When should you choose an Interim over Full Car Service and how to find a Good Garage that you can rely on?

As a rule, every car driver that owns a car, older than three years, is obligated to service it every 12 000 miles or 6 months (depending on whichever comes first). However, when it comes to car service, it is really important to understand the difference between Interim and Full Car Service, in order to ensure a suitable check for your car and stay safe on the road at the same time.

–          What is Interim Car Service and what does it include?

Long story short, you should choose an Interim Car Service, if you drive 20000 or more miles per year. In other words, this check is more suitable for mileage drivers that make short journeys more often and exceed 2000 miles a month.

This type of service should be made every 6 months. It’s basically a change of the oil and some additional checks, including fluids levels, engine, tyres, batteries and lights checks.
