FAQs

Q. Which car service should I choose?

Our three levels of service are designed to meet the varying needs of cars no matter their age, condition or history.

Interim Service - 6 month vehicle service

This 6 month, 40-point service is designed for the high mileage car user, or where the manufacturer recommends more frequent checks. This service helps maintain your vehicle and prevents unforeseen faults. Included are an oil and filter change and a wide range of checks on the fundamental items.

Full Service - 12 month vehicle service

This is a very comprehensive annual service for trouble free motoring. It exceeds most manufacturers service schedules with up to 67 checks and adjustments including changing the engine oil, oil filter and air filter. High quality parts are used such as Castrol Magnatec lubricants. We check and record wear and tear items using a colour code reporting system to give you peace of mind.

Major Service - 24 month vehicle service

This 24 month service covers all areas of essential maintenance. In addition to all the items included on the Full service we cover items that are regularly recommended for replacement every two years. This includes changing the air filter, brake hydraulic fluids, external fuel filter and spark plugs. By having the Major Service you make significant saving on the cost of purchasing these extra items separately.
