AftermarketOnline.net has published details of a recent report from the RMI’s Independent Garage Association (IGA), which includes the labour rates charged by garages across the UK.
Perhaps unsurprisingly London was named the most expensive region with average labour rates of £51 per hour, whilst Northern Ireland has cheapest labour rates. The report also shows these independent garage rates are half the price of the rates charged by comparable franchise dealers.
The report surveyed over 2,000 IGA members and from this figure only two were charging more than £90 an hour and the significant majority were charging less than £50 an hour.
