Life can be simple…Car Servicing Poole
Car servicing advice from Matt Peacock, MD of Star Tech and Star Automotive. Matt gives his opinion on trade matters.
I was reading with interest an industry article about car servicing and repairs online the other day. It stated the disparity between franchised main dealers regarding the cost and time for a basic diagnostic check. This is an initial technical test carried out at the first sign of an electrical problem with your car. Apparently, most people were charged between £100 to £180. Furthermore, the timescale would be anything from an hour up to a whole day. Now, I know that not all jobs are straight forward in the industry. However, I believe the automotive industry really needs to get it’s act together. There seems to be a real lack of consistency in pricing.
What drives us on…
This type of confusion for main dealership customers is exactly what drives and motivates our independent, family run car servicing centres to offer a fluid and simple customer experience. Starting from the moment you phone us, you will be answered by a real person. No switchboards, no automated voicemails, no confusing jargon. We may have busy moments, however we will always aim to give you our full attention and full transparency with our prices, that is our promise.
Furthermore, at Star Automotive and Star Tech Ltd, our workshops operate the latest technology and our technicians and staff have a wealth of experience previously working within franchised main dealerships.
This means we know just what to do…and what NOT to do!
