If you’re looking for a garage in Dorking for your service, you can choose from 12 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 Dorking 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 Dorking 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 Dorking 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?
Not everyone is organised enough to know when an MOT is due, but what about a service? The make, age, mileage and average usage of your car all play a part in this question, but in general your car should undergo a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every two years (or 24,000 miles). Some helpful garages apply a sticker to the driver’s door noting the date when the next service is due, but the best thing is to check the owner’s manual which should detail the service history of the vehicle. When you buy a new car or sell your existing one, it’s important to have that service history filled out so that a potential buyer or dealer can see at a glance that the car’s been properly looked after. High mileage drivers who regularly travel outside Dorking should consider 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 Dorking. 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 Dorking 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 Dorking. 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.
