I can't say thank you enough for the wonderful service that I received, a lot of useful information and recommendations for what needs to be done. Mechanic turned up and got straight to work on my vehicle, got it running very quickly. I am very keen to use this service again.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most mobile mechanics can do standard servicing checks and repairs like changing your oil or replacing your brake pads.

RAC Mobile Mechanics can carry out full services, interim services, full diagnostic checks and oil changes. They can also make some repairs, including replacing your brakes, springs and filters.

Our mobile mechanics can’t carry out MOTs. But we do have a network of local RAC Approved Garages that can do MOTs.

We’ll check your brakes, battery, tyres, steering, suspension, radiator, lights, wipers and more, just like in an interim service. And on top of that, we’ll also carry out a full charging system test, check your engine bay pipes and hoses, inspect your air filter and replace it if necessary, and run a full diagnostic test to check for any hidden problems.

And as with an interim service, we’ll also change your engine oil and oil filter, and make sure your brake fluid and windscreen wash are topped up.

Plus we’ll top up your power steering fluid if it’s running low. And as with an interim service, we’ll run a general road test before and after to make sure everything’s working properly.

In general, our mobile mechanics aim to complete a full service within 1 hour 45 minutes. But depending on things like what car you have and where it’s parked, it can sometimes take longer.

For example, on some types of car it might be harder to access the oil filter. And if the car isn’t parked in a safe location it might need to be moved, which takes time. We’ll let you know roughly how long we think it will take on the day, to make sure it’s as convenient as possible.

We might notice additional repairs your car needs during the service. If so, we’ll quote for this work – if we can do it on the same day, and you’re happy with this, we’ll do this extra work after your service. Of course that can add to the time it takes to work on your car.

Our full service doesn’t include a gearbox oil change – just a standard oil change and oil filter change.

But it’s easy to have your gearbox oil changed at an RAC Approved Garage.

We’ll always use the grade and specification of oil that your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends, at no extra cost.

This makes sure your warranties are still valid. Many providers charge extra for larger vehicles, like vans, that might need more oil.

But we won’t charge you more for any additional oil that you need. No matter what type of vehicle you have.

Yes. Once we’ve finished repair work, you’ll get a full post-repair report, along with an invoice.

With a full service, you’ll get a full service sheet breakdown which lists any further work your car might need now or in the near future.

We’ll also talk this through with you on the day to give you complete peace of mind.
