    Just been offered this deal.. is it any good ?

    Hi all,

    A guy just knocked on the door sayin he's from the new T&H Motorists Center thats opened up by us.
    They are offering ;

    1 x Labour Free Major Service
    1 x Labour Free Interim Service
    Front wheel alignment
    4 Wheel balancing
    Brake inspection and adjustment
    AirCon Inspection
    2x Car wash & Vacuum's (when serviced)
    Winter Check
    1 x Puncture Repair
    1 x MOT (Won't need this..)

    All for £89.. is that good?
    Obviously parts are not included, but my GF is just about to get her Skoda Fabia serviced and was looking at £120 for an interim - Is this going to be much cheaper?

    Also has anyone ever used this garage ? They have places dotted around from what I can tell..
    The guy is going to give me a ring at 9.30 tonight to see if I want to go ahead strange thing is he wants the £89 up front and I wasn't willing to give card details, so he asked me to drop a cheque off to him at the premier lodge which made me a bit suss.. his paper work all looked legit though

    What do you think ?

    sounds like a good deal, but all comes down to how good their work is,
    also a winter check, aircon inspection, brake inspection etc just sounds like a way of getting more money out of you tbh,

    and surely it isnt labour free if you have to pay for it and they dont supply the parts

    id always be wary of a compnay selling door to door, if they were that good you would go to them, and as for being new, just posting flyers would be better

    My intuition would tell me to Avoid Like The Plague.

    However, you could also visit the service centre to see how legit the offer is.

    But as said, no money till the work is done.

    Pretty much what I thought then

    Hence why I didn't give the guy and money and there was no way on earth I'd give him my card details! lol

    Shame though, my GF is skint atm and could do with a decent deal for getting her car serviced!
