At JT Autocare, we know that car servicing is something our Maidenhead and Berkshire customers regard as a vital garage service. They understand that when they avoid car servicing, they increase the chances of being involved in a breakdown or having to endure a driving experience that’s far from reliable. In some cases, failure to service a vehicle compromises personal safety, affects the service history and lower the possible resale value.
If you still feel a little undecided on the importance of car servicing and would like to know a little more about the benefits, please read on or visit our workshop in Maidenhead to talk to us personally. Alternatively, take a few moments to read the testimonials of our customers, many of whom are frequent visitors to JT Autocare for car servicing on all family vehicles.
Your vehicle manufacturer has set car servicing schedules for the models they supply, which will include recommendations for either a full or an interim service. Typically, the full (scheduled) service takes place after 12,000 miles of road use or 12 months – whichever comes sooner. Interim car servicing is a more basic form of maintenance. Maidenhead vehicle owners can typically expect to book in at 6,000 mile or 6 monthly intervals.
As you would expect, full car servicing works out to be more expensive than interim car servicing because of the additional work required. During a full service, the technicians at our workshop in Maidenhead use a more detailed checklist in comparison to the criteria specified for interim car servicing. This explains the slightly higher cost on labour and parts.
If you normally use a main dealership in the Maidenhead area for car servicing, it’s almost inevitable that you’ll be familiar with their higher rates. These rates apply because most dealerships have higher overheads to accommodate showrooms. They must also absorb the cost of warranty work, either in the form of car servicing or repairs. Walk-in customers looking for car servicing tend to pick up the brunt of the expense dealerships so often incur.
Because we operate independently and have different costs to main dealerships, JT Autocare of Maidenhead offers a more competitive price range on full and interim car servicing. We still work to the same schedules and specifications recommended by your manufacturer, and we maintain the resale value of your car by stamping the service book.
