Car and Vehicle Servicing

Vehicle Servicing

Servicing should be carried out every six months or 10,000km, which ever comes first. We provide preventative maintenance programmes for all petrol and diesel vehicles, vans and 4x4's. Regular servicing has proven to be more cost effective than not servicing your vehicle at all.

Stop that vehicle breaking down and avoid unexpected repair costs.
