Speak to any car owner and they’ll be able to tell you a horror story about being on the receiving end of a bodged or expensive car repair.  According to a survey that we have commissioned this is a shamefully familiar story.

  • Almost a quarter  (23%) of people felt ripped off by the price they were quoted when they last visited a car mechanic
  • 23% also felt stressed out by the experience and 25% were even nervous about entering a garage
  • Roughly half (45%) had no idea how much common car repairs should cost

But, my friends it doesn’t have to be that way. Today we are fighting back against the frustrations of never knowing whether a car mechanic is giving you a fair price.  How, I hear you say. Well, let me introduce you to our new car repair price estimator.  All you have to do is add your car make, model, type of repair and location and there you have it in black and white; an estimate of the costs of that repair comparing dealerships, independent garages and ClickMechanic mobile mechanics.

Fair Prices Calculated from Real Data

The calculator looks at millions of data points across repair times, labour rates and part prices so please be assured that the estimate you see is based on actual costs. We’ll need a few more details from you to give you the exact cost before you book with us but there’s no doubt this is a huge step forward for transparency in the car repair sector.

Obviously, as you’ve got to this point in the article you’ve already tried the estimator, right?  Then you wise people will know that the results show that booking your car repair with ClickMechanic will save you 30% on average.  In fact the repair to the Audi A4 in the image above shows a whopping saving of 61% on the dealership and 14% on the independent garage. Not only are you saving your hard earned cash you’ll also enjoy the convenience of our trusty band of mobile mechanics coming to you to complete the job, thus taking the stress out of taking your car to a garage.

The Beginning of our Mission

We hope you find our price calculator really useful, it unquestionably gives you the empowerment and confidence to get the right price for whatever car repair service you need. An additional finding of our survey was that nearly a third of respondents didn’t feel comfortable questioning the quote they were given. Clearly the car repair sector needs to do better and it’s our mission to create a service that provides transparent pricing and allows you to take control of when and where you get your car fixed.
