  • Will this service affect my warranty? - No! Open or Close

    If your car is under warranty you do not have to take it back to the main dealer for servicing or repairs! Government legislation passed in 2003 known as “block exemption” means that an independent garage can now carry out your servicing/repairs and the warranty is still protected. We will only use genuine parts of original equipment standard which means all cars are repaired with approved parts. We will never substitute cheap alternatives. We will never use oil of a lesser quality than semi synthetic.

  • Low mileage users Open or Close

    Our services are so comprehensive that in certain circumstances i.e. “low mileage users” it is possible to have 2 interim services in a row instead of a major – stretching the major service interval to 18 months and therefore reducing costs to you the motorist. If you plan on keeping the car longer than 4 years, it is good engineering practice to replace your engine oil, engine filter, fuel filter and air filter at least once a year.

  • Why is our servicing so cheap? Open or Close

    We only charge you for the parts and service you need! A car service/repair with us can save you up to 60% off of main dealer prices because you are not paying for a sales showroom, courtesy cars or an apparently “Free” valet or collection & delivery service.  On some modern cars external fuel filters are not fitted therefore a replacement is not possible….. So, why pay for something that you don’t need?

  • Additional items required every two and five years Open or Close

    Brake Fluid

    It is recommended by all manufacturers that the brake fluid is completely replaced every two years regardless of mileage as it can seriously affect the braking system and especially the "Anti-Lock Braking System". This service is available for £51.06 plus VAT. Customer to check vehicle history and advise us accordingly.

    Pollen/Cabin Filter

    This should be replaced every two years, as the filter medium is so fine it traps moisture and together with bacteria can grow fungal spores which are then circulated into the car through the air vents. This service is available for £30.00 plus VAT for all cars up to 2,100cc, excluding 4x4, off-road and some specialist vehicles. Customer to check vehicle history and advise us accordingly.

    Antifreeze

    Most manufacturers recommend "blue antifreeze" should be changed every two years and "red antifreeze" (long life type) should be replaced every five years. This service is available for all cars up to 2,100cc, excluding 4x4, off-road and some specialist vehicles. This is available for £42.48 plus VAT in conjunction with a service. Customer to check vehicle history and advise us accordingly.

  • Why come to us? Open or Close

    No repair work is carried out without your prior approval, one of our advisers will contact you at every point to ensure that repair bills do not spiral out of control and you are aware of what is happening with your car.

    Please feel free to compare our service with your vehicle manufacturer and other servicing garages, you will see that our services are more comprehensive, good quality and much better value for money.

    Every car service/repair we carry out is covered by 12 months or 12000 miles parts and labour warranty.
