Both of the mobile auto electricians and workshop auto electricians are equally qualified to do all automotive electrical work on today’s vehicles with their intricate electrical systems. They both have to attend school to receive their training and certification; they both have hands on training as well to gain experience. A mobile auto electrician can come to work in a workshop just as a workshop electrician can work out as a mobile auto mechanic because the only difference is the mode of their shop. The difference is that one works on the road from a work truck (mobile), while the other works at a workshop (stationary). Both use the same tools and equipment too to perform the repairs and services.
The mobile auto electrician drives a work truck or van and travels to where vehicles are experiencing a break down such as the side of the road, or to parking lots and driveways. Their work truck is a rolling mechanic electrical shop, containing all the equipment and tools needed to do vehicle repairs and services. An electrician always carries a computer diagnostics device to run a check on vehicles. Since today’s vehicles are more electrical thanks to the on board computer, they require skilled electricians to run repairs and services.
Mobile auto electricians will do emergency roadside services, offering help round the clock for stranded motorists. The largest bulk of automotive breakdowns on the highways are due to electrical failures. A qualified auto electrician will be able to repair stranded vehicles with ease. They will also be available for routine services that require electrical work like maintenance tune-ups. They have the parts to complete the jobs so the stranded vehicle is fixed and able to drive away with no problems. The only time the electrician will refer back to a workshop is if the vehicle needs to be lifted on a rack to get to the underside better.
The stationary workshop electricians obviously have a shop the customers have to come see to receive service. They offer all the same services and repair abilities as the mobile electrician with one addition of being able to place the vehicle on a lift rack and work on the underside. Whichever one you choose to deal with you should check out their qualifications and referrals to ensure the best service for your vehicle.
