Can a mobile mechanic do everything that a dealership mechanic can do?

That moment when you encounter a car issue… we’ve all been there, haven’t we?

It can be really easy to get swept up in “what ifs”. For example, what if my car is damaged beyond repair? What if I can’t make it to the dealership in time to get my car fixed before my busy work week?

Before you have a nervous breakdown, remember that a dealership mechanic isn’t the only one out there who can help you with your car quandaries.

The mechanics here at Blue Toro are well trained, fully insured and ready to help you – wherever you are, whatever your needs.

Think a mobile mechanic can’t do everything a dealership mechanic can? Think again. Here are 5 ways a mobile mechanic is just as good, if not better than a dealership mechanic.

1 – Mobile mechanics can assist you with all of your vehicle needs

Many car owners will head to the dealership where they purchased their vehicle for all kinds of maintenance needs, including oil changes, tyre rotations and battery checks. What many car owners don’t realise is that mobile mechanics can perform the same services right in your driveway, usually at a lower cost. At Blue Toro, our mechanics are trained to do all kinds of preventative maintenance, including oil changes, tyre pressure checks, battery checks and inspections of lights, windscreen wipers, brakes and more.

2 – Mobile mechanics are prepared to handle even the biggest jobs

Even though they don’t perform repairs in a designated workshop, mobile mechanics carry all of the tools they need directly to their work sites. They also maintain good relationships with parts suppliers so you can get the components you need at a fair price. Thanks to their diverse training, Blue Toro’s mobile mechanics can work on any car, 4WD, truck or commercial vehicle. Best of all, any work done by a Blue Toro mobile mechanic is backed by a 12-month guarantee.

3 – You don’t have to worry about a middleman

Normally when you place a call to a dealership, you end up chatting with an office assistant or a salesperson- not helpful when you have a technical question. You can speak directly with your knowledgeable and experienced Blue Toro mobile mechanic at any time, without having to schedule an appointment. In the same way that a doctor knows their patients, a mobile mechanic knows your car inside and out and is ready to assist you with routine maintenance needs as well as complex repairs.

4 – The convenience can’t be beat

Most car owners know vehicles always seem to have problems at the least convenient times: In the middle of your morning commute, right before a big road trip or while you’re in the midst of a financial crisis. Mobile mechanics make life easier by coming directly to you, regardless of your location. This hassle-free option could save you hundreds in towing fees and gives you one less thing to worry about when you’re already swimming in car-related stress. Blue Toro’s trustworthy mechanics are committed to making sure you don’t have to pay for repairs you don’t need, while also ensuring your cars’ safety and functionality.

5 – Mobile mechanics have all the right tools to get the job done

Since cars have thousands of intricate parts, many vehicle owners feel like they need to go straight to a dealership for maintenance and repairs. It’s true a dealer can have most parts you’d need for your vehicle, but Blue Toro’s mobile mechanics also have access to thousands of parts for hundreds of different vehicle types. Best of all, mobile mechanics follow all manufacturer guidelines and use manufacturer-recommended parts so that your warranty won’t void. Additionally, Blue Toro mechanics will stamp your logbook, meaning you have a record of all the work that is done on your vehicle, and all parts and labour provided by Blue Toro mechanics are backed by a 12-month/20,000km guarantee.

Mobile mechanics will help maintain your car’s resale value when you engage them for regular servicing and checks. To learn more about this topic, download your free infographic ‘How to Maximise Your Car’s Resale Value’.
