Younger drivers are prepared to pay extra for the convenience of having their car collected and returned for servicing work.
In fact, the youngest drivers are willing to pay an extra £13 on their service.
A survey by Servicing Stop revealed that 42% of people (47% of women) would prefer collection and delivery than drive to a garage.
Collection and delivery is most popular amongst career focused people aged 31 to 50 - 48% in fact, who are often torn between parenting, working and other commitments.
Oly Richmond, Servicing Stop chief executive, said: “Having the legwork done for you has proved to be so popular that price-conscious drivers aged 17 to 25 are even willing to pay an extra £13 on their service to get the job done, without having to move an inch.”
Servicing Stop offers car servicing, MoT and repairs including free nationwide collection and delivery. It has a network of more than 1,500 garages.
Due to the demand of customers wanting a collection and delivery service the company intends to recruit more garages.
