It’s time for your car's service again - so where do you take your car? The same garage as before - although last time you were worried you were overcharged. Here at BookMyGarage we have 1 garage in Duns for you to choose from, all rated by other car owners and offering fixed prices for their services. You can compare labour rates too, helpful if you’re thinking of additional car repairs you might need.

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 Duns 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 Duns 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.
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 Duns on a regular basis, or you know your car has some issues.
What are common repairs your car may need?
Have you ever returned to your usual parking place to find a suspicious dark stain where your car was parked overnight? Take action fast as engine oil leaks should not be ignored; there’s a danger of potential engine damage or failure if your engine runs low on oil. If the liquid is dark brown or yellow, and it feels slippery or greasy, it is probably motor oil. A pink or red slippery liquid could be automatic transmission fluid, while green or orange liquid with a sweet smell is most likely antifreeze (watch out for pets and young children around this one as it’s highly toxic). A clear, oily liquid could be power steering fluid. Whatever it is, get the car checked by a trusted garage. Typical costs of repairing a leak are hard to give as the reason could be something simple such as a worn seal, or it could be a sign of a major issue with your engine. Use BookMyGarage to find the most suitable garage in Duns for your needs.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Duns or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
