We all want a good deal and a fixed price on your next new car service sounds great, but the reality is that the fixed price on offer is not always the price you wind up paying.
Usually offered via comparison websites, a fixed price on your car service may seem like a win for the consumer with multiple workshops bidding for your business. However, when retail competition like this occurs in workshops it can lead to questionable tactics and pricing strategies being used. Many businesses aim to get customers through the door and then “upsell” to generate greater profit past the fixed price advertised. It really pays to know what you are buying by carefully reading the terms and conditions of what’s actually included in the fixed price service.
Reputable workshops usually don’t participate in fixed price servicing programs as their loyal customers trust to carry out the job properly using genuine quality parts and lubricants.
Apart from hidden additional costs what is often missing from fixed price car service is the extra care and attention like the 65 Point Vehicle Report carried out by Repco Authorised Service centres. It is checks like this that saves money by picking up on regular maintenance items not covered by fixed price car service offers before they become an expensive problem.
