If you don’t know much about cars, then (if you can excuse the pun) it can be very easy to be taken for a ride when you have a problem with your vehicle. Whilst many garages will be extremely open and honest about what needs doing, it is not always easy to identify which ones will be less than sincere.
Therefore, whether you want to make sure that you are going to get the best repairs, get car servicing where only the work that is urgently needed before an MOT is carried out, or even simply just wish to get an MOT where those carrying out the test will not be on the make, it is worth making sure you know who will be totally honest and who will not be.
Even the nicest of practitioners may well cut corners and deception might not just come from people telling you that work needs doing when it doesn’t. It might also simply be that certain garages do not carry out the work properly, using the wrong parts or even simply fitting them in a slapdash way.
Inferior car servicing will not just lead to a failed MOT, but it can also simply put you at risk physically and therefore the right MOT and service is not just about saving money and avoiding conmen, but also about ensuring you are totally safe.
The best way to be sure you will find a garage you can trust is to read reviews and make sure that the garage you are choosing has genuinely happy customers. Whilst you might not know your carburettor from your car battery, many people will, and will be more than happy to oust the fraudsters online.
There are also many sites that will only include reputable garages in their database and will easily help you to find the right garage in your area to carry out an MOT and service on your specific make and model of car.
