MOT and Service Savings

Written By: admin

Driving is an expensive aspect of everyday modern life. Cars themselves cost a lot of money and there are plenty of additional costs which we must pay in order for it to be legal for us to take to the roads.

There is insurance and road tax to pay for, not to mention fuel – for which the price seems to be constantly rising. Evidently, saving money on driving is a difficult task. The obvious option is to trade in your Range Rover Sport and buy something smaller like a used Toyota Auris. It will be cheaper to buy initially and the smaller engine will equate to less trips to the petrol station.

But what about saving money on your MOT and Servicing?

The standard protocol for most of us is to take our car down the local garage every year and accept the first price we are quoted for a service or an MOT without questioning it. I was the same, I’d just go to MOT Sutton Coldfield and take whatever price they throw at me. There seems to be no other option, but how are you to know whether you are paying the right price or whether you can get the same done for cheaper elsewhere?

Well recently there really hasn’t been a definitive answer to that question, but thanks to leading UK automotive site, all of that is about to change.

They have introduced a new service and MOT centre comparison site which allows users to input the make and model of their vehicle along with the area in which they live. Within seconds a list of centres and garages are displayed and sorted by proximity to the postcode. The listings also include comprehensive pricing structures for each garage.

The site couldn’t be easier to use and it enables motorists to find the best deal in their area in a matter of minutes. Considering that MOTs and services are generally annual occurrences, it could save you £££s for years to come.
