ServicingServicing is the best way to care for your car and to ensure you trouble free motoring.

We recommend servicing be carried out every twelve months or 10,000 miles (whichever comes first).

Servicing is not just a 'gimmick' or a way for garages to make money. Annual checks of your car allow your mechanic to build up a picture of which items are wearing out, what issues you may be facing or are likely to face in the future. It also allows fluid levels to be topped up, the oil to be renewed with clean and efficient oil, thus keeping the engine running well and replacement filters avoid blockages and overheating.

Service One

Oil and oil filter change, tyre pressures, lights check, fluid levels and an all round inspection.

Service Two

Oil and oil filter change, air filter, cabin filter, fuel filter, spark plugs or glow plugs, washer fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, tyre pressures, check and adjust brakes as necessary, check gearbox oil level, lights check and wiper blades.

Call us on 01752 255343 for pricing specific to the make and model of your vehicle.



Image of brakesBraking systems vary greatly from car to car and this can be confusing to most people.

Its essential that you keep your brakes in good working order; the difference between stopping safely and having an accident is only a matter of millimeters of material on pads.

Any juddering, slow response, grinding or pulling to one side should all be investigated. Its better to be safe than sorry.

Please call us or pop in if you have any concerns about your brakes, it only takes a minute for us to have a free check of your braking system and advise you accordingly.



exhaust systemA poorly maintained exhaust can lead to high fuel consumption and even an MOT emissions test failure.

Just a simple inspection and repair of broken exhaust parts can save you pounds on your fuel bill and reduce how much you pollute the environment.

If you are concerned about your exhaust or simply want to make sure it is working well, call us to book in for a check.

We can advise on the best way to proceed, be it a full stainless system, a sports exhaust or just the one that came with your car when you bought it!
