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.

Please note that, like all reputable garages, we will not fit parts purchased from a third party or via the internet.

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.


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.


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.


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


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!

Great mechanics. Honest, trustworthy service. Very thorough and explained everything that needed doing. Provides photo evidence that the jobs are being done.  

Very professional and very friendly. Fixed my van quickly. Highly recommended.

Dave and his team bend over backwards to help you get back on the road. They love helping people with Japanese imports.

MOT carried out at a really late notice. Brilliant guys who offered sound advice and took the time to explain all advisories. Won't hesitate to use again.


Brilliant team who have done wonders to my Mazda Bongo and gone above and beyond. I couldn't ask for more. Thank you.


Absolute life savers! Realised my MOT expired the evening before we were due to leave for holiday. Called up after trying almost 10 previous garages and they couldn’t have been more helpful. They fitted me in within an hour and we were able to leave for our holiday on time. The man I spoke to on the phone and the lady in reception were by far the most friendly and polite garage owners I have ever met and they even offered to make me a coffee while I waited. Highly recommend.


Great customer service from David and his team. They managed to fit me in for a MOT and a small job at short notice. I just had to leave the vehicle with them for most of the day.


We like this place so much that we drive from Runcorn for them to do any work on our Bongo.


These guys are amazing. My Ford Focus wouldn't start and had to be recovered to my house because no garages would take it. I called David and WMM came out the same day, collected it and diagnosed it. They realised it was a known fault that Ford were aware of and it was cheaper for me to get Ford to fix it under their goodwill scheme. Absolutely amazing service. They did themselves out of the repair work because they care more about what's best for their customers.


We have never had such a professional, excellent service, and would not hesitate to recommend David and his team for their outstanding customer service, honesty and support.


Exceptional service & very friendly staff.


I've been taking my car to WMM since 2009 and they are always reliable and full of good advice.


Having developed a problem with my car en route from Devon to Worcester I was very fortunate to pick this garage to call. I handed my car to them at around 4pm on Thursday, by 4.30pm they'd had a look at it and by 11am on Friday I received a text to say it had been repaired (new shock absorbers and mounts fitted). David kept me updated re: parts/cost and I was able to head back down the M5 knowing it was safe. I can't thank or recommend David and the team enough.


Amazing service. Dave always manages to sort me out, even last minute in an emergency like when I got a flat tyre in town. Always get my MOT and service done here, I’m not car savvy and they always explain any issues or repairs for me in a way I can understand.


Helpful and friendly staff, always able to get the job done.

Really helpful staff who explained everything. I recieved photo updates of what they were doing and they explained the cost breakdown so I knew what was what. They also give you a ring if anything is going to cost more than expected to fix. Highly recommend, will use again.

Brilliant people working here! You'll be looked after very well. Great service.

First class service. Well done Dave and co.

Recently fixed my aircon. Hassle free, Quick and easy email response. Work completed fast and efficiently. Good price, friendly service. Will return and highly recommend.


Superb experience from the first telephone call to collection of my car. Will be going back here when I need servicing/MOT or other work in the future.


Absolutely fantastic service. I totally recommend Worcester's Mobile Mechanic.


I get my Mazda Bongo serviced here as they service the Bongos from the nearby Bongo conversion company.


Excellent customer service! Very knowledgeable chap, very experienced, 30 odd years experience, got all the certifications. Very reasonably priced. Will recommend.


Excellent and friendly service. I travel 40 miles to book my van in for repairs or service. Have been using them for six years now, friendly and knowledgeable staff, highly recommend them.


Dave and team really came to my rescue when I was stranded after a breakdown. Excellent repair to my 4x4 and went the extra mile to recover and secure my camping trailer. Pleasure to do business with.


Cannot thank David and his team enough. It is such a comfort knowing that they are round the corner.
