Here is the latest list of FOXY’s female friendly approved garages and repairers including independents, franchised dealerships, fast fit and mobile services.
Did you know that UK garages that carry out service and repair work aren’t regulated which is why mechanics don’t have to be licensed to fix our cars? This is why a cheap MOT or car servicing package from a garage you don’t know can be a false economy when some cut safety corners or fail to do a job altogether?
NB: Citizens Advice confirm that complaints about independent garage services come in third on their complaints list behind Top of the Complaints Chart ‘used cars’ and Runner Up ‘mobile phones’.
So you need to know which garages and dealers are measurably better than the rest – not just choose a local one and cross your fingers!
Female Friendly Approved Garages
All the garages the Club works with have signed the FOXY Lady Approved Female Friendly Promise to “never overcharge, patronise or sell women anything they don’t need.”
We also look for
- a professional-looking website
- measurable signs of quality
(see FOXY Garage Guide for more information here)
- local awards/recommendations/social media presence
- value for money
- clean facilities
- a friendly welcome
as well as choices to include:
- mobile services
- car collection/delivery services
- courtesy car options
- women in the business
- ladies evenings/community events
We welcome all recent female feedback about garages, car dealers and tyre services in your area. If this is about a FOXY Lady Approved business you will be offered a free online subscription to the Club as a thank you gift from the business concerned.
