Intervals for car servicing are set out in your vehicle’s service manual. Depending on your make and model, servicing is usually required every 10-15,000km or 6 months. If you don’t travel far, you’ll need your car checked annually.

Mechanics are the most convenient way to get your car serviced because they come to you. And without the expense of workshop overheads, you’ll often pay less. The main downside is that on rare occasions, your mechanic may be unable to perform some less common services due to limited supplies and equipment at hand.

A mechanic can complete almost all the same mechanical repairs and maintenance jobs you’d get from a mechanic in a workshop. They can do anything from simple oil changes, through to log book servicing and roadworthy certificates. As long as they have the parts on hand and can do the work from a flat surface, they should be able to get the job done.

By requesting a mechanic near you on Airtasker, you’ll receive plenty of offers from qualified mechanics within minutes. This makes it easy to find the cheapest car mechanic near you that fits your budget.

The best way to find a skilled and reliable mechanic near you is to post your task on Airtasker. Outline what your car service or repair needs are, and you’ll start to hear from rated and reviewed mechanics near you within minutes.

What does a mechanic service usually include?

Mechanics are skilled in nearly all aspects of keeping your car maintained, serviced, and repaired, so it’s roadworthy and efficient to run. The exact process during your service will depend on how your mechanic prefers to work and the type of tasks they’re doing, like:

Minor service

This is the most basic engine service a mechanic provides, but it can make a huge difference in whether or not your car can operate efficiently. A minor service usually alternates with a major service, at around the 6-month mark. A mechanic near you can do minor services because your mechanic only needs a flat service to get the job done. They’ll unscrew the sump plug, allowing old oil to drain from your car. Then they’ll remove the old oil filter and replace with a new one that’s the right size for your vehicle. Your mechanic will dispose of your old filter and oil. They’ll also inspect other key components, like your battery, lights, air filters, and other fluids.

Log book servicing / major service

A major service or log book service involves a series of steps in line with your vehicle manufacturer’s service manual. It’ll include a combination of major and minor services, depending on the age of your car, or how many kilometres it’s travelled. Your service may include testing your lights, brakes, and battery. Then checking fluid levels, windscreen wipers, windows, mirrors, steering, suspension, radiator, fan belts, and tyre pressure. Finally, it may also include maintaining/replacing oil filters, hoses, belts, tyres, and wheel alignment. Your mechanic will finish off by stamping your logbook to record the services completed, which can help maintain your car’s resale value.

Roadworthy certificate or pink slip

A roadworthy certificate or pink slip is a specific vehicle check that’s conducted to ensure your car is in a roadworthy condition and can be operated safely. In some states, it’s required when selling a car or may be required each year to confirm your vehicle is safe for registration purposes. A mechanic will check off a list of predetermined items to verify that your car meets a minimum safety standard set out by your state government. They’ll focus on safety, checking things like tyres, brakes, steering, suspension, rust or damage, seatbelts, windows, lights, and your windscreen.

Major and minor repairs

Sometimes your car might need a little extra attention if you’ve had an accident, broken down, or your drive feels a bit different to normal. A car mechanic can perform minor and major repairs on most vehicles. They’ll use diagnostic equipment to locate the issue and decide on a course of action to get your car back on the road. If they don’t have the necessary spare parts, they may need to order them to finish off your repair and replace any faulty parts. Note that a mechanic service is usually limited to your car’s engine and electrics. It’s best to speak to a panel beater if you also have external body damage.
