Default Starter and Alternator Repairs - Best Auto Electrical Works (Mumbai)

Services offered:
  • Servicing and repairing of altrernator and starters of any make

What I like:
  • Very staright-forward and honest people to deal with
  • Had given my Petra for alternator repairs and there was noise from the brake assembly which I noticed after taking the car back. The RHS tyre had to be removed to gain access to remove the alternator. The owner along with his mechanic came all the way to Juhu to rectify and I was not even requested once to get the car to their workshop.
What I don't like:
  • Not open on Sundays
  • Traffic is a big issue if you reach after 10 AM
Pricing:
Not sure about the pricing as I had not asked for a quote from any other workshop. But comparing the price of a new alternator for a Fiat Petra I found the prices to be resaonable.

Speciality / USP:
Can repair starter and alternator of any make


What I have bought from him:
Got the alternator of my Fiat Petra repaired.

As the 'discoverer' of BEST auto electric when he saved me 10k by repairing my palio alternator for 2.8k instead of a new one for 13, I also vouch for Shekhar.

Has the necessary brains, machinery and tools in a neat small workshop. Has solved tricky problems of other palio owners.

Is honest and straight and rates are extremely reasonable.

He has a garage/space alliance with a garage off Peddar road where he often gets the work done since parking is at a premium in the Kennedy Bridge area.

Overall highly recommended

+1 to that. I got the altrenator for my GTX repaired at Best Auto almost 18 months ago and no issues till date. He is indeed a Genuine One.

And how can I forget "Genesis" who referred me to this place. Thanks Mate!

Looks like a great recommendation, thanks for sharing guys! Does he do other electrical work too? I'd give anything to find the right guy for misc work (headlamp upgrades, rewiring the horn etc.)

This aged guy is a genious,also he makes trips to Germany,Hongkong,Bangkok,USA time to time to keep himself updated.
He has two sons one is with him at Mahim and does servicing of Car AC.

I think he does those things (not used him for such stuff personally). Saw him fix the horn of a Tavera while I was waiting, and given the fact that he also is an exide dealer, I would think he is multifaceted. Give him a call
