MOT testing is a funny old thing. It’s probably the most misunderstood area of the garage trade. When completed properly it can be a valid and worthwhile safety test, to a point, although often it is devalued and discounted.
We can never work out why some garages are so quick to heavily discount the test fee, especially given that an MOT Testing bay costs upwards of £50,000 to install.
You have to ask yourself; “How can Fred In A Shed Garage Co. make a living charging £35.00 for a MOT?” and then smell a rat – a very big rat! Given that the garage has to recover the cost of owning an MOT testing bay, the only way to make profit on discounting a MOT is to either cut corners or carry out unnecessary repairs- “and that ain’t good”.
Especially when you come back to the fact that the MOT Test is primarily a safety test designed to protect you and your family! That’s why we believe in unbiased and independent MOTs. We are not looking to rip you off for unnecessary repairs as we only do MOTs.
