Benefits of Mobile Mechanics Have Over Traditional Workshops

Anyone who is reading the term Mobile Mechanic for the first time and forming some ideas about it already, you’re probably right in your ideas. A mobile mechanic is a car servicing center that you call upon when you cannot (or even when you do not) get your vehicle to a traditional workshop. But saying that is kind of like cleaving half of its benefits. 

The advantages they offer over traditional workshops are sometimes so severe that often choosing the latter is quite “not-the-brightest-idea”. Inclusion of hydraulics and battery-powered wrenches has essentially turned these mechanics into garages on four wheels and they can pretty much perform any service performed by a mortar and brick workshop.

Let’s check out the comparable benefits of a mobile mechanic:

Mobility

Anyone can guess this is the most obvious advantage of mobile mechanics have over traditional workshops. Normally you’d have to get yourself (of course, along with your car) towed to a garage after your vehicle breaks down. This could be really problematic if you’re stuck in a place you probably wouldn’t like to be. Besides that there’s a more serious consideration. If your auto insurance doesn’t cover roadside services then you’d have to pay a lot more than expected. A mobile mechanic simply shows up where you are and does the required service and you pay exactly what is needed. So you save both time and money.

Speed

When you need the services of a workshop, most of the times you need to make an appointment few days before your booking would allow dropping the vehicle for servicing. It can be days before you’d get your vehicle back since they’d do all the services required by your car whether you want them to at that time or not. This is especially inconvenient if you don’t have more than one car/vehicle. Mobile mechanic service is almost instantaneous. You just have to call the right one and they’ll get to your place as fast as possible.

Cost

Services of mobile mechanics cost less than traditional workshop for two vivid reasons: they don’t have to pay utility and rent expenses and there is no huge team of mechanics. So naturally they don’t have to include the potential expenses related to these factors into what they’d charge you for the services rendered. It’s kind of like passing on the benefits they save on those expenses to you (if you want to see it that way).

WeatherBenefits of Mobile Mechanics Have Over Traditional Workshops

Not all of us are pro-racers, or at least not what you’d call a good driver. Some people are not so confident in their driving skills and that could prove to be a fatal flaw during harsh weathers like heavy rains or snow. Trying to get your car to a traditional workshop during one of these conditions could potentially risk you life if you’re bad at handling slippery roads. But mobile mechanics respond to a customer’s needs at the shortest time regardless of the weather condition since they tend to be expert drivers. You don’t need to brave the wet roads and you do not need to pay extra for towing services.

Expertise Guaranteed

When you call a mobile mechanic, an expert independent contractor comes to you and handles you vehicle right in front of you whereas when left at a traditional workshop, an apprentice might be assigned to handle your car. Undoubtedly, they need to learn through experience but we just don’t prefer to be the lab rats.

So basically, mobile mechanics are more efficient at response time, cost and interactions with their customers than traditional workshops.
