Signs Your Car is About to Die

Hello, my name is Roy. For many years, I drove a 1976 Ford estate car around Sydney. The car had belonged to my grandpa. It was passed down to me when I had just passed my driving test at the age of 18. That was in 1986 and the car was already in a pretty bad condition then. Fast forward to 2006 and I was now aged 38 and still driving the same car around. Sometimes the car wouldn't start, white smoke came out of the exhaust and the gearbox made a terrible sound. I did my best to patch it up, but eventually, I had to scrap the car and buy a new one. I decided to start a blog to encourage others to service their cars.

Why Tow Trucks Could Be a Thing of the Past


Have you noticed a gradual trend towards the elimination of the middleman? This societal change seems to be affecting every industry and is a result of new technology and a general shift in mindset. You may come across this new world order in most facets of your life eventually, but you may be able to start taking advantage of the benefits right now. For example, if you've just jumped into your car outside your home and found that it simply will not start, why don't you bypass the vehicle recovery service and call a mobile mechanic instead?

It's a Changing World

In the past, you would have had to make arrangements to tow the vehicle to the nearest mechanic, where they could get to work and fix the issue. After all, conventional thinking would dictate that this could only happen in a dedicated workshop, where all the tools and equipment are at hand. However, enterprising technicians understand that many tasks associated with a vehicle breakdown may be relatively straightforward and may not require access to equipment or tools that are largely immobile.

The New Approach

Enter the role of the mobile mechanic. This individual has a clear understanding of their trade and is able to travel in an appropriately-configured vehicle, with the tools and equipment that they are likely to need. So long as they have a sensible working environment when they arrive, it's likely that they can get the vehicle in question back onto the road in a short amount of time.

Efficiency on the Road

Most breakdowns of this type do indeed take place outside the home. Often, a garage is available, or if not, a driveway can be quickly converted to a mobile workshop using protective sheets and other equipment the mechanic has. Remember, the value here is in the experience of the individual rather than the facility back at base or the equipment therein. The expert will be able to take stock of the situation when they talk with you on the phone and have a reasonably good idea of what the issue is before they arrive.

Focusing on Your Problem

Certainly, you may feel sorry for the average tow truck driver, who may find that their services are not required as much in the future. However, you need to worry about your current situation, and the best way to approach your problem may be by contacting a mobile mechanic.
