When is my service due?

Each car has a specific service schedule in its service book. As a rule, most manufacturers will have a service schedule that is split into different service levels. For example:

Full service – Every 12 months (c 10,000 miles).

Major service – Every 24 months (c 20,000 miles).

Most modern cars have a built-in service alert system that alerts you when your next service is due. It is common for dashboard notifications to appear in such a situation.

If you are unsure about what services your vehicle needs, please speak with a member of our team today. We are always available to help.

What happens during a service? Is there anything you check or replace?


Lights & Visibility: We check your car’s lighting system for faults and make sure it works optimally. All windows, mirrors, registration plates, and wipers are inspected for defects or weak points.


Under Bonnet: The engine of your car is thoroughly inspected for faults and leaks. Additionally, the air and oil filters, drive belts, and spark plugs of your vehicle may need to be replaced if necessary.


Vehicle Interior: During this service, we check your horn, hazard lights, seatbelts, and air conditioning for proper operation. A diagnostic system check is also performed to identify any highlighted problems.


Steering, Drive & Suspension: We inspect every component of your drive system, including wheel joints, gaiters, and bearings. We will also check your shock absorbers on the front and rear wheels, in addition to wheel alignment.


Under Vehicle: We remove your vehicle’s trays and inspect your transmission for leaks, corrosion, and faults. Before draining the oil and replacing trays, our technicians inspect all fuel lines.


Tyre Inspection: A tread and pressure check is performed on all your tyres, including your spare wheel. We also inspect your wheels for corrosion or weakness.


Braking: Our team inspects your braking system thoroughly, including discs, pads, and surrounding components.


Additional: We check your brake fluid and antifreeze levels before refilling your engine with oil. After that, your service history will be updated.

    These guys were our saviours on Friday when we had a flat tyre. They mounted the spare, checked the pressures and then gave advice on where to find a replacement as they didn't stick our size. When I went to settle up they refused to take payment. Friendly, helpful staff who made our problem disappear.

    I come to these guys whenever I need to have my tyres checked or changed. They are always very busy but still manage to be cheerful. Sometimes I have had to wait so I always make sure that I have something to read/do. They work so hard that at times they forget to eat or drink.

    It can be daunting as a woman on her own going to sort out new tyres, I need not to have worried.The guys were so friendly and helpful, and fully explained what was needed at a fair price, I was soon safely on my way and will certainly use them again. It was the first time I had been there as I am new to the area.
