A pressure-free way to compare mechanics

Blinker takes the stress out of your repairs in a few unique ways.

No-pressure inspection

Take your car in for a thorough inspection and if needed, a quote for any needed repairs. Our system allows other shop to submit comparable quotes, removing unnecessary buying pressure.


Effortlessly compare quotes

Compare real estimates side-by-side, without making a phone call. Compare according to things like warranty, customer ratings, price, or repair time.


Built-in driver protection

Each service performed through Blinker is backed with Buyer Protection and a free "second opinion". You convey your satisfaction simply and confidentially with a detailed review.


Hear what car owners have to say...

"Its always felt a bit intimidating going into a mechanic... I can never really tell if I'm being dealt with fairly. I'd love a service that could provide some transparency into the process of getting my car fixed. I really just want peace of mind."

"I think I've put off fixing my car for at least a year, just because it's so inconvenient. It's also a hassle to call around for quotes, since all the shops say I have to bring it in first. The ability to easily see if I'm getting a fair price and compare quotes side-by-side is really cool."

"If I'm going to get my car fixed, I'm the kind of girl that researches a ton beforehand. Review sites are useful, but I'm always wondering if the review is actually real. The verified reviews here seem to fix all that."
