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.

Used the service for the first time for basic service and pink slip. My car is 10 years old, so it required additional work. All work was explained to me and priced before it was done, I got a description of all work completed, labour time and costs were itemised, FREE car wash included and the car runs better than ever before. I also got a discount of $95 by booking online with 'Fixed Price Car Service'. Prices quoted by Darren - Manager were reasonable and I will use them for all future services.

Being new in Sydney I wasn't sure where to go to get my car serviced. Stumbling across the website I thought I gave it a try. I'm certainly impressed with the way it was handled by both the website and the garage that I chose, JC Auto Group in Botany. New and great experience, I'll use the service again for my next scheduled service for sure.

The staff are good on reception and explaining maintenance scope to customer. The only let down of them is the time management which I find it unpleasant. I drop a car 0830am, they promise to call back upon completion but they didn't until I call and ask them. Feel a bit frustrated, car wasn't even ready at 3.40pm.

The young lady at the reception was rude and abrupt! Firstly she didn't have my booking in the system, so then we had to go through the process of recording it. I thought it may be just a bad day, so I shrugged it off, but she was no better when I went to collect the car today. She either needs to be trained in customer service or not be in a customer facing role.

Ace and the team were very knowledgeable, personable and reasonable with their pricing. They noticed I needed new brake pads and fitted them then and there. Definitely would recommend them as being female sometimes mechanics try and charge you more for services you do not need or even worse do a shonky job. Will use them again for their great service and will recommend them to others. Thanks Ace.

Having recently purchased a 3 year old Merc C250 I was keen to avoid the cost of dealer servicing however it was important to find a local service centre that had Mercedes Benz experience, factory diagnostic equipment, and a policy of using factory parts where possible. I was extremely happy to find these guys so close to home and with the Mercedes Benz experience etc that I was hoping for. MB did a great job and went about it in an efficient and friendly way. The cost was very reasonable and I will definitely be using them again. Many thanks!
