Do you background check GarageTouch mechanics?

Yes. All of our mechanics have passed a thorough background check.

Am I supposed to tip the mechanic?

No. We pay our mechanics to do quality service every time. The biggest tip they can receive is your rating and feedback you provide on their profile.


How do I know the parts are of good quality?

The parts team at GarageTouch has gone through a rigorous filtering process to select the brands that are best suited for your car. Our parts catalog has a list of approved brands for each type of car and each type of part. We take pride in having a network of mechanics that uses high-quality parts. Whenever possible, the parts used are OE parts or aftermarket parts that meet or exceed OEM service specifications. When reviewing your quote, you will see the brands of the parts. Each part is clearly marked as OE, OE equivalent or aftermarket.

Do you ever use Remanufactured or used parts?

We don’t engage in the business of supplying or installing used parts. Only in very rare cases do the mechanics in our network ever use remanufactured parts -- usually in older cars where the parts manufacturers have discontinued the production of new parts. In those rare cases, the parts will be clearly marked as “remanufactured” on your quote.

Can I provide my own parts?

At this moment, we’re not allowing members to provide their own parts.

Where are the parts coming from?

We buy parts from several vendors -- from local vendors to wholesale suppliers across the nation, allowing you to receive high-quality parts at reasonable prices. Currently there are over 100 warehouses nationwide that ship parts directly to our mechanics. Whenever possible, we prefer OEM (original equipment manufacturer) or OE-equivalent parts, and we think they’re better for your car. We also offer high-quality aftermarket parts, often from the same manufacturer as the original parts.

Can you help me find parts from junkyards or auto-recyclers?

We apologize, but we don’t engage in the business of sourcing parts from junkyards or auto-recyclers. In most cases, we prefer not to install parts that are used or sourced from junkyards due to liability issues.


How can I get an estimate?

You can request an estimate online by selecting your location, car and services. In most cases, we will give you a price instantly. You will see the breakdown of labor fees and parts costs. There will never be any surprises or hidden costs. If an instant price is not available, we will send you a quote within 24 hours, usually sooner.

How is the price calculated?

All of our pricing is determined by our Fair Price Calculator, which is based on decades' worth of car repair information and the industry standard labor guide. Our parts pricing is based directly on our wholesalers' prices. Our online pricing system is fair and impartial; we give you a transparent price.

Sample fair price calculation:

Timing belt kit (belt, water pump, tensioner, pulleys) replacement for a 1995 Honda Accord in Northern California:

Average time to do the job: 4.2 hours

Mechanic's hourly rate: $80

Fixed labor fees: $80 x 4.2 = $336 (please note: we don’t charge for time. we charge a fixed fee whether the job takes less or more time)

Parts from wholesaler: $198.30

Your fair price: $80 x 4.2 (labor fee) + $198.30 (parts) = $534.30

What is your hourly rate?

We don’t charge for our services based on time. We give you a fair and transparent labor price quote, and you pay the same price whether it takes less or more time for the mechanic to complete the service. We calculate the price based on an estimated time and we apply a labor rate that varies by city -- it can be anywhere between $60 or more depending on where you live.

Is there an additional fee for the mechanic to come to my location?

No. We don’t charge a drive fee or convenience fee.

Is there a cancellation fee?

You may cancel your appointment for no charge at any time more than 24 hours prior to the scheduled start time of the appointment. If you cancel within 24 hours of the scheduled start time, GarageTouch will charge your credit card a $25 cancellation fee.


I don’t know what’s wrong with my car. What can I do?

You can book an appointment for a mechanic to come out to you and inspect your car. They will provide their inspection report and recommend services that your car needs.

How can I book an appointment?

You can book an appointment online by selecting your location, car and services. We’ll give you a price instantly. You will see the breakdown of labor fees and parts cost. To book an appointment, simply select a time that works for you and provide your location and payment information. We do not bill your card until the service is complete.

Why is a credit card required to book an appointment?

Your credit card is not billed until the mechanic has performed all the services. However, a valid credit card is required to hold your appointment and to verify that the appointment request is legitimate. This prevents people from making fictitious appointments and ensures that mechanics are not wasting their time driving around. We use bank-level security and all your data is passed over a secured 256-bit encrypted connection.

Can I choose a mechanic?

No, we assign you a mechanic who is qualified and available to work on your car at the time and location you requested.

How soon can I get a mechanic?

We have mechanics available 7 days a week from 5am to 11pm. Depending on the availability of parts, we are usually able to provide services the same day or next day, though the mechanics tend to get booked rather quickly.
