The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2014-11-04T23:35:17Z New Online Car Service Solution Helps Customers Drive A Hard Bargain 2014-11-04T23:35:17Z new-online-car-service-solution-helps-customers-drive-a-hard-bargain Online entrepreneur, Darren Cooke, has engineered a unique, new website – Strictly Service – to help drivers across Australia save time and money servicing their car.  The QLD-based former car mechanic and aircraft engineer has launched to fine-tune and speed up the process of finding a good-value car service. The national, easy-to-use website provides competitive quotes from multiple mechanics in the customer's local area, as well as informing them of the mechanic's availability and customer service rating. The online platform will also save mechanics time and allow them to bid for work, providing more opportunities for car service providers.  Mr Cooke said his own experience as a mechanic prompted him to look for a simple solution that met the needs of both customers and car repairers. “The web site to allows people to have a neutral place to go to to ensure they know how much their next car service will cost and how long it will take, before they book ,” he said. “Strictly Service puts you in the driver's seat of the servicing process - you pick the best quote and a time that suits you.”  Brisbane local, Kris Lyons, was one of the first drivers to book his car in for a service using the innovative, new website. “It was very easy to use - I just typed my details in and lots of mechanics came up," he said. “I could compare the ratings of customers and read reviews, which meant I wasn't going in blind, and wasn't going to get ripped off. Because the website compared quotes, I ended up saving $400.” is also a boon for mechanics, enabling them to accept vehicle bookings 24/7 in a fast and convenient way online, all the front-end service is completed by Strictly Service by taking orders, so mechanics don't miss out on potential customers, creating a nice flow of new qualified leads every day.    Owner of Mackay Tyrepower, Tim Roser, has already seen the advantages of his workshop using the platform: “Using Strictly Service gives us online exposure with no ongoing costs or fees. Due to the increase of work we've received already, we've been able to add another mechanic to our workshop.”  While similar price-comparing websites have been used in the real estate and travel industries, Strictly Service is the first website of its kind in the car mechanic industry and Mr Cooke has plans to expand the network globally.  “With a steady flow of customers already using the site, the goal is for Strictly Service to accelerate the car servicing process for everyone,” Mr Cooke said. “The goal has been to help drivers but also support the car service industry as a whole and that’s why Strictly Service is a win-win for all players.” Strictly Service charges no fees for customers to compare quotes. Car service providers pay Strictly Service a small service fee once they have finished a repair job they have gained through the site.  Drivers can visit to find out how much their next car service will cost, how long they will be without their vehicle from multiple trusted local mechanics, mechanics and car service providers are also invited to join the website.
