Monday, April 4, the section “An idea for France” of 13 Hours presents a traveling mechanic in the North. He travels to his customers’ homes to repair their cars.
“They come to the house, they call us, they buy the parts”lists Lorenzo Altadonna, a restorer, client of an itinerant mechanic in the North. “I still earn a little better my living and then I’m completely free”, underlines Bruno Vermast, an itinerant mechanic for gomecano.com, who chose to intervene at home. If the working conditions are a little less comfortable, the mechanic travels with his mobile workshop, which costs less than the rent of a garage.
For customers, the price is attractive, since the bills are 20% to 30% cheaper than in a garage. “It’s a time saver, it allows me to work and at the same time, I do an on-site review”indicates Philippe Fournier, client of gomecano.com. In the countryside, other craftsmen such as hairdressers or opticians also come to their homes.
