Car Check Service

Car Check Cost

It depends on the type of car you drive and the auto repair shop you go to. Our mechanics are mobile, which means they don't have the overhead that repair shops have. They provide you convenience by coming to your home or office.

What is a car check?

A car check is performed on a vehicle preemptively, to ensure that your car's performance standards remain high. A car check is usually regularly scheduled according to vehicle manufacturer specification, and this allows your car to be completely maintained. When you get a car check done, it will also include the replacement of several important expendable parts, including spark plugs which are cleaned and replaced if necessary. Furthermore, the distributor cap and rotor are also replaced on older vehicles. Getting a car check up in regular intervals will increase the life of your vehicle.

Signs That You Need A Car Check

  • You had your last Car Check a long time ago
  • Your fuel efficiency has dropped considerably
  • You can hear clunking and squeaking noises from the engine
  • Your car is heating up excessively
  • How often to get a car check?

    Cars that have non-electronic ignitions need to get a car check after 15,000 to 20,000 km or every year, whichever comes first. Newer vehicles with electronic ignition and fuel injection systems can travel between 15,000 and 150,000 km before they need a car check. A good rule of thumb remains to get your car checked on a yearly basis, but you should check your car manufacturer's maintenance schedule to be certain.

    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.read more

    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.read more

    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.read more
