Why use an independent car garage instead of a dealership?

A recent survey revealed that over 70% of UK motorists prefer to visit an independent car garage over a dealership for their car’s maintenance needs. Participants listed the benefits of each option, and the survey found that motorists preferred independent businesses like The Bridge Motor Company because of factors involving cost, service, and staff.

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:

The price

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.

Friendlier staff

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.

The Bridge Motor Company are based in Withington, Didsbury, Manchester and has been for over 40 years!
