About YourMechanic

YourMechanic was founded in 2012 with the goal to make car repair and maintenance affordable, convenient, and transparent. Dealing with car problems is not only a time-consuming and frustrating experience, it is often expensive. Car owners often lack visibility regarding the quality of mechanics or fairness of price. At the same time, the mechanics who put in the hard work fixing cars make very little money at repair shops (less than 20% of what consumers pay), and rarely get the recognition they deserve. The company offer services at the convenience of your home or office, 7 days a week, and provide fair and transparent estimates upfront. YourMechanic is on a mission to build the most convenient and trusted car repair service. All the pricing is calculated by the Fair Price Calculator, which is based on industry standard labor times to perform services. This ensures that car owners are paying a fair price without the need to negotiate or shop around. The services provided by every mechanic in the platform comes with a 12-month or 12,000-mile guarantee and a $1MM liability policy.
