An MOT test is an annual inspection that is required by law on all vehicles in the UK older than 3 years. The test follows strict criteria that is set out by the DVSA to determine whether your car is fit for purpose and in roadworthy condition. A broad range of vehicle safety checks must be completed by an MOT garage with DVSA-approved examiners, including lights, tyres, seatbelts and emissions. Contact us to book in your MOT for just £39
One of the simplest and most effective ways to ensure that you get consistent reliability for your vehicle is to maintain and service it regularly. In a full service the engine oil and all service related filters such as the oil filter, air filter, cabin/pollen filters, fuel filter, spark plugs are replaced. Brakes are also serviced and engine fluids are checked and topped up accordingly. We also check the tyres, suspension and the underbody for safety and report any issues found. Prices for a full service start at just £60 plus parts.
A partial service includes changing the engine oil and oil filter, and needs to be carried out at least once a year on most vehicles. When draining the engine oil we remove undertrays and drain the oil from the sump, the way it should be done. We do not use an oil extraction pump to do this because these do not extract all of the oil. Prices start from only £20 labour plus parts.
If your vehicle is in need of repair the process is simple, book an appointment with us to check the issue, we then will quote you for the job with a clear breakdown on labour and parts. We will also let you know how long it is likely to take and approximately what time your vehicle will be ready to collect. You may wait in our waiting room whilst the repair work is taking place or we will call you as soon as your car is ready.
