Manufacturers unanimously agree that regular car servicing is an essential aspect of vehicle maintenance. To see exactly how often they recommend booking in, consult your manufacturer’s handbook; as a general rule, we’d recommend our Redhill and Reigate clients visit for an interim service every six months, and a full service every year.
Car servicing involves a qualified and experienced mechanic running through an extensive checklist, performing general maintenance tasks and ensuring that the condition of all vital internal and external components are in optimal working order. It also involves an oil change, change of filter, steering alignment and tests on everything from suspension and battery condition, to brakes, tyres, exhausts and similar vital components.
Most Redhill and Reigate motorists choose to trade in or sell their vehicle at the end of its lifetime. Car servicing has the dual benefit of ensuring that your vehicle lasts longer, and your investment is protected. A well-serviced vehicle will mean you get a decent sum towards your next purchase. The alternative is it proves altogether unsellable!

Cars, especially the latest models, are complex things with many internal and external components that can experience issues.

We understand that having your vehicle repaired might cause inconvenience and many of our clients need to remain mobile while our team does what it does best. If you need a courtesy car while we complete repairs on your own vehicle, let us know in advance and we’ll have one available when you arrive at our workshop. Please be aware that our courtesy cars are incredibly popular and we may not have one available at short notice. A nominal charge may apply in some cases.
To discuss the issue you’re currently experiencing or to book an appointment, pick up the phone and call 01737 763 838. You can also book car repairs and diagnostics service with our online tool.
While the “old school” approach of hands-on diagnostics is still very much an important weapon at the modern mechanic’s disposal, there are also some helpful tools which allow us to carry out fast and accurate diagnostics by reading your vehicle’s Engine Control Unit. This feeds us error codes that we can interpret to figure out exactly what’s gone wrong.
Not all garages around Redhill and Reigate have the same standard of diagnostics equipment – but at Advanced Vehicle Centre, we live up to our name by constantly investing in our workshop to ensure we can deliver the gold standard in automotive services to each and every client who walks through our doors.
