Fixed price car servicing
Our streamlined approach to car servicing means booking is simple and straightforward. We offer either interim or full servicing and costs simply depend on your engine size. All prices include labour & vat.
The level of car service we’d recommend will depend on how long it’s been since your vehicle was last serviced and how many miles you have done since then. We generally suggest an interim service around every 6000 miles or 6 months or a full service every 12000 miles or 12 months. If you’re unsure which service is right for your vehicle please contact the team at your local branch for guidance & advice.

Car servicing FAQ's
What service does my car need?
The service we would recommend depends on when your car was last serviced and how many miles you’ve done since then. As a general rule we would recommend an interim service every 6 months or 6000 miles or a full service once a year or around every 12000 miles.
If you own an electric or hybrid vehicle you will need a specialist electric vehicle service.
What to bring to a car service
It’s a good idea to check your service book is in the car, we usually advise you place it on the passenger front seat so our technicians can find it easily and ensure your service is recorded and service book stamped. If you are bringing your car in for a full service then we’ll need to remove your wheels and so will need your locking wheel nut key.
How long does a car service take?
We like to ensure our services are completed fully and thoroughly and would advise that an interim service would take around 2 hours to complete. If your vehicle is booked it for a full service we would normally recommend you leaving it with us for at least an entire morning or afternoon.
Can I borrow a courtesy car when I have my car serviced?
Selected branches do have complimentary courtesy cars available. These can be loaned to customers with a full driving license over the age of 21 years old. If you’d like to reserve the courtesy car then please contact the branch where you have your service booked. Please ensure you bring your driving license with you so we can fill out the necessary paperwork prior to you borrowing our car. Whilst there is no charge for our courtesy car, we do limit the mileage to 20 miles per day.
Do I need the dealership to service my car to protect my warranty?
If you choose to service your vehicle with us then your dealership warranty will be protected.
Despite what some dealerships may tell you, you are not obliged to get your vehicle serviced with them during warranty periods. The EC block exemption regulation 1400/2002 which came into effect in October 2003 means that by law, if independent garages service your vehicle to main dealer specifications using OE “matching quality” parts, your warranty will be maintained.
Should I have an engine flush with my car service?
Our service technicians sometimes recommend Tec-4 engine treatments whilst servicing a vehicle. Recommendation will depend on what your annual mileage is, how long it’s been since your last service and whether you’re experiencing any problems with your vehicle. Tec-4 manufacture a range of highly effective, professional grade treatments that are available in all our branches. Please ask your customer service advisor at your local branch for more details.
