At GT Motorcars, we carry out annual servicing to manufacturers specifications. We follow schedules recommended by manufacturers and perform the same servicing as those carried out by main dealers.
Your car should be serviced at least once every year. Any vehicle that enters our workshops for servicing or general repairs will receive parts and consumables matching or sometimes exceeding the original quality. It is our belief that parts of an insufficient quality, however cheaper they may be at the time can in some circumstances result in a costly replacement or further damage to other components.
Free collection and delivery of your car is optional for local customers — don’t forget to ask when making your booking!
SERVICING TIES REMOVED FROM NEW CAR WARRANTIES:
The Office of Fair trading (OFT) reports that consumers no longer have to have their vehicle serviced by a franchise dealer to comply with the manufacturer’s warranty.
THE OFT REPORTS:
Servicing at franchise dealers is typically more expensive than servicing at independent garages, averaging £199 and £116 respectively without any apparent difference in the quality of service offered. Taken from the OFT bulletin 85/04.
At present we are unable to carry out MOT tests on-site however, pre-test inspections and the test itself can be organised.
Hints and tips
Should you decide to take your car for its MOT yourself then here are a few helpful tips that can save you time and money before you get there -
It is possible to get your vehicle an MOT up to 28 days before due date, giving you a 13 month MOT.
Also known as timing belts, these require replacement within manufacturer specified times.
These belts can fail if not replaced, causing catastrophic damage to the internals of the engine and, at its worst, can lead to the need for a complete rebuild or replacement.
We strongly recommend that if you do not know when your cam belt requires replacement, then please ASK US AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, we will be happy to advise you.
For general maintenance, we have used our extensive knowledge, only supplying and fitting parts from the leading manufacturers in the industry, to ensure you get the best value for your money.
We are able to undertake all welding repairs to MOT standards, our workshop is fully equipped and can fabricate repair panels to suit any vehicle. For further information, or a quote please contact us for a free estimate.
