MESA AUTO REPAIR SHOP DISCUSSES 5 WAYS TO GUARANTEE A FAIR DEAL

Mesa auto repair shops – present company included – understand much more than what makes your automobile tick. Part of offering our customers the East Valley’s greatest automotive service value for their money entails knowing, top to bottom, what separates a Mesa auto repair shop with clear integrity from those who will look for any advantage to ratchet up the tab on unsuspecting drivers. Have no doubt that Desert Heat Auto’s management and crew only provide our valued customers with the most attentive, thorough work on every vehicle entering our bays. We appreciate the implied trust when everyday drivers who perhaps aren’t deeply versed in automotive technology entrust their vehicles to our hands. Unfortunately, we can’t claim to speak for every Mesa auto repair shop that makes its services available to Phoenix’s motorists in need.  That’s why we enthusiastically support shopping around. However, should you wind up at a shop other than Desert Heat Auto, we’d like to offer a few suggestions to ensure you receive the highest-quality service your money can buy.

Every customer that comes through our Mesa auto repair shop’s doors means one imperative thing to us above all other definitions of identity and character: a valued East Valley driver deserving of automotive servicing that ensures continued vehicle reliability and safety that keeps day-to-day lives humming right on schedule. Nothing more, nothing less. That’s why the unique customer-consciousness of this “ladies-only” Paris auto body shop evokes a complex conflict of mutual entrepreneurial respect and a certain disappointed wishful thinking that the inspirational catalyst for its identity was no longer a reality of the auto-repair industry. BY WOMEN, FOR WOMEN Recently opening in the Parisian suburb of Saint-Ouen-l’Aumône, Only Girl isn’tso much exclusionary toward male clientele as designed to offer women a more comfortable atmosphere and experience in auto body repair. Beyond its staff composed entirely of highly trained female collision-repair specialists, Only Girl customers can await their vehicles in the relaxed, lady-friendly luxury of such primping and pampering services as manicures, pedicures, soothing massages and eyebrow-waxing. It’s funny the way that perception of an idea can shift with changes in the knowledge of who conceived it in the first place.
