Why use an independent car garage instead of a dealership?
Here at The Bridge Motor Company, we’re passionate about promoting the benefits of independent car garages. Let’s look at the reasons why you should opt for an independent service in times of car trouble:
Independent car garages are renowned for having lower prices on car maintenance repairs than main dealer garages.
Supporting local businesses
A lot of survey respondents gave this response as their reason for choosing an independent car garage. Motorists often prefer to give smaller, independently-run companies their business, rather than big corporations.
A personal service
If you choose an independent car garage for your maintenance needs, you will find that your service is more bespoke and tailored to you. Main car dealerships are very busy and see a lot of customers, they are unlikely to give you this level of personalised attention.
At The Bridge Motor Company, we are passionate about assisting our local community and maintaining our family values. Whether you’re a regular customer or bringing your car in for a one-off repair, we will be sure to make you feel at home.
You won’t be charged for things you don’t need
One of the issues motorists incur when they visit main dealerships is that they are often convinced that certain parts or repairs are necessary when they aren’t. Mechanics at main dealerships are specially trained to upsell, whereas independent garages simply advise you on what you need.

Fantastic, friendly and non-patronising customer service (unlike a lot of garages). I called about a problem with my windscreen wiper arm and they suggested bringing it in there and then. I brought the car in, had the problem fixed and drove away within 25 minutes of calling! Will definitely return and recommend to others.
So nice to come across a good, friendly, well-established motor company when I found myself in a pickle with a puncture on the wrong side of town for me. Steve and the team were really helpful and so near too the tram stop too. Could not be better.
Hi just wanted to say thank you for finding and repairing all the leaks in my car. I was very impressed with the service and customer care provided. Thanks Dave for your detailed explanation and for your advice and tips. I highly recommend your garage to others for a genuine, friendly and reasonably priced service.
Not a request, but just had my car fixed and wanted to say thanks! Was recommended this garage by multiple people and very pleased with service, reliability and quickness. Will definitely be using this garage again.
Excellent service - polite, friendly, efficient, honest and professional. Very trustworthy and I don't feel like they would ever rip you off.
Friendly efficient service
The garage is really communicative and informative. I always trust their advice.
The staff always explain issues properly and keep you updated.
Very reliable staff who always keep me informed about the jobs that need doing before going ahead with the repairs. Fair prices, friendly staff and high quality jobs.
