We are going to continue with our specialist theme for this month. We are confident enough to say that we are one of the best and most specialist vehicle service garages in Cardiff, our garage in Cardiff is pictured below.
We have all of the equipment and specialist facilities to service cars and vehicles that are completely brand new to the older models of vehicle.
Major car brands are introducing new technology to their vehicles every year, it is up to garages like ours to stay in touch with that technology to always ensure we offer specialist and reliable vehicle servicing to our customers.
If you go to a back street local garage, or a one man band garage, the problem here is they haven’t got the resources to stay in touch with new technology on vehicles and to repair that technology when it becomes faulty.
The main dealers want you to always continually go back and for to their expensive garages, this is why they introduce new technology to their cars and vehicles so it makes it hard for independent garages to service brand new cars, eventually putting smaller independent garages, back street garages and one man bands out of business.
But before the local smaller garages do go out of business you have to be very careful. If a local garage or one man band garage cannot pin point exact faults and repair them reliably then you could be going back and for to that garage and faced with mounting bills. The bad thing about this is you keep them in business for a bad job and your left out of pocket, then you have to find a garage like ours that do a reliable job however faced with more bills, it could become a vicious circle for you.
Because main dealers know that one man band garages and independent garages are unlikely to survive as they struggle to service new technology on vehicles, the customer is forced to go to a main dealer for the service, the main dealer can then charge high prices for car repair work and vehicle servicing.
What makes our car garage here at A1 Diagnostics different from other garages
For us here at A1 Diagnostics it is a very different scenario. We are different from one man band garages and smaller local garages. We invest in the best equipment and facilities to always offer reliable vehicle servicing, pin pointing exact faults and repairing them there and then, especially on brand new cars.
We only last year invested in £100,000 worth of new equipment and specialist vehicle technology upgrading our garage. Upgrading our garage with specialist facilities ensures we stay in touch with new technology introduced on brand new cars of all major brands like Audi, BMW, Toyota and more major brands.
The photos below show recent investments in facilities from a brand new electrical bay, a new MOT test ramp and wheel alignment ramp dedicated for servicing German vehicles, a new autologic computer helping us pin point exact faults with your vehicle and, a new ADAS system that gives us the facilities to reconfigure driver assisted controls.
So as you can see we have all the facilities to offer reliable and affordable vehicle servicing.
We have the advantage on price as well
So we some up now letting you know about our price advantages. If you go to a local garage or one man band garage who do not invest in equipment and cannot find exact faults there and then, you are likely going to have to continue going back to the garage time after time being faced with big bills.
We advise not to do that, find a garage that is reliable keeping costs down.
Finally we are going to look at price comparisons between us and the prices of main dealers. Here are two scenarios.
Pictured below we have a Nissan vehicle. The Nissan vehicle owner went to the main dealer and had an ABS pump and brake problem.
The main dealer quoted a price to replace and fit the ABS pump for £2500
Here at A1 Diagnostics we quoted a price to replace and fit the pump for £1000
We sourced the same parts as a dealer would and carried out the work to the same high standards the dealer would.
The Nissan vehicle owner saved £1500
Below we have another Nissan vehicle. The vehicle owner went to the main dealer as the cam belt needed replacing along with additional engine work.
The main dealer quoted a price to carry out the work for £6000
Here at A1 Diagnostics we quoted a price to carry out the same work for £1800.
We sourced the same quality parts as a main dealer would and carried out the work to the same high standards the main dealer would.
The Nissan vehicle owner saved £4200
So we hope you have enjoyed learning about our vehicle servicing industry. We hope that when you have a problem with your vehicle then consider a reliable car garage like ours that have all the specialist equipment enabling us to carry out reliable and affordable vehicle servicing.
