Toms River, NJ (PRWEB) September 10, 2009
Mechanic-on-Duty, LLC, as part of its commitment to act as The Motorist's Advocate, has just released a survey of posted hourly labor rates for service repair facilities across the country. "Labor rates are just a part of how repair pricing is determined. The consumer doesn't have the right to demand a lower hourly labor rate, but the consumer does have a right to know how a repair facility's labor rate compares to that of local competitors," said Brian Schneider, National Sales Director for Mechanic-on-Duty, LLC.
The Mechanic-on-Duty national survey was conducted by AutoSource, LLC and was structured to differentiate between independently-owned repair facilities and repair facilities owned by new car dealerships. It is generally recognized that the latter have a slightly higher cost structure than independently-owned repair facilities. "In some states, we have labor rate data for as many as 1,500 postal zip codes. The more granular the information, the better we are able to serve the interests of our members," continued Schneider.
Since its founding in 2008, Mechanic-on-Duty has been the premier advocate for motorists when it comes to costly auto repairs. MOD provides motorists with unlimited access to its in-house team of professional auto repair specialists - real time access to real people with real knowledge - each member's own "Mechanic-on-Duty." MOD approaches its involvement in each car repair with the same three goals in mind: to ensure that the proper diagnostic approach is utilized; to determine if the vehicle is at the right type of repair facility given the nature of the repair and, ultimately, to "audit" the repair facility's cost to repair the vehicle.
New members have two options when joining MOD. They can pay their membership fee monthly for just $6.99, or $75.50 for annual membership. Annual members are also eligible to join a nationwide 24-Hour Emergency Roadside Assistance program for an additional cost of $49.95.
