It appears the mark up on more specialist parts is quite large. When challenged it is suggested that the standard labour rate of £98 has been discounted to £55 to help reduce costs. I would suggest obtaining an itemised quotation before allowing any work to be carried out. You might have to wait fro some time to get your vehicle back also.
I booked 2 new tyres on line, and was contacted by Barry the same day, to inform me that the tyres were out of stock. He helped me choose appropriate different ones [and believe me, I know nothing about tyres], even matching the price of my first, cheaper, choice. Between booking and taking the car there I got a comparable quote from my local Hyundai dealer, who even after "sharpening the pencil" couldn't come close to the HiQ price. I dropped the car off as arranged the next day, work started immediately, which I watched on screen in the waiting area, and 30 minutes later, I was good to go. A very efficient and cost effective service provided by HiQ. Would definitely use the Pickersleigh Road, Malvern branch again and recommend it to others.
