Talk:Tag:shop=car repair

maybe add some information like

service:repair=* or service=* with values tyres, electrical, engine... some shop only do tyres repair -Yod4z 14:53, 25 October 2012 (BST)

Overlap with shop=car

There's a clash of definitions, or an overlap at least, with Tag:shop=car. But maybe we just need to adjust the definition of shop=car. See Talk:Tag:shop=car#Relation to shop=car_repair.

These things would be less likely to happen, and less problematic if tag documentation pages like this were not left completely empty for so long.

Add the value vehicle_type=*

To add a vehicle_type. This should stick to the list to be seen in "access". i.e. vehicle_type=hgv or vehicle_type=motorhome. This is needed for repair shops, which only repair trucks for example. --MeastroGlanz (talk) 11:25, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

This is a very good question. How to mark specialized workshops?
a) repair shops for cars, e.g. Renault, Volkswagen, etc.:
b) repair shops for lorries eg: Iveco, Man, Volvo
c) repair shops for agricultural vehicles and machines.
d) repair shops for cars & lorries...


"Some mechanics may also sell gasoline, although they have fewer pumps than amenity=fuel. " - shouldn't this be changed to encourage users to map the amenity=fuel separately to the shop? GinaroZ (talk) 23:31, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Fixed, thanks Mateusz Konieczny (talk) 11:53, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

Acceleration of tag service:vehicle:xxx=yes

There should be added tag widely used and already implemented into official OsmAnd. Those tags describe precisely what service is provided for customer in shop.

From tag info 1 457 service:vehicle:car_repair 761 service:vehicle:oil_change 569 service:vehicle:tyres 415 service:vehicle:used_car_sales 388 service:vehicle:new_car_sales 385 service:vehicle:diagnostics 373 service:vehicle:brakes 355 service:vehicle:car_parts 352 service:vehicle:repairs 348 service:vehicle:inspection 244 service:vehicle:batteries 241 service:vehicle:air_conditioning 216 service:vehicle:body_repair 185 service:vehicle:electrical 153 service:vehicle:tires 132 service:vehicle:wheels 96 service:vehicle:glass 84 service:vehicle:truck_repair 60 service:vehicle:muffler 58 service:vehicle:alignment 50 service:vehicle:Transmission_Repair

This is currently in discussion, see [[1]]
IMHO the tagging scheme for services should generally be standardized for all shop types, at least the tags which aren't specific
  • *sales=*
  • *repair=*
  • *rental=*
  • *parts=*
  • *type=*

Should a Towing company be tagged as a car repair shop?

How would one map the location of a towing company? Some have been mapped as shop=car_repair, but many towing companies do not perform repairs.

See also

How about car:transport=towing ?
So you would be able to filter for it whatever shop is "on top" ? (and other transport types could be considered)
