Getting the right tools (diagnostic, parts) is key to getting the best service for your car. Specialized job requires specialized knowledge.
2. Warranty – does your car service shop gives warranty for the job done by them? Reputable workshop usually have some form of warranty for the work done, ask your workshop and get the most for your money. More importantly, find a workshop that will honor the warranty to avoid any unnecessary confrontation and stress.
3. Location – Car servicing is not something that’s enjoyable, you’ll have to deal with the downtime and the traffic. So find somewhere which is conveniently located for you so you don’t need to plan your day around servicing the car. Some workshop also offers pickup service, or advance booking or drop off of some sorts, do ask your workshop and see if they can offer that!
4. Added value – It can be a proper lounge with wifi for you to rest, or delivery services. These services are usually offered at next to no charges to their customers, find one that gives you the most value!
