What is a mobile mechanic

Let’s clarify the common myths and misconceptions about mobile mechanics. 

You might think that we only fix broken down cars and dead batteries on the side of the read, when in fact, we mostly do a full vehicle servicing.  Just like the dealership, we can carry out complete log book and new car servicing from you home, business or construction site.

Myth

You only do breakdowns

Mobile mechanics only fix broken-down vehicles on the side of the road. This is a common misconception created by those old TV commercials, where a greasy old van rocks up, to save you from a breakdown. This is more commonly known as roadside assistance.

FACT

We do new car & log book servicing

With high-quality tools and equipment on board our professional van, we perform car and trailer servicing, plus a complete range of mechanical upgrades & repairs.  All from your driveway, business or construction site.

Myth

You must go the dealership to protect your warranty

Myth

Trailers don't need a service

Trailers don’t need any servicing or maintenance. We’ve all seen this one before. The rusty old trailer that never gets any love or attention. It’s hooked up and driven around carrying some of your most precision cargo, risking a major crash or safety incident.

FACT

We'll can look after you're trailer too

Most Tradies are towing a heavy trailer full of tools, back and forward to the job site every day.Whilst they’re not super complicated, the brakes and bearings, lights and framework are all prone to wear and tear.

With a little bit of love and elbow grease, your trailer can last a lifetime and pay for itself many times over, without skipping a beat or spilling your precious cargo all over the Tasman Bridge.
