The seasoned mechanics at Amtec Motors offer affordable, yet expertly delivered car servicing packages to motorists in Brixton, Clapham, Streatham, West Norwood and East Dulwich, as well as all other areas of South London. Providing an alternative to national fast-fit centres and main dealers, as well as larger chain garages, Amtec Motors delivers a fantastic standard of service that’s tailored to you, the customer.
Most manufacturers recommend interim car servicing every 6 months or 6,000 miles, and full annual car servicing every 12 months or 12,000 miles. Brixton, Clapham, Streatham, West Norwood and East Dulwich residents who rarely use their vehicle may be fine just investing in annual car servicing; those who rely heavily on their vehicle should look to invest in both interim and full annual services each year. The former includes the core, essential checks and an oil and filter change, while the latter is a more comprehensive affair that runs over a detailed, in-depth checklist.
Fuel Efficiency – For many in our principal service areas of Brixton, Clapham, Streatham, West Norwood and East Dulwich, this will be the most appealing reason to book in car servicing at our local garage; after all, the cost of petrol is so high these days! Regular car servicing keeps your engine running efficiently, maximising miles per gallon and saving you money every time you head to the pumps. In this respect, over a long enough period of time it really can pay for itself.
Road Safety – Beyond MOT testing and car servicing, there are few opportunities to be proactive and find emerging issues before they worsen; car repairs and diagnostics are usually reactive measures. These appointments are fantastic opportunities to identify small problems and nip them in the bud, before they potentially endanger you and your passengers’ safety.
Vehicle Value – If/when you come to sell your vehicle, whether via a second hand marketplace like Gumtree or trading in with a Brixton, Clapham, Streatham, West Norwood or East Dulwich dealership, you’ll more than likely need to show your car servicing history. If you can prove that you’ve been keeping on top of vehicle maintenance, you’ll be able to maximise your return; on the other hand, suspicions around an unlogged or empty car servicing history will almost certainly lead to a discernible fall in pay-out.
Reduced Chance of Breakdown – Car servicing is statistically proven to reduce the chance you’ll suffer a breakdown. When you consider all the costs associated with an unforeseen mechanical malfunction, such as vehicle recovery, diagnostics and repair, as well as the fact it can disrupt your daily and weekly routine and force you to make alternate arrangements with family and co-workers, it’s increasingly clear of the value for money it represents.
