The big question today is "Is there really a difference in getting your oil changed with Upick over your regular oil change shop?" The answer is YES! There's actually a huge difference. Let's just take a look at a few ways that we are different. Some of these reasons are going to be obvious, while others may catch you by surprise. One myth that we would like to kill today is that "Upick can only change oil on American made vehicles." That's the biggest lie! As a matter of fact, our first customer owned an Audi. Upick services all types of vehicles. As long as it's a regular private passenger vehicle, we can service it. Now that we've killed a myth, let's get into these difference.
"Upick can only change oil on American made vehicles." That's the biggest lie!
Upick is mobile while regular oil change shops are stuck in one location
Everyone is so used to going to a shop to have their oil changed, but no one really wants to do that. That's exactly how Upick was birthed. We literally bring the entire oil change process to you. You don't have to go to a shop and sit there for an hour bored. You have 2 easy ways to book. You can book online or you can call and one of our friendly customer service representatives will assist you with setting up your appointment. The advantage of having your oil changed on your terms is that you can continue your day without the pause for an oil change. You can schedule an appointment while you're at work or while you're at home getting ready to go out. Either way, you don't have to go to a shop to have the same job done.

Upick's pricing is usually cheaper or the same price as oil change shops.
You read it right! Sometimes we are cheaper than the regular oil change shops. As a matter of fact, the higher the cylinder, the more the chance of us being cheaper than your regular go to shop. Why are we cheaper though? Does Upick use cheap oil and cheap filters? One of the main reasons that we are cheaper is because we don't have to pay for a physical location like other shops. Since we are mobile we are able to operate will little to no real estate space. We do have some office space, but it's not enough to change the pricing of our service. We actually enjoy being able to provide a cheaper price. We don't use cheap oil or cheap filters. We are very transparent and we actually offer 2 types of oil brands. We use Pennzoil and Mobil1. We use Fram, Pennzoil, and Service Champ filters. We use quality filters and quality oil. A lot of shops will advertise "Full Synthetic Oil change $29.99." Everyone skips over the small print that says (up to 5 quarts) A lot of the vehicles on the road today take 6-7 quarts of oil. Once you past that 5 quart threshold for the $29.99, each additional quart could be anywhere from $7-$10 for each additional quart. That's how a $29.99 oil change can quickly turn into a $60 oil change.

Upick doesn't up-sell on oil changes.
You ever went to a shop and just wanted to get your oil changed and that's it? Once you get there, they start telling you that you need this that and the other done. That's pretty annoying, I believe we can all agree. Upick doesn't up-sell. To be honest, Upick finds no interest in trying up-sell. Upick only does oil changes so there's nothing to up-sell. We like it this way. Our customers are never harassed with additional products or services. We understand that getting an oil change is the least favorite thing a person likes to do, so trying to up-sell on top of that service just doesn't make sense.
Our customers are never harassed with additional products or services.
The point of it all is that, Upick is better than going to the shop to have your oil changed. We bring the oil change to you. You can pick when and where your oil change happens. We use great oil and filter brands. You don't even have to be at the car when we service your oil change. As long as the hood is popped, and the emergency brake is on, we are able to take care of the oil change. The only way to find out if it's as easy as we say it is, is to try it out for yourself. Go ahead and book an appointment and test the theory yourself.
