MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The days of dropping off your car at the auto shop or dealer have come to an end as YourMechanic, the on-demand mobile mechanic service, is now available in 25 markets nationwide with further expansion plans set for this summer.
An auto-industry first, the YourMechanic website and mobile app provide instant online car repair quotes, mechanic profiles, reviews and 24/7 appointment scheduling. Mechanics are deployed to a customer's home or office to perform the service. Since the company's launch, YourMechanic has generated over 350,000 auto repair and maintenance quotes for consumers.
"Dealing with car problems is not only a time-consuming and frustrating experience, it's often expensive," says Art Agrawal, YourMechanic founder and CEO. "Car owners often lack visibility regarding the expertise of a mechanic or the fairness of the price charged. Our goal is to make car repair and maintenance affordable, convenient, and transparent."
On average, YourMechanic mobile mechanics have over ten years experience and most are master technicians with ASE certifications. The mechanics are extensively screened, and each mechanic has a profile page where customers can see a full list of their certifications, years of experience, job skills, and feedback from real customers.
With no auto shop or dealership overhead, YourMechanic not only passes savings of up to 30% on to its customers, but also offers mechanics the opportunity for better pay. All YourMechanic services are backed by a 12-month or 12,000 mile service guarantee.
"I like working for YourMechanic because I get to talk to my customers, make more money, set my own hours, and spend more time with my friends and family," says James Sommers, a mobile mechanic for YourMechanic. "Customers like us because we save them time and money."
