RAC expands mobile services

The RAC has recruited more than 150 mobile mechanics to meet growing demand for its remote services.

Mobile Mechanics was launched last June to support the increasing number of UK adults now working from home part or all of the week. It delivers repairs at a time and to a location most convenient to drivers and now covers 80% of national postcodes across the length and breadth of the UK.

Services include complete diagnostic checks and interim and full services by technicians that are qualified to IMI Level 2 standard and EV trained.

RAC service, maintenance and repair chief executive Paul Coward said: “Our teams at the RAC know just how time-consuming and challenging managing the servicing schedule of a fleet can be. For this reason, it’s vital they can rely on a servicing solution that is delivered efficiently via experienced staff who are trained to extremely high industry standards.

“We believe our nationwide RAC Mobile Mechanics servicing and repair offer ticks both boxes for fleets – the confidence of not only having servicing completed to vehicle manufacturer specifications by fully qualified technicians but carried out wherever the vehicle happens to be.

“Our flexible booking system means customers are able to pinpoint specific timeslots for servicing to ensure vehicles are quickly available for drivers again and, with no need to take vehicles to a central location or dealer for servicing, there are significant time gains to be had too.”
