How do you choose a garage for your service?
What is the first thing you do when it’s time to choose a garage for your annual service? Do you just pick up the phone to the garage you’ve been using since you first drove a car - even if it’s miles out of Brent - because that’s what you’ve always done? Do you ask friends for their recommendations? Or do you compare prices, speed and quality of service, and feedback for all the garages in and around Brent? While this might seem the most systematic approach, it is also the most time-intensive. But BookMyGarage lets you do just that and book in your service with your chosen garage online at the same time.
What type of car service do you need?
Did you know that there are 3 main types of car service? The annual service is called a Full Service. It includes all the basic checks, maintenance and any essential work. It should also tell you about any signs of wear and tear. If you’re often travelling beyond Brent and clock up more than 12,000 miles in a year, consider booking your Full Service before the 12 months are up. It’s a good idea to get a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles); this is a really thorough check of your vehicle that includes all essential maintenance as well as parts that should be replaced every 24 months. The third of the 3 main services is the Interim Service. Carried out every 6 months (or 6,000 miles), it is recommended if you regularly cover long distances, or if you know your car has problems.
What are common car problems to look out for?
A common car problem which is worth taking action on fast is a faulty alternator. The alternator is a simple but key part in your car - as well as powering your headlights it gives your battery the power it needs to start the car, so it’s pretty important. There are a few signs to look out for if your alternator is starting to fail, from dimmed headlights when you’re driving around Brent at night or a light appearing on the dashboard, to a growling sound or unusual smell coming from the engine. If you spot any of these, find a Brent garage on BookMyGarage and get your car checked out. Prices for a replacement alternator can vary a lot depending on the make and model of your car, but are generally around £200-£300.
How can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Brent or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
