Car servicing for womenBack

A recent survey has revealed that women are phenomenally bad at performing any type of car maintenance – this might stem from a lack of interest in all things mechanical, or indeed a lack of knowledge under the bonnet, but either way its therefore important that women realise there is help out there.

The research conducted by Bosch Car Service revealed that only three in ten women actually take their own car in for a service, as opposed to seven in ten men, with more than a third of women citing the reason was that they would simply not enjoy the experience of car servicing.

At Trusted Dealers we are able to offer all of our customers the opportunity to follow a complete aftersales and service plan to ensure that all of our cars sold, stay on the road for many years to come. Together with our 10 Points of Difference promise, we can guarantee peace of mind to all of our customers as soon as they leave the forecourt.

Most women given the chance would fully admit that they often feel ripped off after a return from the garage, mainly because a lack of knowledge has meant that nine times out of ten they must accept what the car mechanic is telling them in order to get back on the road. It is therefore important that car servicing professionals do all that they can to build up the same levels of confidence in all of their customers regardless of the gender or their age.

One way in which women can get ahead is to choose car servicing which is tailor made for females. There are many women only garage services available such as Foxyladydrivers.co.uk or Diamond.co.uk which have been put in place to ensure that ladies do not only feel reassured when they drop their car in, but they also feel satisfied that when it comes to paying the bill, they are not getting ripped off.

Alternatively, one way to stay ahead of the game is to take a course in how to perform basic services on your car. Again, there are plenty of online services which offer this type of training such as Womenatthewheel.co.uk which offers tuition in basic maintenance checks for free if you book one of their courses online.

Whichever route you choose, it pays to be savvy and to recognise the pitfalls when it comes to car servicing. It is essential to always request a full breakdown of the work which has been carried out from your mechanic, and also to make sure that you get a stamp in your service handbook, which will prove valuable when it comes to selling your car on.
