Thankfully, there are a number of apps and websites which offer on demand car repair via a mobile app, or as the vernacular says, ‘Uber for car repair’ or more simply put ‘Uber for mechanics’.
Without further ado, here are the best apps we’ve seen to help your vehicle get started again:
Fiix: On Demand Auto Repair Mobile Mechanics
Fiix is the Uber for car repair. Fiix will send an experienced car mechanic to your home or office within hours of placing a request through their website. Operating in Toronto (GTA), Canada and the surrounding areas, Fiix wants to fix your car problem like nothing else in the market. They send their registered independent contractors to your doorsteps within 2 to 3 hours of placing a request.
The company states that the prices are generally 30% lower than getting your car serviced at a local dealership. As such, Fiix isn’t the only on demand car repair service in the market, but the company has already done millions in sales since its inception.
Otobots: Auto Repair with Mobile Mechanics
Otobots connects car owners with experienced car technicians to make car owners hectic life easy. Their technology enabled on demand mobile app service is just like Uber for cars. They enable customers to find affordable auto mechanics at the comforts of their home or office by simply entering the vehicle information and choosing the desired service.
The mechanics can set their own availability timings, and customers can book them during those hours. The work is done at 20 to 40% lower costs than a local dealership and in a much quicker fashion. Hence, the service is proving to be a hit with the masses. They are currently operating in the entire Chicagoland metro area.

Wrench is an on demand full car service shop that promises to make car repair and maintenance an easy affair for the customers by sending certified mechanics within few hours of placing a request. It’s the Uber for all your car servicing needs.
Their mobile app takes the stress out of your life by letting your book a car mechanic with seconds. So, instead of taking the car to the repair shop, Wrench brings the shop to your home or office.

Your Mechanic: On Demand House Calls from Car Mechanics
YourMechanic aims to eliminate car dealer’s visits from your life. They send top mechanics at your home, office, or any other location where your car is parked. Their smart on demand mobile app connects you with a mechanic 7 days a week in a hassle free manner. Upon booking, the mechanic arrives at the scheduled time with all the required tools to service your car. All one needs to do is provide some space for the mechanic to perform his job.
Think of it as the Uber for car repair. You book a mechanic, and you are able to track him driving to your location on the day of the appointment. A text and email will be sent to you when the mechanic leaves for a visit. YourMechanic provides a detailed list of cost, parts, and services needed for the car to be serviced leaving no room for hidden surprises or last minute negotiation.
