Mobile Garage Services


The New Year is always a time when we tighten our belts and for most of us, we´re on the lookout for a bargain or two, but at the same time, we can´t ignore those essentials of everyday life.
Governments and companies are also tightening up so how refreshing it is to find that one company at least is looking out for the more vulnerable, and often neglected members of our society, who have served us their entire lives, and deserve more than anybody to be treated with the utmost respect, as well as deserving of a bargain or two.

We are talking about those mature members of society, the retired and living off their dwindling pensions, whilst prices all around them seem to be rocketing. That is why Mobile Garage Services are offering half price labour on all servicing work to pensioners, so that is one less aspect you need to worry about, the cost of maintaining the most valuable method of transport that you own.

Chris McCarthy, the owner of Mobile Garage Services, said “It is about time we looked after those who might be struggling on their pensions, and give them something back. That´s why I am prepared to slash my own fees by half, because pensioners deserve to be looked after and are my valued customers”.

We all agree that pensioners do deserve a little bit extra, but they are not the only ones who can benefit from the range of services and offers provided by Chris. Throughout the year, there will be deals available on just about every aspect of vehicle servicing, maintenance and repairs from brakes, to exhausts to diagnostic checks. So keep watching these pages and the Mobile Garage Servicing editorials for details of all offers monthly.

As a time served motor mechanic with over 30 years of experience, Chris has a fully functional work shop in Torrevieja where, with state of the art equipment, he can carry out any car or vehicle repairs, regular service, oil change or top up or anything else vehicle related, you are guaranteed a professional level of service.

Chris is fully time served so you can be assured that for all your car repairs and motoring needs your car is in very capable hands. Mobile Garage Services can even come to you to carry out those smaller jobs at your home or place of work, saving you both time and money on the Costa Blanca. You will find the car repair and mobile mechanic service second to none and prices extremely competitive. Be assured also of excellent customer service and attention to detail, all that you would expect from a reputable English speaking mobile mechanic.

Above all, don't take chances with your car, your wellbeing or your safety - trust the expert!

Would avoid this man.

5 County Court Judgements in the UK for poor service and unnecessary work. Has been kicked out of Checkatrade after yet another successful suit against him, so shouldn't be able to use the comments posted.

Left the UK to hide his tracks and has used threatening behaviour to pensioners, living in Spain, when further unnecessary work has been done and was questioned.

I doubt an English speaking mechanic is enough for of a reason for Brits to use him, as there are many trust worthy local mechanics out there.

I would implore you all to avoid him. A mechanic that can afford a Ferrari, well if that doesn't smack of overcharging I don't know what does.

Sorry this person that is slandering my name is a trouble maker.
I don't know who he is but what he is saying is not true about me.
He is trying to distroy my name and my business, as he is jealous of what i have built up for myself in my life and my Spain.
There are so many fake people in Spain they are so Jealous of other people in business.
They are the ones that are not honest and rip people off.
I have built up a good reputation since being in Spain and put right a lot of jobs right where people have been riped off.
