Darren P
I started out with my dad in mechanics in his garage learning the trade before going to college to get my qualifications. In 2002 I set-up Mobile Auto Care with my brother Lee. and the business has grown from strength to strength and we now have 10 mobile mechanics in the team who are all fully qualified. We will inform you of which of our mechanics will be attending your job when we accept it, you'll always be in safe hands! At Mobile Autocare we tackle all types of repairs and work on all makes/models of car, so whatever the issue we'll fix it!

Lee, the mechanic, was absolutely amazing.
He serviced my Jeep Grand Cherokee just as well or better than the dealership so I also asked him to change/sort my rear breaks. Both jobs I will give 10/10

Lee was friendly and efficient when he arrived, but was over an hour late on the day, which was a touch inconvenient.

Reply from Darren:

I’m extremely glad you was happy with the overall work but unfortunately due to the over turned lorry on the A13 all
My vans was running at least an hour behind time hence why Lee was late arriving my apologies for that but unfortunately myself or my mechanics have absolutely no control on what happens on the roads and on some occasions I will normally send a cover mechanic but virtually all my mechanics were in the same traffic
Again my apologies for any inconvenience

I cant rate Leigh n Darren for reassuring a rather worried older lady who had never done this kind of Service via the internet before.
My garage would have charged me 350£ , my bill was £128 when you are on limited income anyway it means alot.

Leigh arrived on time within the alloted 2 hour schedule, he was polite personable explained in detail what he had done and what MIGHT need doing in the future, but emphasised that it didnt need doing now! So it was a reassurrance to me.

Don't hesitate any ladies out there that want a service but have no idea where to go, just use Click Mechanic
You wont be SORRY.

Head gasket inspection

Surprised to see Lee arrive earlier than expected. After replacing my Octavia's timing belt, and water pump. This after being told that my suspected faulty head gasket was nothing to worry about, and the small bit of whit gunge round the filler cap was no more than condensation. I decided to have the timing belt and pump changed anyway. I am no so pleased that I decided to take this action, as Lee showed me the old removed pump that was starting to break down, half of the plastic part of the pump had disintegrated; Lee explained that this was a common problem on these earlier pumps, and now the replacement is all steel, so should see me, and the car out. I would certainly recommend Click Mechanic's. Especially if they are all as good as Lee and Darren. One always has a fear of getting tradesmen on line. My fears were dispelled by the professionalism and advice given by Click Mechanic's Mobile Mechanic. Thank You. George Warren Read more
