Why should I get my vehicle regularly serviced?

Good quality car servicing is an important factor in maximising the lifespan, efficiency and performance of your vehicle. It also helps towards the resale value of your vehicle, as well as being a key way to identify faults before they develop into more serious problems.

Servicing your car will help to:

  • Save you money – prevent unexpected breakdowns
  • Increase your vehicles all round safety
  • Keep your vehicle inline with the legal requirements
  • Increase your vehicles ‘miles per gallon’ (i.e. use less fuel)
  • Increase your vehicles re-sale value with a ‘Full Service History’

In short, regular vehicle servicing is essential and will save you money.

Our Servicing Prices

The cost of a service at Motorparks is in-line with the prices you will likely pay at a local ‘fast fit’. By choosing a franchised Motorparks vehicle dealer, it means that you’ll get a great deal with more benefits.

Our Servicing Benefits

We use care and attention to ensure that your vehicle receives the right work, at the right price, first time around.

Our vehicle technicians:

  • Are manufacturer trained on all makes and models.
  • Use the very latest diagnostic equipment and technology.
  • Are approved by some of the most well-loved car brands in the UK.

Our appointments are available 6 days a week, though if you prefer to just drop in then that’s fine by us too.

When you visit us to get your vehicle serviced, take advantage of our complimentary facilities and just sit back and have a tea or coffee whilst our team take care of the rest.

Our Servicing Guarantee

Our servicing work is guaranteed, so you can be safe in the knowledge that we use trusted and official parts with guaranteed parts and labour.

What makes and models do Motorparks service?

We service all makes and models at any of our dealerships nationwide.

This does not invalidate your vehicle’s warranty at all. Each of our dealerships undertake all services in accordance with the Vehicle Assembler's servicing schedules and only use parts manufactured to Original Equipment (OE) quality.

We use high quality parts too.

As a franchised dealership group representing many brands, we wouldn't think twice about using anything less when it comes to servicing your car. That doesn't mean that the price of the service is affected either. As one of the UK’s fastest growing dealer groups, we have excellent purchasing advantages. This allows us to keep your costs low, but our service quality to you high.

We either use genuine parts or we use parts manufactured to Original Equipment (OE) quality from some of the world’s most well-know brands - which means that your manufacturer's warranty is protected.

If I book my service with Motorparks, will my manufacturer warranty be invalidated?

No. We will carry out all services in accordance with the Vehicle Assembler's servicing schedules.

The parts we use on your vehicle will be official, genuine parts or parts manufactured to Original Equipment (OE) quality. This means that your manufacturer's warranty is protected.

For example: If you have a Fiat, which is still protected by the manufacturer’s warranty, and you choose to book your service at one of our Ford dealerships, we will use Fiat parts or parts manufactured to Original Equipment (OE) quality. Which means that under UK law, your vehicle will still remain within warranty.

You cannot invalidate your manufacturer warranty as long as the above is followed.

What type of service does my car need?

At Motorparks, we will always offer you a service quote specific to your vehicle, as the manufacturer service schedule will often vary depending on your vehicle’s age, mileage and model. We will offer you a full breakdown of costs on our invoices (this includes VAT).

What about your fixed price Priority Service Plan?

Fixed Price Servicing from £13.99 a month*

With our Priority Service Plan, you can spread the cost of your servicing into more manageable interest free payments. There’s no chance of it rising either, as they’re fixed from the moment you take out the plan.

Our Priority Service Plan gives you peace of mind and cuts your motoring costs, while you benefit from:

  • The highest levels of customer care.
  • Manufacturer trained technicians.
  • Guaranteed genuine parts.
  • Full warranty protection.

  • Professional, friendly staff.
  • Regular servicing provides reliability, economy and helps to maintain the value of your vehicle.
  • As a Priority Service Plan guest you can benefit from an extra 10% off any extra work required.

You can take out the Priority Service Plan at any time during the ownership of your car and if you decide to change your car before the end of the plan, you can transfer it onto a new plan for your nice new vehicle.
