I read a post a while ago about a mechanic that will come to your house. Can anyone recommend someone?

why do you need a mechanic to come to your house ?
I ask because its pretty difficult to bring all necessary tools with you and
working out in this heat is just crazy.

if you just need some adjustment or something diagnosed , thats different.

It's nice to have the mechanic show up to your house at a prearranged time for several reasons. These guys have their shop on wheels so it's not a big deal having all the right tools with them. You don't have to spend time emptying your entire boat before you drop it off at a shop across town while it sits outside in the heat waiting to be worked on. It could be sitting in the elements for a week or more. A lot of the shops won't take appointments, you just drop your boat off and they call when it's done.

+1 for Ken

1) so they know where you live and what you have to steal :cool:

2) so when something isnt right with the finished repair they can avoid your calls. :blink:

3) so they can drop and spill oil all over your garage instead of theirs

so what your saying is you believe that the mobile techs are:

1. thieves

2. never stand behind their work

3. slobs


All this because you think it's hard to travel with a well stocked tool box.....

Very Interesting

Ken has never been in my house and I trust him anyway. He goes through great efforts to clean up beyond the way he found things. Why the paramoia, dude?
