One of the quickest ways to lower your repair expenses is to find a private or retired mechanic that won’t charge you high prices for repairs. I found my private mechanic on Craigslist by just posting an ad like the one below.
AD TITLE: Looking for a reliable mechanic
AD DESCRIPTION: I’m a car flipper and I’m looking for a reliable mechanic that wants part time work. You must have at least 10 years experience in the mechanical repairs. I can bring the cars to your garage. Please call or text XXX-XXXX.
A retired mechanic that used to work for a Toyota dealership replied to my ad and we hit it off. His rates have been a fraction of the normal price and all of his repairs have been excellent. He’s even helped me find great deals on used parts.
