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 in for log book servicing. The shop was easy to find; ample parking space. The mechanic was very knowledgeable and answered my queries courteously. I was provided with a loan car as requested. The service ran for six hours, all areas covered except aircon filter replacement. The car was not washed when returned; according to them it is not part of the package. Overall, still a five star experience. Thank you.

I did a major service and timing belt kit service and I am very happy with their work on my car. They quoted best price than other workshops. The car drives much better and I would like to thank them for doing the job professionally. They even replaced parts such as wipers with good quality ones and globe lights for free. I would recommend MC for auto service.

Seemingly solid company who serviced my car for a good price and was prompt with returning me to my car. Only negative I can fault with the experience was the fixedprice car service telling me to drop off my car at 8:30am when perfect auto service actually opened at 9:00am. All in all I am happy with the experience and will take my car back when its due.

THE BEST MECHANIC IN THE WEST! You will be IMPRESSED! I was originally booked for another mechanic but because I wanted it done sooner rather than later, I decided to go with Euro Auto Care. I glad I did! Very professional and friendly. Direct contact was made prior to any extra work that needed to be done on top of my appointment (basic service). The job was done and completed on the day which was very convenient. The car is running better and I couldn't be happier! I think I've found my mechanic! Trust me, you will enjoy your experience at this workshop.

Took my 1998 Subaru Liberty in for a standard service along with some other issues that needed fixing. As a female - I am always hesitant when taking my car to any mechanic due to feeling like my lack of knowledge is being used against me. Last time I took my car to the Subaru dealership in Docklands for a service, I walked out paying over $1,000 with a shopping list of things I needed to have fixed on the car. Well Mark at Tyrepower was completely different. He was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and courteous AND did not try to overcharge or add anything on that I didn't need. Highly recommend Mark to any females out there who are uncomfortable with mechanics. Will definitely be returning to service my car in the future. Thanks Mark :)

I had one of those non-specific intermittent error messages occur with my European car. One of those issues that the dealer usually strings me along for thousands of dollars. I was put on to an independent mechanic that had all the diagnosis equipment and who provided a pragmatic no-nonsense analysis. Within 24hrs I was off and running for under $200 with peace of mind restored and guarantees of resolution.

Total it cost was $860 after being told it was $809, took two days to order in a $320 hose, they added silly little things like washer fluid, injector cleaner on top of a full tank of fuel, said they had done a transmission oil change but feel no difference at all, car exhaust now doesn't sound the best, and my car now idles irregular.
