Ever wondered why your garage repair bills are so high? Well you can blame the rates for that. Labour rates have soared in recent years, as a new survey from Warranty Direct has shown that the average labour rate is now at a staggering £83 per hour. It’s also been shown that the rates depend on which county you live in, so people in Surrey and paying £98.27 per hour on average – which is ridiculous.

There’s good news if you live in Powys, Wales, as motorists there only have to shell out £56.46 per hour.

It just goes to show how expensive owning a car has become and, if you’re not careful, how much extra money you could end up paying if you don’t do your research.

Keep savvy out there and find out where’s the most respected place for the most reasonable price.
