Why You Should Use BookMyGarage to Book the Best Car Service Near You

Comparing car services can be tough. Each garage offers different servicing options and their checklists often vary - even for the same service. This makes it hard to be sure you’re booking the best deal when you try and compare car service prices by ringing around garages.

On top of that, it's a time-consuming and stressful way to book a service.

BookMyGarage simplifies that process. We make it easy for you to book the best deal on an interim, full or major service near you. Every garage listed on our comparison site uses our industry-standard service schedule, so you can always compare their prices ‘like-for-like’. If you’re looking for the cheapest car service near you, this is the best way to make sure you book the best deal.

Plus, you get instant prices from dozens of garages near you all in one place. That makes the process so straightforward!

Our comparison tool doesn’t just show you car service prices, it also displays:

  • Which industry qualifications the garages have
  • Which schemes they are members of
  • Real, unfiltered user reviews and ratings
  • What other repairs the garages offer
  • Which makes of cars they work on
  • The proximity to your address (to help you find your closest garage)
  • Any special deals and offers they provide
  • Their opening times
  • And more.

This allows you to make the most informed decision about your servicing options.

 

Why Should I Book a Car Service?

Regular maintenance is essential for keeping your car in good condition. Every vehicle suffers a certain level of wear and tear during normal use. If you don’t bother with car servicing, parts will deteriorate over time and lead to expensive repair bills and stressful breakdowns. 

Book a car service today to prevent this. Not only will it help you save money in the long run, but catching problems early also allows you to complete the repairs on your terms. Rather than waiting until something breaks and having to pay the first repair quote you receive, you can shop around, compare garages to find the best price and get the problem fixed whenever is convenient for you.

Not only that, but a full service history makes a vehicle more desirable when you look to sell it. In fact, your car could be worth up to 20% less if you don't have one.

A full service history proves to buyers that you have looked after your car, and that it is likely to be in better condition as a result. This gives them the confidence they need to pay the full value of your vehicle.

FAQs

How Often Should I Service My Car?

You should always follow the service intervals specified in your vehicle handbook. Most manufacturers recommend booking a full service every 12 months or 12,000 miles - whichever comes first. They may also recommend booking interim and major services, as well as oil and filter changes, at other intervals.

The frequency of servicing depends on two factors:

  • Your driving style
  • Your yearly mileage

If you are an aggressive driver or you travel more than 25,000 miles a year, you may wish to service your car more often. Similarly, if your car sits around for long periods of time, you may wish to service it more often to protect it against the negative effects of disuse.

We recommend servicing your car at the following intervals:

  • Interim Service every 6 months or 6,000 miles (if you have a high yearly mileage)
  • Full Service every 12 months or 12,000 miles
  • Major Service every 24 months or 24,000 miles

 

How Long Does A Car Service Take?

Each car service takes a different length of time, due to the differing numbers of checks. On average, a car service takes:

  • Around 1 and 1/2 hours for an interim service
  • Around 3 hours for a full service
  • Around 4 hours or longer for a major service 

If the mechanic finds extra faults, the repair time will take longer.

 

How Much Does a Car Service Cost?

The cost of a service will depend on the engine size of your car and the rates that each individual garage charges. It will also depend on the type of service that you choose as they get more expensive as you go down the list (starting with interim as the cheapest service and major being the most expensive).

Our directory features thousands of independent, franchise and fast-fit garages and we make it easy for you to compare and save on the cost of your car service. Simply enter your vehicle reg and postcode and choose the best deal at a garage on the list to book your appointment.

 

What is a Car Service?

A car service is a routine health check for your vehicle, completed by a local garage. A mechanic inspects various parts of your car, checking for excessive wear and tear and recommending repairs where needed.

A car service is the best way to keep your car in good condition and helps to avoid expensive repairs and breakdowns. Some of the items assessed in a car service are:

  • Tyres
  • Oil
  • Filters
  • Brakes
  • Timing Belt
  • Windscreen Wipers
  • Exhaust
  • Suspension
  • Steering System

 

What is an Interim Service?

  • Usually undertaken for high mileage drivers who cover upwards of approx. 25,000 miles per year.
  • Recommended to be carried out between annual services, roughly twice per year
  • Covers 25 items including an oil change, testing main moving parts and brake fluid top-up

 

What is a Full Service?

  • Ideal for drivers who tend to cover up to around 12,000 miles per year.
  • Recommended once per year, or every 12,000 miles (whichever comes first)
  • Includes a wider range of items (comprehensive checks, refills and replacements) and helps to ensure trouble-free driving.

 

What is a Major Service?

  • Recommended every 24 months, or 24,000 miles (whichever comes first)
  • Highest level of service, covering the most checks, refills and replacements of any type of service. It essentially includes an overall check of every aspect of your vehicle so is a vital bi-yearly car service.

 

Is it Cheaper to Book an MOT and Service Together?

Many garages near you offer a discount on their MOT price when you book a car service at the same time. That means booking an MOT and service together can make it much cheaper to keep your vehicle in good condition - so long as you choose a garage that offers a great deal.

 

Should I Book an MOT and Service at the Same Time?

You can see several benefits when you book your MOT and service at the same time. These include:

 

Convenience. Booking an MOT and service at the same time means your car gets the right maintenance without you finding time for separate appointments. This keeps your car on the road for longer and ensures your life stays on track. 

Lower Cost. When you book an MOT and service at the same time, you may be able to secure an even lower price. Many garages offer an MOT discount when you combine it with a car service. Plus, the more thorough the service, the bigger the discount can be. Compare garages near you to see how much you can save on your car maintenance.

Reduced Chance of Breaking Down. An MOT pass certificate ensures that your car is legal for the year to come, but booking a car service at the same time offers even greater peace of mind. It is far more detailed than the MOT test, so you get a better picture of your vehicle’s condition if you book them both at the same time.

 

If you’re looking for the above benefits from your car maintenance, then you should book an MOT and service at the same time. Enter your reg and postcode to compare garages near you and book the best deal.

 

What Are the Benefits of a Mobile Car Service?

Convenience - Rather than having to find time to take your car to a garage and then trying to keep your life on track without it, you can have your car service completed at a location that works best for you. This could be your driveway or a car park at work during your normal day. This helps you avoid disruption.

Flexibility - You may be able to book a mobile car service on a weekend, evening or even overnight, depending on the mobile mechanics in your area. If your schedule doesn’t really accommodate servicing at a traditional garage, this can make your life easier.

Transparency - You get to see what is happening during your mobile car service at all times. This makes it easier to trust the quality of the work and gives you the peace of mind that all the checks have been completed to the highest standard.

Cheaper - A mobile car service involves less overhead costs and expenses, so they are often at least competitively priced against, if not cheaper than most local garages.

 

If you think a mobile car service will benefit you, enter your vehicle reg and postcode to compare instant prices from mobile mechanics near you.
