"Clearly explained what and why needs doing and overall delivered great service."
Great service friendly
"Couldn't be happier with the service everything explained and best course of action it no pressure to have any of it done. All old parts kept to show what was changed and why. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs work carried out."
"Helpful staff, great value for money and great workmanship."
"They picked my car up from my house, completed a service and mot (which it passed) before dropping it back off at my house a few later! Exceptionally convenient, and for £118 for a 320d service and MOT, exceptionally good value for money too!"
"I am very happy for the quality of service received. I was able to get appointment for the same day and my vehicle was back on the road in the evening of the same day. I will definitely recommend them to other drivers."
"generally OK. They were unable to contact me to discuss repairs, although of course when they tried ringing my mobile when I was there, it did work OK. They provided a quote for repairs, at my request."
"Prompt service and excellent standard of workmanship. First time that we have used Bath Road Vehicle Services and very pleased that we have a such a good independent garage local to us."
"Very friendly and efficient"
If you’re looking for a garage in Dorking for your service, you can choose from 6 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.
