When is my car service due?

As a rule of thumb, your car needs to have a full car service every 12,000 miles or every year – whichever comes sooner.

Deciding When To Service Your Vehicle

In between service intervals, you can have general check-ups, such as our Essential Car Care and Interim Servicing. These will help to ensure your vehicle is kept in the best condition possible. We also provide manufacturer servicing for all the major makes and models using the manufacturers’ official service schedules to check when your service is due, and which type of service is needed. Regular servicing will help keep your car running smoothly. It also can identify potential problems early on, and reduce the risk of them developing into more serious and expensive problems in the future. Regular car servicing is a basic, but vital, way you can help to stay safe on the road. Many modern cars are now fitted with on-board computers that can keep track of when your car service is due. If your car has this or any other self-diagnostic features, we advise you not to ignore warnings that flag up – even if they occur before the 12 months or 12,000 miles mark has been reached.

Types of service:

We have a full range of servicing options, to match every car make and model, and also interim services to keep your car running smoothly between full services.
