A guide to getting your car serviced

Getting your car serviced annually is important because;

  • It prolongs the life of lots of mechanical components.
  • It improves your vehicle reliability.
  • It keeps you safer.
  • It helps you reduce the risk of unexpected repairs.
  • A service can flag up other problems so you can get them fixed sooner, before they cause more damage.

When you book your car in for a service you have 3 options. A Basic, Intermediate or Full service.

When we get your car in, it goes up on the ramp and we complete a comprehensive, 28 point checklist which includes things like tyres, handbrake operation, suspension, brakes. These checks look at the condition of each item, which we note down on your service sheet. Anything not up to scratch, we’ll get a price and give you a call. It’s up to you whether you’d like the work doing.

As standard, at a Basic service we do an oil and oil filter change, at an Intermediate service we also change your air filter and finally, at the Full service we will also change the pollen filter and fuel filter.

We recommend a cycle of services that mean you get a Full and Intermediate service every 4 years with Basic services in the years between.

Some people choose to have their MOT and service at the same time, others have them at different times during the year to spread the cost, but from as little as £60* you could get your car in tip top condition.

*£60 includes VAT. Servicing prices start at £60 and the price changes depending on the service chosen, the engine size of your vehicle and the oil the engine takes. Please call for a price on the service you need.
