On-Demand Mechanic Service Expands to Metro Detroit


An on-demand mobile mechanic service, called YourMechanic, is now available in metro Detroit; offering oil changes, tire repairs, and other services at a customer’s home or office.

“Our goal is to make car repair and maintenance affordable, convenient, and transparent in Detroit,” says Art Agrawal, founder and CEO of California-based YourMechanic. “We’re excited to be expanding to Detroit as our research has shown a demand for our mobile mechanics. This is the center of the auto industry so it also feels somewhat nostalgic to be finally expanding into the motor city.”

Customers can download the mobile app or visit YourMechanic.com to book an appointment, get a fixed upfront price, make payments, and access the vehicle’s service history. Customers enter what they believe is wrong with their car, their location, the make and model of the vehicle and then book an appointment with a mechanic in the area.

Agrawal says the most popular services are for oil changes and for cars that have trouble starting. He says the service is available for most vehicles, except electric and diesel-powered vehicles, unless there is a skilled mechanic in the area available.

Aside from metro Detroit, recently added to YourMechanic’s 25 markets are Boston, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Seattle, among other cities across the United States.
