When it comes to vehicle servicing, many motorists believe they have no choice but to go to a dealership. However, under UK law, the Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Order (MVBEO)* means motorists have a legal right to choose where they have their cars serviced, whether that’s at a dealership or a local garage, which is often much more cost-effective.
For drivers whose vehicles are out of warranty, our own research indicates that one in five believe they are obliged to use a dealer. So, if your car is due a service and out of warranty, keep reading to see how a Halfords’ service can save you money.
