    you can use the estimate tab on this website to get some
    pricing amounts. make sure that you mobile mechanic is fully licensed and insured; many of the them are just
    glorified shadetrees. if something really bad happens,
    they need to be fully insured, just like a real shop.
    and never ever let Tire Goobers diagnose ac problems.

    Most mobile mechanics are not professionally trained, not licensed and insured, barely has the necessary tools and many times creates a bigger problem than the existing ones and you won't be able to do much about it.
    To professionally work on A/C systems will require expensive equipments, which most of them don't have.
    A pro, licensed mobile tech with the necessary equipments and tools won't be cheaper than a shop.
