The Benefits of Visiting Your Local Garage
Since 2003, motorists haven’t been obliged to have their cars serviced by a franchise dealer, that is, the manufacturer’s garage. Nowadays, we can take our cars where we like. So, with this in mind, why would you take your vehicle to a local garage over a national dealer?
There are numerous benefits to opting for a local garage over a national dealer, but these can often be overlooked by the average motorist. In this article, we’ll take a look at exactly what those benefits are.
A Personal Approach
When you opt for a local garage over a national dealer, the first thing that is likely to strike you is that you will be met by staff who have a great deal of time to dedicate to you, which isn’t always the case with larger garages. Receiving advice from friendly and knowledgeable staff is exactly what you need when you’re experiencing a problem with your car, and this is the sort of personal approach you can expect from a local garage.
Here at Wyatt Auto Services, our experienced team are always happy to provide advice or support when it comes to problems with your vehicle, providing consistently excellent standards of customer service.
The beauty of servicing your car with a local garage often lies in its convenience. That is, dropping your car just down the road for its MOT is far more convenient than having to travel to a manufacturer’s garage for the same job. If you stay local, you can get back much easier if your car needs to stay for long repairs. Similarly, you will avoid hassle such as having to take time off work or arranging for transport back to the garage once your car has been repaired.
Larger commercial garages will often have far more cars to deal with per day when it comes to servicing, meaning their mechanics can often be spread a lot thinner. Ultimately, this means they won’t have much time to spend looking at your car. Conversely, local garages will have fewer cars to work on and more time for each one, meaning that a more thorough job is guaranteed.
One of the biggest reasons motorists report a higher rate of satisfaction with independent garages is the price, and of course, everyone wants to be sure they are getting the best deal when it comes to their car. So, if value for money is a top priority, then your local garage is the best way to go.
