We are proud to announce that our Andover branch now offer car servicing! Merityre Specialists Andover offer a range of servicing options, starting from just £89.99, which will help to maintain the condition of your vehicle and extend its life. We have a service to suit all driver and vehicle requirements: Bronze, Silver and Gold - read about our servicing options here.
You should have your car serviced every 12 months, or 12,000 miles – whichever comes soonest – this helps to keep it in good condition and maintain your vehicle manufacturer’s warranty. High mileage vehicles also require additional servicing and you should consider also having a short service every 6 months if you frequently use your car to drive long distances.
Many people underestimate the importance of a car service, as they believe it is the same as an MOT, which is not the case. An MOT is a test designed by the government to ensure that your vehicle is roadworthy. It is a legal requirement that your vehicle has a valid MOT certificate in order for you to drive it. A car service looks after the mechanical aspects of your vehicle, which are not inspected as part of the MOT test.
A car service will check the parts of your vehicle that are subject to wear, including the exhaust and brakes to ensure that they are in good working condition. During a service, you will be informed of any repairs you may require.
Although it may seem expensive at the time, regular car servicing will save you money in the long run. This is because a healthy vehicle tends to be more affordable, as problems can be identified before damage is created and a healthy engine will reduce fuel consumption.
Also, if you decide to sell your vehicle, a full service history will be preferred by many prospective buyers and if you have a book full of service stamps the value of your vehicle can significantly increase.
