YourMechanic was founded in 2012 with the goal to make car repair and maintenance affordable, convenient, and transparent. We started YourMechanic because we believed that the auto repair industry was broken.
Dealing with car problems is not only a time-consuming and frustrating experience, it is often expensive. Car owners often lack visibility regarding the quality of mechanics or fairness of price. At the same time, the mechanics who put in the hard work fixing cars make very little money at repair shops (less than 20% of what consumers pay), and rarely get the recognition they deserve.
Life’s too short to spend it at a repair shop. We offer services at the convenience of your home or office, 7 days a week, and provide fair and transparent estimates upfront.
We are on a mission to build the most convenient and trusted car repair service. Total trust comes from total transparency. Our website displays each mechanic's verified credentials, all the jobs a mechanic has done through our system, and actual transaction-based reviews so that customers know they are hiring someone trusted and competent.
All the pricing is calculated by our Fair Price Calculator which is based on industry standard labor times to perform services. This ensures that car owners are paying a fair price without the need to negotiate or shop around. We back the services provided by every mechanic in our platform with a 12-month or 12,000-mile guarantee and a $1MM liability policy.
By connecting mechanics directly with car owners in need of repair services, we are empowering these hard-working mechanics to control their quality of life. They are able to choose when they want to work (including evenings and weekends), and the type of cars and services they want to work on.
By working directly with car owners instead of shops and dealers, they now have an opportunity to earn a better living and the freedom to spend more time with their families. We provide them access to customers, schedule flexibility, and high-quality parts. Mechanics can focus on what they love — working on cars — and we take care of the rest.
