Jeep Battery replaced and fitted
Perfect Service from knowledgeable Mechanics - What a great service - they came on time and did the job extremely well - left my car clean and functioning perfectly - Highly recommend Lube mobile.
Lube mobile [Name Removed] poor effort sorry its taken so long to notice thought you might of completed your guys quote
Can I just say what a rip off of a company I got quoted 800 dollars to replace my engine mounts on a 2014 Holden commodore now I had a company to do it for 400 and that was with genuine Holden parts when [Name Removed]
This is what they quote but don't complete job
Great quick friendly service
Would happily use Lube Mobile again - on time, on budget and friendly. Booking online was easy and convenient. Mechanics arrived at the agreed time, provided a Weitem quote before commencing work and left me a happy customer.
This is Perfect. Easy and convenient
This is the type of service I wanted. You book the date and time and the mechanic arrives at your door and complete the work. Harry was amazing. He did the service for my car and explained me what I need for my Car. Happy with the service and I recommend using them and I will be using them for future car service and repairs.
Total rip off! Ridiculous additional fees - Do not recommend
I have serviced my car once with lube mobile and every time a $250 service turns into a $2000-$3000 job!! Absolutely annoyed!
Needed a service - turned into $2000 job with “labour and parts reduced”
Apparently everything was included in this service, checked all main components - gearbox, transmission etc
To find myself 2 months later with a completely shredded clutch and a blow synchroniser in my manual gearbox
I was charged another $2800!! 2 months after this full service where I was told I was being looked after - I was annoyed and got my car back and told them I would take my gearbox elsewhere to get fixed ...I went to get my gearbox fixed and they quoted me $1500 cheaper then lube mobile and even after my clutch was done by lube mobile I asked them how much they would charge for a clutch and they said $2000. Save your money!! Look around and find the right mechanic for you!
Great Same Day Service
I picked up this lovely little 'gift' on the way home from dropping my husband off at work at 5am. I was lucky to get home, but needed the tyre replaced ASAP. I was able to get an appointment for same day service between 12-2, which was *just* in time to be able to pick my kid up from school and then also collect my partner from work.
Liam did a wonderful job, he showed up within the allotted appointment time. He was done with the job with plenty of time to ease the anxiety I'd had all morning about whether or not I'd be able to pick my partn...er up, or if we'd need to figure out another way for him to get home. This is the second time I've used Lube Mobile and both experiences have been great. Both guys were friendly, fast, and did an awesome job. I've got no complaints and will happily use Lube Mobile again in future.
OMG.....FINALLY, an organisation that delivers on what they promise. After receiving mulitiple outrages quotes to repair timing chains on my VE Commodore, I decided to ring Lube Mobile as a last resort!!
Let me just say, I now won't be using anyone but them again. This company is professional, punctual, honest and above all, realistic with the quotes for repair.
After receiving the detailed quote to repair my timing chains, I arranged to have the vehicle towed to the Lube Mobile workshop, where the job was completed in a single day. These guys...
Would never recommend Lube Mobile
My daughter has a Jeep Cherokee and works full time so thought that getting Lube Mobile out to our home to service her car on a Saturday was an excellent idea. At first she was very pleased with Jeffrey as he explained the service and what he'd done to the car to her. He charged her $745 for the service. Her Jeep had had a small oil leak since purchase and every mechanic who had serviced the car had said that it was annoying but not worth pulling the engine apart to find the source. Jeff, however, said that he could fix the leak and quoted $180...0 to do so. After much consideration, my daughter decided that it would be nice to not have the leak and that if she invested that money then she could keep the car for many more years. Jeff said he would have the car for three days. Well, the car needed a special Jeep tool which could only be hired from Melbourne and then there were many delays. After 2 weeks and many phone calls, my daughter got her Jeep back but the price had escalated to $3091.91! She was upset that the quote had blown out so much but thought that as the leak was fixed, maybe she could justify it. We put cardboard under her car overnight just to check that the leak was indeed fixed. The next morning, the cardboard had many drops of oil on it! We rang Jeff who came to look at the car a week later at first denying there would be a leak and then accepting that infact the leak was still there. He then explained to her that he worked down from the engine to fix the leaks and this new leak must be below where he had fixed. He said it must be the Rear Main Seal and that he would order her one and then fix the leak. My daughter was distraught so I called lube mobile and explained this scenario. The girl on the phone said she would get Jeff's manager to call my back within 15 minutes. Jeff called me within 15 minutes and explained the rear main seal story again, and that he could fix it but it would cost more money. He then looked around Australia trying to track down a rear main seal for a Jeep and rang back a week and a half later to tell her couldn't locate one and he therefore couldn't fix her leak. I wish we had never made the call to Lube Mobile as it has only caused anxiety and cost a lot of money, time and angst. She now has a car with a leak that is worse than before he touched it.
Trusted Mechanic, Quality Workmanship, Reliable Service!!
Gavin services all our family’s cars and we have always been impressed with Gavin’s high-quality workmanship, reliable service, honesty and he always gives you the best value for money!! Gavin genuinely cares for your car and he always soughts the best price for the Customer. Gavin is very trustworthy and transparent, he offers a detailed explanation of what the service involves and shows you the cost breakdown before performing works. Gavin is a car-whisperer, he really has been a God-send for our cars, as we take great pride in our vehicles a...nd it has been so difficult to trust any mechanic, but we have regained that trust in Gavin!! Thank you, Gavin, for always doing a marvellous job, we are very appreciative and we highly recommend you and your services to all!! I recently had a couple of tyres installed on my car by Aaron, he was very prompt and efficient, he had both tyres installed in less than half an hour and did a great job! I have recommended your services to family and friends! Both, Gavin and Aaron, have such friendly personalities and we are always greeted with a lovely big smile and a firm handshake, always a positive experience!

Mechanic was fantastic, explained everything and helped me understand the work that needed to be done. Felt at ease and that my car was in good hands. Would definitely recommend.
I have the worst experience ever had. My car is still not running. But they took my money for nothing! The mechanic said he will call me on Monday but no call.
Quick and affordable
Taylor was exceptional, arrived within 15 minutes of booking. Saved us $1000 (as quoted by other mechanic). Would recommend strongly and will be first choice to call if needed again.
Above and beyond.
Ted and his apprentice Peter were punctual, professional and efficient. I was given a written quote, shown the worn parts that needed replacing and had things explained in a way that was easy to understand without being condescending. They got right into fixing the car and did a professional job.
I have arthritis and partial use of my hands. Ted went above and beyond and removed the seized up screws from my vacuum cleaner and replaced the battery for me. He also fixed a sharp protruding bracket and piece of metal on the front of my car which is awaiting a repair.
Great company, great employees, highly recommend them.

You think that they would want to know why
I left a damming review of LubeMobil on their feedback page. You think that they would want to know why. But no, they are only interested in sales. Twice bitten now.
I only had a minor problem, one headlight bulb was out, and I probably ended up paying more than if I had taken it to my regular mechanic but the convenience was the best feature. I didn't want to leave my car for hours at the garage or have to sit there and wait, so it suited me to have Lube mobile come to me. I liked being able to book on line. They called me 15 minutes prior to say they were on their way. They arrived within the time frame, professional and quick and even found that my indicators weren't working. I liked that they told me wh...at the price would be first and i could pay by card. This is a great service especially in a pandemic when I don't want to leave the house. Will use again and highly recommend. I note they are offering $50 off next service if we write a review, but that didn't motivate me to write, nor did it say whether review had to be positive. I was pleased with the service and I am reviewing that because it's hard to say positive things, most people only review when something bad happens.
Questions & Answers
Hey how come everyone here with a negative experience has lots of specifics but all the positive ones are generic stuff from like Wayne in Batemans bay who just randomly decides to post a review about how good Lubemobile is? Surely you're better off actually addressing how bad you are rather than faking a few 5 stars after every genuinely horrible one?
I for one had a positive experience and I suppose when that happens there aren’t many specific details to share. While I’m not naive in believing all positive reviews are always legit, I’m not sure what detail you would like those with positive experiences to go into? Happy to share if you have a question though!
I booked in for fuel pump replacement, gave details of the car and everything, got the quote of $825,next day mechanic turn up and say we do not have the same fuel pump but have the other one cost about $1500 . And charge me $140 for just turning up to say that.
My concern is if you have the details, have the vin number. Why cant you tell the changes of price over the phone so we can make up our mind the same time. Why should you send the mechanic to say that..
hi sunny they ,should stick to their quote of $825.00 , they should not charge you that $140.00 ,looks to me office error , they should of known this ,and they should of asked the mechanics who do the jobs again sort it out with their office ,also get another quote from another mobile mechanic and if you have time ,look on line and buy the part/part with kits yourself and ask them to do labour only ,that's your call ,I find them easy to get along with ,again talk to their office staff/manager/supervisor ,I have no issues with them ,I give them 10 out of 10 with efficiency , on time ,value for money, do not rip you off as a lot off competition out their ,reliable, neatness ,polite ,been around awhile ,I have used them for about on and off 12 years ,I hope this helps you sunny ,regards steven,tuesday 5/may/2020, 11.00 am ,morning
