VW Cambelt Change at Fleet Road Garage Lincolnshire Cost You Less

Among the "routine" repairs VW owners pay for, a cambelt change is one of the more expensive ones. It's not a complicated repair by any means, but it is labour-intensive. And at anywhere from £65 to £100 per hour it's the labour that makes the cost of replacing your cam belt so expensive. According to Volkswagen guidelines, changing the cambelt can take anywhere from 2.5 to 4.9 hours depending on model and year. But even at 2.5 hours and the low end of the price range, you could pay £200 just for the labour alone.

A VW Cambelt Change in Lincolnshire will undoubtedly cost you more at your main dealer for several reasons. First of all, he has all of the added costs of running a dealership that get added into the price you pay. Secondly, the parts he orders will be marked up significantly in order to make a profit for the service department. Yet if you're willing to have that cambelt replaced at an independent facility like Fleet Road Garage, you will get a much better price in the end.

Repair Facilities and Predetermined Rates

It's interesting to note that repair facilities use a chart of predetermined rates in order to decide what it's going to cost you for a given repair. That means if the manufacturer says your VW Cambelt Change will require three hours of labour, that's what your dealer will charge you for, even if it only takes 2.5 hours. Some independent garages do the same. The difference in price lies is how much your dealer charges per hour as opposed to an independent garage.

It's a given that dealers have more costs involved in doing business, so the listed rates they use will reflect that. By contrast, your independent garage will use its own rate chart with labour costs that can be significantly less. They will also tend to use after-market parts where available rather than spending the extra money for parts directly from the manufacturer. After-market parts are just as good because they must pass stringent manufacturer requirements in order to be approved.
