Finding a local mechanic after you move might feel like a full time job in addition to unpacking. No worries we have ideas. Most neighborhoods and communities need a mechanic at some time, even if just to blow up your bike tire. To narrow down your search for someone who can take a peek at your 2 door, 4 door, family truck, or traveling office, head to your local coffee shop. Not kidding! Get to know shop folks. What we mean is look around, figure out who the regulars are and ask them who their mechanic is. This networking adventure could be more useful than you think. Not only can you try out a few mechanics, but you will probably learn about other local hot spots. Everyone needs to know the best grocery store, gas station, bank, hair salon or barber, local restaurant and watering hole. You will be glad you took your time to search out the locals in your new community before you are in desperate need of a service, such as a mechanic. Once you are all settled in and can find your way around a little bit, explore and go get yourself a cup of coffee and say hi to the regulars for us.
