Car owners in Russia have reduced spending on winter preparation

Car owners in Russia have reduced spending on winter preparation

Car owners in Russia began to spend almost half as much on preparing cars for winter. The biggest decline was in the expenses for car service.

According to RIA News, the analysis was carried out by experts of the largest Russian operator of fiscal data "Platform OFD" and service for choosing and buying a car online SberAuto. The study was carried out from September 1 to November 22.

As it turned out, consumer demand this fall fell for almost all categories of goods and services related to preparing a car for the winter. Most of all - by 48% in terms of the number of purchases - expenses for car services decreased. The average check became 24% less compared to the same period last year, and amounted to 4 rubles per visit.

Antifreeze sales were down 16%. On average, Russian motorists spent about 172 rubles on such fluids, which is 3% less than a year earlier. At car washes, the cost of services increased, due to which the average check increased by 3% to 460 rubles, but the sales volume fell by 11%.

At the same time, despite the general decrease in the cost of preparing the car for winter, sales of winter tires increased. The average check for these goods was 14 rubles - 210% more than last year. Sales increased by 5%.

Experts attribute the decline in seasonal demand mainly to dry weather in most regions of Russia, the self-isolation regime and a general drop in the purchasing power of Russians. At the same time, the growth in tire sales, according to experts, may be due to the introduction of mandatory digital marking of this category of goods.
