Al Preston, co-founder of WhoCanFixMyCar.com, said: “It’s always interesting to find out which areas in the UK are the most expensive when it comes to car repairs.
“It’s come as a bit of a surprise to us that London isn’t in the top 10, however that’s probably because there is more competition there than somewhere like Cornwall, which will often drive down the average cost.
“I think many assume that garages have a flat rate dependent on the repair, but it’s not always as simple as that, it just depends how much damage there is, how much the parts cost and how much labour time is needed.
“Regardless of the reasons or the most and least expensive areas to get your car repaired, we would always encourage savvy motorists to use WhoCanFixMyCar.com so they compare quotes and reviews to make an informed choice.”
