I’ve been seeing advertising online for a new mobile mechanic site. I won’t name it. There’s another one that I’ve used before and got the mechanics card and contacted him directly for a service later at a lower cash price. I’ve learned to obtain information from the internet to do almost any car repair so I don’t use them anymore.
Basically, it’s kind of like an Uber for car mechanics. “Certified” mechanics get validated with the site and then customers in that area can get quotes and schedule service from any address that has “mechanics” available. Supposedly it’s cheaper than a shop and the mobile feature is obviously quite convenient.
Do you think that this is a threat to the existence of the shops that have the lease fees and staff to pay for or what’s your opinion about it?
