Mobile aircon engineers
I'm looking to regas the aircon. Phoned up two places:
1. The general garage that provides an aircon maintenance. Spoke to nice girl on phone who had no information on what they do - expect that 'leave the car here and we will regas it for £75+vat. Takes two hours so don't wait around'. My additional insecurity is getting the usual phone call about some problem they claim to have found that you never knew existed...
2. The mobile aircon engineer. Spoke to hime last night. He will service the airconditioning system, lubricate it, recharge the coolant. He can come at home at almost any time and charges £90+vat. As I spoke to the actual individual, he gave a good impression of being a specialist.
I am inclined to use the mobile chap even though he is dearer. My question is, do mobile engineers provide a good service? Is there any specialist equipment or attention needed that the mobile chap may not have?
(PS: The aircon system in my car works fine as far as I know - just could be a little cooler)
