Frequently asked questions
+

What is a 'Full Service' on a car?

Servicing your car on a regular basis is vital to ensuring your car is reliable, performant and fuel efficient as much as possible, in order to help protect its resale value. Undertaking a ‘Full Service’ on your car involves checking thoroughly the fluids and components in the vehicle, to determine these need either replacing, updating, or replenishing. Getting your car serviced will also help prevent larger jobs needing to be undertaken later on, hence most likely helping you save you a lot of hassle and money.
+

What is included in a Full Service?

A Full Service includes renewal or top-up of all major fluids;
  • Oil
  • Coolant
  • Brake fluid,
  • Automatic Transmission Fluid
During a full service, a clean will be provided to;
  • Filters
  • Spark plugs
Other components are also comprehensively checked;
  • Suspension
  • Steering
  • Door locks
+

What's the difference between a Full and an Interim Service?

An Interim Service focuses on items that require the most regular renewal and maintenance. A Full Service covers all of these, plus those that require a less-frequent review, such as a brake fluid 'boil test or axle oil top up.
+

What's the difference between a Full and a Major Service?

Many garages won't differentiate between a Full and a Major Service. Where they do, the Major Service is even more comprehensive and may include items such as a full drain and renewal of brake fluid and of the cooling system's coolant.
+

What does a Full Service cost?

A Full Service with our garages will typically cost between £150 and £200. If you have a car with 6 cylinders, it may be a little higher.

What is a car service?

A car service is carried out by a qualified mechanic who will check all essential systems and items in your car. Their job will be to ensure that your vehicle is safe to drive on the road, hence the fact that it is a legal requirement for you to service your car every 12 months.

Is a car service the same thing as an MOT?

There is a difference between an MOT and a car service, despite the fact that both cover many of the same components.

An MOT is different to a service because one must be completed to a government set of regulations, with certain rules having to be followed. With a car service, everything is controlled by the mechanic and/or garage who are undertaking the work.

This is why pricings can change from garage to garage, and car to car. Different car makes and models will have different components, and different garages/mechanics will have their own way of carrying out a service.

What are the different types of services?

You have two options when wanting to get your car serviced, an interim car service or a full car service. Services change from garage to garage, so different check with be carried out, looking at different parts of your car.

Your car needs to have its health checked to make sure that it is running smoothly and safely, and that is the purpose of a service. Specific repairs are included as part of a car service as well, with a full diagnostic finding out everything about the health of your car.

That is why having interim service checks six months before a full service can be so helpful, as any minor issues can be fixed before they potentially get worse. This means you should have a few less surprises when you come to getting your car a full service.

Imagine finding out during a full service that you need to have major work done on your car. This could have been stopped if found 6 months earlier during an interim service, which would have been much cheaper.

That is why you must make sure you are getting the best value for your money, and talking to more than one garage is something that should always be done. Being able to compare all the prices in one place will allow you to evaluate your options in more detail, and luckily you are in the right place for that!

We have compiled a list of what most garages will check during an interim or full service. However you should check with a garage before you book as not every garage will cover what we have included below.

What is Checked in a Full and Interim Car Service?

  • Oil and Oil Filter Replacement
  • Brake Fluid
  • Antifreeze Coolant
  • Windscreen Wash
  • Power Steering Fluid
  • Lights
  • Windscreen Wipers
  • Battery Condition
  • Charging System
  • Exhaust System
  • Tyre Tread and Pressure
  • Full Brake Check
  • Steering Check
  • Shock Absorbers Check
  • Suspension Check

A full car service also includes:

  • Auxiliary Drive Belt Check
  • Wheel Alignment Check
  • Wheel Bearing Check
  • Wheel Balance
  • Brake Fluid Condition
  • Fuel Filter (Diesel)
  • Spark Plugs (Petrol)
  • Air Filter

The majority of these parts and systems should be checked in a regular interim car service or full car service. If you need a top up of any lubricants such as motor oil or need additional repairs, extra costs will be involved.
