It is not guaranteed that all of our mechanics carry this tool with them to every appointment. Therefore, having your battery jumped by the mechanic may make more sense in a situation such as this at the time of appointment. However, your technician will be able to test the battery beforehand and make recommendations on possible repairs if needed.
