Car & Van servicing

VEHICLE SERVICING

Best Autocentres service, maintain and MoT all makes of car and van. Our fixed price Major service of your vehicle includes replacement service items, i.e filters, plugs and oil, as per the manufacturers recommendation and specification. We recommend annual servicing with a Major service one year and a Medium service the following year. We also do a Minor interim top up service which is only recommended for very high mileage vehicles between annual services.

As a reputable aftermarket service agent, Best Autocentres can service your car even in its first three years without affecting your warranty, and normally at a much lower cost.

DUE TO BLOCK EXEMPTION REGULATIONS IT IS ILLEGAL FOR A MAIN DEALER TO INSIST THAT A NEW CAR HAS TO BE SERVICED AT A DEALER… EVEN IN THE WARRANTY PERIOD. In most cases main dealers will charge you considerably more for an inferior service than that done by BEST Autocentres. All that is required to maintain the warranty is that the parts used are of an equivalent quality to the original parts fitted. 

Another misconception perpetuated by main dealers is that a non dealer stamp in the service book will affect the resale price…. this is a complete fallacy… all that is required is a record of the correct service history and a stamp by any garage will suffice. We deal with many used car sales companies and they will all tell you that a service history is beneficial but it makes no difference to the price wether this is provided by a main dealer or an independant garage.

Service intervals do vary according to usage and manufacturer, but as a general rule, vehicles should be serviced every 12 months or 10,000 miles. Cambelts (timing belts) should be replaced at the manufacturer recommended mileage. Although this can be quite expensive, failure to replace the belt and tensioners could result in far more expensive damage to the engine.

BEST Autocentres have some of the latest Hi-Tech Diagnostic Equipment at every centre. This allows us to diagnose faults registered within the on-board computer commonly known as the ECU. There is an additional charge for this service to cover the high cost of the equipment. Best Autocentres will discount the service if taken at the same time as an MOT.
