Here's what our customers say about us
This is the first time I have used this service. instaMek was amazing. They were on site within 2 hours of contacting them. Mohammed was the mechanic sent out. Unfortunately since I live 3000km from Vancouver I was not able to be on site. Mohammed took care of that, he called me before and after so he could answer any of my questions. He also went above and beyond as I sent him texts all day asking questions after he was finished.. Thx again Mo you are the best, why cant all mechanics be this good.......Also the inspection sheet they send you when they are done is A1.......

Mohammed was very knowledgeable and thorough with his inspection of my vehicle. He explained everything he was doing along the way and answered any questions I had. I was very pleased with his service.

Even though his diagnostics (insurance inspection) may result in loss on the sale of my vehicle, the Mek, Alexey is a gentle, caring, professional giant. He's conversational, and there's something about his demeanor that's comforting. Great customer service.

I've been using instamek for both diagnostic and maintenance and the instamek mechanic Mohamed has been extremely helpful, he's the best mechanic. He was able to explain any issues i was concerned with and I'm really happy to have him service my car. I recommend him to anyone.

Before buying my car I took it to those guys and they did a full inspection on it, they were very professional and absolutely liked their service.

I wanted to get a pre-purchase inspection of a vehicle I was interested in purchasing from a private seller on Craigslist. I was able to book an appointment on the same day I called, which was very convenient. The mechanic who came out, Waheed, was very professional and friendly. He did an extremely thorough inspection of the car and clearly explained what some of the issues that he was seeing were as he went. You get a very detailed report as a result of the inspection which allowed me to negotiate the offering price down quite significantly. It was definitely worth it and I would recommend this service to anyone looking to buy a used car. I should note that the pre-purchase inspection typically includes a driving segment, but the mechanic cannot do it if the car is not insured (for obvious reasons). I didn't realize this when I booked over the phone, and I was comfortable with just a visual inspection given the age/condition of the car in question, but if you are particularly worried about the car's transmission or steering I would make sure it is insured so that the mechanic can come and do this part of the inspection.

After buying a used car on the spot, I realized that I needed to get an inspection done in order to insure it! So, I went on Google and searched for "mobile mechanic". Thankfully, I found InstaMek. I emailed in the late morning and a certified mechanic (or "Mek") showed up in the mid afternoon! Mek Kenroy was so friendly yet professional. He went about the inspection quickly and efficiently and provided the necessary paperwork for me to obtain my insurance. I also learned that they can do alot of basic maintenance and repairs right on your driveway. The pricing was more than reasonable, especially after I signed up for the Prime membership. Thank you InstaMek! I will be using your service in the future to take care of my vehicles.

Jack (the Instamek mechanic) called me back when I requested after viewing the inspection report. He provided some really great information and answered the questions that I had. I'd like to thank him for his thorough and in depth inspection as this has helped me understand the condition of the minivan in question. He was also very cordial and easy to speak with. I give him 5 stars. Thank you Instamek for all your help with my pre-purchase inspection.On another note, I noticed that a few Google reviews are negative. I would advise that it is likely that a lot of those reviews were for older cars that might not be in good condition. What you have to remember is that they are primarily an inspection service. They are trying to demonstrate the current condition of the vehicle. If they were to miss something, that might expose the buyer to unforeseen repair expenses. So, of course they are going to proceed on the side of caution by listing everything they can see and test. And, they cannot look inside the engine either. So, some items might need to further diagnosed by a physical repair shop or monitored for follow-up later. They are not able to do an exhaustive review given their fee of approximately $200, their limited time associated with that fee, and being mobile with limited equipment. I do not think it is reasonable to expect them, or any other auto inspection service, to ascertain the location of an oil leak either. A lot more time would be needed to diagnosis this. It is even difficult for a physical shop to determine the exact location of an oil leak. Sometimes, it is easy to determine while other times it is difficult if there is a lot of oil caked on an engine. Sometimes an engine will have be cleaned and then monitor where a leak occurs over a certain duration. So I think that a lot of the negative comments are not justified nor are they reasonable. I just thought that I would share my opinion and perspective for future users of the inspection service.

Battery died and had no way of getting it to a shop to get replaced. These guys came to my house within 5 hours of calling and did a diagnostic to make sure it was actually the battery . The tech showed me what the problem was and explained it to me in terms I could understand . When he told me the battery had to be replaced and didn’t even mention that they sell them. I asked if he could do it and he said yes - Gave me a great price and had it running within an hour of arriving . He also did a 30 point Inspection. These guys are professional, friendly and do it all. Will be my go-to for Mobil mechanic needs.

Mek Waheed and his mechanic partner were excellent. Very friendly, and much more thorough than my last inspection, which was at a shop with a lift! They spent time with me afterwards explaining things in detail. Would definitely recommend this service.

I had a great experience getting a pre-purchase inspection for the vehicle I was looking into buying. It was easy to book an appointment, and the car was inspected and reported on thoroughly. I got my report within an hour of the inspection, and was able to contact and communicate with someone working at instaMek quickly to answer a questions I had.All in all, it was an awesome experience and I’ll definitely use their services in the future.

So happy we discovered this company! I was scared to drive my car to the shop after hearing weird noises and within 2 days they ran the diagnostic and replaced by rotors and brake pads. And since they don’t have the overhead of a normal shop it came out to way less than we feared! Signed up for their membership program which is a great deal too. Thanks again Jack and Instamek, I’ll be recommending you to everyone!!

Very thorough inspection of my vehicle! The mechanic was great.

Easy to set up an inspection at the location you need. Had a pre-purchase inspection for a used vehicle done by them and was very happy with their customer service and the results they gave me. Very thorough inspection that made me confident I was buying the right car!

Needed a Pre-Purchase inspection done on a vehicle in somewhat short notice and with a hesitation from the small dealer to have us tie up one of their plates in taking the car to a brick and motor service location for a day. Enter Instamek.Able to make all the arrangement required including identifying who to contact at dealership. Got a confirmation email with the time window and let dealer know. Mek arrived on time and did what they needed to do with no muss and no fuss. Got the report an hour later with images of things to note from their inspection and a complete list of pass, monitor, and required things in regards to the vehicle.everything was coordinated by email and text and it did not require me to be onsite which was nice as schedule didn't permit.All in all... a very good experience and would HIGHLY recommend. You do pay a bit more for the convenience but it was worth it in this case.

I needed a pre-purchase vehicle inspection done really quick -- seller really wanted to get the car off his hands, and I wanted the car. So I called Instamek and they did a same-day inspection for me. I was surprised at how detailed the report was and how many things they actually looked at.Thank you for the great service.

Had a great experience with instaMek - they changed my brakes at my house after doing an inspection for me. It was easy and the mechanic was nice

I needed to have an inspection done on a car for insurance purposes. I googled local mechanic services to get quotes when I saw the ad for InstaMek. Uzair answered me right away and I had a technician booked within minutes. Having a mobile mechanic come to me saved me a lot of time and money. My tech (Alexey) was very knowledgeable, very friendly, and worked quite quickly. He was able to find a few issues that I hadn't suspected, and needed repair. Once those things are repaired, he confirmed that the car would be solid, safe and reliable. Now, I am confident in this car. I will definitely call on InstaMek again in the future.

I found instaMek on google and decided to try it. What a GREAT experience!I needed a safety inspection asap and the tech came to my home, at my convenience and it took less than an hour. Taking a vehicle to an auto shop can be intimidating, waste a lot of time and create a lot of stress being overcharged with unnecessary repairs etc. After this experience I would not hesitate to use instaMek in the future.

02:46 13 Jul 19
I was sincerly pleased with the service from InstaMek. My mechanic Doug was right on time and was at work within minutes. He had the inspection done in no time and went over the results in great detail. All in all I had a great experience and will recommend this company to everyone i know.

Prompt, quick and professional. I had a inspection done for insurance and was provided advice and knowledge beyond what the inspections required!
20:24 28 Jun 19
I had them come out to do a insurance inspection on a vehicle we bought. The gentleman that came out was polite and professional, his name was Lexi, he even shook my hand. I was very pleased with their customer service and I would definitely have them come out again for any repairs on my vehicles in the future. I never even knew a mobile service like this existed, doesn't get any more convenient than that! So I'm very glad that I found them online :)
