WhoCanFixMyCar takes a closer look at the likely cost of calling out a mobile mechanic to get your car started

There’s nothing more frustrating than finding yourself late for work – then your car won’t start because it’s got a flat battery.

Thankfully help is at hand for those people who find themselves in this tricky position (and have no way of charging their battery) in the shape of a mobile mechanic.

Mobile mechanics are nothing new but with COVID-19 and the general trend towards working from home, the popularity and availability of mobile mechanics has skyrocketed as people increasingly see the benefits of the garage coming to you – rather than the other way round.

But how do mobile mechanics work, how long does it take for them to get to your door, and most importantly, how much does it cost?

The good news is that using an online car maintenance marketplace such as WhoCanFixMyCar allows you to compare prices from mobile mechanics closest to you and read reviews from their previous customers all in a matter of seconds, before deciding which mechanic to choose. Simply enter your registration and your post code and WhoCanFixMyCar will do the rest.

Plus, for added convenience, mobile mechanics don’t just come to your home. If your car won’t start and you are in the office, many mobile mechanics will pop out to your place of work, often at short notice, to either give you a jump start, or if that doesn’t work, recharge your battery instead.

It is important to remember that while a mobile mechanic will be able to jump start or recharge your battery, there may be an underlying reason why your battery isn’t working properly, and you might want to think about replacing it for a new one in the near future.
