We all spend far too much of our time worrying about how we can possibly make our money go just that little bit further.
On the face of it, having your car serviced by SLM, when you could take it to a smaller garage, is just one more pressure on your budget. Read below to find out why we think you should think again.
1. A Full Manufacturer Service History.
If you fail to have your car serviced at all, it’s value on resale is dramatically reduced. How much less would you expect to pay for a car without a service history? A manufacturer service history will save you significantly more money than the possible difference in cost if you go to a reputable non-franchised repairer.
Don’t forget to point that out to us when you change your car!
2. Free Access to Safety Related Recalls.
We are required by law to ensure that any vehicle which comes to us under our franchise is checked to see if there is any safety related recall work needed – and we will carry out that work in nearly every case free of charge. Many vehicles fail to have safety related work carried out purely because the owner is not aware that it is needed. Often a completely reputable non- franchise dealer will spot the work, carry it out, and make a charge purely because they are not aware of the recall.
SLM are the only company locally who not only know about any relevant recalls, but also can carry out this work on your car free of charge.
3. Fully Trained Technicians.
All our technicians are trained to the standards required by our manufacturers, and are aware, through training and constantly working on the vehicles, of precisely what to look for and how most economically to carry out the work. Why not ask for a totally free Visual Safety Report to be carried out on your car. We should carry out just such an inspection every time you bring the car to us – so don’t be shy to ask.
4. Labour Rates.
Whilst it is true that often our hourly labour rate is higher than non- franchise workshops, in most cases the actual time charged is significantly less, so the actual cost is lower. We were actually quoted in Which? Magazine as being unhelpful because we refused to quote an hourly rate. We simply respond by noting that a customer pays a total bill, not an hourly rate!
5. Genuine Parts.
We only use genuine parts, guaranteed by our manufacturers and designed specifically by them for your car. The guarantee is all encompassing of Parts Labour and VAT.
6. And Finally………… Not only do all the above reasons prove that it is better value to come to St Leonards Motors to have your car serviced, but we also have a range of products such as Budget plans, which allow you to save a small amount a month to either fully or partially cover the costs of running your car. So, as you can see – it really does make sense to have your car serviced by SLM!
