New car warranties

Prior to 2003, unless you had your car serviced by a ‘main dealer’, you would invalidate the manufactures warranty. Thanks to a mass legislation change, this rule no longer stands. As the vehicle owner and the one that pays the bill, you can use an independent and affordable garage like us. We can service, repair and maintain the newest cars, without invalidating the manufactures warranty.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most frequently asked vehicle servicing questions, answered by our experts!

What is the difference between a service and an MOT test?

While an MOT is designed to check whether or not your car or vehicle is safe enough to drive on public roads. a vehicle service is designed to maintain the mechanical aspects of the vehicle and get it running at its very best.

How often should you service your car?

It’s recommended by manufacturers and mechanics that a car should be serviced every 12,000 miles or every 12 months – whichever happens first. This is to maintain it safely and keep it in good working order. Some vehicles will feature a self-diagnostic system that will tell you when your car is ready for a service. Do not ignore any warning lights, even if your car hasn’t travelled the 12,000 miles.

There are several things you can do yourself in between services, such as checking tyre pressure and the engine oil, to keep your car in good working condition.

Is a car service a legal requirement?

No, a car service is not a legal requirement. This is unlike an MOT test, which is a legal requirement and is needed to drive your car legally on the roads. However, a car service is extremely important as it is much more thorough than an MOT. It will highlight any wear and tear issues before they become bigger and more expensive issues.

How long will my vehicle service take?

Most services will take several hours to complete, but it depends on how many issues there are with your vehicle. Our team will call you when it’s time to collect.

Can I book a service and MOT at the same time?

Yes! In fact, we would recommend booking them at the same time, as it makes it much less likely you will forget either of them. It also saves you from making two trips for each.

What do I bring to my car service?

To get yourself and your car ready for the service, make sure you bring with you:

  • The car service book, if you have it. If you do not have it, don’t panic – the garage will be able to update this online.
  • Make sure your car is clean. We would advise emptying your car of any rubbish and if possible, cleaning inside and out so the mechanic can always easily see what they ar looking for. In particular, ensure you have emptied your boot so the mechanic can get to the spare tyre.
