What is Fixir?

Fixir grew out of a simple frustration we ran into – how can you tell if you’re paying too much for a car repair or maintenance? Our service allows drivers to find car workshops that are conveniently located, check out if your friends have been to the same workshop, and get quotes from several different workshops to make a more informed decision.

How do we know that car workshops on Fixir are trustworthy?

We have a comprehensive checklist to help us determine if a workshop is worthy to be on Fixir. In addition, we make it a point to interview every workshop owner and do background checks via online means and through previous customers.

That being said, we would also love to hear from all of you! Your feedback on workshops plays a big part in helping us keep only the best workshops on our app. Send your feedback to admin@fixir.co.

Why are the prices of the quotations different if it’s for the same job

The cost of a service consists of 4 key components: labour, price of car parts, overheads in the form of rental and additional services they may provide for e.g. driving your car from and to your house and settling insurance issues for you.

These costs result in quotations varying across different workshops. However, quotes provided to you are always from our trusted workshop partners who have been vetted via a stringent process.
