Servicing your car

Car Servicing in Worcester

Cars don’t run for ever. They need to be serviced regularly to stay in peak condition, be safe and have a reduced risk of breakdown. Your vehicle is also likely to perform better and save you money and stress in the long run.

Regularly servicing your car can make the difference between it running smoothly and fuel efficiently and the risk of it breaking down and incurring an expensive and unexpected repair.

It can be false economy to avoid regular car servicing, since expected wear and tear requiring minor maintenance can fast become a costly major repair or replacement.

Here are our top eight reasons why your car should be serviced regularly:

1. Servicing avoids expensive sudden repairs

The most important part of any service is an oil change. If this is neglected, oil will degrade. Keeping an eye on your car’s fluids, oil and internal mechanics decreases internal wear and increases dependability and overall vehicle performance.

2. Servicing saves money

A well-maintained engine is more fuel efficient. A vehicle running at a lesser efficiency will waste fuel and the money you used to pay for it. Scheduling your vehicle for tune-ups will ensure that your car is saving you as much money as possible.

3. Servicing avoids breakdowns

Having components that wear out regularly changed will help prevent an unexpected breakdown. Standing next to your car by the side of the road isn’t how you pictured finding out about a problem with your engine. Factor in the costs of towing, hiring a mechanic and finding a temporary vehicle can rack up a bill you’re not prepared for.

4. Servicing prevents accidents

The primary reason for regularly servicing your vehicle is to ensure you, your family and others are safe on the road. Although there are many causes of collisions, a cause for concern is vehicle neglect. Faulty steering and braking systems, improper fluid levels and worn windshield wipers can cause serious – sometimes fatal – accidents. Taking your car in for regular services ensures everything is working properly.

5. Servicing ensures your lights and tyres are working

When was the last time you checked your lights? And not many motorists check tyre pressure, let alone condition. Having good tyres at the right pressure ensures you have optimum stopping distance.

6. Servicing prevents major engine failure

A service will include checks of belts, the most important belt being the cam-shaft drive belt. Other belts also can cause major engine failure.

7. Servicing maintains your vehicle’s resale value

A regularly serviced car is worth more than a non-serviced car. The most valuable aspect of a car that a buyer looks for is its condition and performance which can be proven through your service record. A well-maintained vehicle will not only sell for a higher price but also be easier to sell.

8. Peace of mind

Regular services will ease your mind in knowing there are no lurking problems waiting to happen. Knowing your vehicle is running at peak capacity will free you from worries that could have adverse effects on your physical and mental health. You’ll be safe, less stressed and your wallet will thank you.

What our customers say

I couldn’t rate the boys at this garage higher if I tried; they were friendly, polite, super helpful and were absolutely not out to fleece me of extra money which is the feeling I so often get with other garages.

5/5

The whole team were so friendly, this was the first time I’ve ever had to go to a garage and hate doing these sort of things on my own but it was so simple and only took half an hour, really really impressed and will definitely be returning.

5/5

Excellent customer service and great communication from dropping my car off to collecting it when the repair was complete. It is great to have a local garage who are honest and do all they can to get you back on the road as soon as possible.

5/5

Continued good service from all members of staff. A very friendly and helpful bunch.

5/5

Really helpful, reliable and fair prices. They are always looking for sensible ways to help without running up huge bills. When we found we had a flat tyre on a Saturday morning just before a big journey, they sent someone out to fix it, even though that took them way past closing time.

Highly recommend. Not only do they talk the talk, they walk the walk. Cost, time and delivery first class. Full of good advice and they kept in contact throughout the repair.

The big thing for me with a garage is trust. Every time I have taken my car in the work has been done superbly and the bill has been fair. I would highly recommend Worcester Mobile Mechanic to anyone - enough said!
