"Happy with service and price."
"Great service, except one thing, the booking online didn’t add my pick up and drop off which was a shame, tried to contact the service Centre but the numbers on all of the confirmations don’t actually take you to the garage you have booked. Having said all of this once I did get through to the right garage everything was sorted and a pick up of my car arranged very quickly to rectify the issue. My car was serviced and no issues, returned nice and clean and washed! Thank you!"

"Happy with everything"
"Used this garage for many years and am fully confident that the work done us of a high standard and that they won't do unnecessary work just to get extra money."
"Job done to a good standard"
"Work done on time, car collected and dropped off same day...brilliant"
"Originally just a full service which went to plan. Whilst doing the service, it was discovered that my brakes were pretty much 'shot to pieces' all round. I was given a telephone call and all of my options were talked through. I wasn't pressurised into having the work done but was given lots of help and advice. I eventually agree to the work and was told that despite the amount of work that needed doing, that it would all be done that day. It was and my car now feels like new!"
"Easy to book online, friendly personal service, work was completed quickly and to a high standard. They kept me up to date and I will be using them again."

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 Buckingham 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 Buckingham 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.
Do you know when your car needs a service?
When do you need to take your car in for a service? The general recommendation is that your car has a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles). That said, the make, model, mileage and age of your vehicle will all affect how often it needs a service. Your owner’s manual is a good place to start to make sure you’re getting your car serviced when you should. You should also think about having an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles) if you're covering long distances beyond Buckingham on a regular basis, or you know your car has some issues.
What are common repairs your car may need?
The cambelt (or timing belt) is a very important component that regulates the operation of your car engine. If it breaks, it can cause expensive damage, so when it comes to the cambelt prevention is better than cure. This crucial part of your engine will have an inbuilt lifespan. Varying from make to make, some manufacturers suggest replacement at 40,000 miles, others are said to last as long as 110,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for your specific car. Some tell-tale symptoms that your cambelt might be wearing out include erratic engine behaviour at around 2000 - 4000 RPMs, or your exhaust suddenly starting to expel more smoke than usual. This is an indicator that your engine is struggling and under duress - time to click on BookMyGarage and find a great Buckingham garage at the right price.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Buckingham or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
