Types of Car Servicing Package & What’s Involved

Interim Car Servicing – Motorists who get a lot of use out of their vehicle, racking up the miles over the course of the year, should consider the benefit of interim car servicing every 6 months or 6,000 miles (whichever comes first). It’s less comprehensive than a full service, but involves some essential checks and procedures. Interim car service will check and test the following:

  • Bodywork & Mirrors
  • Interior & Exterior Lights
  • Warning Lights
  • Seatbelts
  • ABS
  • Fuel Cap
  • Timing Belt Interval
  • Windscreen Wipers
  • Fan & Auxiliary Belts
  • Air Conditioning
  • Power Steering
  • Battery
  • Air Filter
  • Gearbox
  • Clutch
  • Handbrake
  • Fuel Lines
  • Exhaust System
  • Steering & Suspension
  • Drums & Discs
  • Tyres
  • Brake Pads & Pipes
  • Corrosion Checks
  • Exhaust Emissions

Full Car Servicing – The full package, recommended every 12,000 miles or 12 months. Our mechanics put your vehicle through a series of checks of important components that keep you running efficiently. Even motorists around the Horley and Crawley areas who only get occasional use out of their vehicle can benefit from a full service once per annum.

Checks and tests will target all the aforementioned areas part of interim car servicing, in addition to:

  • Door Locks & Hinges
  • Coolant System
  • Engine Cooling Fan
  • Throttle Operation
  • Radiator & Coolant Pipes
  • Distributor Cap
  • Rear & Front Brakes
  • Gearbox & Engine Mounts
  • Wheels
  • Wheel Bearings

Both interim and full car servicing packages include replacement of oil and oil filter, and any top-ups to essential fluids that may be running low. In addition, full car servicing involves changing the air filter. Once complete, you’ll get a stamp in your service history to show you’ve been keeping on top of vehicle maintenance. This can prove invaluable when eventually selling your vehicle, proving it to be of more value than a neglected, poorly maintained equivalent.
