I bought a new car over 15 years ago, it was a trusty machine that served me and my family well. The car naturally needed regular servicing and maintenance to keep it working reliably, and thinking it was the right thing to do, I booked the car’s first service with the manufacturer dealership. Yes, it was costly and I could have got it cheaper down the road, but I thought… no, no, these guys sold me the car and would be the best people to service it.
So, when it came to additional servicing I would call the dealership to arrange a suitable time – I had a service advisor assigned to me called Mike. Mike was great and knew everything about my car, but each time the car needed work I took a gulp when I paid the bill. I knew it would be cheaper to go down the road, but I thought… no, no, Mike is great and knows me and my car well, it always receives a good clean and the coffee there is great. So, I stuck with Mike for a few years.
However, the dealership got larger and I couldn’t book directly with Mike, I had to speak to their call centre, who knew very little about me or my car. Each time I needed to answer 20 questions just to book my car in for its annual service.
When I arrived at the garage they didn’t have all the information that I’d relayed in my 20 answers and miraculously I needed unexpected replacement parts, that surprised and annoyed me. I started to receive larger bills each time, plus there was no coffee!
I had a reality check – why am I paying over the odds for routine maintenance to receive a poor quality service. Guess what I did the next day? I signed up with the garage down the road who halved my bills and provided a more bespoke experience – a quality service that far exceeded my expectations considering the price.
