Book a High-Quality Van Service in Colchester

How Do I Choose the Best Garage For My Car Service in Colchester?

It’s usually only once a year but it has to be done - so which garage do you book your car's servicing with? The one around 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 Colchester 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 garages in Colchester rated by other car owners, with transparent, immediate details of their prices and services. As every garage on our comparison site sets their prices themselves, you'll never experience a nasty surprise after your car servicing.

FAQs

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 Often Should I Book a Car Service in Colchester?

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

 

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
  • Filter
  • Brakes
  • Timing Belt
  • Windscreen Wipers
  • Exhaust
  • Suspension
  • Steering System

 

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.
