Hastings Direct - 50% off MOT £27.48 - Booking available in advance - Halfords

Found 11th Dec 2017
I realise this is a little niche, as it is only open to Hastings Direct customers. You will receive an email offering 50% off your MOT at Halfords. (Yes, I am aware that they may encourage extra repairs etc.)

Good deal, if applicable.

Hope it helps.

Not saying it's not a good deal but.. I once went to halfords for a cheap half price MOT, they gave me a list of failures as long as my arm. Took to another garage I trust and they said only one of the failures, a bulb! Was real. Be careful! They said all discs and pads needed changing and the suspension was dangerous. Quoted me best part of £600 I wouldn't go near them with a barge pole.

Fair point, but I did try to point this out. I was only trying to help. Lesson learned.

It is always almost half price …It is always almost half price anyway.https://www.halfordsautocentres.com/mot/mot


OK, back in my box.

MOT posts are usually a bad idea. Anyone who pays anywhere near full price for their annual MOT is just plain daft.
Vauxhall owners get a half price MOT at any Vauxhall branch, and there are loads of deals and other offers available. Google search will find you something near you. Some will prefer to pay full price at a trusted garage, but it still seems daft if you are giving them all your other work as well.

Fair enough, and I thank you for taking the time to reply politely and constructively. My mistake, then, and won't be doing it anytime soon. (I was just trying to help.)
Go to local council testing station, they don't do repairs, mot is always fair. I pay £20 for all my mots cars, bikes, vans etc.. Not a great deal here.

My local council charges more than £20, and don't do bike tests as they do not have the correct equipment to test them.

Don't be daft. I am sure you have made some really helpful posts before, and you showed great humility when this post got the thumbs down. I tend to react and get banned. I must have been banned from HUKD over 20 times!!

Thank you, once again, 'tintowellfan', for taking the time to reply.

Daft, isn't it? I posted as I was trying to help, as people on here as helped me. Never mind, hey? Like I said, lesson learned.

Never give up posting, a deal going negative isn't about you. Next one could be a heatwave.
Note to self: Never post an MOT/Halfords deal.

don't worry about the comments. You thought something was a good deal turned out not so great
after all. Move on to the next deal and hopefully it will be a great deal. Comments posted are to help others
but that shouldn't discourage you from posting another deal.

We all have posted deals we thought were great but turned out not to be or cheaper elsewhere. Move on to the next one where you can help someone.

I gave a piece of advice in first sentence. Stated a fact in second. Never claimed I used a council site for my tests.

So you get your MOT for £20 where? Your post seems to link the £20 MOT to the council testing station. If not, why link it to the OP??
Edit again. Harley Mick, we need to take some chill pills. I also have a Harley, and have done for years. You are as crabbit a bar stewards as I am.

Are you hard of thinking?
I mentioned the council as people said Halfords wanted to do all sorts of repairs, they felt were excessive.
I mentioned how much I pay as the deal isn't a great price in my eyes.
Can you (we) stop posting negative comments to each other, please? There is nothing to be gained, no high ground.

I posted this to help, not to cause arguments. Truce, please ?

have used halfords for years for my MOT's, they usually pass first time or fail on something that I know is boarderline and I know needs work doing anyway.

it's not halfords fault if a bunch of housewives take they clapped out pieces of crap in for an MOT having not done a single shred of maintenance since the last MOT.

But I guess it all depends on what your local place is like, get my tyres down there also, they are invariably the cheapest for branded tyres for my car and they have them replaced in a jiffy whilst I have a free coffee.
I'm a Hastings customer who got the email say I had a gift. Strangely I wasn't expecting to have to spend money to get their 'gift', I'm pretty sure that's not the definition.

Cold from me.
I use my local Halfords (Stockport Green Lane) every year for our car MOTs, never been stung yet. Always pleasant and in some cases, like last year went above and beyond. The bolt holding my battery down had been lost. It was replaced free of charge and car passed it's test.
