Why Use A Main Dealer?

Author : Kirsten Hendrich

Many people who either buy cars or service their cars have a slightly negative attitude towards main dealers and their respective prices. So why should anyone use them? Contrary to popular belief, main dealers aren't always more expensive than independent workshops/dealers and the benefits that they provide can prove extremely useful. Often their servicing and parts are of a much higher quality, and you can always rest safe in the knowledge that they are constantly monitored by the manufacturers themselves. This article explains a few reasons as to why you may want to consider using a main dealer next time you find yourself shopping for a car or booking a service.


When buying a car, trust plays a really large part in any deal. As a buyer you have to feel like you trust the seller. After all, you only have a small amount of time in which to investigate the history and quality of the car you are buying. Added to this, you are likely to be parting with a substantial amount of money and therefore you need to reduce the risk as much as possible. Main dealers offer quite a lot when it comes to trust. Most will pre inspect all the vehicles on sale and all dealers will offer a range of manufacturer backed warranties. These services substantially reduce the risk of buying something dodgy.

High Quality Servicing

Servicing you car can be a bit of a headache and you can sometimes end up paying for work that you're not sure you need. Main dealer workshops are staffed by mechanics that have been trained and qualified to work on your specific make and model of car. Also the equipment is all set up and provided to work on a particular make of vehicle. This all means that you can expect only the highest standard of work. The other benefit is that the parts used will only ever be genuine manufacturer parts. This is a great way to ensure that your car will run for as long as possible. Although the genuine parts may cost a little bit more in the first place, you know the quality will be good and that the life expectancy of each part will be as long as possible, therefore saving you money in the long run.

Holding The Cars Value

When selling a car, the service history paperwork will add a large amount of value if it is up to date. On top of this, buyers really like to see that the car has been serviced by main dealers. Having regular service stamps from the main dealer will be invaluable when it comes to selling your car. By doing this you are showing the potential buyer that your car has been properly maintained 100% in line with the manuals specifications.
