MOT and Servicing For Less

For several years now the economic climate of the UK has been in a state of recession, and hasn’t shown many signs of returning to a point of healthy growth in the foreseeable future. Unemployment across the country is higher than it has been for decades, as jobs become harder and harder to come by, while taxes have increased disproportionally with the price of goods. Cuts to government spending are continually putting strain on the capabilities of public sector services, at a time when disposable income is at an all-time low for many.

Needless to say, for whomever it wasn’t already a priority, the need to save money certainly is now. One aspect of modern life which proves difficult to cut back on yet continues to rise in its costs is driving. The vast majority of us cannot get around the fact that we need to drive, and of course fueling, taxing and maintaining our vehicles makes for some serious dents in the proverbial wallet. So we are all on the prowl for some cheap car servicing.

Unfortunately, the price of fuel is a variable upon which we mortals have no means to influence, similar to road tax. However, what we can save on is MOT and servicing. This may come as a new concept to many, who are used to taking their car down to their local garage and accepting the first price quoted. In all fairness, how is a person to know what a ‘good’ price is for an MOT or service, or which garages offer the cheapest deals?mot-sad-man

Well until now, there really hasn’t been an effective way to know where to find the cheapest price for a service for your vehicle. Thanks to a brand new service introduced by leading automotive site BuyYourCar.co.uk however, which is the first of its kind in the UK, all that is about to change. Aforementioned service is an online MOT and service comparison site which allows motorists to input the make and model of their vehicle as well as the area in which they live. Within seconds a list of garages along with comprehensive pricing information are displayed by proximity to the specified postcode.

This enables the user to make an informed decision on where to take their vehicle for its service or MOT. The site really couldn’t be easier to use and will undoubtedly save you £££s over years to come.happy-man For example, you can find out where is cheapest in Manchester to service a Vauxhall Corsa.
