ClickMechanic

A company that has created an online marketplace for car mechanics. It is located in London, England and was founded in 2012.

ClickMechanic is a London-based company that has a platform on which users can get instant quotes on car repairs and book car repair and servicing appointments with vetted mechanics.

Product

Users in the United Kingdom can visit the website and enter information about their location and vehicle registration in order to get a price quote. The platform has an honest pricing page available for viewing by customers so that they can ensure that the quote they are receiving is fair and industry standard.



Users can then confirm their booking by entering a preferred date, time, and location for the work to be done. They then need to enter credit card information to complete the booking. Mechanics are stated to arrive within the appointment time and are capable of working on the car either in a requested location or in a local mechanic's garage. Upon completion of the work and confirmation of satisfaction from the customer, the credit card is charged. Users will then receive their invoice in their email and have the opportunity to rate their mechanic. 



Mechanics are vetted through a process that checks that they have at least a level 2 City and Guilds motor mechanic qualification, liability and trade insurance, and at least five years of trade experience.
