Son has just taken his car in for a 9k check and been relieved of £95 in the process,
Exactly...!How much does a professionals time cost? Looking at the warranty paperwork it looks like £85 +VAT is what they pay. I suppose it could be worse. Local solicitor charges £8.50 +vat per minute, Doctors were charging £150 an hour +VAT and that was 15 years ago.....and I wouldn't want him checking my car over!!
Some do, knowing that you'll be back with more business shortly - my tyre fitters like that - fixes the puncture for free knowing I'll be spending hundreds on a set of four later in the year!Exactly...!
Some people clearly think that garages are just in it for fun and will happily do work for free.
