BookMyGarage launches mobile mechanic service

BookMyGarage has announced the addition of mobile mechanics to its service offering after its latest study revealed that 68% of customers would consider making the most of a mobile workforce.

The new service means motorists can now book a mechanic to service or repair their vehicles at their home or workplace.

They can have a range of work caried out, including routine servicing, brake disc or pad replacement, tyre replacement, air conditioning re-gassing, battery replacement, diagnostic checks, alternator repairs and coolant changes.

Jessica Potts, head of marketing at BookMyGarage, said: “We want to offer our customers as much convenience and choice as possible. With the option to book servicing and repairs using either our collect and deliver service or mobile mechanics, customers using our website can enjoy the convenience of having work carried out on their vehicle from the comfort of their own home.

“Mobile mechanics are a convenient way to have your car serviced or repaired if you can’t make it to a garage, or struggle to find time in your day to take the car to one. Many operate outside of normal working hours and on weekends, adding even greater flexibility for our customers, and without the overheads of running a garage, they can often be a cheaper option too.”

Meanwhile, the survey revealed that that tyre replacement (39%), mechanical repairs (35%) and routine servicing (23%) are the top three reasons for its customers using a mobile mechanic.
