Why servicing is essential for your car

Regular servicing reduces the risk of breakdown and keeps the car in better condition and when stamped in your service book, adds £’s to its resale value.

An MOT is an essential safety check, but should not to be confused with a service. MOT testers are forbidden to remove or replace any item. A service allows us to change and/or inspect essential fluids and components such as oil, brake fluid and key filters.

It always makes sense to have an MOT & service together - it saves time & money!

Why choose a Motest service?

Not only are they designed to be appropriate and comprehensive for the way you use your car, but they include the little important things that other garages just don't do , such as checking the battery in your key fob or ensuring your clock has the right time and day . It's all attention to detail!

Free IMO car wash with every Motest service

We also give you a complimentary voucher for an IMO car wash on all our services – on Essential it’s a Triple Foam wash and on Full & Major an Ultra HD Proshield wash which includes paint enhancement and protection. IMO are the largest car wash company in the UK with 250 branches.

Which Motest Fixed Price service should I choose?

We have 3 types available for cars & vans up to 3 litres:

  • Essential Service

    Minimum maintenance requirement to keep you on the road - £150 or £180 with MOT - typically takes 1 hour.

    What does it cover?

    Great way of getting a low cost inspection on 36 key items such as brakes, plus oil/filter change as well as top ups on the essentials in order to guarantee you peace of mind.

    When should I get an essential service?

    Very useful especially when combined with an MOT, if you have an older car of modest value and want to keep it going "another year" . Also great for cars that do very low mileage in a year, which should be alternated with a major service every other year

  • Full Service

    Covers items that need inspecting or changing 12'000 miles or 12 months - £250 or £275 with MOT - typically takes 2 hours

    When should I get a full service?
    • 12 months or 12000 miles since last service and should be alternated with a major service.
    • Over a 12-month period or with high mileage, oils and other fluids will deteriorate. In addition critical safety items such as brakes and tyres will wear, so a detailed check of such items is essential.
    • Car has just been purchased and last service was nearly 12 months ago.

    What's included Book now
  • Major Service

    Covers items that need inspecting or changing 24'000 miles or 24 months - £325 or £350 with MOT - typically takes 3 hours

    What does it cover?

    The most comprehensive service available (93 points). Its a full service plus critical additional items, which should be replaced every 2 years. This includes;

    • Brake fluid - after 2 years, brake fluid will have absorbed so much moisture that the boiling point drops, leading to poorer performance and ultimately failure
    • Coolant change - by 2 years the coolant will become acidic and have started to lose effectiveness at cooling the engine and preventing corrosion. This ultimately will cause clogged radiators and potentially head gasket failure through overheating.
    • Replacing fuel and air filters including fuel and pollen filters
    • Replace spark plugs with the exception of long life plugs these should be changed at 2 years if mileage is 25-30k since last changed
    When should I get a major service?
    • As mentioned, the above items must be changed at 2-year intervals. By alternating with a full service, your vehicle will be kept at peak maintain levels, with benefits on reliability, economy, performance and environment.
    • If you have just bought the vehicle and there is no service book or record, this service will cover everything for peace of mind.
