Oil Service? Interim Service? Full Service?
Do you actually know what you are getting when you are offered any of the above services? Most garages offer these set schedules, but if you compared what they include you would be surprised to see how different they really are. This can make it difficult to compare prices, if one full service cots £99 & another costs £199 you can be sure that you are not getting the same service.
To maintain the efficiency & safety of your vehicle it should be serviced at regular intervals. Intervals vary for each make & model of vehicle, refer to your service book or contact us for information on the correct type of service due & manufacturer specified intervals. The service parts we use are only from reputable suppliers made to O.E standards, if required genuine manufacturers parts can be used. Changes in legislation in 2003 mean that it is not compulsory for a vehicle to be serviced by the main dealer, providing the manufacturer service schedule is adhered to services can be carried out by any garage without voiding your vehicles warrantee.
It is important to check when getting quotes from garages for servicing that you find out what grade of oil they are including for the price. There are a lot of garages that quote using a cheap grade of oil that is unsuitable for most modern engines & once they have the vehicle on site they inform you that you need a more expensive grade.
When we quote our customers we quote specifically for the vehicle so there will be no hidden surprises once you are booked in. We pride ourselves on being transparent when it comes to quoting our customers & ensuring they are fully informed.
Important: Timing belt / Cam belt
It is vital that these belts are replaced in accordance with the manufacturers recommended intervals, failure to replace them could result in the belt breaking, if this happens it can cause detrimental damage to your engine, resulting in very expensive & extensive repairs. Replacement intervals vary widely depending on vehicle make & model, refer to your service book for manufacturers specified intervals. If you are unsure when your particular vehicles timing belt / cam belt is due for replacement, we will be happy to find out for you.
If the water pump is driven by the cam belt / timing belt we advise replacement at the same time as this is likely to have been on the vehicle the same length of time as your cam belt / timing belt and if this fails could cause the same damage as the belt snapping.
If your vehicle is fitted with a timing chain, these are generally maintenance free, however if the vehicle is not serviced regularly (especially oil changes using the correct grade of oil) this can cause premature wear / failure of the timing chain & other components.Book Now Go to top
