We all know servicing is essential not just for successful maintenance of your car but that a car with a full service history will fetch a premium when you come to sell your vehicle.
Using an independent and established garage with a very high satisfaction rating like Vulcan will save you a lot of money over the cost you’d pay at an official dealer.
Have you ever wondered why that is? Network dealers make little or no money from the cars they sell, particularly new cars. They occupy far more space than independent garages like Vulcan, they’ve got to hold far more stock, and they employ double or treble the people. Their costs are enormous.
Being an official dealer really only makes sense for them by the money they make from people bringing their car in for servicing. And that higher price doesn’t mean a better deal.
According to the Office of Fair Trading, the former body responsible for protecting consumer interests agrees, stating in report 85/04 that “Servicing at franchise dealers is typically more expensive than servicing at independent garages, averaging £199 and £116 respectively without any apparent difference in the quality of service offered.”
Which type of service would suit you best?
- An interim service (every 6,000 miles or so)
- A full service (every 12,000 miles or 12 months)
Let us take a look at your car and find out about its history. We’ll then be able to recommend a servicing schedule specifically for you. Speak with Vulcan today.
