"very pleased with the service provided"
Helpful after MOT fail
"Service good although I had to contact them to know when I could collect car. Issue resolved quickly. There was a charge on bill I was unfamiliar with and should have checked with them to understand. I would most definitely use them again."
"Very good customer service, car collected and returned . Very satisfied"
Great peace of mind
"My car needed a service and I was honestly dreading it. Luckily I found Acton Service Centre and they really put my mind at ease. I found them very honest and reliable. My car was serviced in a timely fashion and I was kept informed throughout. I was also given some recommendations about my car without ever being pushy about replacing parts."
"Friendly, quick service and even managed to fit me in last minute."
Really great service
"I'm happý with the service very good work and professional attitude of the staff. Recommend it 5+"
Best in the business
"Online booking of Interim Service was straight forward. Also asked for a courtesy car is Fergussons Sutton is a bit out of the way public transport wise for me. Although the courtesy car was returned late, Russel did do his best to ask the client to bring the car in as there is another client waiting. Service and MOT was done within a day, but I could not make it for their closing time and they had no hassle for me to collect the next morning. Unfortunately I am always weary about this trade as I have no foot to stand on when you take a car into a Service Centre and they tell you that there is things that needs to be replaced for it to pass MOT. You can only but take their word for it unless you have a lot of spare time and money for 2nd/3rd opinions. Anyway, no such issues with Furgesson. I have serviced my car there the last couple of years and wish I new about them earlier. Highly recommended."

If you’re looking for a garage in Selkirk for your service, you can choose from 1 on BookMyGarage. We know how important it is to find a local garage you can trust and the star ratings from other car owners in Selkirk will help you to choose the best one for you.
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 Selkirk 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 Selkirk 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.
When should you get your car serviced?
Do you know how often you should get your car serviced and what type of service you need? There is no hard and fast rule - it depends on the model of car you have and its age. You should find this information in your car owner’s manual. If you’re not sure, enter your mileage on BookMyGarage and we’ll help you decide. As a general recommendation, you should be taking your car for a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles). If you’re regularly travelling far beyond Selkirk for work or to visit relatives, or you have a car with known issues, it’s worth getting an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
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 Selkirk 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 Selkirk 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.
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 Selkirk 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.
