Miami Beach, FL, March 04, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- A dynamic new online platform that conveniently streamlines the often arduous process of obtaining an equitable estimate on vehicle repairs, Meechanic.com, is now live. Meechanic.com is intended to serve as a digital conduit between professional mechanics and consumers regarding repair and maintenance tasks that the vehicle owners wish to receive price quotations for. The service is entirely free for both parties, and Meechanic.com’s user-friendly interface makes both posting a repair job and making corresponding bids for it a simple and efficient process.
“Having one’s car break down is already a stressful enough experience, without having to wonder if you’re getting the best price possible for the repair as well,” commented Rasmar Constantin, one of the site’s co-founders. “Our goal is to help get people back on the road with the peace of mind that they resolved their problem quickly and at a fair price.”
Meechanic.com’s co-founder Miguel Blandon also emphasizes the considerable time-saving component that his site provides, a key factor in an age where consumers are increasingly accustomed to arranging for virtually any service in a hassle-free manner online.
“With everyone’s busy lifestyle, the main concern for someone when their vehicle breaks down is to get it resolved as quickly as possible. Most don’t have the time to call multiple repair shops and get a group of quotes,” commented Blandon. “This often leaves consumers taking the first or second estimate they get, without any sample size of other price estimates to compare it to.”
Although the site is designed for posting and bidding on regularly-scheduled maintenance tasks as well, Meechanic.com’s model is particularly beneficial for those whose sole mode of transportation is temporarily disabled. Meechanic.com allows these vehicle owners to easily gain access to price quotes from multiple mechanics within minutes, and a repair can often be arranged with the consumer’s chosen bid instantly.
“The entire Meechanic platform was designed with ease of use in mind, while still leveraging the latest innovations in web and mobile technologies,” commented lead developer Jeffrey Pina. “We designed this from the ground up so that the user’s level of experience and proficiency with digital technology is never an obstacle to successful use.”
Meechanic.com’s co-founders both agree that the site’s platform will be equally valuable to mobile mechanics and brick-and-mortar shops seeking to secure repair jobs, and will naturally create a corresponding advantage to the consumer. Mechanics bidding on any given job will be able to view competing bids, insuring that consumers will have the leverage of a competitive marketplace for their repair.
The site will feature a private messaging system for consumers and mechanics to interact and further coordinate repairs, and the vehicle owner’s contact information will only be released to the mechanic with the winning bid, insuring an efficient and confidential process.
