Great lawn mower repair shops are getting harder to find. The older generations have retired and closed down their independent shops and younger people are not entering this line of work in great numbers.
So, how do you find a great lawn mower repair shop today?
Google is going to be your best friend when you do your searching. By using search terms such as “lawn mower repair Louisville KY”, this will get you some results that you can then narrow your criteria.
Review each of their websites and look for engine manufacturer certifications such as “Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician” or “Honda Engines Master Service Technician”. Follow that up by checking reviews on Google if they have a business listing on the right side of the page. Check the Better Business Bureau to see if there are any negative complaints and how those were handled by the business.
Don’t forget about Facebook! If the business has a page there, check their reviews as well.
Good shops are going to be busy as word gets around, people will flock to them. Expect to have some wait time such as 1-2 weeks as a norm. Calling and rushing them to get the work done will only have negative results for you, so let them do their work. It’s only grass, it can wait.
