A couple of years ago, my car died in the middle of the night while at a friend’s house. The tow fees to my house and then to my mechanic ended up costing more than the alternator replacement itself. I still cringe to this day when I think about the final sum, and a service like YourMechanic.com would have made things a lot easier on my wallet and my sanity.

A sort of automotive paramedic, Yourmechanic.com will dispatch a mechanic to your location to perform most repairs. Everything from troubleshooting to a tune-up to things like alternator replacements and brake jobs are on offer, provided your car is in a parking lot or driveway (they won’t work on a vehicle if its street parked). The repairs are backed by a 12-month/12,000 mile warranty, and best of all, users can pick from a variety of mechanics based on their profiles and their listed credentials.

Most TTAC readers – or at least commenters – are likely to scoff at the notion of needing a mechanic to make house calls. But there are some of us out there *ahem* who tend to screw things up even worse as soon as they pick up a wrench. For those types of people, there’s definitely some value here. Not that I’d know or anything…
