Property Professional

Local car mechanic who can quickly and easily service the brakes or carry out an MOT, regardless if you drive a Honda or a BMW.

No job too small, getting your car valeted or checking the battery life. Or too big, auto body repair and spray or a full engine rebuild.

Expert car mechanic services for cars, motorbikes and scooters include;

Servicing

  • annual service choosing between small (replacing engine oil and topping up fluids), medium (cleaning or changing filters and servicing the brakes) or a major service (in addition to everything else, includes a full diagnostic and tuning)
  • MOT certificate to proof road worthiness for a period of a year
  • air conditioning, a standard feature in most modern vehicles, which needs to be re-gassed every few years

Repairs and replacements

  • brakes and shock absorbers, the most common parts to wear out and need replacing
  • batteries, from a recharge after leaving the lights on or old needing replacement
  • clutch replacement or repair
  • diagnostic systems for fault finding on all makes of cars
  • exhausts, repairing a small hole or replacing an entire exhaust to prevent noise and reduced fuel efficiency
  • gearbox maintenance, repair or replacement - it's important that they are in good working order as they provide the torque and speed to the engine
  • tyres choosing from low profile, run flats, high performance, including the balancing and aligning of the wheels to keep the car stable on the road, reducing wear out

Body work carried out in a garage workshop or as a mobile service

  • scratches, chips, paint repairs
  • dents from a small paint-less dent to a full panel replacement
  • bumper scrapes and scuffs to full replacement
  • spray painting whether single panel or a full body spray paint

So, if you need a car mechanic to service or repair your car or motorbike, HaMuch has thousands of friendly, Motor Vehicle Repairers Association (MVRA) mechanics ready to change your brakes, perform an annual car service, balance and align new tyres or fix that alternator issue.

Do you need a car mechanic to fix your car?

When your car breaks down, starts making strange noises or starts flashing lights you’ve never noticed before on the dashboard, it’s easy to panic. Luckily a trusty car mechanic can make a quick assessment of the issue and recommend the best way to rectify it.

Although it can be tempting to Google what’s wrong with your car, or assume you understand the issue from your own prior knowledge, it’s never a good idea to chance a DIY repair on your car. HaMuch makes it easy to find qualified, friendly and reasonably priced car mechanics in your local area. So next time you run into some car trouble, you’ll know who to call!

What does a car mechanic do?

An expert car mechanic will inspect your car and identify problems with anything from the suspension to the engine. They will be knowledgeable and experienced, practised at managing everything under the bonnet of your car, and will be able to source spare parts, fit replacements, or clean and repair faulty components.

The responsibilities of a car mechanic include:

  • General car diagnostic work: Car mechanics use specialist diagnostic devices to identify and fix problems with your car quickly and efficiently.
  • Inspection of car faults and errors (MOT): Motor vehicles must be inspected at regular intervals, during an annual MOT. When your car undergoes an MOT, the mechanic will check that everything is in order with the vehicle. If something isn’t right, they will recommend appropriate fixes or component replacements.
  • Advising on maintenance: A mechanic can recommend the best ways to keep your car in shape and on the road for longer.
  • Repairing car faults and damage: The biggest part of a car mechanic’s job is to fix and repair your vehicle at a car repair shop or garage. A mechanic will be adept at many tasks around car repair, from fixing dents and touching up paintwork to replacing engine components.
