The majority of women hate taking their car to a garage, according to a new poll by Diamond insurance.
It’s something our customer s have been telling us for years when we go to their homes and work places to replace their tyres.
Using etyres, the UKs leading online tyres company, means they can avoid patronising comments and the daunting prospect of being conned into paying for add-on services they don’t need.
Now Diamond, the leading women’s car insurance specialists has confirmed this view after polling more than 4,000 female drivers from across the country for their thoughts on cars and motoring.
The poll found not only do more than half (52%) of women find taking their car to the garage daunting, a third (31%) would prefer the comfort and reassurance of women only garages.
The Diamond Women and Their Cars Survey also showed a further 60% of women find car sales people patronising, and a third would prefer to buy a car from a woman given the choice.
Sian Lewis, managing director of Diamond said, “Today’s generation of female motorists are knowledgeable about cars and many do basic servicing themselves.
“According to our research over 70% of women know how to check the oil, water and tyre pressure on their car.
“However garages still seem to be very much men’s domain and can be intimidating for some women.”
Our female customers enjoy the fact that they get sound advice on what tyres they need, bargain prices and our convenient mobile fitting service, which means they don’t have to wait around in a traditional depot while they get their tyres changed.
etyres saves them time, money and hassle!
