Cold weather can wreak havoc on your garage, especially in Utah where the temperatures can reach extreme lows. Metals can contract, synthetics can crack, and precipitation can freeze onto parts. All of these conditions can lead to significant problems with how your garage functions. This makes the winter time one of the busiest for garage services and repairs.
Recently, The Today Show did an investigative report in which three out of four repair services they tried overcharged customers for repairs that weren’t necessary. A link to the story can be found here.
This is a scary finding and is an indication that those in need of service need to be careful when choosing the right team for repairs. In the video, they have industry experts give advice on choosing the right repair team which included things like:
- Checking to see if the repairmen have signage on their vehicle
- Getting recommendations from friends and family who have had similar repairs done
- Checking with local consumer affairs offices to make sure the company you hire is licensed
In fact, these are good recommendations when you are seeking services in any industry. In this day and age, there are many service organizations that look like a single company, but are more like hubs for independent contractors. While there are undoubtedly great servicemen and women working for these hubs, the situation is misleading. That is, these hub agencies are rarely involved in training the people they represent or making sure the contractors are actually licensed.
