There is one inevitable fact in life – it’s busy. Even when you try to slow down, it always ramps back up. There’s simply not enough time in the day to accomplish everything you need to do. And just as the dust begins to settle and you feel that everything is under control… your car breaks down. What now?
Well, that’s easy. Call your local mobile mechanic!
What is a Mobile Mechanic?
A mechanic is an individual who is certified to repair and maintain machinery. In this particular case, your car. You take your car to the shop when it needs repairs and the mechanic fixes it for you. A mobile mechanic is a car repairman that comes to your location and fixes your car. They move from broken car to broken car. They are always on the move. They are mobile.
What does a Mobile Mechanic Do?
After making an appointment by setting up the time and location, a mobile mechanic will bring his equipment to your car and perform repairs or maintenance. You could be at work, at home eating lunch or stranded in the parking lot of your favorite restaurant and the mobile mechanic will take care of the repairs immediately.
Most mobile mechanic vehicles come equipped with all the necessary tools and equipment to help you get back on the road. In most cases, the mechanic will either bring the parts with him or take a look at your car first before heading back out to purchase them from an auto parts store.
The Benefits of Using a Mobile Mechanic
There are several benefits to using a mobile mechanic over a traditional mechanic when you need basic car repairs.
It is not nearly as expensive to use a mobile mechanic as it is a traditional one. A mobile mechanic does not have the additional overhead costs such as a facility, heavy equipment, and staff. This allows you, the customer, to save anywhere from 20% to 30%. Savings that can go toward buying a new car if you and your mobile mechanic start seeing each other too frequently.
Not only will a mobile mechanic save you money but it will save you time as well. It is extremely convenient to have someone drive to your car while you go about your daily routine. So much time is wasted staring at your watch waiting for your care to be fixed. Your mobile mechanic works around your schedule and not the other way around.
The customer service that accompanies a mobile mechanic is usually more responsive and focused. While attending to your car, you are the only customer your mobile mechanic is concerned with. Customer service is always much better when attention isn’t divided.
Hire the Right Mobile Mechanic
As with all hired services, make sure you properly research mobile mechanics in your area. Confirm that they are certified and read as many reviews as possible. Go the extra mile and ask for anonymous references as part of your due diligence. And of course, double check to make sure the parts and labor have a warranty.
