Pleasant experience with a Mobile Mechanic

Pleasant experience with a Mobile Mechanic

Postby prefect » Fri Feb 14, 2020 1:43 pm

I arranged via a newspaper advert for a mobile mechanic to check my brakes due to a rear wheel beginning to squeal when slowing the vehicle.
The mechanic 'Kev' checked and replaced a brake disc, he then said he would check the other rear wheel and also replaced a disc on that wheel. He did all this in about 40 mins. The cost.... 30 euros.
He is based near Torrevieja and will cover up to 20km from base.
I was so grateful I said I would post his service record on this Forum. He said that if he received any business from this posting he would advertise on the forum. Tel 665 329 974. 7 days a week call out for ITV tests, electrics, brakes and Diagnostics

where did he get the discs from as he would not carry them as stock and they cost a lot more than you paid

Agreed, €30 would have barely covered travelling time & labour.

Also checking the other side was not a favour, brake discs and pads should always be replaced in axle sets so it would have been grossly unprofessional for him not to have done both sides or nothing.

Hello:

In Spain we said "Nadie vende duros a 4 pesetas", I would update and translate for "Noone sells Euros for 80 cents". To go and comeback took him half hour, make the work very quickly 1 hour. And the break disk arround 40€ minimum.

But maybe he makes magic.
