The myth of 'free' oil change. There are many promotional stunts with which stations are trying to attract customers. For example: 50% discount, "an oil change – free of charge," etc. This is normal – in today's business environment without advertising would not last long. But it is not always advertised "benefit" is beneficial to the client! Oil change – for free Many have heard and seen the ads on stations or in an individual entrepreneur – "Changing the oil – for free." But few thinks – and at what time they earn? Uncle Peter from a nearby garage of good neighborly relations can you do an oil change for free – it's his hobby, for example. But the service station to earn wages, profits, taxes! Something does not converge, is not it? And it is very easy.
Try to arrive at a station with its own oil and let them to you FREE OF CHARGE to replace him. It will not work. You will be told that an oil change is free only if they use "their" oil – this oil can be kuplennve you in a particular store (and most likely, the owner of the shop the same as the SRT), mozhgut be oil from the barrels that are on special relativity. Not vedis for a free oil change in any case – there is certain conditions for 'free' oil change for the client. Only small-minded people do not realize that the SRT in any case will take its value from the client an oil change – the price of the replacement oil is already included in the price of oil! And there also includes the cost of replacing the oil filter.
But at the same time in 3-4-minutes drive from the station that does not mask the cost of the oil change. And if you count how many eventually will cost "free" oil change in your car oil change and "money" is, in many cases, "fee" oil change will be cheaper! This happens in every city – and the city of Mogilev, and Minsk in, and in Gomel, Vitebsk and, in Brest and in Grodno. You should not be on the "freebie" (not I will repeat the proverb about the mousetrap and cheese). Just consider how much it will cost you service!. Source:
