We recently surveyed over 2,500 Brits to find out the 30 most tedious tasks we wish we could do in 30 seconds and asked the respondent to choose each answer that applied to them.
With 46% of the vote, selling their car was top of the list. Whilst we can provide a free online valuation in less than 30 seconds, it would be impossible to sell your car in that time. Nevertheless, our simple three-step process does allow you to sell your car in less than an hour at one of our 450+ branches.
The second most popular thing that people wish they could do in 30 seconds was painting a room (32%), followed by trying to book the perfect holiday (31%) and cooking dinner (30%).
The research also revealed that 83% of us put off more tedious tasks because they take too long. We also found that 63% of Brits would spend more time with their family if the tedious tasks in life took less time, whilst 38% would get some fresh air on a walk and 24% would put time to good use and learn a new skill.
