Berkeley Bob’s is one of the most honest and caring mechanics I have ever dealt with.
Here’s the back story…
My wife and I bought our 93′ Volvo 240 Classic wagon used about 2.5 years ago. A well loved and impressively maintained car from the original owner. It needed work as most used cars do, fortunately there were Berkeley Bob’s license plate frames already mounted on the car.
When the one of many repairs that I couldn’t handle needed to be dealt with we brought it to Sean at Berkeley Bob’s to take a look. The first thing he said when I called at 3p in the afternoon was bring it by first thing in the morning. I was already impressed by the quick service. When I drove up he looked at my 240 and said “Oh yeah, I have been working on this car for at least 15 years!” He opened the hood and claimed ” I did that and that and that but I didn’t do that! I use much higher quality parts”.
Of course that was the fix I did, I already felt like I was in good hands.
He generously gave me a ride to BART and before I knew it he called at 3 p that afternoon and the car was ready to go. I was blown away at how fast and well he serviced the car.
At first I was in sticker shock at the final bill but as I looked closer 3/4 of the cost came from the high quality parts that were used to make my beauty run and the remainder was labor. I felt like I was really getting my money’s worth and knew the quality was in the car.
Since then I have been back a dozen times fixing my car and striking things off the to do list. Each time knowing Sean and his team care about me and my car as much as I do and will continue to service the car hopefully even when the third owner takes her over. Hopefully not any time soon.
If you’ve got a Volvo, or any other type of car, you should only consider Berkeley Bob’s as your ‘go to’ mechanic.
