User Guide To Car Service and Mechanics

The great amount of motor vehicles in Australia means that there are also a great number of car repair services in the country. There countless automotive repair businesses in Australia's different States and Territories all working to provide the best service possible to repair and motor vehicles. Cars either used for urban use or off-road break down eventually and the services of motor mechanics are needed all the time.

Automotive repair shops come with a variety of services and specialties, and most automotive repair shops are run by motor mechanics.

The main role of the motor mechanic is to diagnose the problem of the vehicle accurately and quickly and provide the necessary services to fix it. They often quote the price of the repair to the customer before starting to work on the vehicle or after partial disassembly for inspection. Motor mechanics often use electrical equipment to determine the problem but they also use their senses. They may repair a specific part of the car or replace one or more assembly parts. Most motor mechanics are provided with sophisticated diagnostic computers for fixing the more sophisticated systems of today's vehicles. They may also be qualified to repair the electrical systems of the vehicle.

Automotive repair may also include certain modifications on the vehicle to improve its performance on both on the road and off road. These are usually requested by automobile enthusiasts. The rates of vehicle modification may vary depending on the kind of work to be done and the parts needed for the vehicle.

The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association is concerned with the manufacturing, re-manufacturing, wholesaling, distribution and retailing of all vehicle parts, accessories, tools, equipment and services on all vehicles.

The Motor Trades Association of Australia is a national organization that represents the repair, retail and service sector of the Australian automotive industry with over 100,000 retail motor trade businesses. Meanwhile, the Federation of Automotive Products Manufacturers represents manufacturers within the automotive products industry to all levels of government. It is considered by government officials as The Voice of the Automotive Components Industry and has 83 member companies and deals in both State and Federal government departments.

Motor mechanics may opt to teach automotive trade courses as long as the mechanic is qualified by the appropriate associations and government bodies.

How to choose the best automotive repair shop

  • Before you even need a repair shop, start searching for one. You make better decisions when you are not rushed or panicked.
  • Ask people you know for their recommendations based from their experience.
  • When you find a repair shop, start with small jobs. If you are satisfied, you may trust them with more complex repairs.
  • The policies of the automotive repair shop should always be posted or explained to your satisfaction.
  • The management of a good automotive repair shop is always willing to discuss the problem if you are not satisfied with the service.
  • Ask if the shop customarily handles your car make and model.
