Top 5 Reasons To Choose A Mobile Mechanic
If you own a car, whether it be new, old, or somewhere in between, you’re going to need a mechanic. Hopefully someone you trust, hopefully someone that’s available, someone who won’t gauge you on price, and one that is convenient.
Hey, I just described most of the mobile mechanics out there!
While I may be biased (I’m a mobile mechanic), there’s plenty of reasons why you want to have a mobile mechanic on your speed dial, rather than your traditional mechanic shop, but I’ve boiled it down to the top 5…
Mobile Mechanics Come To You
Perhaps the biggest advantage to hiring a local mobile mechanic is that they come to your location. This eliminates the need to pay for a tow truck in addition to the cost of the repairs. You can tell how reliable a mobile mechanic service is by the promptness of the mechanic to your location as well as the their skills and knowledge.
You can also hire a mobile mechanic in your area to come to your home to repair problems that you are already aware of. This means that you do not have to risk a mechanical breakdown or causing further damage by attempting to drive the vehicle to a brick and mortar mechanic shop for repairs.
If you have a breakdown on the side of the road, a reputable mobile mechanic will give you safety tips to follow until they are able to get to your location. These tips will likely include:
- Stay in the vehicle
- If at night, park the car in a lighted area if possibl
- Get a far off of the road as you can
- Preserve the battery in your cell phone in case of an emergency
No Additional Fees
Mechanic shops are businesses, and as businesses they have expenses. Unfortunately, it is often the customers that pay for these additional expenses through higher repair costs and storage fees.
On the other hand, a mobile mechanic is in a position to offer you a much better deal on your repair costs. Also, you will not have to worry about providing materials or supplies because the mobile mechanic will have the necessary tools with them.
Full Range Of Services
These types of mechanics offer a spectrum of services. Some of the services that are offered include:
- Oil changes
- Fluid flushes
- Fluid replacement
- Transmission service
- Brake repair
- Battery replacement
- Tire repair/replacement
You can use a mobile mechanic for all of your car service and repair needs. Unless it is a major repair, it is likely that most service calls for your car can be performed at your home or office.
Mobile Mechanics Offer Warranties
These professional mechanics always offer warranties. For example, you may get a warranty that covers parts and labor for up to a certain amount of time or a certain number of miles, whichever comes first. The best mobile mechanics will help look for a solution if they ever need to honor the warranty.
Mobile Mechanics Offer Upfront Written Quotes
A mobile mechanic will never begin working on your vehicle without first providing you with a written quote. By being a mobile mechanic, it is likely the mechanic has worked on a range of vehicles. This means they know how long it will take for them to complete the job, and as a result, they will be able to give you an accurate written quote.
Hiring the same mobile mechanic for all of your vehicle’s repair needs, the mechanic will develop a rapport with you. This is the type of customer service that is often lost when dealing with a traditional mechanic shop.
