Car Service Pricing

The importance of Car Servicing

A service allows mechanics to examine your car and perform general maintenance services such as an oil change and fluid replacement.

Taking your car in for its routine service will greatly extend its lifespan. New oil will prevent engine damage over time whereas other fluid replacements will improve your vehicle’s performance and safety.

A regularly serviced vehicle will sell for a higher amount than a vehicle that was rarely serviced. This is because the buyer can be assured that the car has been properly cared for.

 

When to service your vehicle?

We recommend that you get your vehicle serviced at least once a year. This will allow your vehicle’s fluids to be changed, extending the vehicle’s life.

Routine servicing will also allow mechanics to have a good look at your vehicle, identifying any problems. If a problem is identified, the mechanics can give you quality advice on how the problem can be dealt with.
