Seventy percent of UK drivers prefer to use an independent garage rather than a main dealer when their car needs to be serviced or repaired.

Select Car Leasing, the company behind the survey, says this is because motorists are looking to reduce costs while experiencing a more personalised service.

It has also produced a ‘car servicing index’, which maps the UK cities with the highest number of independent garages. Predictably, London has the most, with Select Car Leasing identifying 557 approved garages.

Cities with the most approved independent garages

  • London: 557 garages
  • Birmingham: 292
  • Manchester: 285
  • Bristol: 270
  • Nottingham: 240
  • Glasgow: 226
  • Leicester: 210
  • Sheffield: 209
  • Leeds: 190
  • Liverpool: 182
