Extremely fast service. I was on the side of the road stranded and they came almost instantly. Well I was going to take my car to a garage that I saw online; well the tow driver who is actually the owner too convinced me to bring it to him. He said if I wasn't satisfied with the quote he would charge no cost at all and tow it to the other garage for free! Well with a deal like that who wouldn't say yes. So he brings me to the garage and I arranged a pick up from my wife. We get home and settle in and about 7:30ish he gives me a call telling me the problem. He said he could have it resolved and ready to be picked up around 9 at night. I was so thankful for him making that a priority because I had to travel to Syracuse the very next day. With there being only one vehicle because mine was down it was going to make for a very stressful morning but he saved the day!!! The price was so reasonable that I couldn't help but write this! It has been 2 weeks and no issues! I know who my mechanic will be from now on! Thank you HOWE DOES IT AUTOMOTIVE

Excellent people to deal with. I got a great deal on a Dodge Caravan from them. I highly recommend them. Honest folks selling repairable salvage vehicles. They will help you secure shipping of your vehicle to you. Check their auction site on eBay.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
