No matter how old or young your car is, it does need regular services to keep it running in tip top condition; by using the very latest in engine diagnostics equipment we can accurately detect and repair current and future problems that occur on your car. Not only does this increase the cars performance but it will in the long run reduce cost and the time your car would normally spend off the road.

Generally newer cars will only need a service once a year unless of course, they incur very high mileage or for cars that do lots of short journeys and the engine does not have long enough to warm up properly then more oil and filter changes will be required.

Which service is the best for you?

Interim 6 month service
Designed for high mileage users or cars where the manufacturer recommends more frequent checks. We offer a ‘check up’ for your car to alleviate any future inconvenience. We ensure a wide range of essential checks are undertaken including oil and filter change.

Full – 12 month vehicle service
A full and comprehensive annual service that provides each of our customers with peace of mind and trouble free motoring. We only ever use genuine manufacturers’ parts and high quality lubricants and solutions.

Major – 24 month vehicle service
In addition to all the items included with a full service we also cover all the essential maintenance your car needs to keep it in tip top condition. We will make recommendations for parts that need regularly replacing usually every 2 years. More often than not this results in savings for our customers.
