How Do I Fit Car Repair Into My Busy Life?

Finding the time to get your car fixed can be tough! With work, family, and personal time, it seems that some important things can get pushed to the back burner too often. The good news is that there are some ways that you can fit a car repair into your busy life, even if you feel too pressed for time.

Make a Phone Call

Sometimes people just may not realize how little time a repair could take or the current wait time. While we can’t give your car a complete diagnosis over the phone, we may be able to give you a small idea of the time it might take to get it fixed. Just knowing an approximate timeline will help with the stress of trying to fit it in somewhere.


To prevent a larger problem, it is important to prioritize your time and get the repair done. Take an honest look at your schedule to see what you can replace with a car repair. Because a car repair is an important step in automobile maintenance, it should become a priority in your schedule.

Take a Day Off

Of course, you likely won’t take a day off of work to have your car repaired, but you may be able to take a day off from your car. Leaving your vehicle at the shop in the morning and then sharing or borrowing a friend’s or family member’s car might be a solution. You don’t have to sit in the shop to wait for it to be taken care of, especially if it is an extensive repair. For your convenience, we offer a free courtesy shuttle to take you to your home or office and back, while your services are performed.
