Recently, I had the opportunity to check out a service that I had, for quite awhile, wondered about and would it fit with the ever-changing consumer worldview. Okay, at least, here in the United States.
YourMechanic.com offers to come to you and service your vehicle's needs. While you continue your work day; they continue theirs. When all is done, that's exactly that. They're done with their day, you're done with your day and the day-off your car unexpectedly took is also done. Now, you're back on the road or at least able to head out if there's someplace you have to be.
Although this may not be a new service; it is for me. I'm glad I found it, used it and now I can recommend it.
The mechanic I met, Peter, came with 35 years of experience, licensed, prepared and engaged. I haven't found that at decades old, established companies anywhere, ever. Perhaps, that old model, along with its particular brand of hassles and drawbacks is becoming obsolete. One thing for sure, it won't be missed by me.
In as much as the auto/mechanic industry is not my primary area of expertise, allow the following illustration which draws on my personal background to drive home the point:
If YourMechanic.com were to announce an Initial Public Offering (IPO) tomorrow, you bet you'd find me among those first in line positioned to grab up as many shares as possible for a long term "hold."
