"Great service, New Platt Motors collected my car from my place of work which saved me a lot of bother, really friendly staff! My car even came back clean which was an added bonus!"
"Reception were friendly and helpful and the work was completely promptly and to a high standard. The mechanics came to speak to me twice, both times to keep me updated on where the car was up to. My secondary issue was regarding a mirror indicator blinker, which had unfortunately stopped working a year previously, despite a genuine new part being fitted by myself. After bringing another new part with me on the day, the mechanics were happy to fit and install it. As somebody who worked hard to be able to afford their car and somebody that spends hours cleaning and maintaining it, I was particularly pleased with NPM for showing the same consideration toward my vehicle as I do. I will be recommending them to all of my patients and will certainly return again the future when my MOT or any other work is due!"
Great service plus
"Easy to book on line. Quickly followed up by emails confirming charges. All of the work completed in one day. Approx 40% cheaper than quoted by a main dealer."
Great local garage
"Previously this Garage came to the rescue and rebuilt my car after a botch up else where. Came across this on line booking by accident. I would highly recommend."
"The service from New Platt was wonderful. The staff were friendly and accommodating and I paid exactly what they quoted. Very highly recommended!!"
Easy to use service

"It was great all round"
"Great service dropped my car off at 8:30am then I was called 3 hours later all done ready to collect"
"Guys were great, very quick and kept me informed. Only bad point was that they had no record of my booking, but they were still able to do my MOT on time."
"Great service, will use again. Thanks!"
"Very helpful and friendly. It makes a change in this day and age."
When you’re trying to find the right garage in Northwich for your car’s service, it’s good to be able to see all your options quickly and easily. BookMyGarage will show you 7 trusted garages in and around Northwich for you to choose from based on proximity, opening hours, price, service and more.
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 Northwich - 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 Northwich? 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.
When should you get your car serviced?
Not sure when your car service is due? Check your owner’s manual in the first instance, as it depends on the make, age and mileage of your car. Sometimes the last garage which serviced the car leaves a sticker on the inside of the driver’s door as a further reminder. As a rule of thumb, your car should have a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every two years (or 24,000 miles). It’s really important to take your car for regular services, for both the smooth running of your vehicle and to make matters straightforward when you sell it on. If you frequently make trips beyond Northwich and generate a high annual mileage, consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What are common repairs your car may need?
The cambelt (or timing belt) is a very important component that regulates the operation of your car engine. If it breaks, it can cause expensive damage, so when it comes to the cambelt prevention is better than cure. This crucial part of your engine will have an inbuilt lifespan. Varying from make to make, some manufacturers suggest replacement at 40,000 miles, others are said to last as long as 110,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for your specific car. Some tell-tale symptoms that your cambelt might be wearing out include erratic engine behaviour at around 2000 - 4000 RPMs, or your exhaust suddenly starting to expel more smoke than usual. This is an indicator that your engine is struggling and under duress - time to click on BookMyGarage and find a great Northwich garage at the right price.
How can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Northwich or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
