Mobile Mechanics To Perform Routine Upkeep

By Steven Munroe

Mobile mechanics are qualified car technicians who ride to the locations of the cars to mend or perform a car service. They work the same as a engineer that has a shop, except that they travel to the vehicle that needs the fix or service. They drive a vehicle that is fitted out with the mechanical tools wanted to do such services on autos. They can do emergency repairs on the side of the road if the auto has left the driver stranded. They can also perform booked routine upkeep services. This offers a new level of convenience to the consumer who won't have to drive to a store and wait for the service to be done. They can have the engineer to come to their home or work place and carry out the majority of the jobs right in the parking lot or drive.

Check with the manufacturer's log book to see when the next routine upkeep service is required. Mobile mechanics can do a number of these services including checking the battery. They can check and clean the battery terminals or add battery fluid if required. They can also replace a dead battery. Are the brakes squeaking? Have them check the brake liquid. If necessary, they can flush out the old and add in new brake fluid. They can check brake pads for wear and if necessary replace them. They can test the electronic system and the ABS or anti-lock brakes.

Mobile mechanics can perform the most straightforward of jobs with services such as having the engine's oil changed. They can change the oil and replace the oil filter. Imagine the benefit of this service because it is probably the one serviced needed to be done more than any other. Think about all the times you've had to hang about for the oil to be modified. Now the waiting game is done if the engineer can come to you to perform the task. While they're at it they can check the fuel filter and if it's clogged or mucky, it can easily get replaced.

Common car maintenance jobs include:

- Vehicle wash
- check or replace windshield wipers
