Frequently Asked Questions

Is the price quoted, the price I will pay?

Yes, the price quoted is the price you’ll pay. You won’t pay a cent more and you’ll get exactly what’s listed in the inclusions.

And don’t worry, if there’s any additional work required, the mechanic will contact you and get your consent prior to starting.

Can I change my service date?

Sure, we get that things pop up. Just call our friendly team on 1300 655 661 and we’ll happily reschedule your booking.

There's no fee to reschedule your booking, however, if you’ve prepaid upfront on credit card, PayPal or ZipPay and wish to cancel your booking altogether, you will be refunded the original booking fee paid, minus a $20 cancellation fee.

Should you fail to show up at the time and place arranged with the Workshop without canceling in advance, you will forfeit the entire prepaid amount.

For full details see https://www.autoguru.com.au/terms#refunds

Does the price include parts and labour?

Yes, all our pricing includes parts, labour and GST.

Is there a loan car available?

Some of our workshops do offer a loan car and/or a drop off/pick up service (up to 5km from the workshop).

If the workshop is a Preferred Partner, these extras will be listed on the right hand side, underneath their pricing.

If the workshop is not a Preferred Partner, click the ‘Book Now’ button and then click the ‘Add a Roadworthy, Pink Slip or other common tasks’ text underneath the inclusions box at the top of the page.

Any additional services offered by the workshop will be included in this section.

What's the difference between a basic service and a logbook service?

A basic service includes engine oil and engine oil filter change, as well as a general safety inspection and inspection of all fluids.

If minor quantities of fluids are required, the mechanic will top these up.

A logbook service is a series of scheduled tasks recommended by the vehicle manufacturer at certain time intervals. Every logbook service is different. See “What’s Included In My Service”.

Will the mechanic stamp my logbook?

Absolutely, the mechanic will sign and stamp your logbook to meet manufacturer requirements.

They will sign off each task as it’s finished, and only stamp your logbook once all tasks specified by the manufacturer have been completed.

Will my warranty be affected if I book with one of your mechanics rather than the dealership?

The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) states that any certified mechanical workshop or mobile mechanic is indeed qualified to carry out logbook servicing as per manufacturer’s specifications, without voiding your New Car Warranty.

Our mechanics are able to carry out logbook servicing, according to the manufacturer’s specifications, using quality parts and lubricants.

The mechanic will sign off each item and stamp your logbook once all tasks are completed and your warranty will remain intact.

Where can I find the inclusions for my service?

Once you’ve typed in all your details and submitted the quote request form, you’ll see a list of suitable mechanics in your area and their costs to carry out your car service.

You can view all the inclusions for your service by clicking the blue 'Service Inclusions' button at the top of the page.

Can the mechanic come to me?

Yes! Our network of mobile mechanics can come to your home or workplace to carry out vehicle inspections, car servicing and some minor repairs.

Go through the search process and when you come to the page listing mechanics in your area, mobile mechanics in your area will be listed along with workshops.

Can I get quotes for repairs and inspections?

You sure can! Simply hit the “Repair” button under the ‘Great, what can we quote you for?’ section of the form and a bunch of common repairs tasks will come up automatically for you to select.

You can also type your specific repair issue into the blank search box and our system will bring up any related tasks.

If your particular repair or inspection task isn’t listed under the common items tabs, click the ‘No match? Add comment’ button and type your issue in the “Describe what you need” box at the bottom of the section.

Should you have more than one repair or inspection task to quote, you can add more tasks by clicking the +Repair or +Inspection tabs.

What are my payment options?

Booking through AutoGuru gives you access to three payment options:

1. Pay upfront using your credit card or PayPal;
2. Create a reusable, interest-free ZipPay account to pay now and make easy weekly or monthly payments over time; or
3. Pay the workshop once your car service and/or repairs have been completed.

Cancellation fees apply. For full Terms & Conditions visit https://www.autoguru.com.au/terms

What’s included in my service?

Once you’ve typed in all your details and submitted the quote request form, you’ll see a list of trusted mechanics in your area and their costs to carry out your car service.

You can view all the inclusions for your service by clicking the blue 'What's included?' text at the top of the page. It’s just under the three black boxes.

I arrived at the service centre at about 7:20, the mechanic was just opening the gates and the workshop. He advised that the office was just opening too and the customer service team member soon open the gate to the office. She had all the morning jobs printed out and ready to go and I was in and out in about 5 mins. At about 8:00 am the mechanic phoned to let me know my car needed the tyres rotated and that a cap was missing from an air conditioning valve. My car was ready at 4:45 pm when i arrived to pick it up I paid and left. Overall it was good service, my only complaint is they both the customer service team member and the mechanic (along with my printed receipt) told me that I had received a complimentary car wash and vacuum, this didn't happen. I had given the car a quick wash and vacuum the night before and in the morning when driving to the service centre had noticed a mark on the windscreen it was still there and I hadn't done a very good job on the wheel and they were still the same and there was a patch still under drivers door. I think they saw the car had been washed and assumed they had done it, I can see what happened and I was a bit amused next time I should take a dirty car to them :)

Fantastic service from Morris. We accidentally provided him the wrong contact number and Morris couldn't get hold of us to advise that we urgently needed new brake pads. One of the guys drove out to us to knock on the door and get the right contact number and advise of the urgent need to replace our brakes. We were local so he also picked us up when the car was ready! Top job on the service, a logbook service done better than than dealer. Without a doubt the best mechanic we've ever been to. Thanks Morris!

9 months ago, Midas Campsie did a major log book service to my car (Change spark plug for 6 cylinder including change brake fluid, oil etc), I was satisfied with the service so I went to see them again for a regular log book service (after travelling 12,000km) this May 2017, I left my car there and they said they will call me after few hours. They called me and said that my brake fluid is dirty and need changing, apart from that, they also said that I need to change the wiper blade and some other things that including wheel alignment. I then looked at the check list of the things they did 9 months ago during the major log book service and guess what? It was mentioned there that they have changed the brake fluid and also the wiper blades, I can understand the wiper blades that could be bad (but it was still good when I checked it) but my main concern is the brake fluid that they said it's and need to be flushed replaced again while according to them was changed 9 months ago. There are only 3 possibilities, 1) they did not really changed the brake fluid 9 month ago and said they did 2) it wasn't really dirty and they just want me to pay extra 3) that they changed the brake fluid 9 months ago and that the brake fluid is now really become dirty. I will replace the brake fluid today and see if it will become dirty after 12,000km. but overall rating for Midas is OK
