The service schedule for your vehicle
The service schedule for your vehicle
When getting a service with us we strongly believe in following your manufacturer’s specifications. Your service schedule is dependent on your make and model but also your car’s mileage and age. We’ll look into your car’s service history to see what’s been done before and when. We have a comprehensive service checklist so we’ll find the right solution for your car to keep it running smoothly.
Quality and safety
Getting your car serviced helps to identify potential problems before they become major ones. Essential checks are carried out on things such as your brakes, exhausts and suspension to make sure that these parts don’t break and let you down when you need them. We ensure we use quality lubricants when topping up fluids and our team are all fully qualified to take good care of your car.
Does my car need servicing?
Unlike an MOT, a car service is not a legal requirement, however, it is highly advisable for you to invest in them every so often for safety and maintenance values. For some cars which only get used on a low mileage basis, they can go up to three years without being serviced, however for most cars it is a more regular necessity.
As a general rule of thumb, most cars need servicing every 10-12,000 miles, or every year, but for most cars, the manufacturer will state the time frame suitable between each service. New cars may be able to go up to three years without being serviced. If your car starts showing signs of needing to be serviced, it is highly important that you book your car in for a service with MCP as soon as possible. Some people choose to book in for their car servicing at MCP at the same time as their MOT test as this is generally a convenient time.
Car Servicing – the benefits
As well as the obvious benefit that your car is less likely to experience any major problems in the future, there are numerous other benefits to having your car serviced.
• A smoother running engine,
• increased fuel efficiency,
• more effective brakes and improved handling,
• the car will be more reliable, as issues are not left to become problems,
• it is more likely to retain its value for when you sell it on. If your car has a full service history, it can add thousands on to the value of the car. This is because any potential buyers will be more likely to buy when they can see that the car has been well looked after, and are more likely to trust that it is a good choice of purchase.
What does a full car service include?
During a car service, all the working parts of your car will be thoroughly checked. We will not only check the outside of the car, but also the inside and the inner workings to make sure that everything is working well and running smoothly. We will also warn you of any parts which are wearing out so that you are aware that they may need replacing soon.
MCP Garages try to make it as easy and hassle-free as possible, by offering free pickups and drop offs along with your vehicle service. If you are unsure as to which service you need for our vehicle, contact us 01932 336334 or 336335 and we can let you know.
You may wish to book your car in for a service at the same time as going for an MOT, because this saves hassle and time, and ensure that both are done on a yearly basis.
