Getting a Better Deal on Your Car Maintenance
Getting a regular MOT and service is something all drivers need to do. It can end up being incredibly costly, not least because garages know this is something which is essential rather than optional! It can be expensive if you need to have several parts fixed or replaced on your car, so it is important you know how to get a better deal from your garage.
The first thing you can do is shop around for the best MOT prices. Lots of garage offer fairly cheap MOTs, but they do not include any service work. You may be able to haggle with a garage to get a service added on for a good price. If a garage know you are going to stick with them for some work, you can usually have a strong hand to influence the price.
Check the costs that other garages are charging for typical maintenance work on cars – if you have a list of alternative places which offer good prices, you can potentially encourage your own garage to compete with others to keep your business!
