Great service BUT...
"Very happy with the service and thought it was excellent value. Would return myself and happily recommend. HOWEVER, I advise you arrange direct over the phone as they do not seem to acknowledge online bookings."
Another good job
"DJ Matthews have MOT'd my car and my works vehicles for the past three years and are always very good. The latest service for my car was a better result that I was expecting as I didn't realise it would get a wash and brush up as part of an interim service. Car going very nicely, thanks."

What type of car service do you need?
Did you know that there are 3 main types of car service? The annual service is called a Full Service. It includes all the basic checks, maintenance and any essential work. It should also tell you about any signs of wear and tear. If you’re often travelling beyond Gillingham and clock up more than 12,000 miles in a year, consider booking your Full Service before the 12 months are up. It’s a good idea to get a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles); this is a really thorough check of your vehicle that includes all essential maintenance as well as parts that should be replaced every 24 months. The third of the 3 main services is the Interim Service. Carried out every 6 months (or 6,000 miles), it is recommended if you regularly cover long distances, or if you know your car has problems.
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 Gillingham for your needs.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Gillingham 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.
