What's included in a car service?

All services will involve visual checks on your car, looking for wear and tear and external damage — much like an MOT.

Checks during a vehicle’s service normally include the engine oil, oil filter, lights, tyres, bodywork, exhausts, brakes, steering, fluid and coolant levels, suspension and battery, but these will vary depending upon the service type required.

How much does a car service cost?

Interim service From £125 + VAT
Full service From £150 + VAT
Major service From £200 + VAT

Please remember that the cost of the service won’t include certain parts if they need replacing.

How long does a car service take?

As a rough guide, an interim service will take around one and a half hours. A more comprehensive service requires more checks and will take longer, normally around three hours.

Our fully equipped workshops can handle all of your motoring needs with significant savings against main dealer prices.

MOT Test (Ministry of Transport Test)

Think of the MOT as a legally required mechanical check-up for your car to ensure that all the major parts do what they’re supposed to and the car is safe to use on the public road.

When does a car need its first MOT?

A car doesn’t have its first MOT until its third birthday. After that, the test must be performed annually. If a car fails the test on its MOT due date, it must not be driven. If a car is driven without an MOT, its insurance is invalid and its owner can be fined up to £1000.

We are happy to manage the MOT process for you and we have availability most days (except weekends) to obtain the correct MOT certification.

Before the official MOT inspection, we will carry out the following visual checks to ensure the vehicle has the best chance possible of passing the MOT, but hidden items are not possible to detect at this stage.

  • All your lights are working properly, including turn indicators and fog lamps if the car has them
  • Tyres for legal tread depth and the correct inflation pressure, including the spare if the car has one
  • Windscreen wiper blades aren’t torn or damaged in any way
  • All fluids are at the necessary level
  • There are no cracks or chips in the central portion of the windscreen and all light lenses are intact
