I’m In a Hurry, How Long Will It Take to Repair My Car?

One of the most difficult things about leaving your car at the auto repair shop to have it fixed is waiting for it to be finished. We know it is inconvenient when you don’t have access to your car. Because of that we always do everything that we can to have your baby returned to you as quickly as possible—complete with top-notch car repairs and service. But a question that we always get is, “How long will it take to repair my car?” And the simple answer is that it may depend, and it may depend on you.

Plan Ahead to Make Sure Your Car Repair is Done Quick

An import repair shop serves many customers with different types of cars that have different service and repair needs. Unfortunately, it is impossible for any car repair garage to have every part on hand for every type of repair, especially if your car is an antique or classic car. If you want your car serviced and returned to you quickly, schedule in advance if you can. We know that not everything can be scheduled beforehand and that emergencies happen, but call ahead when you can because it usually streamlines the process. If we know your car is coming, we can get your parts in advance for your auto repair or service to make your auto repair go as quickly as possible.

In addition, keep in mind that as much as we would like to drop everything and devote all of our time to your car, we will have other people’s car repair or maintenance needs to tend to while your car is in our auto repair shop. Some days we may not be able to get to your car right away, and a big part of how long your car will be at our garage is how busy we are when we get it.

Complicated Problems Require More Complicated Solutions

More complicated repairs take more time, and that’s a fact. This will have a huge effect on how long your car repair will take. Changing the oil on a car is a fairly simple procedure that can usually be completed in less than an hour of hands-on time with the right equipment. Changing or rotating tires is another relatively straightforward procedure that shouldn’t take very long. A new alternator, timing belt or water pump will take more hands-on time, with repairs potentially taking hours instead of minutes to complete. Getting your transmission rebuilt, however, is another matter entirely. This is a complicated process which will require several days to be completed. And with any service or repair—no matter how simple—there is always a chance of unexpected complications which can lengthen the repair process. Expect that the more complicated your repair needs, the longer it will take for your car to be repaired at our car repair garage.
