"Would definitely recommend and will be back. Thank you"
Friendly honest service
"Had a major service done on my car. The price was very fair especially compared to other local garages. When I picked it up the lad explained the issues they found . Some of it I didn't understand so he talked me through it and gave me some advice. Some of the work was urgent which I already knew hence me taking it in for a major. Seemed really friendly on return. Look forward to see you in January for some more work to be done ."
Fab staff & efficient
"Very efficient staff. On time for booked MOT. Despite failing they called me to explain fault & then proceeded once I approved. All done in a couple of hours & ready to collect after it had courtesy body wash. My car was certainly cleaner than when it went in. I use Glen Fern Garage yearly & have never had a problem. I would highly recommend for honest & reliable work. Often available to fit in at short notice too."

It’s time for your car's service again - so where do you take your car? The same garage as before - although last time you were worried you were overcharged. Here at BookMyGarage we have 7 garages in Bournemouth for you to choose from, all rated by other car owners and offering fixed prices for their services. You can compare labour rates too, helpful if you’re thinking of additional car repairs you might need. We display transparent prices for car services, but you might want to consider calling our expert mechanics 03304 00 44 39 for independent and unbiased advice if you think you need a costly repair.
How do you choose the best garage for your service?
It’s usually only once a year but it has to be done - so where do you take your car for its service? To the garage round the corner because it’s the nearest, even though you don’t really understand what they tell you? To the place your friend recommends, even though it charges more than most Bournemouth garages? Or to a big, national chain garage - you’d rather support an independent but you feel safer with a big brand? BookMyGarage can give you the confidence to book differently. You’ll find Bournemouth garages near you rated by other car owners, with transparent, immediate details of their prices and services. Booking online takes just one minute, and the garage only sees what they need to know - no unnecessary sharing of your personal details. You and the garage get the full information on the booking, saving you and the garage even more time and hassle.
When should you get your car serviced?
Not everyone is organised enough to know when an MOT is due, but what about a service? The make, age, mileage and average usage of your car all play a part in this question, but in general your car should undergo a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every two years (or 24,000 miles). Some helpful garages apply a sticker to the driver’s door noting the date when the next service is due, but the best thing is to check the owner’s manual which should detail the service history of the vehicle. When you buy a new car or sell your existing one, it’s important to have that service history filled out so that a potential buyer or dealer can see at a glance that the car’s been properly looked after. High mileage drivers who regularly travel outside Bournemouth should consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What are common repairs your car may need?
One of the most common and critical car problems is a slipping clutch. How long a clutch lasts varies depending on the age and model of your car, the conditions you drive in, and the way you drive so the most important thing is to know how to spot a clutch problem when you’re out driving in and around Bournemouth. You might find that the revs (RPMs) suddenly shoot up but the road speed doesn’t increase. Acceleration may not be as effective as it once was. This will be more obvious in a manual car than in an automatic as the clutch usually slips during a gear change. Expect to pay in the region of £400 to have your clutch replaced but make sure you get the best service and price for you by checking Bournemouth garages with BookMyGarage.
What do you need from your garage?
You may live within walking distance of a garage which offers most of the services you need. However, by sticking with the nearest garage in Bournemouth you could be missing out on a better deal. What if a garage with a collection / drop off service or courtesy car could do the same job at a good price, without the inconvenience of losing your car for the duration of the repair? BookMyGarage allows you to search for local garages which offer this facility, and compare their prices, all in one session.
