It's a pity the back office aspect of this company (Click Mechanic) isn't up to scratch. Failure to pass on vital information related to my booking, failure to communicate effectively, failure to ensure charges are confirmed and booked etc.
The idea is sound but the implementation and back office let it down massively.
I could not, in all honesty, recommend using this company for anything related to booking a mechanic. Save you sanity and just go direct to a mechanic.
