    Honestly i was a bit suspicious that someone I didn't know was collecting my car. However Fixter found me a great mechanic with brown n rose. They picked it up and delivered it back in a timely manner. They even went to the trouble of giving it a quick wash and vac. I liked the service so much I hav...

  • Mike Penrose

    An excellent service. One of the best web based providers I have dealt with. It took two minutes to organise the service, they turned up on time, were polite and efficient, returned the car on time with a full report and were very reasonably priced. An unreserved recommendation.

    Great reliable service. The local Fixter Hero has great customer service skills and always arrives on time. The work is done in a timely manner and my car comes back early or on time, with a clean. Would recommend the service to family and friends.

What does a service include on a car?

Depending on which service you choose, your car will receive numerous essential checks to determine the wear and tear on your vehicle. The results of those checks will assign the replacement of consumable items, fluids and parts where required.

Most services include checks to fluids, filters, lights, tyres, exhaust systems, brakes, steering and engine operation.

Fixter offers three kinds of services, depending on your mileage, with exact prices dependent on your car's age, model, make and engine size. All three exceed virtually all manufacturers' recommended inspections.

Full service: 71 maintenance checks

  • Drain engine oil, refill, replace oil filter and checks for excessive leaks.
  • Replace air filter.

Major service: 71 maintenance checks

  • Drain engine oil, refill, replace oil filter and checks for excessive leaks
  • Replace air filter.
  • Replace cabin filter.
  • Replace fuel filter (if needed).
  • Replacing of brake fluid and coolant.

Interim service (recommended for high-mileage motorists): 40 maintenance checks

  • Oil change; checks for any excessive leaking

How much does it cost to service your car?

Statistics suggest a typical UK car service costs £161. But what does the average UK car service consist of?

There are 3 types of service. An Interim Service , a Major Service and a Full Service. Depending on which you choose and what car you drive, prices can reach up to £500.

What does a major service include?

A major service is the most intensive option of the 3 levels. It includes the most checks of your car operation and the replacement of all consumable fluids and filters. Replacements should include spark plugs, coolant, brake fluid, oil, oil and air filters, possibly timing and drive belts, fuel filters, cabin filters, and more.

How often should you get a major service on your car?

It's recommended that a car should have a major service every 24 months or after every 24,000 miles of travel.

What does a full service include?

A full service will include extensive checks to your car's engine, bodywork, radiator, wheels and tyres, spark plugs, antifreeze and coolant, timing and drive belts, fans, alternator, clutch, brakes, gearbox operation and more. It is a thorough action, replacing fluids and filters where required and repairing any faults found during the process.

How often should you get a full service on your car?

It's recommended that a car should have a full service every year or after every around 12,000 miles of travel.

What's included in an interim service?

An interim service is the most basic service, designed to keep higher-mileage driver's cars healthy and roadworthy between full or major services. Your car will still receive plenty of maintenance checks to make sure it's in roadworthy condition. An oil change is almost always included, and inspections carried out on many filters, with replacements made where necessary.

How often should you have an interim service?

It's recommended that a car should have an interim service every 6 months if drivers are covering higher mileages—around 2,000 miles a month.

What happens if you don't service your car on time?

If you don't service your car regularly, or miss the recommended intervals, you may find that its performance suffers. Dirty and contaminated oil can cause engine damage. Worn brake pads will reduce the efficiency of your brakes. If you fail to spot a worn and poorly performing cam belt, it could lead to irreparable engine damage.

A service can spot problems before they happen. Identifying trouble areas in advance can save you from much worse and more costly problems further down the line.

How long does it take to do a major service?

A major service should take 2 to 4 hours, depending on what each check reveals and the amount of work required to reach the ideal standard of operation.

How long does it take to do a full service?

A full service should take an hour or two, depending on what each check reveals and the amount of work required to reach the ideal standard of operation.

How long does it take to do an interim service?

An interim service shouldn't take much more than an hour, depending on what the checks reveal and the amount of work required to reach the ideal standard of operation.

What are the steps to servicing a car?

There are many actions involved in servicing a car. Typically: changing the engine oil, replacing oil, air and fuel filters, replacing spark plugs, checking brake fluid levels, pads and discs, coolant hoses, charging systems, battery, power steering fluid, tyres, lights, windows, wipers, screenwash, lubricate components, and inspect timing belt.

What is the purpose of a car service?

Regular car servicing checks the condition of your car, and that each component and system is in prime working order. Consumable items are checked and replaced where necessary, ensuring that the appropriate level of protection is provided for the engine and items prone to wear are safe and in premium order.

Will a service make my car run better?

Yes. By replacing worn components or overworked oil and other fluids and filters, your car will handle better, run more smoothly, brake more efficiently and offer better fuel consumption. A service also provides greater reliability, as parts that are worn will be replaced before they break, and lesser faults corrected before they become major issues.

Regular servicing will also ensure your car the best chance of a long life.

Is a car service necessary?

Servicing your car is highly recommended to keep it running smoothly and problem-free. A service is a fabulous way of extending the life of your car, identifying potential problems and preventing major issues and breakdowns.

Although servicing your car isn't a legal requirement, we believe it's one of the most important parts of maintaining your vehicle.

Does it invalid my insurance if I don't service my car at suggested intervals?

Indirectly, yes. Some insurance companies have the power to invalidate your insurance if your car is deemed unsafe or unroadworthy. This is even more pertinent at the time of an accident or breakdown. Each policy is different, but many contain clauses about vehicle negligence and failing to repair known issues.
