2015 Average Labour Rate Survey

2015 Average Labour Rate Survey

29 October 2015

We have created a very short survey to follow up from our 2013 study on average labour rates.

The study surveyed over 2,000 independent garages focusing on hourly labour rates, and concluded that the independent garage sector continued to provide outstanding value for money for consumers across the country.

The study found that throughout the UK, the average labour cost was slightly over £40 for independent garages, the lowest being £32 in Northern Ireland and the highest being £48 in the South East.

We would like to update these statistics to show that independent garages still offer great value for money and generate some positive publicity for members.

Please take the time to complete the survey so we can create an accurate picture across the UK. It includes only 3 questions and will take less than 5 minutes.

Here is the link for the survey: www.surveymonkey.com/r/labourrates

All information will be completely anonymous. We will not collect the name of your business or any other details about your garage.

We will post the results of the survey when we have collected an analysed all responses.

Please call our member helpline on 0845 305 4230 if you need any assistance completing the survey.
