Additionally, it means there is no need to organise lifts or a taxi after dropping your car off at garage. It also means no waiting about at the garage, unsure of how long the job will take.

Can complete most of the same repairs as garage

Contrary to widespread belief, mobile mechanics can carry out nearly all  the same repairs as mechanics at a garage. Clutch jobs can be tricky as they often require a ramp, therefore its  a pretty strenuous and laborious task for a mechanic to perform one without – they’d have to lie under the car for a lengthy period. Some mobile mechanics can even carry out your MOT. They can collect your car from your destination of choice (home/work) and take it to a garage MOT bay to carry out the test.
