Vancouver is talking. Vancouver needs to know .

Lynda Steele

Trevor and Iain are Vancouverites aiming to make the mechanic experience a lot more transparent, convenient and green. During their MBA studies at Queen’s and Cornell, they discovered that mobile mechanic services are extremely popular in Australia and the UK, but there’s nothing quite like it here.

They started by importing a fleet of mini 1- tonne trucks that are unique in Canada. They hired top local talent. They designed their business to breathe the mountain air, move forward with youthful steps and welcome diversity. Then they opened up shop in Burnaby.

A new business in Metro Vancouver is offering time-crunched motorists a way to get their vehicles serviced without taking your car into the garage. Instead of driving to the nearest service station and leaving your vehicle for the day, the mechanic comes to you.

Burnaby, BC: Oct. 7, 2013 – With the launch of its unique mobile mechanic fleet, Vancouver-based WrenchPatrol brings a brand new concept to drivers in the lower mainland: they deliver! WrenchPatrol’s crew of red-seal certified auto mechanics drive to customers’ locations and perform warrantied repairs and maintenance at their home or work. The start-up company’s focus is on convenience, transparency & environmental responsibility. Co-founders Iain Rogers and Trevor Burgess wanted to create a business model custom fit to the West Coast lifestyle: work hard and enjoy your leisure time. “The mechanic comes to you. I think most people can imagine how that would improve your work day or family time,” said WrenchPatrol co-founder Iain Rogers, an avid white-water Kayaker & instructor. “Like many Vancouverites, I work hard during the day. If I can get a reliable repair – or even just an oil change – without wasting half a day out of the office, I can head directly to the Capilano River for a paddle after work.”
