I found Wrench Patrol on Google. Their website communicated their services well. The fact they are mobile is fantastic. I called them and the fellow was very pleasant and helpful. They also scheduled the appointment with the vehicle Owner (Seller) and I had the option of being present for the Inspection or not. Since the vehicle was at least 30 minutes away, I opted not to go but let the Mechanic handle it. Very convenient for both Buyer and Seller. The Report arrived via email shortly after the inspection and was very easy to read and thorough. Brake pads will need replaced within the next 6 months and a leaky inner cv boot was indicated. This was critical information in helping us with our purchase. I would definitely use and recommend their service again. Thank you guys.read more

Great service! I had 2 quotes from other garages. 1 said I needed a water pump and the other said I needed a new radiator. Both quotes were for $750. Instamek charged me $90 and told me I needed a $28 radiator cap. I've used them 3 times and will recommend them to anyone. Convenient, knowledgable staff, and way cheaper than any garage in town. Also available evenings and Sundays.

We are open from 8am - 6pm Monday to Saturday
