The purpose of servicing a vehicle is to ensure that the vehicle is healthy.  This includes various checks of the cars, tyres, brakes, suspension and much more. Depending on level of service, there may also be service parts changed such as air filter, spark plugs, fuel filters and pollen  filters.  Servicing a vehicle regularly will mean problems are spotted early, and resolved for a much smaller cost than if the problem escalated.  

A small investment in routine servicing, offers an excellent return on investment due to:

  • Reduced cost of repairs over the vehicle's life
  • Reduced unforeseen breakdown risks
  • Reduce vehicle time off the road
  • Less likelihood of accidents
  • The potential for greater fuel economy
  • The possibility of increased product life (e.g. tyres last longer, brakes disks do not become scored)
  • Less inconvenience and less unforeseen expense


If you are unsure whether your car needs a service, or what kind of service you require, feel free to speak to our friendly reception staff who will be happy to point you in the right direction.
