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 booked my logbook service at 10am. I went on time. The staff said they only collect the car in the morning, the service would be done in noon. I was not expecting that and was not informed beforehand. I had no transport to go home and come back to pick up my car. I had to wait for more than 3 hours for the service.

From the reminder emails to the greeting at reception BASC it is the real deal in old fashion service. BASC was recommended to me by friends and family who have older cars and were impressed by their cleanliness and attention to detail. I had my Hyundai 45,000km new car service done and the experience exceeded my expectations. Love my new car smell when I left the workshop! Danny Wilson. Swansea

Thanks to auto guru I was able to find a great mechanic to service my car. I was aware of some issues before the service but the mechanic had verified the issues they were able to start a bit earlier then the booked time and that told me what the problems where and what needed to be done first. Really good service from tyreright Toukley (argy tyre and service Toukley)

Absolutely awesome, the best mechanic I've been to in a long time. I rang, was given a time to have my car serviced, and it was done at a great price. Straight in when I arrived, no waiting around like I've had to at other mechanics, and friendly caring staff my car was serviced and inspected and I was told of any repairs that might need to be fixed. I will definitely return to SBR Mechanics again.

I was surprised at the money I saved by not getting my car service done by the car dealer. My invoice definitely listed all the log book service requirements to maintain my warranty. I've only given 4 stars because I was verbally advised that my brakes were still okay, but I didn't get any facts, such as an estimate of mileage or depth of lining left on the pads/discs. I will consider using them again.

I was welcomed by the Receptionist, filled out some paper work, waited less than 5 minutes in a well set out waiting room (internet, lounges, tv, coffee machine), when a driver asked for me, to drive me home so I could do a few things while I waited for my car to be repaired. My driver was very polite engaging me in conversation all the way home. Later (at home), I was contacted by a mechanic saying I needed extra parts, with a full explanation as to why they were required. After a short discussion, the process went ahead without a hitch. Allocated time for repairs was 1 - 2 hours, after which I was contacted by the mechanic, who was waiting outside my home for the return pickup journey. Again I was engaged in conversation, and it was no time before I was dropped off at the workshop, where my car was waiting, made a quick payment after being told what the mechanics did to the car, preparing me for the next service for allotted work to be performed. I jumped in the car and drove home. A worry free 150000km service for my very reliable 2011 Outlander.
