The Independent Garage Association’s message to consumers with the launch of its Car Repair Plan is to ‘shield yourself from unexpected repair costs’. This savings plan, tailored specifically for independent garages, will allow consumers to put money away in an account which can then be used to pay all maintenance costs at participating garages. Those accepting payment by this method must be members of the Independent Garage Association and approved by the Trust My Garage code scheme.
Stuart James, IGA Director said: “Consumers buying new cars are often tied into a plan which is limited to items covered in the service. Now, with this plan, all car owners can budget regardless of the age of the vehicle and with the added bonus of knowing that if they do experience a problem, the Independent Garage Association will investigate. There are already over 300 garages registered for the plan and we foresee this being the largest scheme of its kind in the UK.”
Multiple cars can be added to each Car Repair Plan account giving flexibility for families, and consumers will have reassurance that if they break down away from home, there will always be a participating outlet somewhere close by.
