What do you think about when choosing a garage for your service?
What is most important for you when you’re booking in your car’s service? For many people working in or near Southend-on-Sea, it’s about finding a time that fits around office hours, school pick-ups or nursery drop-offs; BookMyGarage can help here by telling you which garages offer car collection and/or a loan car while yours is out of action. Hanging on the phone while you try to get on with the rest of your life is not ideal so the option to book online with a service such as BookMyGarage can prove invaluable. Of course, you also want a garage you can trust which is where the star ratings from other car owners in Southend-on-Sea come in, to help you make the right choice.
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 Southend-on-Sea and generate a high annual mileage, consider 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 Southend-on-Sea 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 Southend-on-Sea 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?
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 Southend-on-Sea. 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.
