The Wrench-It Center’s welcoming staff fully services all auto types in a spacious, clean garage and invites casual car tinkerers to repair their vehicles in rented bays on their own or with assistance from the center’s Rent-A-Mechanic program. During tire winterization service, summer’s slick treads bow out in favor of new treads ready to battle icy thoroughfares, navigate frosty highway hazards, and avoid construction workers erecting “Snowman Crossing” signs. Pull cars onto the lift, fire up the tire machine, and undertake some do-it-yourself auto mending with a self-service tire swap or leave the mysteries of mechanics to the professionals with full-service changes. Customers can bring last year’s treads back into service or bag new winter wheels such as the Nitto NT-SN2 ($102.88 each), the Bridgestone Blizzak, and the Michelin X-Ice. The Wrench-It Center recommends vehicle owners call ahead to schedule service appointments and play dates with the hatchback the next bay over.
The Wrench-it Center
Inspired to help car owners save money in the wake of an economic downturn, The Wrench-it Center's founder, Zachary Anderegg, opened the heated bays of a full-service, do-it-yourself garage lauded by the Deseret News as "Salt Lake Valley's most innovative—and hands-on—automotive repair business." Amateur mechanics can access both high-rise and low-rise lifts as well as a 200-piece toolbox, and they can also plug into the garage's Alldata automotive repair database so they don't have to ask their car to honk three times when it stops hurting. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, when visitors hit a snag, this computer system "shows drawings of just about every part and how they fit together for all makes and models." When the garage doesn't have the part for a required repair, free parts delivery can summon rare factory components and more aerodynamic bumper stickers. Owners can enlist the shop's mechanics to coach them through the repair process, and at any point they can hand the job off and enjoy the full-service treatment.
