What is a car service?

A car service is a service that looks the essential systems in your car. This is carried out by a mechanic who will look at everything in the car. They check to make sure the vehicle is safe to drive on the road - a legal requirement to have you serviced every twelve months.

Is a car service the same thing as an MOT?

An MOT is a standardised check with specific rules and regulations set by the government. A service not a legal obligation and is more for the benefit of your car.

It is important to note that a car service is not the same as an MOT. The similarities are that many of the same parts and systems are inspected during each.

A car service is carried out and fully controlled by the mechanic or garage carrying the work out.

This means that the pricing will change from garage to garage alone as well as from car to car, much like any other repair work.

What are the different types of services?

The two different types of services are an interim car service and full car service. As each service will change from garage to garage, they will carry out different checks and look at different parts. A car service is a full diagnostic that looks into the health of a car. This it is not a service where specific repairs are included.

Interim checks every six months before a full service will highlight if there is a minor problem. It will help you resolve the issue before it gets any worse. If you do not have an interim check and you have an issue, it may get worse, meaning leaving you paying more money when it is eventually discovered in the full car service.

Alongside this, it is vital that you are able to talk to more than one garage before completing the job. You should compare price and how thorough the checks will be.

This is where WhoCanFixMyCar comes in!
