How long does it take to do a car alignment?

How long does a car alignment take? Being a working mom, I have a busy schedule. I need to book an appointment to get my car aligned, but I’m concerned about the time it will take.

Having your car aligned is an important, but often neglected, part of basic car maintenance. As long as there are no issues with your car, a two-wheel or four-wheel alignment will take roughly 30 minutes to one hour.
That said, there are a few different factors that can impact the time it takes to align your car:
  • Type of vehicle: The alignment process for a small compact car will be faster to fix than a big truck.
  • Condition of the car parts: Older vehicles will usually need more time than a new car. Often, there’s rust on older car parts, which will require more time to remove.
  • Experience and skill set of the mechanic: If a professional performing your car alignment has years of expertise, the alignment process is much faster than with a technician who does not.
Even if it takes a bit longer for alignment, you can still make good use of the time by downloading Jerry. Jerry is a car insurance comparison app that can save you time and money by finding you the best rates and coverage from over 50 top insurance providers.
