Mechanic doing Car Service

How Often Should you Service your car?

We have our own workshop at Eurodrive and service hundreds of cars every year,  including our fleet and customers cars. If you would like to book your car in for a service with one of our mechanics please get in touch with us today. Below you will find the out of why it’s important you service your car. 

Your car can become an important part of your life, whether you use it to commute to work, weekly family shop,  or everywhere including your holiday. When you think of how much you rely on your car these reasons alone are enough to make sure that your car is regularly serviced to ensure it is always in good working condition. It is recommended that you get your car serviced every year or 12,000 miles according to the manufacturer’s guidelines. Most vehicles have a service light which will come on when it is time for your car to have a checkup.

Why Car Servicing is Essential

Many car owners will rarely ensure that their car is checked for faults unless they have a breakdown or a dreaded MOT. No matter the age of your car, having a regular service will ensure that all vital components remain in their best working condition. This is why here at Eurodrive we ensure all vehicles are serviced regularly. The condition of a vehicle dictates a smooth ride, prolongs the life of a car, and increases overall safety. This routine maintenance is a small price to pay to ensure the safety of our customers, as your safety is our number one priority. 

Benefits of Regular Servicing

  • Regular servicing reduces the risk of breakdowns.
  • It reduces repair costs by avoiding major repair bills.
  • Regular servicing can lower accident occurrence.
  • It will guarantee better fuel consumption.

What is checked at a service:

There are different types of services and many car dealerships may send you leaflets encouraging you to go for a winter or summer check up. These are a great idea and will make sure you won’t run into any unnecessary problems. 

Servicing checks wear and tear on your vehicle, whereas an MOT provides a technical safety inspection of the vehicle. A service allows essential checks to the core components of any vehicle, it ensures they’re running properly and to identify any need for replacement parts or fluids. Typical checks include the braking system and suspension to make sure that these vital parts don’t let you down when you need them most.

All of our vehicles are checked in and out by our team, where we regularly check oil levels, washer fluid and much more. Every vehicle is serviced at regular intervals (as recommended by the manufacturer). We have our own mechanics who work hard to ensure that all of our vehicles are suitable for all journeys. Alongside servicing our own vehicles we also look after customers vehicles.
