Difference Between Maintenance & Repair

Repairs are services that are required or necessary when something on your vehicle is not working properly or may have worn to the point where a replacement is required to maintain the performance of your vehicle. Maintenance is the routinely scheduled services, inspections and part replacements that your vehicle manufacturer recommends based on the age or mileage of your vehicle. The schedule for performing these maintenance services varies from vehicle to vehicle. You will find the schedule for your vehicle in your owner’s manual. Following this schedule is the best way to make sure your vehicle is performing as it should.

Repair Services

Save at least 50% on Main Dealer Prices.

It's a well known fact that many main dealer garage costs can be anything up to 50% more expensive than a regualr service and repair centre. In some cases, this is purely down to the endorsement over the door, as many of the diagnostics and rigourous vehicle checks we carry out during a full service are exactly the same procedures as followed by a main dealer. All our repairs are carried out by qualified mechanics to a very high standard.

No additional work undertaken without your agreement

One of our team will always advise you of any additional work that may be required and the costs involved before any work is carried out. Once these costs have been approved by yourself only then will the work be completed accordingly. This guarantees you are kept informed at all times of what your repairs will cost, and avoid any nasty surprises.


Standard brake service

It's not always possible to get your vehicle booked into the service department of your franchise dealer as quickly as you need to, even when your brake warning light is on. You may also want to check your braking system in advance of a WoF, before a long journey, or just as part of an ongoing maintenance routine.

Lifetime brake service

We offer a comprehensive brake service to make sure your braking systems are working optimally for safety and vehicle performance. Car brakes are one of the most important vehicle systems so regular brake repair and maintenance work is essential.
