Ford Certified Service vs Independent Shop

When you compare the two, it’s easy to see why Ford certified service is always the better choice over service from an independent shop.

Ford Certified Service

Comparing Independent Mechanics to Hollingsworth Richards Ford

We’re passionate about cars at our service center, and we want yours to be in the best shape possible. While we support independent mechanics in their work to help others’ cars stay in good shape, we know that we’re the best place you can go to take care of your Ford. Our service center provides the best service around so that you can keep your car in great shape, and we’ll make sure your Ford lasts as long as it can.

Our Certified Technicians Are Experts

An independent mechanic can know a lot about cars, but our technicians are Ford-certified. This means that they’ve gone through the training necessary to know Ford vehicles inside and out, and they’re ready and waiting to give you the service you need. Our certified technicians have Ford’s stamp of approval and even their trust to perform warranty-covered service on their behalf. This means that you can trust them to service your Ford the right way, and you can have peace of mind about the people taking care of your vehicle.

We Take Care of You at Our Service Center

At our state-of-the-art facility, we do everything we can for you. We have an express service department ready to take care of your immediate service needs, and our comfortable waiting area is prepared for you to relax in. We have free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs you can enjoy while you wait, as well as a complimentary beverage and coffee bar. We even have business workstations if you need to get something done while waiting.

We Have the Right Parts for the Job

Our service center carries an entire stock of OEM parts for your replacements. This means we have genuine Ford parts at the ready to go into your car as soon as we identify a part that needs replacing. While independent mechanics can buy those parts from us and use them, we have them ready to go, and our certified technicians know exactly how to install them in your car. OEM parts are the best parts you can have for your vehicle, and we provide them for you.

Come to Hollingsworth Richards Ford for Your Certified Technicians

However, we also know that we’ve set up a place where you can get all of your services in one place, where you can get high-quality service, and where you can get the right parts you need for your replacements.
