Car Servicing in Tunbridge Wells & the Surrounding Areas | Interim & Full Servicing from Local Mechanics

When was the last time you took your vehicle to the mechanic for servicing? Unlike annual MOT testing, car servicing isn’t a legal requirement. But this is only because varying mileage milestones dictate when you need to visit a garage. Servicing plays a vital role in keeping your car in optimal condition as it reduces the risk of unexpected breakdowns, inefficient performance and larger, more costly repairs. Servicing also helps to preserve your vehicle’s resale value too.

Based in Tunbridge Wells, G & R Autos performs interim and full car servicing. Motorists from across Crowborough, Hildenborough, Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Paddock Wood, Matfield, Brenchley, Groombridge and the neighbouring areas choose us for this key service. This is thanks to our reputation for unmatched workmanship and customer care. Contact us to discuss all your auto repair needs.

Current industry guidelines advise having your car serviced every year. If you delay your service, be it by months or even indefinitely, you only partake in a false economy. Because regular servicing is the most effective way to maintain your car’s performance, it also helps to lower long-term costs.

We share decades of experience as vehicle mechanics. We use this know-how, along with a meticulous attention to detail, to identify small issues before they develop into bigger problems.

This allows us to provide a fast turnaround without any compromise in standards. Most importantly, this gets you back out on the roads of Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks, Hildenborough and the wider Kent area with minimal disruption.

Your Car Servicing Options

Whether you’re in Crowborough, Tonbridge or the surrounding areas, your specific servicing needs depend on your vehicle’s mileage. In fact, this is why servicing isn’t a legal requirement: because a uniform approach does not benefit all motorists equally.

Put simply, a low-mileage driver has distinctly different needs when compared with a high-mileage driver.

The mechanics at G & R Autos provide both types of car servicing:

  • Interim Service – If most of your driving involves regular short journeys in and around town, interim servicing will suit you best. This option also gives peace of mind between full services if you clock up significant mileage. You should have this service every 6 months or after 6,000 miles travelled, whichever comes first.

  • Full Service – This service represents your vehicle’s annual maintenance programme. When teamed with safe driving practices, there’s no better way to keep your car fully operational and on the road. You should have this service every 12 months or after 10,000 to 12,000 miles travelled, whichever comes first.

For optimal protection, you should alternate between interim and full services.

Like any reputable mechanic, G & R Autos stamps your service book upon completion. By keeping this document up to date, you will find it much easier to sell your vehicle for an attractive price in the future.

As a customer-focused company, we recognise that bringing your car in for servicing is an inconvenience. To minimise disruption and hassle, we provide a free collection and delivery service within a 5-mile radius of our workshop in Tunbridge Wells.
