Car Servicing Sherborne
We provide honest and frank service assistance when servicing your car. If you are having a full service at the same time as an MOT then we provide the MOT for free.
A motor vehicle service is a series of maintenance procedures carried out at a set time interval or after the vehicle has travelled a certain distance. The service intervals are specified by the vehicle manufacturer in a service schedule and some modern cars display the due date for the next service electronically on the instrument panel.
The completed services are usually recorded in a service book which is rubber stamped by the service centre upon completion of each service. A complete service history usually adds to the resale value of a vehicle.
Mechanical parts that may cause the car to cease transmission or prove unsafe for the road are also noted and advised upon. In the United Kingdom, few parts that are not inspected on the MOT test are inspected and advised upon a Service Inspection.
There are different types of services that we offer, they are broken down into basic, interim and full.
A basic service includes:Lights, windscreen wipers, battery condition, exhaust condition , tyre tread and pressure, full brake, steering, shock absorber and suspension check.
An interim service should be completed every 6 months or every 6,000 miles (this is a rough guide and does depend on the type and model of your vehicle), this includes checks of the following: Lights, Windscreen wipers, Battery condition, Charging system, Exhaust condition, Tyre tread and pressure, Full brake check, Steering check, Shock absorbers check, Suspension check, Oil and oil filter replacement, Fluid levels check and top up, Brake fluid, Anti-freeze coolant, Windscreen wash and Power steering fluid.
A full service should be completed every 12 months or every 12,000 miles (again depending on the make and model of your vehicle), this includes everything that is included in an interim service plus the following extras: checking of all oil and air, fuel, carbon and pollen filters.
If you book in a full service at the same time as an MOT then the MOT is free.
