Good Garages Women Can Trust
The UK garage industry
Few motorists realise that UK garages aren’t required to be licensed to service and repair our cars. Nor do mechanics have to be qualified or accredited as competent to do the job.
Imagine that being the case for electricians or gas fitters – even though a bad mechanic could just as easily compromise your personal safety.
In a nutshell, when we choose a garage on the basis of price alone, we may well be taking a big risk for fear garage staff cut quality corners or that prices escalate when they start the work.
FOXY Lady Approved female friendly garages
Our sister company FOXY Choice identifies, approves and monitors the performance of the garages and accident repair centres we promote to members of FOXY Lady Drivers Club.
All the garages we promote have signed the FOXY Lady Approved female friendly Promise to “never overcharge, patronise or sell women services they don’t need.” And to keep them on their toes we encourage your regular feedback.
In addition to this commitment we look for
- measurable evidence of quality workmanship
(see FOXY Garage Guide for more information here)
- price transparency
- local car collection services
- women in customer facing roles
- a comfortable waiting room with drinks made available and female magazines to read
- a clean washroom
Finally, if members have a problem with a local garage or dealership that isn’t part of the FOXY Choice network, we’ll support them through the complaints procedure so they obtain a fair and reasonable outcome in the circumstances.
Here is the latest list of FOXY Lady Approved female friendly garages and dealerships.
