When you have to take your car in to a garage for a repair, service or MOT, there is a level of trust that you have to have in the garage to do a good job and not charge you for work that doesn’t need doing. This can be a very intimidating time, as you have to really rely on the information that they tell you being correct.
When looking for a reputable garage, you can only really go off reviews either online or by friends and family. The chances are if the garage isn’t acting responsibly then someone will talk about it and they will build up a bad reputation.
If you have taken your car in and are really concerned about what they have said needs doing, you can of course get a second opinion. This may cost you a small amount of money but you may have a chance of claiming it back through the courts if the garage has been dishonest.
