Dear MOM on the GO: Let YourMechanic Help!


Dear Mom on the Go,

You are ONE mom. And you have MANY errands. Believe me. I know.

No one ever told you about the high-mileage, high-chaos life of a mom taxi driver. If you were to tally up the amount of time spent driving around from dance class, PTA meetings, clubs, ferrying the kids to practices, birthday parties, stopping by the grocery store, and not to mention car line, I think it’s pretty safe to say that the last errand you want to add to your to-do list is having to wait at the mechanic for car repairs or an oil change.

I’ve discovered a service to help take this item off of your to-do list. It’s called YourMechanic. You can skip taking your car into the shop, because YourMechanic makes house calls! That’s right, they come to YOU! I tried it out, and I want to share some highlights of my experience.

Life’s too short to spend it at the repair shop

First of all, you can enjoy convenient car repair and maintenance at your home or office. It’s as easy as 1-2-3, starting with an online appointment. 

YourMechanic1. HERE IS WHAT YOU’LL TELL YourMechanic

1. What you think is wrong (e.g., “my car is shaking” or “I need new brakes”) 
2. The year, make, and model of your car 
3. Your name, email address, phone number, and zip code



They provide a detailed list of the parts, services and costs needed to service your car.



Before scheduling an appointment, you can see your mechanic’s certifications, work history, ratings and reviews from other customers. Their mechanics are available 7 days a week from 7am to 9pm. Simply select a time that works for you and provide payment information to book your service.

My mechanic was Brandon. He was AMAZING. Brandon has 16 years experience and was as incredibly sweet and very thorough. You can request Brandon personally, or decide who is best for you based on your availability! Because they come to you, they will send you an email and a text reminding you of your appointment and when they’ll be there. 

Brandon changed the oil and filter, rotated the tires, and did a 50 point inspection. 

Seriously, the ease and comfort of having this appointment done while I was home was SO convenient. YourMechanic is offering a discount to Orlando Moms Blog Readers for $20 off! This deal is for new customers, and it runs through 12/31/2017. The code is: ORLANDO20

If you happen to request Brandon, tell him HI from me! 🙂
