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.

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.

My truck wouldn't start, and I knew it wasn't the battery. Booked an appointment online and the mechanic showed up quickly. He diagnosed the problem quickly and correctly, gave a fair quote right on the spot and explained everything. My starter was replaced and I'm back in business. I can't recommend highly enough. Also, definitely go for Instamek PRIME. It got me a good discount on my repair and now I get maintenance service calls, and roadside assistance.

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.
