Automiles is a family run Mobile mechanics business giving a reliable service with
honest prices. We are able to service and repair most makes and models of car, van
and 4x4, normally at your home or work address although we do offer a collection
and delivery service for MOT's and some repairs. We pride ourselves on caring for
our customers as well as for their cars.
We are based in Horley, Surrey (near Crawley, West Sussex) and offer a highly competitive
friendly service without the price tag of local garages.
You are able to speak directly with the mechanic rather than always going through
a middleman. This allows you to explain the problem or service you require whilst
they can ask you any relevant information that he may need to know. A technician
is able to travel to any work or home location within a 25-mile radius of Gatwick
Airport (Sussex) which covers as far as parts of Kent, Surrey, Sussex. We are more
than happy to quote for any work outside of this area, although we will add a small
charge to cover the additional mileage. In most cases we are still significantly
cheaper than most garages!
Our mobile mechanics are prepared for all weathers and they are able to work in
all weather conditions as portable shelter is carried to every job, protecting both
your vehicle and themselves! If you do not have anywhere suitable for a mechanic
to work, we are able to offer a collection and delivery service in certain circumstances
(i.e. the vehicle must be roadworthy and not require towing).
You no longer need to leave your car at the Garage all day!!! We provide a comprehensive
range of services for all makes and models of car and van and can meet your mechanical
needs in the convenience of your own home or place of work (please obtain permission
from your employer or landowner where you are working for this service). When your
car or van is vital for your work, we will do our best to prioritise any work required
to make sure your vehicle is not off the road longer than absolutely necessary.
All work carried out by experienced fully qualified and insured technicians and
most parts carry a minimum guarantee of 12 months (excludes normal wear and tear).
We are able to cater for minor or major repairs, from simply repairing a horn that
doesn't work, to full engine replacement and we can either use manufacturers own
parts or patent parts. It's your choice but we are always happy to quote for both
options and let you decide. If you really wanted to treat yourself we could fit
you a new radio or can even arrange for a Full valet to be carried out!
We are able to offer Air-conditioning servicing, repairs and re-gassing although
we may need to take the car away for a few hours for this service as the equipment
required is not portable.
Modern cars today are more electronic than ever before and simple things can end
up being expensive as they require specialist diagnostic equipment
to read codes
and put out the warning lights that may come up on your dashboard.

to you with our own specialist diagnostic machine, and so saving you valuable time
and money by having the work done at your home address without losing your car for
the day while it is at the garage!
Most cars need servicing every 10,000 miles or 12 months but some as often as every
6 months. In addition to this, there are other items such as a Cam belts and tensioners

book to maintain the service history of the vehicle. Check out our servicing page

manufacturer's recommendations but also offer two levels of service designed for
vehicles outside of a warranty period. A full service will ensure that any fluids
are changed or topped up and any belts are changed according to the manufacturer's

What have our customers got to say about us?
I live in the Horley
(Surrey), my tax was up for renewal with my mot expiring. Like most people I live
a very busy life. I work in East Grinstead (West Sussex), it was impossible for
me to get my car serviced at a convenient time for me. I searched for ‘Horley
car service and repair’ in Google and came across Automiles, I thought what
have I got to lose. I gave them a ring and spoke to a very friendly professional
lady on the phone and within a few minutes I had explained the problems I was having
and we agreed a convenient time for a mobile mechanic to come to my house for a
full service. The service was carried out and a pre MOT check done at the same time.
The next day I travelled to work as usual and the
mechanic came and collected my car for its MOT. It was returned back to the
car park with its new MOT certificate ready for me to drive home from work! I was
extremely happy with the work that was done at an affordable price. I would recommend
Automiles mobile mechanics to anyone.
Crawley West Sussex
I am just mailing you to let you know how happy I was with your services. It was
a relief to find a company that worked around my schedule not their own. I am a
teacher and find it near impossible to get to work without a car so when I found
out that a mobile mechanic could visit my home in the evening it was ideal. I had
a problem with an engine management light that the manual had told me to consult
the dealership. I knew from previous work that this would be expensive! I was happy
to find that after diagnosing the problem with a computerized code reader the mechanic
suggested that I just top up the oil as this has been known to affect the sensors
for the management lights. I was pleased to find out that this solved my problem
at no cost to myself. What a great service! A trustworthy company that doesn’t
overcharge or invent work that needs doing! Thankyou.
