WhoCanFixMyCar.com, the comparison site for drivers looking to find a great local garage or dealership, are delighted to announce that Ford’s dealer network are aiming to bring over 500 Ford Dealers on board.
The move, agreed with Ford of Britain, is the latest in a long line of exciting developments at WhoCanFixMyCar.com, where lead volumes are currently growing rapidly, with almost 9,000 jobs set to be posted this April. That’s nearly 7 times more leads than in February last year.
The introduction looks set to be a fruitful one for both parties; with the Ford Fiesta still the number 1 selling car in the UK it comes as no surprise that Ford are the most frequently listed manufacturer of all.
A win-win approach
Alistair Preston, Co-Founder at WhoCanFixMyCar.com, said,
“We are delighted to welcome the Ford network on board. Speaking frankly, while our lead volumes have grown seven-fold, our garage numbers haven’t kept pace, leaving work on the table in certain parts of the country. It’s not a good experience for our users, but clearly it’s a great opportunity for garages of the appropriate scale and quality. With so many Ford vehicles on the road today, it’s a natural fit for us.”
“Main dealers servicing and repairs are very competitive with the independent or fast-fit alternative as reflected in our data – However, some drivers typically assume that a main dealer service will cost them more. Our system allows local prices – from all outlet types – to be compared side-by-side, along with each party’s USPs – levelling the playing field somewhat. Drivers make their decision based on what matters most to them, whether that’s reputation, price, availability or location.”
Jon Wellsman, Director, Ford Customer Service Division, said: “Digitally savvy motorists are increasingly turning to comparison websites for the best deals on vehicle servicing and repairs.
“By joining WhoCanFixMyCar.com Ford owners can see the competitive offer of our Motorcraft 4+ programme across the UK, together with the assurance of service quality they expect from a Ford dealer, including a warranty on parts and labour, complimentary Roadside Assistance, vehicle washing and collection and delivery.”
