"I have been servicing my car in some of Derby garages for some years now, and I must say it's quite an experience to have my car service at MRK's. Lovely people to talk to and the full service was done before the given time. I'd like to say thank you to Richard for the great and quality service. And for those of you searching for an honest and great service like no other, look no further than MRK's."

The owner was really friendly and helpful and didn’t leave me with the feeling that I was being patronised or ripped off, which as a woman happens a lot when you take your car to a garage! Really glad I’ve found this garage, will be using them from now on."

How do you choose a garage for your service?
What is the first thing you do when it’s time to choose a garage for your annual service? Do you just pick up the phone to the garage you’ve been using since you first drove a car - even if it’s miles out of Ilkeston - because that’s what you’ve always done? Do you ask friends for their recommendations? Or do you compare prices, speed and quality of service, and feedback for all the garages in and around Ilkeston? While this might seem the most systematic approach, it is also the most time-intensive. But BookMyGarage lets you do just that and book in your service with your chosen garage online at the same time.
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 Ilkeston on a regular basis, or you know your car has some issues.
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 Ilkeston. 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 Ilkeston 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 Ilkeston. 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.
