Servicing is an important part of keeping your vehicle in good running order. It can help achieve optimum performance, which could cut running costs and save you money, and it can also make your vehicle safer to drive. As having your car serviced is not a legal requirement, many choose not too, but this is not cost effective in the long run.  

A properly-maintained vehicle is more fuel-efficient, safer and more reliable, and is less likely to result in a breakdown. It limits wear and tear on your vehicle, meaning it will hold its value when selling. Vehicles with a full-service history typically attract more buyers and higher prices.

Cars tend to have an interim service or a full service depending on a timescale, or the number of miles covered up to a certain amount. Generally servicing is carried out as follows:

 Full service is required after every 12,000 miles driven or 12 months.

 Interim service is recommended after every 6,000 miles driven or 6 months.

Both servicing types cover the same elements, with the full service including many more checks on the entire car including:


 Door hinges, catches and locks

 Coolant system checked for leaks

 Starter motor cranking and security tests

 Engine cooling fan

 Operation of throttle checked

 Condition of distributor cap

 Engine and gearbox mounts for wear

 Air filter replaced

 Check front and rear brakes

 All wheel bearings checked for noise

 Check condition of all wheels

 Visual inspections of radiator and coolant pipes


The car service book will be stamped in recognition of the servicing which can be kept and shown as part of your vehicle’s history which is essential when selling the car in the future.
