Be In The Know About Auto Repair Pricing
Three Tips to Avoid Overpaying
FACT: A national study done by the Car Care Council, revealed that 9 in 10 women believe they are treated differently at auto repair shops than men are. Here’s why… There's a little known fact that there are two sets of prices at repair shops… one for the uninformed and one for the informed! Unfortunately, women tend to fall in the uninformed category by default, but you can fix that and I’m going to tell you how! Understand that the World Wide Web is your best friend when it comes to not getting taken advantage of when getting your auto repaired.
First - Mention your price expectations up front. This only works if you do your research, having an expected price in mind gives you a bargaining tool.

Second - Want a better price… learn to negotiate! I do this ALL the time. They don’t expect women to negotiate, so once you do, you’ll be treated like anyone else.
Third – In the event that tip 1 and 2 don’t work…get a second option! Be a smart shopper! Arm yourselves with knowledge and you’ll be amazed at the difference it will make when it’s time to pay the bill.
