It used to be that most car owners drove down to their local mechanic every time they needed their vehicle repaired. Or they got the phone book out and called around asking for prices to compare. This could easily take half a day, and it still ended up being more expensive than agreed, because we might as well change the brake pads and the oil, while we’re taking things apart anyway. Today you can sit back with your laptop on your knee and send out your car repair needs over the internet, saving hundreds, maybe thousands of pounds on your repair bills. If you log onto Autobutler and create a job, you may be choosing between three quotes by the time dinner is ready.
