What is the average cost of a full UK car service?


The average cost of a UK car service is currently around £125. However, this may fluctuate or depreciate depending on which provider you use or which part of the country you're currently situated. Although price is a factor when choosing where to have your car serviced it is also important to choose a garage that has a good reputation. This way, you are ensuring you’re receiving a high-quality service. To find out more about our pricing plans and what we offer visit our website. 

Is a car service really necessary?


It’s generally recommended that a car should be serviced every 12,000 miles or once a year. However, each car is different when it comes to car serving as each car comes with its own set of manufacturing instructions. Therefore, it is important that you check your own car manual for guidance.

Always refer to your car manufacturer’s guidelines for car servicing. Not keeping up with the service schedule could invalidate any warranty that comes with the vehicle.

How car servicing can save you fuel


Although many drivers consider servicing an expense, keeping your car maintained can save you money - and not just in the long run. Whilst servicing your car can help to prevent big problems in the future, it can also save you money on a daily basis by reducing your cost per mile. You can carry out some of the basic service checks yourself. However, it is advised you get a car garage to do it for you. To see our full range of car servicing options visit our website.
