Where can I get my car serviced?

By David Sholicar

Maintaining your car is vital if you want to make sure that it fulfils its performance potential and has the longest possible lifespan.

Regular servicing is an integral part of this and can also help prevent you from facing hefty bills for repairs in the future.

Having your car serviced once a year and when you reach milestones in your owner’s manual regarding such things as oil changes will prevent problems from occurring in the first place and also help to detect issues early. This can save you money in the long term as well as protect the reliability of your vehicle and ensure that it has the most value when it comes time for you to sell.

Who Can Service Your Car?

Car technology advancements are making servicing easier than ever, but it should still be carried out by a professional who has the qualifications and knowledge to carry out as many as 50 system check-ups and steps to ensure your vehicle stays in top condition.
Cheap, quality car servicing is key to protecting your car - and your cash - and there are various customised car services and packages available to meet your individual needs. At Protyre, for example, we offer three different servicing packages to allow you to choose exactly the right option for you and your vehicle.

Protyre Servicing

Our cheap, quality car servicing options include bronze, silver and gold choices. There is also the option to book your MOT alongside a service and save money in the process.
Our gold service is the full service you need once a year and includes everything from engine, brake disc, alternator and battery checks to inspections of tyres, the radiator, the timing belt and brake pads.
Our silver option is an interim service which can help pick up problems early and includes all of the elements of our basic bronze service as well as inspections of electrical components and more.
You can also book a bronze check-up service to really ensure that your car is in the best possible condition. It is also a great option for business drivers and people who use their cars a lot. It includes all of the basics necessary to ensure your vehicle’s optimum performance, including oil and filter changes, anti-freeze top-ups and battery checks.

Dangers of DIY Servicing

It can be tempting to try to save money by carrying out service checks yourself, but unless you are a qualified mechanic, this can be a major mistake. It used to be fairly straightforward in the past, when cars were much simpler than they are now, but modern vehicles are complicated.

You may miss issues or make mistakes that simply wouldn’t be missed if you opted for cheap, quality car servicing carried out by professionals in a reputable garage. This could not only hurt your pocket but also put you and your family in serious danger.
