Don’t Let Car Troubles Slow You Down in Vegas

In one block on the Vegas Strip you can find a world-famous diva performing, a rock-star chef’s new restaurant, trendy dance clubs, and designer stores. In some cases, you can access them all without even going outside. Needless to say, with all the immediate indulgences in Las Vegas, auto repair might be the last thing on your itinerary. Even locals can be too busy with the daily grind. Here are some ways to give your car what it needs without sacrificing your own needs.

Mobile Mechanics

If you’re stranded on the outskirts of Las Vegas, mobile mechanics can travel to you—whether your car is in the driveway, the office parking lot, or stalled on the side of the road. Typically, they’ll arrive in a fully loaded truck with all the equipment necessary to inspect, diagnose, and repair the problem. While there are certain repairs that require the service bays and more advanced machinery of the garage, mobile technicians offer more services than you may think, including oil changes, parts replacements, cooling system repairs, and brake replacement or repairs.

Express Lube and Quick Oil Changes

Express lube facilities make car care quick, affordable, and convenient. Drivers can pull in without an appointment, and technicians will change the oil, though other more in-depth services, like close inspections and diagnostics, may not be offered at quick lube spots. Then there are quick oil changes like those offered at Busy Buggy. There, ASE-certified technicians perform quick oil changes complete with 20-point inspections and fluid refills; they also offer one-hour brake service and many other repairs while you wait.

Emergency Services

As accessible as everything is in Vegas, the surrounding desert can be sparse and empty. It’s not an ideal place to experience car troubles, but companies have prepared for that with fuel delivery services and other mobile assistance. For instance, if flying debris cracks your windshield and threatens your visibility, trained technicians will travel to your location and fix or replace the glass on the spot so you don’t have to call a tow.
