Got a question? - FAQs
Cars and vans should be serviced every 12 months, at 12,000 miles or at a mileage recommended by the manufacturer.
The driverhelpline full service includes a full inspection of tyres, brakes and suspension plus extensive checks on lights, instruments and fluids. We also carry out a thorough inspection under the bonnet including brake, fuel and radiator hoses, power steering fluids, with auxiliary drive belt adjustment if needed.
We replace the oil and fit new oil and air filters. We use engine oil specific to your engine, so if your engine needs synthetic or specialist oils, it’s all included in the price we quote you.
An interim service is ideal for vehicles which have regular, short journeys or cover high mileages of typically more than 12,000 miles per year.
An interim service gives you peace of mind between annual services.
We check essentials such as lights, instruments and fluid levels, together with a complete tyre and suspension inspection. A visual brake inspection is also included.
We also replace the oil and fit new oil and air filters. Again, we use engine oil specific to your engine, so if your engine needs synthetic or specialist oils, it’s all included in the price we quote you.
When you book an MOT with a service we can save time inspecting your vehicle which means you save money.
There are lots of reasons to make sure your car or van is serviced correctly, it always works out better in the long run.
There’s lots you can’t see when you drive your car. Critical components in the engine, suspension and braking system all wear as a result of the mileage you do, and as a function of time. You may not notice this slight deterioration as it develops day by day, but a service will find out any issues.
We can help to identify potential problems before they become real ones and advise you what do do about them and when to do it.
Our servicing, carried out regularly, provides you with the peace of mind that your car or van is in the best condition.
If you service your car or van correctly, you drastically reduce your chance of breaking down. A breakdown costs money to recover and is hugely inconvenient because your vehicle will be off the road and you’ll have to pay for other transport until it is fixed.
One key area is engine oil, which has to work very hard to make sure your engine is at peak performance. Oil degrades over time and with use, so failure to change to new, clean oil at the right time will lead to damage to the engine’s internals and even cause the engine to seize.
A service highlights issues that you many need to have rectified or at least keep and eye on, no matter how good you feel your car is running today.
Replacement air and oil filters also make your engine run smoother and helps it to be more fuel efficient, which means you save at the pump.
So it’s clearly a false economy if you think you are saving a few quid by not having your car serviced when it’s needed.
Buying a new car or van is expensive, so it makes sense to get the most out of the vehicle you own. The better you treat your vehicle, the longer it will last.
It makes economic sense to hold on to a vehicle, but that only works if you have regular servicing which is crucial to making sure you have hassle-free motoring.
An unquestionable added bonus when selling a car is proof of regular servicing. A service from driverhelpline gives you that ‘stamp’ in the service record book which increases the value if you decide to sell your vehicle, it also makes it more attractive to likely buyers.
