You can choose from three servicing types for your car: interim services for between annual full services, or major 2 year services. Routine checks are made to some components and parts during Canterbury vehicle servicing as well as conducting system and component inspections like braking, suspension and exhausts. It is important that visibility is good to make sure a clear road view is available, which means wind screen wipers need to function correctly and smudging or streaking shouldn't occur.

All lights need to be fully functioning, in particular when weather conditions are poor, such as in fog, or over night. Ensuring windscreen condition is good is also necessary, without marks from wiper blades or have chips and scratches that might cause interference with driver visibility.

Why you should service your vehicle in Canterbury

Despite the requirement for vehicles to be MOTed being the law, which checks components and systems in your vehicle are in working order and your car is road worthy, to increase your car's lifespan, annual servicing is needed.

Vehicles being serviced have parts that wear out and need replacing checked, like lubricant in the engine and oil filters, because if these items are not replaced, it can damage the systems of the car and cause reductions in vehicle efficiency.

Replacing lubricants such as engine oil is necessary every 12 months, though for vehicles covering distances of 6000 miles more often than this, many people advice additional oil changes should be completed.

So to keep future repair bills down, contact your local garage and arrange an annual service.
