Frequently asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Q. My car costs me so much anyway, would coming to a Gals Garage experience be a good investment?
Absolutely! An experience at a Gals Garage costs less than a tank of fuel and is definitely an investment in your safety and your finances. Between the mechanical side of things and the financial & insurance aspects, you are bound to learn invaluable tips which will saving you money and time!
Q. I don’t think I need to know all this mechanical stuff. I have Roadside assist and my dad/brother/boyfriend/husband/ex takes care of my car; why would I want to break a nail learning how to change a flat tyre?
From a mechanical point of view, the Gals Garage experience simply offers a choice to the woman who doesn’t want to be dependent on anyone for every squeak she hears emanating from her car; and from a financial angle, it allows women to wholly take charge of their financial decisions when it comes to buying/selling their wheel. That said, even if your leading man is kind enough to ensure your car is mechanically sound, you still need to be informed and knowledgeable about how it performs and all associated costs of ownership. Remember, your gallant chap might not always be available to be of assistance (read out with the boys, watching a live game) which is why your knowing the basics would be of benefit to you. We also offer sound financial and insurance know how which every modern women needs for her own sense of financial independence, even if she might have the power to dip her manicured paws into his deep pockets!
