  • Hourly-Advice

    A 30-minute call


    Whether it’s time to buy a new (or new-to-you) car, or you’re gearing up for a big road trip and want to make sure your vehicle is cross-country ready, if you find yourself in need of automotive advice from a neutral source — who values saving money and helping you protect your investment — consider booking a phone call with Mechanic Shop Femme.

    During our call, which can be booked in 30-minute increments, I can help you sort through car and financing options, calm your fears about purchasing a lemon, and go through the basics of preventative maintenance specifically for your current or future vehicle.

    If you don’t think you need a full half hour for your concerns to be addressed, take a look at the Mechanic Shop Femme Tip Jar for emailed questions, or if you’re looking to build up more general knowledge, check out our list of virtual, sliding scale classes.


    Note: MSF is going on a short break starting August 21st. We'll be back to process your order after September 2nd.
