To find a trustworthy garage isn’t easy sometimes not only in Loughborough. When searching, there are several things to keep in mind. First of all, you need to check whether the garage has the capacity of the right people who will take care of your car in the best way. It does matter whether you would rely on the garage next to your house, where your car will get serviced in one month by the car mechanic, who is the only employee there, or the garage you chose has 5, 10 or 20 people staff. A trustworthy garage takes care of solving your problem permanently, rather than taking your money as often as possible. A perfect service would include even what you have not thought of.

Services each Reliable Garage should offer

A good trustworthy garage usually offers a wide range of services. Some of them are listed below:

  • MOT
  • Car service
  • Auto repairs
  • Car diagnostics
  • Car body repairs

MOT (Car Inspection)

An MOT check is the mandatory yearly examination of your vehicle that needs to be carried out in a certified MOT service centre. During the MOT test, the vehicle is inspected using special equipment to verify that its systems are functioning properly according to all safety and environmental standards. Before the test, it is a good idea to check it by yourself if the main systems and components (lights, braking system, tires etc.) are working correctly. The certificate that each MOT centre can issue is mandatory by law and in order to make sure that your car is in good condition.

Car Service (Full and Interim Servicing)

Car service is the most basic, periodic inspection of your vehicle, which involves changing engine oil and oil filter. The inspection usually covers components directly related to the safety of the driver and passengers, such as the braking, fuel, cooling system and the air conditioning. The check should be carried out regularly. Except full servicing, that needs to be carried out every 12 months, most car service centres offer also interim servicing (every 6 months) for vehicles that need to get more frequent checks as per the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Auto Repairs

Every driver would agree that to feel the steady movements of a car is one of the greatest pleasures. Reaching an excellent driving experience and high level of safety is possible only when the electrical and mechanical systems of the vehicle are in good condition. In cases of strange noises coming from the car engine or lights appearing on the instrument panel, auto repair might be necessary. If this happens do not compromise yours and your family’s safety.  Use the services of reputable car repair centre like Duke Street Motors* in Loughborough for example, where qualified mechanics will take good care of your vehicle.

Car Diagnostics

If there is something wrong with the way your car is functioning- there are strange and disturbing noises, the engine runs unevenly or something is wrong with the brakes, that means some of the systems and mechanics of the vehicle are not working properly. If you can not find out what the damage is, the easiest way to identify the problem would be to use a car diagnostic service. If you decide to get your car repaired, the price for the vehicle diagnostic might even be deducted from the total repair cost at some car service centres.

Car Body Repairs

Car accidents happen even to the best drivers. In order to restore the perfect look of your vehicle, you can use car body repair services in some of the reliable auto body shops. Auto body repairs might include vandalism dent repairs, bumper and wheel repair or replacement, car resprays, replacement of broken lights, side mirrors etc.
