Motorists are being driven by quality and value-for-money vehicle servicing rather than the cheapest price, according to a new survey.
A poll of 1000 motorists answering questions on the UK-wide Good Garage Scheme website – http://www.goodgaragescheme.com/ - has revealed that the majority of motorists using its member garages for vehicle servicing are not motivated by price alone.
Figures in the Good Garage Scheme Service Pricing Statistics Survey showed that 37% of customers pay between £125-£150 for a vehicle service, while 20% pay £200 and more. Motorists paying the lowest prices from £80-£125 totalled 25.1 per cent.
The feedback has shown that even in a recession people have not necessarily been looking to pay the cheapest price for vehicle servicing. They do, however, want a good quality service without paying over the odds, which is what Good Garage Scheme members can offer.
