RAC Mobile Mechanics – FAQs

A mobile mechanic operates out of a van, instead of a garage. This means they can come to you to carry out repairs or servicing – instead of the other way around.

For example, they can service your car at your home or work  whichever is more convenient. And if it turns out that you need a more complex repair when they arrive, they can recommend a garage to you.

What can a mobile mechanic do?
RAC Mobile Mechanics can carry out interim services, full services and oil changes. They can also carry out some repairs, including brakes and filters – as well as diagnostic checks.

Can a mobile mechanic come to my place of work?

Yes, our mobile mechanics can come to your workplace, as long as your car’s parked on a flat, even surface, isn't on the road, and your mechanic can access all sides.

We can also come to your home if it’s more convenient.

Do I need to be at home during the repair or service?

Your mobile mechanic needs to get your car keys from yourself or someone acting on your behalf. But once they have your keys, you can carry on with your day.

On the day, they'll call when they're on the way to make arrangements.

Can mobile mechanics do MOTs?
Our mobile mechanics can’t carry out MOTs. But we do have a network of local RAC Approved Garages than can do MOTs. Find out more here.
