Services Due


Many car owners fully service their car every year or every 12,000 miles – whichever comes earlier. Servicing proactively maintains your car, reducing the risk of a breakdown. Even if it is irregular, servicing can help maintain your car’s lifespan and value.


What is the difference between an Partial Service and a Full Service?

A Full Service is ideal for an annual maintenance programme for your car and recommended every 12,000 miles or 12 months – whichever is sooner. Some manufacturers may recommend more frequent checks. Interim Servicing is ideal for vehicles used for short, mainly urban journeys or for those who wish to service vehicles doing very high mileage more regularly. An Interim Service every 6,000 miles or 6 months helps keep your car safe and roadworthy between full services.

What is an Oil Service?

An Oil Service from  is a great supplement between services, when preparing for a long journey or just for some peace of mind. It includes:

  • Changing engine oil and filter.
  • Checking essential items such as tyres, battery, wipers and lights.
  • Topping up essential fluids like brake, windscreen washer or power steering fluids if required. The Oil Service is not a substitute for a service therefore does not give a ‘service history’ stamp.

Oil & filter change

Over time your engine oil gradually loses its ability to lubricate and protect internal engine components. Friction between moving parts inside your engine causes them to wear. Low, thin or old oil causes the mechanical components to wear much faster. The only way to prevent this is to replace it - usually every 12 months or less for higher mileage vehicles.

Your vehicle’s engine requires the correct grade of oil in order to lubricate and protect the internal parts. The grade of oil for your vehicle is determined by the vehicle manufacturer based on the size, type, general working conditions and operating temperature ranges of the engine. Some cars take special oils, many of which we stock.

Oil filters

In addition to cooling and lubricating the metal surfaces of your car’s engine, oil carries away dirt and metal particles. These contaminants are removed from the oil by the oil filter, but often the oil and filter can become clogged with debris. If engine wear is to be minimised and the engine’s optimum efficiency and life span maintained, both must be replaced.

Fluid top-ups

The following essential fluids will be checked and if required will be topped up:

  • Brake fluid
  • Windscreen washer fluid
  • Power steering fluid
