"From the minute I booked my service to the moment I picked my car up- the staff at Britannia were excellent at communicating with me. I knew I was in safe hands. The staff are friendly, and as a female I can sometimes feel a little lost with 'car mechanics'; however I did not feel that way here and I will definitely book my car in again (and recommend to others)."

What do you think about when choosing a garage for your service?
What is most important for you when you’re booking in your car’s service? For many people working in or near Chester le Street, it’s about finding a time that fits around office hours, school pick-ups or nursery drop-offs; BookMyGarage can help here by telling you which garages offer car collection and/or a loan car while yours is out of action. Hanging on the phone while you try to get on with the rest of your life is not ideal so the option to book online with a service such as BookMyGarage can prove invaluable. Of course, you also want a garage you can trust which is where the star ratings from other car owners in Chester le Street come in, to help you make the right choice.
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 Chester le Street on a regular basis, or you know your car has some issues.
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 Chester le Street 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 Chester le Street 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.
What do you need from your garage?
We all have different needs, and choosing a garage is no different. For some of us, it’s the quality of the overall service which matters most; not just the work that’s done under the bonnet, but the human interaction that comes with it. BookMyGarage allows you to compare Chester le Street garages on everything from their waiting room refreshments or whether having your toddler in tow is going to be a problem, to how clearly the staff can explain the work your car requires.
