My Auto Shop, the “AirBnB for your car”, has just launched in Hamilton

In early January, a new service called the ‘UberEats for auto repairs‘ launched quietly in Auckland. As they gained momentum, things quickly hit a wall when COVID-19 arrived on our shores. Since the lockdown they have quickly grown into a network of over 100 workshops across New Zealand, and they have just arrived in Hamilton.

Finding a mechanic you can trust is difficult. When you visit one, you often find yourself asking questions that are nearly impossible to answer; “What part are they talking about?”, “Does my car really need it?”, “Should it cost that much?!”

My car shop
is working to address this issue and has now launched in Hamilton, making it easier to access the best MTA-approved mechanics in the Waikato. Andy Bowie, ex-Uber Exec and founder, says, “We’re like AirBnB for car repairs. You can see bespoke prices for your vehicle at the best local garages on a map. You can filter by proximity, specialty and rating to find the one that suits you best, then book online in minutes. In an industry that has notoriously lacked transparency and trust, this puts some control back in the hands of customers. “Customers now have the best mechanics in New Zealand at their fingertips.”

They work exclusively with MTA approved garages and already have a nationwide network of mechanics on board.

Hamilton customers can make the best choice for them.

When a customer enters their type of vehicle and the job they need on our website, we show them the best local shops in their area to complete their job. They can filter by rating, specialty and location to see prices for local workshops like Collins Automotive on Quentin Drive and SD European in Te Rapa.

“We worked closely with the MTA to open the service to Kiwis nationwide. We now have close to 10 Hamilton shops registered and approved, and we are working to build coverage of some of the gaps we have.

You can view all garage information on a profile page on the website, including rating, years of operation, number of employees, and garage specialties. Here are some of their Hamilton garages looking to help Waikato residents keep their cars running.

The My Auto Shop service offering currently includes various levels of automotive service, WoFs, pre-purchase inspections, wheel alignments and diagnostics, with tires, windshield repairs and more technical work in progress. road. “We want to be the first point of call for all things car maintenance, and we believe we have a fun, friendly, and customer-focused way of doing it that has always been lacking in the automotive industry. “.
