Our miscellaneous auto services include:
Most Extended Warranties Accepted
An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At Fred’s Auto Center, LLC in West Haven, CT 06516, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.
After-Hours Drop Off
Sometimes auto repair needs arise long after most auto repair shops have closed (most auto repair shops close at 6 pm). With after-hours drop off services, you leave your car at the mechanics shop for repair even if the shop has closed. You simply fill out an envelope, put in your keys, and drop it in a drop box. The auto shop will only contact you when your car is ready or when they need additional information. At Fred’s Auto Center, LLC, we value your convenience and that is why we offer after-hours drop off services. Even if we have closed, you just drop-off your vehicle at our shop and our mechanics will work on it and contact you when it is ready.
Free Local Pickup and Delivery with Repairs By Appointment
In certain circumstances, auto shops offer pickup and delivery services. This is whereby the auto shop picks up the vehicle at your work place or home, works on it, and delivers it after it is fully repaired and serviced. This saves you time and money. The p/u and delivery service can be either free or paid for. At Fred’s Auto Center, LLC, we offer free local pickup and delivery whereby we routinely pick up your car from your home or workplace. We want to make the task of having that car repaired/serviced as stress free as possible. This service is subject to appointment.
Free Local Shuttle Service with Repairs By Appointment
When you drop your car at our garage for repair and servicing, you don’t always have the time to wait until we’ve finished servicing your car. To get your busy life going on, we offer free local shuttle services. At Fred’s Auto Center, LLC in West Haven, CT 06516, we offer free local shuttle services to our customers. This service allows you to conveniently go back to your day’s routine as we work on your vehicle – you don’t have to wait at the shop. This service is by appointment.
Mobile Repair Service
Mobile repair is a type of auto repair service whereby the repair mechanic comes to you. At Fred’s Auto Center, LLC in West Haven, CT 06516, we understand that most people do not have the time to wait in repair shops and they would rather have their vehicles repaired from their home, workplace, or roadside (if it has broken down on the roadside). We offer mobile repair service. Call us today at 203-934-7251 and tell us where you want your vehicle serviced.
Trailer Hitches, Wiring and Tires
