Rent a lift
Out here in Phoenix, bad times have birthed car self-repair shops.
You heard me—you can tell YOURSELF, “Oh, man, I don’t know…sounds bad.”
Of course, if you are so inclined, you may lack say, a lift or other tools to do it yourself. So this is for you!
Basically, U Fix IT is a large garage with tools and advice. Use of the lift is $20 an hour. Other pricing is also by the hour and depends on which tools you use.
The guy got the idea by watching a young man working under a car on an axle and knew the car could fall on him. Not good.
You have to watch a safety video before starting. They also dispose of fluids for you. In addition, they know who has all the rare parts in town.
There could be a business in this for you. The garage under discussion sometimes hosts the police dept in tearing down cars to teach cops to find drugs. People come to learn to change their oil.
It’s like a community center with grease.
