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.

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.

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

"Well, several factors should be highlighted here, firstly, I am a very fussy car owner, and am always concerned regarding how my vehicle is treated when not directly in my care. Also, this was the first service outside the dealer network, I was nervous! I was resigned to eventually going outside the dealer, because of the cost and also the way the dealer took me (and my car) for granted. I have 6 months of warranty coverage remaining, and wanted to get an outside inspection done before the final service is due. I have had no specific problems with the car, so I was confident the service would be trouble free. Wrong! When I returned to the workshop to collect my car, I noticed it was still up on the hoist, but nobody around it. As I looked in, the business owner came over and introduced himself, a pleasant chap, I thought. He asked me to take a look at a COUPLE of things he has noticed, and wanted me to see for myself. 1 - one of the front struts was leaking badly, he estimated that most of the oil had escaped by this stage, the strut, dust cover and brake lines had all been covered in oil, and dripping, (I checked my garage floor, and yes, there was evidence of a small oil leak, for some time (soaked into the concrete!)) and 2 - of the two protection plates fitted under the engine, one forward of the other, the front one was only partially attached, and the rear one was totally missing! I was totally surprised, the previous service was done at the authorized dealer! It was obvious that the plate had been removed and not replaced. Tell me, how can I, or anybody else, have confidence in the work done at the dealer when this sort of oversight can happen? I'm now glad, very glad, I went elsewhere to get this service, for an independent review of the vehicle condition. I then called the original dealer to get the faults attended to, they were not in the least concerned, and offered their next available slot to get an inspection. AN INSPECTION!, then they will order parts. That means I will have to take two days off work to get this fixed! I'll be taking my car back to my newfound service establishment when this work is done, just to check they did it right! Are there no independent inspections at the dealer when a vehicle is service complete, just to avoid this sort of thing? (A v/quick lookover would have spotted the missing panels, at least!) I love the car (with the possible exception of the park brake system), but the experience has been somewhat soured by these oversights. Jeep Australia needs to know about such events, and I'm not confident the dealer will advise. Do with this info as you will, I will be discussing these incidents with the service manager this week, when I get the ïnspection". Good luck, Cheers 2014 Jeep GC 6, Limited. @ approximately 24K."

"Work was carried out quick efficient and on time- had a clutch replaced. Clutch was shuddering when picked up - not told it would take time to bed in. Had to go back the next day to get checked. Not to sure if clutch will be fine after bedded in. Waiting game at the moment."
