Confidence & Trust
"Everything was as I have come to expect from Marchwoods, really good, so the following comment is not a criticism because it is not reflective of the normal experience I have with you. The car was due to be collected at 8.30 and was not picked up until 9am. This was not a problem on this occasion as I had no other commitments and I knew I had not been forgotten. Maybe a call to say that the collection will be late would have helped. As I said it is not really a criticism just a suggestion"

What do you think about when choosing a garage for your service?

At BookMyGarage we’ve worked hard to provide an authoritative comparison site where you can instantly weigh up the garage options in Folkestone. Compare local garages’ prices, speed and quality of service, and customer reviews and then complete your booking at a fixed price, at the time of your choice. It’s that easy!
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 Folkestone on a regular basis, or you know your car has some issues.
What are common car problems to look out for?
A common car problem which is worth taking action on fast is a faulty alternator. The alternator is a simple but key part in your car - as well as powering your headlights it gives your battery the power it needs to start the car, so it’s pretty important. There are a few signs to look out for if your alternator is starting to fail, from dimmed headlights when you’re driving around Folkestone at night or a light appearing on the dashboard, to a growling sound or unusual smell coming from the engine. If you spot any of these, find a Folkestone garage on BookMyGarage and get your car checked out. Prices for a replacement alternator can vary a lot depending on the make and model of your car, but are generally around £200-£300.
What do you need from your garage?
You may live within walking distance of a garage which offers most of the services you need. However, by sticking with the nearest garage in Folkestone you could be missing out on a better deal. What if a garage with a collection / drop off service or courtesy car could do the same job at a good price, without the inconvenience of losing your car for the duration of the repair? BookMyGarage allows you to search for local garages which offer this facility, and compare their prices, all in one session.
