Everyone needs an auto repair shop near me that you can trust & afford. What's the best way to go corporate (with large mouths that need to be fed) or family owned that could potentially be the much more cost effective way to go? Not only that but from a local community standpoint who should you give your money to, big nationwide corporate or the family owned businesses that have lived in the local community their entire lives?

Need an auto repair near me? Dealerships typically cost a lot more than most mom and pop, family owned & operated, auto repair shops near you. The dealers net worth usually will far exceed the smaller repair shops which means they could potentially spend more money on things that some places just may not be able to afford and they should be able to pay their mechanics more money with that way higher labor rate. You get what you pay for right?

Just because dealerships charge way more money doesn't always mean they have the best mechanics. Bills add up, big dealerships have lots of overhead which means they have to make the money back. Hence the reason that their labor rates are sometimes TWICE as much money then the local, family owned, auto repair shops near you. Sometimes you have no choice but to go to the dealership, sometimes the dealer is the best route to go but sometimes not.

Take shops like Last Chance Auto Repair, they've been serving Plainfield, Naperville, Bolingbrook, Romeoville, Chicagoland plus beyond since 1978. The time that they've been in business is a lot longer than most shops, dealerships included. Just because the name of the vehicle manufacturer on the dealerships building is old doesn't mean that they are. They are proud of their family owned, operated, local heritage. It means a lot to them to make sure that their customers are truly happy. They don't have to pay advertising companies for reviews they truly earn them like they earn their customers business.
