Seat Garage Oldham

Oldham Town Hall

If you are in the Oldham area looking to have your Seat serviced by professionals with experience combined with affordability you should consider an independent Seat Garage in Oldham. There are many garages to choose from for excellent quality and experience at a much lower cost than you will find at the main dealer.

There are several misconceptions as to why people choose to go to the Seat main dealer rather than use an independent garage including; the warranty, to maintain full value when selling the vehicle and in order to potentially not have to worry about unnecessary work being performed on the car. In some cases, going to the main dealer might not be the best alternative so we’ll look at some leading reasons why people do not shop around for the best car service for them.

Your Seat Warranty

Car Warranty

Legally, a new vehicle must have a two-year warranty. The warranty begins with the first registration and continues even if the car is sold within the two-year period. Many people worry if they go to an independent garage that their warranty will be void. This is just not true. A manufacturer can not force a car owner to use their dealerships. That said, a manufacturer may have certain specifications regarding when the car should be serviced and how the service will be carried out during the warranty period.

One of these conditions is the time period when your car must be serviced while under warranty. You must ensure this will be done in accordance with the schedule you have been provided when purchasing the vehicle. They also require you to keep a service record and only use original parts. As long as you meet their conditions, you can have your car serviced at any Seat garage in Oldham without affecting the warranty. A good reliable garage will use original parts and consumables, update your service record, ensure all bills and receipts are kept and perform all the manufacturer’s specified procedures.

Quality Of Garage Service

Seat Garage Oldham Reception

The quality of service is also a big concern with owners who have relatively new cars. The quality of spare parts and the skills of the mechanics working on your vehicle are very important. There is a non-proven belief that an independent garage is cheaper because they are not as skilled as a dealership, they cut corners and they use cheaper parts. Once again, not true! If you are using a garage you have confidence in, it should not be an issue.

If you choose to use an independent Seat specialist in Oldham, you will not have to worry about the quality of service. As a matter of fact, they hire mechanics that have been trained by the manufacturer or have worked at a dealership in the past. Most of these mechanics have years of experience and are very familiar with the standards and procedures to give your vehicle a great service. In many cases, you might find the garage offers two different services to meet your needs. One is for cars still under warranty and the other for all other vehicles. Whichever service you need, you can rest assured you will get comprehensive checks and the very best quality repairs and parts.

Your Seat Resale Value

If you use an official dealership to service your vehicle, you can guarantee it will help to keep the value of your car. However, any potential buyer will be more concerned as to whether you have had the vehicle serviced in the correct time or mileage as specified by the manufacturer.

Any damage caused by an accident or collision or if you have had any major repairs are also points of interest. If you use a reputable independent garage for services and repairs, you can count on not losing value on resale. Keep in mind, as your car ages, the service history will become less important, especially if your car is 5 years or older.

Transparency

The term Back Street Garage conjures up some unpleasant thoughts. If you are considering using one of these establishments, you could experience inflated bills, unnecessary work performed on your car and in some cases, the vehicle leaving the garage in a worse condition than when it came in.

At Volkmaster transparency is the cornerstone of our business. Absolutely no work is performed without first consulting with the customer. Our customers are given recommendations and fully detailed explanations as to why the work should be done. We will not start any work without first calling the customer and receiving the green light and it’s fine to answer no. Customer care is very important to us. Our reputation is built on transparency, low costs and high-quality workmanship as testified to by our countless positive customer reviews. You can view direct customer reviews and our Google and Facebook reviews are dotted throughout the site. Without excellent transparency, our business could not survive.

There is no doubt that servicing your Seat through an authorized Seat dealership will give you excellent service. The downside, the cost is not always… ideal.

Also, if you need warranty repairs, you will need a dealership. Outside of that, you can use any reputable garage for your Seat service in Oldham and receive great quality service at a much lower cost and excellent customer care as a bonus!

  • Definitely recommended - will be going back. Great company. Took my van in today - explained that i wanted to wait whilst the repairs were done - they had a technician on the van straight away. Work was completed quickly and efficiently whilst I waited in reception. A really nice bunch of knowledgable people providing a value for money service. I will definitely be going back, and would recommend.

    I’ve had cambelt, water pump, service and ac service done at Volksmaster Oldham and the service was fantastic. I had plenty of questions regarding my car which Ryan answered all of them and I was kept informed on the progress of the work carried out. I’ll be using Volksmaster again and would recommend to anyone. Thanks again guys 👍

    Recently took my Q3 to VM Oldham due to a problem with the windscreen washers. Problem quickly identified and resolved and I was able pick up the car within a couple of hours of dropping it off.
    As ever cost was very reasonable and I was given a full explanation of what the problem had been and how it had been rectified.
    Once again great service from my first choice garage.

    I couldn’t ask for a better service than Volksmaster. I’ve been taking my car there for the last 5 years and always felt so looked after. This last couple of weeks they’ve sorted a few issues with my car for me, the time frame and level of service totally exceeds expectations. I would never take my car to another garage. Can’t recommend enough.

    Despite the cost very happy with the service I received last week for the condenser to be replaced on my VW Polo. Air con is working very well. Competitively priced despite the initial shock to my pocket! Even washed my car for me as well. 🙂 thank you

    I've been using Volksmaster for approx 7-8 years, (have used both the Oldham and Bury branch). Over the years the experience has always been top notch. Fantastic service, professionalism, great knowledge and honesty from all the staff who work there. I cannot recommend Volksmaster highly enough, thanks Mike, Steve, Dawn, Samantha and the rest of the team.

    Great to see the VW experts to work on my Winnebago Rialta which is half VW half Winnebago. First visit source a cambelt from overseas as it was very rare. Today they carried out a full service, MOT, and fitted the broken seat belt. ( Which was a bit of a job). And to top it all cleaned up months of lockdown storage moss. Thank you to the great team.

    Amazing customer service, couldn't do enough for me, very friendly and eager to help. Car went in for major service and MOT at 8am and by 2pm had a phone call to say was ready to collect. The car did need work doing which they did within this time frame! Speedy turn around. Marie and Danny contacted me to explain the faults found thoroughly and nothing was too much of a bother for them; so so helpful! Thank you so much to you both! Could not fault you or this garage at all. Highly highly recommend.

  • Very professional. Main dealer knowledge and customer care but way way cheaper. Second time we've used them for our cars. For Vw/Audi/Skoda etc they know anything that can go wrong and the cost effective way to fix it. Very useful to have them on board. This time it was our Audi S3 which is back to as-new condition. Thank you to the team. Highly recommended.

    Great service. They advised they could book me in on a Thursday after my Audi Q7 had a suspension failure. I dropped the car off on a Tuesday because it was virtually un driveable and by Wednesday they had given me a price and repaired the car.

    I'll be dropping the car off for a full service in the future. Natalie and Nathan were great!

    What an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish.
    Ryan even goes to the trouble of taking pics to show you without being asked. Having had my last car looked after by a main dealer (not the best experience) Volksmaster is like a breath of fresh air!

  • I would highly recommend Volksmaster , very knowledgeable and fairly priced, I like the fact that time is taken to explain what any faults are and keep the defective parts to sow you,and that no unnecessary work is carried out without talking to the customer firs.
    Great bunch of lads
    Thanks Volksmaster.
