One thing that many new motorists find themselves asking is: “Do I really need to get my car serviced?” It’s not a topic likely to be addressed in a driving lesson, and in this day and age when money can be rather tight, people are suspicious of any “extra” expenditure beyond what is completely essential or legally mandated. This is why we feel it’s necessary, as the St Albans and Harpenden areas’ trusted automotive expert, to go on record with this latest blog entry and show how car servicing is 100% an essential maintenance procedure.

Regular car servicing keeps everything in working order and allows our mechanics to spot any emerging issues your vehicle might be showing signs of; we can then recommend appropriate repairs to prevent the issue worsening, putting your safety and the safety of fellow St Albans and Harpenden motorists in danger.

Less Chance of Breakdown
A breakdown, while less earth shattering than a dangerous accident, is still a huge inconvenience. You’ll have to wait for your vehicle to be recovered, and if you don’t have the right coverage, be left with a nasty bill. Simply put, it can ruin your day, week and even month! Factor in the cost of repairs, and you can see why car servicing offers such value for money.
Cheaper Fuel Costs
Did you know that car servicing also improves fuel efficiency? Getting more miles to the gallon allows St Albans and Harpenden clients not just to save money at the pumps, but to reduce their carbon footprint. With climate catastrophe looming in the near future, this is more important than ever before…
Maintain Vehicle Value
Most motorists, once they get to the point where they wish to upgrade their vehicle, will look to sell their existing one second hand or trade it in via a dealership. The amount they get directly correlates with how well they’ve looked after it. A vehicle with record of regular car servicing will get you much more toward your new purchase; this is just another respect in which car servicing effectively “pays for itself”.
