree mechanics are long gone. The majority of automotive systems are computerized. It takes a lot of training and very expensive equipment to diagnose and repair modern vehicles. The thoughtful techs that work for AutoMetrics need extensive computer training – not just how to run the diagnostic systems, but also searching for the right parts, networking with other service professionals to help them with a difficult problem and pulling together a job order that makes sure that each step of the process is addressed. The threshold for getting started as a technician gets higher all the time in WA and there is a huge commitment to on-going training every year. This training takes time and money. It contributes to business overhead. Average Yakima or Union gap motorists may not realize the business and environmental regulations AutoMetrics must comply with. Of course that costs money too. Like any WA business, overhead is a big factor. When you go into your favorite Yakima restaurant you don’t value the meal by what the food would cost at the grocery store. The restaurant has rent, wages, insurance (click here for details on how our specific insurance differs from the average person’s), taxes, utilities, professional fees, equipment, supplies – you get the picture. The restaurant has to charge enough to not only pay for the ingredients, but for all these other things as well while making enough profit to remain in business. If you value the meal and are satisfied with your dining experience, you’ll come back and tell your friends. It’s the same for AutoMetrics, according to the specialists at the Chandler area automotive repair center. The value of its service is not the cost of the parts they replace, but in your satisfaction with the results. If they deliver a good product at a fair price, Yakima customers are happy to see them succeed as a WA automotive business.
