Having your car serviced or repaired can be a stressful experience if you are unsure which garage to trust. Going through the main dealer is easy, but it’s expensive and not really the best choice if you have an older vehicle. We’ve also heard all the stories about the garage rip-off down the back street. Nobody wants to be taken for a fool. So what to do?
Have you considered a specialist? In addition to the main dealer, there are reliable workshops that sometimes offer better service than the main dealer. In such a volatile world, reputation is everything, especially online. In fact, that’s the best place to start, reviews. If you are considering having your vehicle serviced or repaired, do your local research and find a company that has a lot of great reviews.
As the name suggests, a specialist company has a much deeper understanding of vehicles, how they work, what symptoms point to a specific problem, experience in carrying out highly complex repairs or maintenance and access to manufacturer support. The modern car is a sophisticated machine with an intricate electronic system to control and monitor the proper functioning of a vehicle. Overall, a higher level of processing and service is required to properly maintain and repair these sometimes obscure technologies.
VAG Specialists Volksmaster started as a small family business serving the North Manchester area and Manchester City Center and has grown to 4 branches over the years. The latest addition opened for car service in September 2021 in Heywood, Rochdale. Over the years the company has built an excellent reputation for quality, reliability and no premium prices backed by years of experience, excellent service and unrivaled customer care. Volksmaster is still a family business.
Although they specialize in the VAG group and German cars, their service centers are more than capable of servicing vehicles from all manufacturers. Regardless of the make, model or age of your car, customers will receive the same quality service.
A premium car service without a premium price
Volksmaster is up to date with the latest maintenance technology and equipment. Their specialist mechanics are trained by the manufacturers and benefit from full manufacturer support. Your technicians are always trained directly by the manufacturer on the latest technologies. There’s no thinking, no trying when it comes to your vehicle. You’ll always get an accurate diagnosis, excellent service, the best repairs, and most importantly, world-class customer service.
A common misconception of many is that if the maintenance is NOT performed by the main dealer, the vehicle warranty will be void. It’s not, it’s not anymore, and this change was initiated a few years ago. Your vehicle warranty will remain valid even if the vehicle is not serviced by the main dealer. However, in most cases there is a stipulation that genuine manufacturer parts must be used in order to maintain this warranty.
The Volksmaster guarantee that having your car serviced by them will not affect your warranty and that is a promise. If necessary, they also update your maintenance history and your digital maintenance records. In terms of quality, Volksmaster is absolutely on par with all the service capabilities of the main dealers.
With the opening of the new service center in Heywood, Rochdale, residents of Heywood, Rochdale, Bury, Middleton, Milnrow and the surrounding areas will find it easier to get quality vehicle service at a great price.
Smart Service Options
Car service work is inexpensive, and the cost of common repairs can be found out in advance, since they are available on the Volksmaster Website. Costs are lower than main dealer without compromising on quality, service or customer care.
When your car is out of warranty, you have the option to choose between the service schedule specified by the manufacturer in your owner’s manual, or they can offer you a customized schedule based on their experience of servicing and your vehicle model. Both schedules work equally well to ensure your car stays in excellent condition.
If you have an older vehicle, you have the option of choosing between manufacturer replacement parts or slightly cheaper items that are still quality equivalent replacement parts. Either way, you don’t have to worry about any deterioration in your car’s performance, durability, safety or resale value.
As mentioned earlier, if they come across a problem or a needed repair while servicing your vehicle, they will get in touch with you and provide you with all the details, as well as the cost and time it would take to complete the work. Additional work will only be carried out with your consent. There is also absolutely no obligation to have the work done, you can say no. At Volksmaster there are no surprises on the bill.
After all, when you have your vehicle serviced or repaired you want to be confident that the job has been done properly, professionally and that the technicians know what they are doing and you are not in for a nasty surprise a few weeks later. Peace of mind is part of the Volksmaster ethos.
