Schatz & Krum Independent Auto Service
I bought my first BMW this year its older so I needed to find a good place to maintain it, I looked on yelp for BMW repair Sacramento and found this shop. They had good reviews, I called made and appointment and dropped my car off. I was so happy to get my car back so fas tand they solved my problem and fixed it for less then they quoted me. As long as I own a BMW I will bring my car to this shop. If you own a BMW don't try and be cheap and take it to someplace that doesn't specialize in BMW's I tried that before I brought my car here and it was a big mistake! Shatz and Krum fixed my car and was not that much more money. They know what they are doing here!

Shatz and krum is the one shop I trust to work on my bimmer here in sacramento. Staff are very professional and honest, good quality of service, they know what they're doing. I brought my m3 5 years ago with a bad head and got it back on the road, and now they've worked on my 325i with missed fire on one cylinder, coolant leak (came out i just had a loose plug). They fixed the ratteling noise under my car with just paying the price of the part and didn't charge me anything for labor (said it only took them 5 mins to bolt on), very straight forward, no BS

Thanks for bringing the joy back to driving my MINI!! I recently took my 2006 MINI cooper in to have a noise issue looked at. turns out the transmission had a bad bearing (covered under extended warranty) while they were in the process of doing the transmission I had them do all other recommended work while the transmission was out. new clutch, water pump, rear main seal...... Anyway since the transmission was covered the additional work was performed at an extremely reasonable price since most of it had to be removed anyway. Upon receiving my car back, I noticed a noise which I though was the original noise I had taken it in for. I took the car back and was in a disagreement with the mechanic who performed the work, I was 100% positive it was the same noise, he was certain it was not. I left the car overnight and was called the next day with the diagnosis, turns out I was wrong. It was another noise entirely but being the professionals they are, they made the repair and charged me for parts only. I am completely satisfied with their customer service and professionalism and would highly recommend this shop to anyone with a BMW, MINI, or Porsche.

Excellent shop for Porsche and BMW service! I have had both of my cars worked on here and they have always treated me with absolute professionalism and their prices are far better than the dealer.

Just serviced my 04 Mini Cooper S. I had a leaky oil pan, gasket head, cracked internal CV boots and a broken window regulator. The folks there are friendly and professional. They really know their BMWs, Porches and MINIs. Prices are fair and service is solid. I'm definitely making SCHATZ n KRUM my primary mechanic.

I have to say Schatz & Krum has always proven to be one of the most honest and reliable sources I've had for my BMW. They've taking care of numerous things over the last couple of years and compared to Roseville BMW and other auto shops at half the cost. I trust when they say it's needs to be taken care of, it really does.Thank you guys !!

Professional staff, fantastic service. I have taken my BMW in to several Sacramento-Area shops, and Schatz & Krum is hands-down the best. They are efficient, reasonably priced, and stand by their work. Couldn't be happier!

They have sent me a wrong part. The original sticker was covered with a sticker that matched the part that I bought. Eventually, the part didn't match and I have to buy the same part again. I am glad that these scammers closed their business.
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
