Frequently asked questions
+

What is a Mobile Mechanic?

A Mobile Mechanic will usually come to your house or place of work with the parts, and the tools, they need to fix or service your car then and there. Alternatively they may come to collect your car, repair it at their garage and then return it to you.
+

What repairs will a Mobile Mechanic perform?

Mobile Mechanics can perform the majority of repairs your car needs, including: servicing, brakes, cambelt changes and more. Some will also perform more heavy-duty work such as clutch repair / replacement.
+

Do I need to be at home during the repair or service?

No. Indeed, the main advantage of a Mobile Mechanic is convenience: you agree logistics (e.g. keys) with them, and carry on with your day as normal, with no need to drop off or collect your car.
+

Can Mobile Mechanics change a clutch?

Depending on the car and the mechanic, yes. Some clutches are easy-to-access. Others require hours of time underneath the car - harder for a Mobile Mechanic.
+

Is a Mobile Mechanic cheaper than a 'fixed' garage?

Mobile Mechanics are often cheaper than a fixed-premises garage, yes, due to lower overhead costs. However, note that we always advise drivers to choose a garage or mechanic based on both price AND reputation. If in doubt, read their latest reviews on WhoCanFixMyCar.com.
+

What do I do if I need extra repairs that my Mobile Mechanic can't perform?

Not to worry! Many Mobile Mechanics will have access to a fixed-premises garage as well. If not, WhoCanFixMyCar.com will put you in touch with another of their 7,500 garages nationwide.
+

Can Mobile Mechanics do MOTs?

Yes, some mobile mechanics will carry out MOTs. They will often collect the car from you, take it to a MOT bay to carry out the MOT and then drop it back after. However, this can be a costly excercise for the mechanic due to travel costs so many Mobile Mechanics do not offer this service.
+

What do Mobile Mechanics charge?

Just like fixed garages, Mobile Mechanics will charge you for their labour and for the parts they need to complete the service or repair. In some cases this is cheaper than a fixed premises due to less overheads, but they also must travel and so need to be compensated for that time too.
+

Can I trust a Mobile Mechanic?

Read reviews before choosing a mobile mechanic or garage. You can also ask to see insurance information. Be wary of a suspiciously low price, it will often be cheap parts being used which will ultimately fail within a couple of months.

Mobile Mechanics

A Mobile Car Mechanic operates from a van as opposed to having a fixed position at a garage. This means that they can carry out car repairs mobile; offering customers convenience and flexibility on when they can get their car fixed. They can fix your car at work or even on your drive. They will also transport it to a nearby garage if a more complex repair is required.


Hesitancy to use them is often due to a lack of trust associated with not having an actual garage as a basis for reputation. The worry is that they will turn up, carry out some work and leave after taking money, only for the car to break down again and there is no way to contact them afterwards.

However, with Who Can Fix My Car you can compare reviews, prices and accreditation of local mobile mechanics for free. Additionally, find reassurance in that most are insured against damages that might occur, as well as offering warranties which protects against malpractice.


If your schedule is too busy to take your car to a garage for repairs, a mobile mechanic could be the perfect solution to finding car repair quickly with zero hassle.


Cost of Mobile Mechanic

Mobile mechanics are often a less expensive option for car repairs as they do not have many of the overhead costs associated with running or owning a garage. However, that is not always the case, as it depends how far they must travel to and from you to carry out the repair. When they are travelling, they are not working and thus need to be compensated for their time.

What can a Mobile Mechanic repair?

Brake Pads and Discs

Mobile brake repairs are a popular request and are relatively easy to carry out mobile.


Clutch repairs

Clutch repairs can be carried out by mobile mechanics. However, not all will repair clutches as it is not an enjoyable job because without a ramp, they must crawl under the car and lay on their back for over two hours whilst changing the clutch.


Full Car Service

A mobile car full service can be carried out at your home or at work with relative ease. A series of checks of your car's main systems will be undertaken as well as filter replacement and an oil top up.


Cambelt Change

We have many mobile cambelt specialists within our network whom can carry out a timing belt repair or replacement efficiently.


Paint Repair

Depending on the extent of the damage, paint repairs can be performed by a specialist mobile mechanic. We have many specialists within our network that can provide paint repair or car body repair.


Tyre Change

A tyre change is a simple job that can be completed just about anywhere. Just be sure to give the mechanic your tyre size when requesting a quote on Who Can Fix My Car.


Battery Change

Battery Replacement is usually a very simple job, whether you already have the battery or need a new one both supplied and fitted.


Electrical Faults

Although electrical faults can vary greatly in severity, many can be diagnosed and fixed by a mobile mechanic. Once diagnosed, if they cannot fix the issue themselves they will often recommend a fantastic garage that can help.

 


What are the Advantages of Mobile Repair?

A mobile car mechanic can be most useful if you are stuck in a tricky spot. Some operate 24 hours and can get out to you day or night, in order to carry out a repair when you need it the most.

They will often own a van and drive out to where your car is parked to carry out the repair work, ideal if your car will not drive or if it is unsafe to do so.

There is a huge amount of jobs they can carry out as many problems in a car can be repaired without the need for new parts or an entire team of mechanics.

However, there are of course certain jobs that they simply cannot complete as the amount of labour and tools required would not be made available when operating remotely, rather than for a garage.
