Top 5 Reasons to Try ‘YourMechanic’


Ladies (and gentlemen), I introduce you to ‘YourMechanic‘ a service that has this mama over the moon! And why, you ask? Check out my top 5 reasons! Thanks to YourMechanic for the great service and sponsoring this post.

1.   They come to your house! I was more than 5,000 miles over my oil change when I finally bit the bullet and called Your Mechanic. With three kids and a full-time job, making it to a shop to get an oil change was nearly impossible.

2.       Scheduling couldn’t be much easier. You can schedule on your desktop or mobile at There were plenty of dates and times to fit our busy schedule and you get to see a bio of the mechanic who will service your car! 

3.       The mechanics are knowledgeable and efficient. My mechanic, Michael, grew up working on and around cars. He has vast experience and took the time to tell me what he was going to do. He was so knowledgeable, kind and efficient. He was in and out in an hour and I was one happy lady.

4.       They are a great company to work for with fair pay for their employees. In speaking with Michael on why he chooses to work with YourMechanic, he told me what a great company they are. How he is paid a fair and equitable wage. How he can choose his own schedule. Mechanics have appointments too, and working for this company allows him to achieve a nice work/life balance. That is something I can truly get behind!

5.       Again, they come to your house! One of the hardest things about a conventional shop is getting there and knowing you are going to sit for 1-2 hours while your car is serviced. This mama needs all the time she can get and what an awesome feeling to know I could do my Saturday morning chores around the house while my car was (FINALLY!) being serviced. I tell you, I felt like Wonder Woman J I’m going to say it – this was life-changing!

local mechanicYourMechanic is about $15-20 more than a regular oil change and tire rotation. However, the convenience saves me TIME and I’ll gladly pay a little bit more to feel accomplished. Another WIN is that YourMechanic services are backed by a 12-month, 12,000-mile warranty. Convenience and peace of mind? Sign me up!

Jessica is a native of Cleveland, OH (well, a small town 30-minutes outside of CLE, Perry, have you heard of it?!) who moved with her family of five to Columbus in 2014 on a giant leap of faith. Columbus has not disappointed from Day One. She is mom to three great kids, Sadie (7), Colin (5) and Elise (3). Somehow the kids ended up each being 26-months apart, something this not-so-mathematically inclined mama definitely did not plan! She’s been married to her husband Brian for ten years and credits him for (mostly) keeping her crazy in check. Her work is one of her passions – she works media relations in the field of organ, eye and tissue donation. Her job brings her great pride and joy and she actually looks forward going into work every single day. Her other passion is advocating for stage four breast cancer research. Jessica lost her mom in 2013, after a two-year, harrowing road with cancer. She tries to raise awareness for the spread of breast cancer and to educate others on supporting causes that fund stage four research to save lives. Jessica recently won her first Blue Ribbon at the Ohio State Fair for “Button Price” a button art (yes, that’s a thing) rendition of Prince (the singer and purple legend), loves Beyoncé, will never turn down the opportunity of a mid-Saturday nap and is excited to continue exploring this great city we live in!
