I am not a mechanic, so how will I know what is wrong with my car?

Let’s consider a scenario. If you have ever had a break down in the past you would have most likely been asked over the phone by the recovery company, garage or mechanic-What the problem is and/or how it happened? That is often all a mechanic needs to be able to calculate what tools and equipment they need to fix your repair. Mechanics have vast experience of dealing with all kinds of repairs for all kinds of cars and more often than not they will have dealt with your repair issue before, and so know exactly what to do. For instance, if it is to do with window repair. You will simply select the category-window, then you will select the sub category as been one of either a chip, scratch, crack or broken window and describe what lead up to the window incident. The more information you provide, and the more accurate the information the more the mechanic is likely to quote on your repair job and give you an accurate estimation.

What kind of mechanics are there on Repair and Go?
