Need an MOT or service last minute?

We pride ourselves at Auttomatt garage on being as accommodating as we can for our customers. If you’ve forgotten about your MOT and need to get your car booked in quickly or need a service before going on a long journey, we’ll do our best to fit you in. We always try to get repairs, servicing and MOT tests within the same day so that you don’t have to be without your car for too long.

How often do I need to get my car serviced?

When you get a car service often depends on when your vehicle last had one. Interim services are usually conducted every 6 months or 5,000 miles, a full service is normally conducted annually or after 12,000 miles and a major service is often done after 24,000 miles or two years. For older cars or those that drive a lot within one year, it can be necessary to get an oil and filter change every 6 months just to keep your car ticking over.

Check your car’s service history for evidence of when your car last had a service. Your manufacturer’s handbook will also be a good guide for when your car should be serviced and when any parts need replacing at certain intervals. If you don’t have access to these documents, then we can check manufacturer’s recommendations and compare it with your mileage. We’ll check each component and top up fluids to make sure your vehicle runs smoothly.

What’s checked during my car service?

During a car service, many vital elements are checked on your car to make sure everything is in working order.We offer full, interim and major car servicing, dependent on your vehicle’s use, age and mileage. Each type of service builds on the previous level. Interim services usually involve an oil and filter check and visual inspections of certain key components in your vehicle such as your brakes, washer fluid, antifreeze etc.

A full service normally involves all the basic work of an interim service with additional checks on your vehicle and a major service goes a little step further including the spark plugs and changing the oil filters. You can check our recommended service schedules online when you book, but we’ll also follow manufacturer’s guidelines so that we keep your service specific to your vehicle.

Can I get a service still if I have warranty?

The answer is yes! For newer cars, we can still service your vehicle if it’s under warranty. As we only use quality parts for your car, follow manufacturer guidelines, check your history and stamp your service book, any existing warranty will remain valid.
