I took my car once to Tire Kingdom and saw that everyone that was working was looking confused. I never took my car back. Also having been a mechanic at one time I can tell when a company hires dummies to work. If you are a "trained" mechanic, things like what you see in the video below do not happen. Cars or trucks just don't fall off a lift unless a untrained mechanic is allowed to work in the shop doing such things. There are safety checks. And only certain places you put the lift arms under a vehicle. Tire Kingdom was lucky no one was hurt.

Good point. Relying on mechanics they have the proper training can be by far the best thing even if it costs more in the short run.
