The private vehicle is a fundamental tool in the day to day of our society, and although the breakdowns have reduced their impact, it is advisable to have a reliable workshop always at hand.
It is estimated that around 28 million of vehicles circulate in the Spanish territory today. Of these, the cars have a majority representation, since they are estimated to exist around 22 million.
In many cases, their use is linked to essential tasks in our daily lives such as going to work, shopping, taking children to school, etc. For that reason, and more with the arrival of winter and its increase of failures, it is advisable to have at hand the number of at least a couple of workshops to which we approach in case we suffer an unforeseen.
However, choosing a good workshop is not always easy.
The ideal is to leave it in the hands of a professional who solves, as soon as possible, the problems that our car can have and in the most efficient way. But how?
Here are some of the keys that we should take into account when we select our trusted workshops and when it comes to managing our breakdowns with him.:
Make sure that we are in front of a professional
Although one of the things that worries us the most when we have a breakdown is the “How long is the joke going to come out?”,We should not underestimate the quality of the repair. We must avoid resorting to the bungling, which surely will come to the end more expensive.
Professional workshops have a distinctive plaque on the door in which they are detailed: the acronym of the province, the number of industrial registration and the activity it develops.
Take an eye on the internet
The Internet offers us the possibility to reach a type of information that would otherwise be impossible. We talk about the opinions of the regular users of a workshop or those that at any given time have made use of it.
The data you provide will be of great help,Since we can get information, for example, about those workshops that are more specialized or that stand out for solving a particular breakdown, or those in which the change of wheels is more economical, etc.
Clear conditions, no small print
Seriousness is one of the most important aspects when it comes to choosing a workshop. When the mechanic performs a first diagnosis of the fault, it is advisable to request a repair quotation. If this is made in writing is an even greater security, not to scare us when paying.
Remember that asking for a budget does not have major implications and if you do not seem appropriate you can always not accept it.
We go to the workshop for a breakdown related, for example, with the battery of our vehicle.
When we go to pick up our car, we find that during the repair the mechanic has discovered other problems.In these cases we must know that the workshop has a period of 48 hours to let you know the hidden defects and, just under your consent, you may also proceed to your settlement.
Broken down Invoice
If the budget did not include a breakdown of all charges made, only the final price, the invoice should, however, detail them. The invoice must show each of the expenses (parts, labor, etc.) accompanied by a description of the same.
For all this, we invite you to pass through our mechanical center in the area of Denia, next to the Seat dealership, and check the professionalism of our technical service.
