The process is simple: garages offer timely money-off deals to fill empty bays when their workload is light. They update their pricing structures in real-time, so visitors to TootCompare.com can always find the best value car servicing in their area.
Affordability is more important now than ever, particularly in light of the survey’s shocking results.
Some thirteen million UK motorists (39%) will avoid an annual service because of the cost involved. This means that they will rely solely on the MOT to examine the safety of the car. A further 10% admitted that they never checked the pressure of their tyres and perhaps most worryingly 15% confessed that they were currently experiencing problems with their brakes, but did not intend to have them repaired.
Douglas Rotberg, CEO of TootCompare.com said: “It is regrettable to think that motorists would cut corners when their own safety, and the safety of others, was at stake. But safety is not the only issue. Attempting to save money by avoiding an annual service is likely to cost more in the long run, considering the cost of MOT failures and ongoing repairs.
“Instead of cutting out car services altogether, it is more cost effective to choose a better value service.
With this in mind we created TootCompare.com to provide motorists with a wider choice of service prices and garage options in their local area, so that they could book the right deal. Motorists throughout the UK are already taking advantage of our unique car servicing comparison site as we make it easy to find the best deal.”
