Our Process at Eastside Automotive Auto Repair Shop in Greer, SC

When a customer first calls or comes in, we ask for their information and how the vehicle is acting. We give the vehicle a complete evaluation, including a test drive.
We then diagnose the vehicle and send the customer the results of our digital vehicle inspection and diagnosis. We try to diagnose everything within the hour.
We wait until we have approval from the customer to start work.
When the work is completed, the customer can come to the shop and pay or pay by text, especially if they have to pick up the vehicle after hours.

How We Are Different

We like to get to know our customers in Greer, South Carolina and create a relationship with them, as we are customer-centric. We want our customers to feel comfortable when they walk into our shop. We diagnose the problem and don’t try to upsell. We will also warn a customer of upcoming repairs, for example, if the brake pads are starting to get low or we notice the tire tread is unevenly worn or worn nearly to the tread bars.

We also keep the shop clean for our safety and our customers’ safety. Finally, we let the customer know immediately if something goes wrong, such as the warehouse sending the wrong part or we find more trouble once we’re looking at the vehicle. We understand that our customers plan on having their vehicle when we say it will be done, so we let them know if there is going to be a delay and the reason for the delay so they can make other arrangements.
