There are some things Gig Harbor motorists should know about Gig Harbor car service and repair. First and foremost, Mackert Automotive cares about you and your family's safety. And we really appreciate your business. Mackert Automotive in Gig Harbor wants to build a trusting relationship that becomes the foundation for a mutually beneficial experience for years to come.
Building on that foundation, there are some things that would help you understand the auto service and repair business better. First, it can be really hard to fix cars. The days of shade tree mechanics are long gone. The majority of automotive systems are computerized. It takes a lot of training and very expensive equipment to diagnose and repair modern vehicles. The friendly and courteous technicians that work for Mackert Automotive need extensive computer training - not just how to run the diagnostic systems, but also searching for the right parts, networking with other service specialists to help them with a difficult problem and pulling together a job order that makes sure that each step of the process is addressed.
The threshold for getting started as a technician gets higher all the time in Washington and there is a huge commitment to on-going training every year. This training takes time and money. It contributes to business overhead. Average Gig Harbor or Gig Harbor drivers may not realize the business and environmental regulations Mackert Automotive must comply with. Of course that costs money too. Like any Washington business, overhead is a big factor.
When you go into your favorite Gig Harbor restaurant you don't value the meal by what the food would cost at the grocery store. The restaurant has rent, wages, insurance, taxes, utilities, professional fees, equipment, supplies - you get the picture. The restaurant has to charge enough to not only pay for the ingredients, but for all these other things as well while making enough profit to remain in business. If you value the meal and are satisfied with your dining experience, you'll come back and tell your friends.
It's the same for Mackert Automotive. The value of its service is not the cost of the parts they replace, but in your satisfaction with the results. If they deliver a good product at a fair price, Gig Harbor customers are happy to see them succeed as a Washington automotive business.

At Mackert Automotive, we love to see our Gig Harbor customers whenever they come in, but we would much rather see them three or four times a year for routine maintenance than once a year on a tow truck. We want to work together with you to avoid breakdowns. Tell your Gig Harbor area friends and family to come in for their important scheduled maintenance too. That lowers our marketing costs and helps keep its labor rates down. That's good for everyone in Gig Harbor.
