About Us

You know that feeling you get when you take your car to the dealership for repair or drive your car into your local automotive shop for your 3,000-mile oil change? The lingering dread of the “up-sale” pitch the customer service rep is going to present you with - before they hand you back your keys? A large majority of us have either given into the pressure of their recommendations because we have been convinced we absolutely need them or our vehicle will not make it back home to our driveway.

Hello, my name is Kimberly De Jong, Manager and owner of My Mechanic. My business partner, Adele Allen, and I have been placed in that awkward situation more times than we care to count. Was it because we are women and we feel vulnerable and mechanic inept? After all, they are the experts, right? Most women tend to feel that way, but be assured; men are approached with up sales just as often as women. It’s simple really….. You take your vehicle in for a discount (perhaps FREE) oil change, the pressure to up-sell to the customer is a must to make up the loss. They don’t get their oil & filters for free so neither will you!

We decided enough is enough. Why should hard working, honest people have to continue to feel intimidated just to have their oil changed or a taillight replaced? Why can’t you just take you car to the dealership you purchased it from and not have worry about being sold items you don’t necessarily need nor can you afford? Haven’t you rewarded the dealership enough by purchasing a car from them?

So now here we are. Two women who have set out to revolutionize the way people feel about automotive services. We don’t have the luxury of giving away free service. What we can offer you is peace of mind - knowing you have a friend in the neighborhood that is YOUR mechanic. You will receive the service you need, performed by experienced, certified technicians and at reasonable price. Sure we might suggest a few recommendations ourselves. The difference is we will prioritize what is necessary and/or recommended for you vehicle today and for down the road. That’s how confident we are that you’ll be back!

We have gotten to know so many of you in the neighborhood already and it’s been a pleasure to service your vehicles. For those of you we have not met, please keep us in mind for any future automobile needs that should arise.
