“Yes, Andrew was a fine representative of your company. However I have an issue with the price as detailed below:
Parts included
£210.43 Alternator
£17.69 Alternator drive belt
Subtotal
£54.88 Labour
£228.
12 Parts
Total
£283.00
The cost of the alternator being £210.43 is too high as I obtained this price from West Lancs Autos

Your Quotation - Ref: 39902
Dear david tatlow, Thank you for requesting a quotation.

Type: New Alternator
Vehicle Registration: AJ05DBZ
The vehicle manufacturer has released multiple fitment options for your Alternator. However, we have a detailed sophisticated system which has confirmed the correct unit for your vehicle.
Price £124.90 inc. VAT with Free Delivery & 18 Month Warranty*
As there are multiple fitment, type and quality options for your vehicle available from other suppliers, please be VERY careful when comparing quotes or looking online.

Which as you can see is substantially lower than I paid. This price was also lower than the figure quoted by Clickmechanic.
So, what to make of this? The figure quoted to me ( which I paid) must include a certain degree of loading(profit) for Clickmechanic / the engineer?
So I paid £283 for the labour + alternator + replacement belt. I , as a simple private customer could have bought for £140 or so . Hence I was paying approx. £140 for the convenience of it being replaced. This I was prepared to do because of my circumstances . However ordinarily I would simply have bought the parts and got them fitted by an independent garage. Another figure I was quoted of £326 was even higher -too much for this job.
The concept of clickmechanic is great but I felt that the p[rices weren't completely transparent. I paid over the odds but was pleased to to do so as wanted the car back on the road. The cost of the parts must include a high profit margin . I wouldn't have paid £326 for an alternator replacement on a 13 year old Golf. I would have taken my time and got it done elsewhere. The call out and diagnosis fee of £50 is fine.

Regards,

David Tatlow“
