Hi there Simon, I am originally from Dundee, and still visit family there. I can only speak for myself, but what I look for from a garage is good service, coupled with informed staff, good value for money, and honesty. I am self-employed, and therefore a great believer in supporting local businesses. If you can offer that combination, then you can count me as a client. I think that since the rules regarding warranties & service requirements have been deregulated, many owners are choosing to vote with their feet - those with older cars were never tied-in like that anyway, and feel that their car's value doesn't justify the high labour rates. Where are you planning to set up? Paul. (P.S. All the best with your venture)
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
2005 FIAT Ducato 2.8JTD LWB Gran Volume, 2000 Kawasaki ZZR 1100 D7 'fullpower' in black + full GIVI & KAPPA luggage, 2007 MB R-Class 320 CDi Sport LWB uprated by Brabus to 300Bhp don't know if there's a 155mph limiter - will be fun finding out! 2004 Mercedes Vaneo 1.7 CDi Ambiente 7-seater
