What is an interim service?

An interim service is carried out on a car by a mechanic, who checks a number of key components and parts of a car.

An interim service can be extremely helpful for finding minor problems before they develop into major ones as many parts of a car will naturally wear down over time. The ones at high risk will usually be checked during an interim service.

For a driver, having an interim service carried out is a smart move as you may not realise there is a problem developing and it could end up costing you even more money down the line.

Would you prefer to replace a pressure gauge or have your car written off entirely due to the head gasket blowing?



What is the difference between an interim service and a full service?

The difference between a full service and an interim service is the amount of parts checked. As the name suggests, an interim service will be less thorough than a full service. However, that does not mean an interim service is not worth having.



What is an MOT?

An MOT is an annual test of vehicle safety and emissions that is a legal obligation for any car over three years old in the UK.



Why opt for an Interim Service with your MOT?
