Servicing Redhill Reigate Godstone

Garages service price allows for the replacement of ALL SERVICE ITEMS* and an extensive inspection of your vehicle (*Spark plugs, Oil, Air, Fuel, and Pollen Filters – See service checklist below.)

Where a service item is not required, (due to low mileage or long life parts**) this saving will be clearly deducted from your final bill.

A Full Service is just that. As standard we will replace the appropriate oil, oil filter, air filter, pollen filter, fuel filter and spark plugs (petrol engines).

However, there are circumstances where a service item may not require replacement. For example; long life fuel filters or iridium or platinum spark plugs that do not warrant changing given the vehicle mileage and interval since they were last replaced.

In these circumstances we will advise the customer and give them the option to decline this item at the time of undertaking the Service. This saving will then be itemised and refunded to you in branch.

 Useful Information

Regular servicing extends the life of your car, improves fuel economy, reduces the risk of avoidable repair bills and the inconvenience of mechanical breakdown.

Most manufacturers recommend that their vehicles are serviced every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

The minimum road safety requirements of an MOT should not be confused as a substitute for servicing your vehicle.

Garages take pride in our work and in providing quality car servicing at sensible prices. Our full service schedule complies with and protects the manufacturers warranty without the associated Main Dealer prices. (Government legislation passed in 2003 relating to “Block Exemption” allows Garages to carry out work on new cars because we use parts of Original Equipment (OE) quality and in accordance with manufacturer requirements.)

As members of the Independent Garage Association (IGA) and the Trust My Garage scheme we are committed to the highest standards and outstanding customer service.

Wherever possible we recommend combining a service with an MOT because there are elements of the MOT test that servicing does not cover e.g. brake performance readings, emissions testing and headlight aim.

At an additional charge all branches offer a car wash and hoover. Contact your local branch for more information.

Collect & Return Service

If you book a service at our Godstone branch, you could take advantage of our Collection and Delivery service. (Additional charge applies. Please contact our branch in Godstone for further information).

** long life service parts such as platinum / iridium spark plugs and long life fuel filters are specifically designed to last for greater distances and periods. These parts may not need to be replaced with every service. Manufacturing schedules are always consulted to confirm replacement intervals.

Motorstore can also supply and fit exhausts, water pumps, alternators, starter motor, cambelts, brakes and clutches to your car or light van.
