Is a car service worth it?
Keeping up to date with servicing your car is the best way to make sure any problems are caught early enough, so they can be repaired with minimal hassle and cost. This can help ensure the resale or part exchange value of the car is maintained, as well as its condition.
Plus, if you get regular services, your car is more likely to be efficient, potentially saving you money on fuel bills too.
How often does a car need a service?
Ideally, you should have your car serviced at least once a year, but you may need more regular servicing if you drive a lot of miles. Remember, every car is different and will have different requirements when it comes to servicing and maintenance.
Most manufacturers will have a recommended car service schedule for their individual makes, models and trims. So it’s best to consult their guidelines first.
Is it illegal to not service your car?
No. Unlike keeping your tax, insurance and MOT up to date, servicing your car is not a legal requirement.
However, it is highly recommended that you have your car serviced annually to keep it running safely and efficiently.
How can I find out when my car service is due?
Your service history in your vehicle’s service book should be updated every time your car is serviced. That way, you can just check your service book to see when the car was last serviced.
This also helps prove you’ve kept up with the maintenance of your car when it comes to selling or part exchanging the vehicle.
What do I need to bring to a car service?
There are a few key things you’ll need to take with you to the car service centre for your booking.
• Service Book – During your car service, your car will be checked in dozens of ways and these will need to be logged in your service book. Your service book will also contain information from your car’s last check, which servicing technicians will need in order to complete your service.
• An empty boot – During a full service, the technicians will have to check the tread on your spare tyre, which is usually underneath your boot. Arriving with an empty boot makes it easier for the technicians to get to the tyre.
• Alloy wheel keys or locking nuts – During your service, the technicians will need to remove your wheels to check the steering and suspension. If you have alloys, this will require you to provide alloy wheel keys or locking nuts to assist with this.
How long does a car service take?
Your service time will differ, depending on which type of service you have booked. If you have an interim service, you can expect it to take around half an hour. If you’ve booked a full car service, it could take up to three hours or more.
