One of the things that completely throws my life out of kilter is when my automobile needs repair. Everything stops -- I have to make the phone call, set up the appointment around work time, hope there won't be a long line for repair, get the estimate, make arrangements to be dropped off and picked up, ad nauseum... you know the drill.
|Danny Sato, owner of Maui Mobile Mechanics
S-o-o, you can imagine my utter delight when I noticed that Maui Mobile Mechanics (owner Danny Sato answers the phone with "M3") is my neighbor!
Danny is a no-nonsense kind of guy! Granted, we do live next door, but on the same day I called, the phone call, the test drive, estimate, and brake repair took under two hours (I timed it), -- WOW!
Danny's a master ASE technician and has been in the auto repair business for over 20 years.
The business is four years old. There are three vehicles, with three professional mechanics including Danny, "to come to you". Danny says the business is growing."I worked for Firestone and Midas, and thought to myself, I can do this on my own."
|Aren't these great specials?
What does Danny like about owning a mobile auto repair business?
"I like meeting all kinds of people. And people like the fact that they're able to watch the repair being done."
Yes, haven't we all wondered what really happens in those repair shops? Next to the stress-free convenience of not having to leave your home to have your vehicle worked on, transparency is definitely M3's best feature, in my opinion.
|You can call 24/7. An emergency call is $125.
Needless to say, I'll be calling Mobile Maui Mechanics (280-0260) for all my auto repairs. Or instead of calling, I could just walk over there if I happen to see Danny in the yard ... Lucky me! :D
