Servicing



We offer a wide range of servicing options, all tailored to you and your cars needs



Why should you have your car regularly serviced?

Vehicles, much like ourselves require TLC to keeping running smoothly. There are many moving parts on them, which require lubricating and checking for wear or damage. Safety When a car is serviced all the major components are checked for wear and tear. Preventative maintenance means that it is more likely that a problem will be picked up long before either a breakage occurs or a component fails. Saves You Money By having your car regularly serviced and maintained it will maintain its efficiency and fuel economy and so keeping your pennies in your pocket. Regular servicing also spreads the cost of essential jobs across time, for example, if we notice that your brake discs are getting low and will need replacing in say, 2000 miles we advise you at the time of service, so you can budget accordingly. Moving parts that require lubrication (e.g. prop shaft joints) may dry out and seize if left, so you’ll end up with a bill for a whole new part and the labour to fit it. Far better it being lubricated by us at a regular service. Full Service
