Car Servicing in East Kilbride

Regular car servicing can extend the life of a vehicle and increase fuel economy. A small investment in routine car servicing and repair, plus a good inspection programme results in a good return on that investment due to:

  • Reduced Cost of Repairs Over the Life of the Vehicle
  • Reducing Unforeseen and Possible Breakdown Risks
  • Reduced Vehicle Time off the Road
  • Less Inconvenience and Less Unforeseen Expense
  • Less Likelihood of Car Accidents
  • The Possibility of Increased Product Life

For example, tyres last longer, brake discs do not become scored and in need of replacement.

This is a very comprehensive annual service for trouble free motoring. It exceeds most manufacturers’ service schedules with more than 40 checks and adjustments, and includes the replacement of spark plugs – depending on requirements – and the air filter element as well as changing the engine oil and oil filter. We check and report on any items that need attention now or in the future. Call us today to book your car’s service.

It will be carried out by a Vehicle Inspectorate approved tester. An assistant is essential for proper conduct of the MOT test. You must not interrupt or distract the tester during the inspection.
