AutoMD: Negotiating Repair Costs

AutoMD Estimates Auto Repair Costs and Negotiates with Repair Shops to Make Servicing Your Car Less Stressful

Finding a good auto shop that won’t overcharge you may
seem like a Herculean task, especially if you don’t know a lot about car
repairs. AutoMD helps you become a more informed car owner and gets car
repair quotes for you.

The site actually is an incredible source of auto information, with
tools for diagnosing car troubles, locating a repair shop, and DIY
repair guides, but two of the most helpful for your bottom line are the
repair cost estimator and the auro repair negotiator.

The repair cost calculator uses real-time shop repair estimates from
over 400,000 accredited repair shops in the U. Enter in your vehicle and
zip code, and select your prepair type to get the ballpark figure.

When it’s time to get service, you can use AutoMD Negotiator to get
quotes emailed from local shops and schedule the service through AutoMD.
(As with other service directories, like ServiceMagic for the home improvement industry, the available shops may be limited to the ones that opt-in to AutoMD’s business listing.)

It’s wise to know when to dispute your auto repair bill
and AutoMD might help avoid car repair surprises by arming you with
more education and information about servicing your vehicle.
