There are literally millions of mechanics in Almaty. Here are some of the best places to get work done on your car if you need it done quick.
For cheap repairs, head to the bazaar. Altyn Orda bazaar on the western outskirts of Almaty has a huge number of mechanics and car repair services. The quality is a gamble, but this is a good place if you need a quick fix or don’t want to spend a lot of money. Barakholka, a big bazaar at the northern end of Almaty, is another place where you can get cheap car parts and servicing. Drive all the way to the end of the bazaar to find the mechanics.
Third place to look is Ryskulov Avenue and Rayimbek avenue. These streets in the heart of the city are packed with car salons and repair services. A good place to browse if you don’t want to drive far.
