Simplifying Vehicle Maintenace

Connecting vehicle owners with Mechanics

About MechanicBuddy

MechanicBuddy was conceived with a very simple idea. Who can service my car in my area and how much will it cost me? Launched in February 2015, MechanicBuddy links South African car owners with great local garages, mobile mechanics and dealerships. Currently we have a total of 1888 mechanics and garages listed on the website.

What we offer the vehicle owner

We provide a quick and simple way to find a mechanic, workshop, service centre or part without having to ring around a series of garages. Obtain a detailed estimate of the service or part you require by completing your information on our Get a Quote page. Local relevant mechanics will respond with a quote directly to your inbox. Eliminate the chance of being overcharged for services by comparing quotes.

Reduce the risk of being taken for a ride. With detailed feedback from our users, you can make an informed decision regarding price, quality and driving distance.
