Marlow's No.1 Car Servicing Garage

As a family owned garage on the same plot in Marlow since 1925, we’ve developed some great relationships. Several generations of the same families have been coming to us since our first year in business back in 1925.

Servicing

We provide all aspects of servicing. From an interim service to a full service. We cover all areas of essential maintenance, so you can enjoy trouble free motoring and lessen the chances of hidden costs further down the road. We service to the manufacturer’s specification, using genuine parts or aftermarket equivalent parts to make savings.

Why Service Your Vehicle?

Regular vehicle servicing, whilst not a legal requirement, is essential when it comes to maintaining your vehicle in good condition.

What Is A Service?

A vehicle service is an inspection of your vehicle’s working components, including the engine, brakes and suspension amongst others, it ensures that these are working correctly.

Many people mistakenly believe that a vehicle service is the same as the MOT test, however, it performs a different function. An MOT test is an annual inspection that is undertaken to ensure that your vehicle is roadworthy and complies with DVSA legal requirements.

A routine service is designed to make sure that all the complex components on your vehicle are working effectively and those which are subject to wear and tear, are not worn out.

The Benefits Of Vehicle Servicing

Having your vehicle serviced regularly has a number of benefits:

  1. : Reduced risk of break downs ensuring that the components of your vehicle most susceptible to wear are in good condition means that you are less likely to suffer a failure.
  2. : Avoiding serious damage as existing problems will be spotted and repaired, further damage that you could cause by continuing to drive is likely to be avoided.
  3. : Maintain fuel efficiency as an effective engine with replenished engine fluids will use less fuel.

Maintaining The Value Of Your Vehicle

Regular servicing helps you to safeguard against expensive repair bills as it gives you an opportunity to fix and remedy problems before they develop into expensive damage.

Furthermore, if you choose to sell your vehicle, a full-service history makes it more valuable as this is seen as a major selling point by most buyers.

How Often Should I Service My Vehicle?

We recommend that a routine service should be carried out every year unless the service schedule specifies long-life servicing.
