Car Servicing

 

At the Marlow Garage we adhere to the belief that regular vehicle servicing and keeping to the schedule as set by the manufacturer within your vehicle’s service book is a good way to reduce costly repair bills in the long run. It can also improve the value of your car if you look to sell it. This has been well documented and a good, non-biased article we came across on this can be found at www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk .

Since 2002 consumers have the right to have their new cars serviced where they choose without a risk to their warranty, instead of being obligated to stick to the franchised dealer. This is effective as long as the independent garage chosen uses manufacturer approved parts and follows the manufacturer’s service schedule. We use original equipment in our servicing so you can be reassured that you will also be able to visit us with your new vehicles.

We offer good value, interval service packages that will save you money against the main dealers. Our interim services begin at £129 inclusive of VAT and major servicing begins at £219 inclusive of VAT. Please note that service prices can vary depending upon quantity and types of oil required. Below is our service chart detailing what is covered during different service levels.

If you are unsure which service your vehicle requires then please feel free to call us on 01494 459616 and one of our friendly technicians will be happy to advise you more.
