If you’re looking for a garage in Dorchester for your service, you can choose from 9 on BookMyGarage. We know how important it is to find a local garage you can trust and the star ratings from other car owners in Dorchester will help you to choose the best one for you.
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 Dorchester 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 Dorchester 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?
Do you know how often you should get your car serviced and what type of service you need? There is no hard and fast rule - it depends on the model of car you have and its age. You should find this information in your car owner’s manual. If you’re not sure, enter your mileage on BookMyGarage and we’ll help you decide. As a general recommendation, you should be taking your car for a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles). If you’re regularly travelling far beyond Dorchester for work or to visit relatives, or you have a car with known issues, it’s worth getting 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 Dorchester. 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 Dorchester garages with BookMyGarage.
What do you need from your garage?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Dorchester. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
