It appears a given that if our car is quite new that we automatically take it to a main dealer for a service or general mechanical work. Whilst it’s understandable if it is still in warranty, if it’s not why?
A popular misconception is that you have to go back to the main dealer, this is wrong. Why pay £120 per hour plus, when you can pay £50 (60% cheaper) an hour at a good non dealer garage? The next question is – how do you know if a garage is any good? Well we may just have the answer to that question
SILVER LANE GARAGE in Leeds has not only been trading under the capable hands of Steven Smith (see pic) since 2008. It has achieved a 5 star rating on Google from independent customers. It also only employs fully trained main dealer mechanics. Alongside been a fully accredited MOT station. They have recently invested extensively in state of the art ramps (4 I total); the most advanced diagnostic systems a luxurious waiting room, where teas, coffees etc are all complimentary.
Steven told me they turn around 20 cars a day on average, as they are very aware that people are time precious these days. So a quick turnaround is imperative for many clients. To make life even easier they have a courtesy car, and will collect and
deliver your car back to you.
As the garage is so big they can easily accommodate 4 x 4s and even light commercial. They endeavour to offer the complete service, without compromising on quality or emptying your bank balance.
In addition to all of the above the offer a complete breakdown recovery service between 8:30 am and 5 pm – where they
repair the vast majority of cars on the road side. Many of their customers are fleet in addition to the individual car owner.
Steven says he is proud to have such a good reputation which he has worked hard to achieve in an industry that is known for
being less than scrupulous. Why pay 60% more for the same work else wear – it makes no sense, especially as Silver Lane
Garage offer all the same warranties on the work they do. This is why they have a very rare 5 star rating.
