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.

We sent our Suzuki Swift Sport for a scheduled 3 year service. Our car hasn't travelled many km's. The mechanic at Midas South Melbourne was honest enough to let us know that the spark plugs change wasn't necessary. Great tip and saved us $130! He was friendly and finished the job inside a couple of hours. Thanks guys!

Thorough and professional service. Anthony recommended some work which will need doing; took the time to explain the problem - what it meant, what the risk was of not doing it - in a way that I did not feel pressured to get it done. The complimentary clean was a lovely additional touch!

Never like a surprise cost like replacement of brake pads and rotors - however glad that it got picked up before it was too late. $450 is apparently rather competitive for this (Holden Cruze). Car was ready on time and loan car available. Would recommend.

From the moment I walked in, I felt like I was in safe hands. They didn't try and take advantage of the fact I was a woman either & a baby seat in the back! Nice and clean reception area, I got a courtesy car to use while they serviced my little Toyota so I could get to work and back again. They kept me informed of what was going on with the car. I left the place with a smile on my face and paying exactly what I had been quoted through Fixed Price!

I wanted to try a log book service (40,000) for my Jeep Grand Cherokee. I booked online. I received a reminder call the day before the service confirming all parts had been procured. I was greeted by name and the service was performed in the morning. My car was serviced well and also cleaned inside and out! I was impressed with the staff and the service overall. Subsequently I have had my wife's Lexus serviced with LineaRossa. I commend their service approach.

Klem is such a fantastic guy, he's clearly very passionate about cars and he really ensured that I was completely satisfied with my log book car service. I drive an electric hybrid (Mitusbishi Outlander PHEV), and this was absolutely no problem for Klem. His mechanics are funny, helpful and courteous. The entire team at Princes Motor Repairs do an outstanding job! So much better than a car service at a dealership. Cannot recommend these guys enough!
