Servicing and Repairs
We have been servicing and repairing cars for more than 40 years, many of our customers have been coming to us for that long or since they had their first car. We evn have regular customers that drive from Dundee in Scotland for us to service their family car a Range Rover P38 4.6 V8.
Good Old-Fashioned Service
In addition to following Vehicle Manufacturers recommendations regarding service/mileage specifications we also give the car a full check looking for other items that may benefit from maintenance, often finding components that are just starting to fail and frequently allowing reduced cost repairs that would otherwise cost significantly more if allowed to fail completely.
We also advise our customers where improved products, such as higher specification lubricants like fully synthetic products will provide worthwhile benefits to the vehicle and therfore reduce the cost of ownership.
We carry out all services in line with the vehicle manufacturers specifications and using parts that meet their specifications which maintains manufacturers warranties. We stamp service books demonstrating the work that has been completed. Where available we provide a printout of the service schedule corresponding to the vehicle mileage at the time the service is completed.
In addition we also check the vehicle for safety critical faults and advise our customers if there is anything that needs to be repaired or replaced, this is a free addition to the service schedule, we go the extra mile to ensure our customers cars are safe and working correctly.
Many customers are surprised that dealers and regular garages only carry out the work they have asked for! Not knowing that their car may benefit from regular preventative maintenance, a common item missed by dealers and other garages is Air Conditioning and Climate Control Servicing, we regularly have new customers come to us to repair problems with their climate control that would have been prevented by regular servicing of the climate control system, but because the customer didn't know that they need to get this preventative maintenance completed (even though the manufacturers have recommendations for the work) they don't ask for the checks or the work to be carried out. Spending a relatively small amount can save hundreds or even thousands in the long term.
An important part of the service is to check the complete vehicle for fault codes and determine the cause of any faults found, if no codes are present the service interval reminders are reset so that our customers receive a reminder for future service requirements.
