Mobile Mechanics: 5 Reasons to Have Your Mechanic Come to You

If you have to get any type of auto repairs done, the first thought that comes to your mind is to take your vehicle to a car mechanic. But in an age where everything can be ordered online or on your phone, why not have a mobile mechanic come over to you? Melbourne Auto Tech provides the best mobile mechanic crew in Thomastown. No matter where you are or what your repair requirement is in Melbourne, our team will always be there to help and assist you.

There are many who feel that there is no reason to hire mobile mechanics as they are not sure about the quality of work that they will provide. Many also have apprehensions about the costs around hiring a mobile car mechanic. But most of these concerns do not even exist. Here are some reasons why you should look to hire a mobile mechanic and how it can benefit you:

Convenience

Whether you are facing a car trouble on the road or you want an oil change at your home, a mobile mechanic will be there to get the job done. Mobile mechanics have begun to explore many ways of accommodating all the services that you would find in a garage on to a van or a small truck. This allows them to provide a wide range of repairs to customers no matter where they need it.

Personalised Service

When you hire a mobile mechanic from Melbourne Auto Tech, you will never face the problem of receiving generalised service. Our mobile mechanics work exclusively for the client who has hired their services. According to the appointments that are scheduled, our car mechanic will work on a one-on-one basis with you in line with your requirements.

No Tow Trucks

If you need your car hauled to a workshop, without the right tow truck, you might end up damaging your car even more. With a mobile mechanic at your service you will not have any such issues. You will be able to have your car repaired on location without the hassles of extra travel.

Easy Scheduling

The mobile car mechanic service from Melbourne Auto Tech can repair your car even when you are at home or when your vehicle is lying idle at your office parking lot for hours. All you need to do is book an appointment and we will be there at the time you choose. This has helped many in Thomastown to save time and focus their energies on other important matters.

Oversight

Many times, car owners have been told to stay outside when the car is being repaired at a workshop because of reasons like safety hazard and overcrowding of workspace. Such issues don’t exist when you hire a mobile car repair service. At Melbourne Auto Tech, we engage our customers to help them better understand the services and repairs that we provide.

Step by Step Guide for Car Battery Replacement

Step 1: Prep your Car

Park properly and engage the emergency brake so that your vehicle does not move. If you are parked in an incline, then remember to place a wedge or a block behind your tyres. Make sure that the engine is off. Ensure that the engine and any nearby parts are cool enough before you open the vehicle’s hood.

Step 2: Access the Battery

The battery could be located under the hood or even in the trunk, depending on the make and model of the car. Some car manufacturers have the batteries covered. Please refer to the owner’s manual if you are finding it difficult to locate or access the battery.

Step 3: Detach Cables

Like any regular battery, car batteries have positive and negative points. Universally the positive (+) point is identified using a red plastic cover or it is connected to red wires and the negative (-) point will have black markings. First, detach the black/negative (-) cable by using a wrench to loosen the nut. Then detach the red/positive (+) cable. Always remember to remove the negative cable first, then the positive cable. Also, do not use any tools to try to pry up the cable as it may cause damage and never ever use a metallic object to touch both ends of the battery.

Step 4: Remove the Battery

A car battery is usually held down using clamps. When you remove the clamps, make sure your collect the nuts and keep them safely. Be careful when you are lifting the battery. They are heavy and have acid in them. So, keep your hands steady and if available, utilise handles on the battery.

Step 5: Clean the Connectors

Use a brush and battery cleaning solution or a homemade mix of baking soda and water to clean the battery tray and connector wires. Make sure that every part is dry before installing the new battery. You can also use anti-corrosion solution.

Step 6: Install New Battery

When you are placing the new battery in the tray make sure that you align the red/positive (+) and black/negative (-) points with the right cables. Then, re-install the clamps the same way you removed them. When you attach the positive (+) and negative (-) side appropriately, remember to tighten them up with a wrench and check the connections before you start the engine.

Pro Tip: You can call the mobile mechanics at Melbourne Auto Tech for battery replacement services.
