Are you looking for an auto welder in Birmingham (UK)?
Don't take your welding job to a garage or car dealership until you know...
HOW TO GET YOUR AUTO WELDING REPAIRS AT 30-50% LESS THAN YOUR LOCAL BIRMINGHAM GARAGE...
AND AVOID BEING TALKED INTO COSTLY EXTRA REPAIRS YOU MAY NOT NEED
First, let me introduce myself. My name is Ernie Beckett, and I've been welding
cars and other vehicles since 1980. I worked at the Rover
plant in Longbridge, Birmingham as a welder for over two decades, but just
before the company
started having trouble, I saw my opportunity to get out. I took voluntary redundancy and used the money to set up
my own small welding business - Autoweld.
After listening carefully to feedback from my customers, I quickly discovered
why so many people are reluctant to take their car to a garage nowadays:
(a) They don't want to pay garage prices, and
(b) They are worried about paying extra
for possibly unnecessary work that might be "discovered" by the garage.
Can you remember the last time you took your car to a garage - maybe just
for a check-up, or an MOT? Perhaps like most people, whenever you have to do that you
feel a slight twinge of nerves - because you never quite know what they're
going to find, or how much it's going to cost you.
Plus, here's a useful piece of information, regardless of where you decide
to take your vehicle for welding:
Garages typically charge a minimum of £60 an hour (plus VAT) for a welding job. Take your
car to a dealership and you could be charged as much as £80 an hour (plus VAT) or more.
(Don't take my word for it, go in and get a quote!) So if your job is going to
take three hours at a dealership, you could be paying at least £240... assuming
they will actually finish the job in 3 hours, and not charge you for half a
day, or even the whole day!
The question is...
Why do garages and dealerships charge so much?
Well, there are the usual costs: materials,
lighting, electricity, tax, wages etc. However, garages or dealerships usually
have extra costs: higher taxes to pay, a receptionist to answer calls, a monthly
bonus for the manager, etc -
all of which come out of your £60 or £80 an hour. In other words, if
you take your car to the local garage, you are paying
for the manager's extra skiing holiday this year - aren't you generous?
Now, I'm not a mechanic, I'm a welder. That's why I don't like taking my car to a
garage, because if a mechanic says there's a problem with my car's driveshaft or
joint gaiter, who am I to tell if he's right or not... I wouldn't have a clue!
Actually, the fact that I'm a welder (and not a mechanic) is one of the biggest reasons
bring their welding jobs to me with complete confidence: because I won't be
talking them into extra mechanical work they might not need.
Plus, since I work from my garage at home, my costs are pretty
simple: materials, lighting, electricity, tax, my own wages... oh, and a healthy
of tea or coffee for my customers.
That's why I can easily beat any reputable garage's quote for your welding
job. In fact, I
normally charge between 30% and 50% less than your local garage - for
exactly the same work! As I said, don't take my word for it... take your car to
your local garage or dealership, and get a quote. (Make sure it's a quote,
and not an estimate, since estimates are basically a garage saying,
"Here's what I'm guessing it's going to cost you... we'll work out
the exact cost for you once you've given us your car to work on.")
When you've got their quote, drive your vehicle away... and give me a
call or send me an email. Click here to contact me.
What happens after that? We'll agree upon a time for you to bring your car down,
so I can look at it and give you a free quote. (Click
here if you can't get your car to me.) I think you'll be pleasantly
surprised at my price, and don't forget... the price I quote you is
the price you pay - nothing more. Obviously if you want more work doing, it will cost
you more - but rest assured I won't be talking you into extra work,
or frightening you with stories about how your motor is about to explode if you
don't have this or that done.
When you decide you want me to do the job, we'll agree on a time for you to drop your
motor off so I can work on it. When you come down, you'll even get a free cup of tea or coffee!
So, to sum it all up...
Here's the benefits of bringing your welding job to me,
rather than a garage:
- The price you pay will be typically 30-50% less than a garage or
- You won't need to worry about your car being in for longer than necessary,
or being talked into extra mechanical work you don't really need. The
price I quote is the price you pay, nothing more.
- You will receive a friendly, personal service...
- Your welding job is backed by a full 12 month guarantee...
- A free cup of tea or coffee when you bring your welding job to me! (This
is optional, of course...)
