Car Service and Repair - How Can I Find Garages Near Me?
Arranging a car service or looking for a local garage for a car repair can be time-consuming and sometimes daunting.
MotorBreaker makes it easy to find local garages and service providers all in one place. We offer easy access to our national network. Each garage or motoring service provider registered on our website has a full business page; check their services, customer reviews, car servicing and car repair deals and promotions.
Simply enter your postcode to search for a local garage or any type of car service that you need from car body repair, mobile mechanic, breakdown recovery, car valeting and more!
Most of the registered businesses on our network also buy and sell used cars or salvage vehicles and trade new and used auto parts. If a broken car is too expensive for you to repair, your local garage or car service provider may offer to buy your car or part-exchange it for a quality used car. The choice is always yours!
Car service or repair – what should you expect?
Explain the problem in as much detail as possible, for example if you need to repair car dents or a scratched bumper, send a picture of the damage, the vehicle paint code and any additional relevant information. The more information you provide to the garage, the more accurate the car service or repair quote. You may also need to bring your car to the garage for a more precise assessment dependent on the damage sustained.
The garages on MotorBreaker offer a wide range of vehicle services for any make and model of car, from MOT testing, engine diagnostics, repair, and steering alignment to more complex vehicle repairs, such as car body repairs for badly damaged vehicles. Many garages on our site can provide and fit new or used OEM parts, or matched quality parts, as per your requirements or instructions. These services are often less expensive than main dealers and franchised networks.
Your car’s servicing needs are affected by a range of factors. Newer cars should be serviced once a year while older cars may require a service every six months. Service requirements will also be affected by how often you use your car. The details of your car’s servicing needs can be found in your car’s manual.
When looking for a car service or repair, it's important that you establish what the service includes. A reputable garage should provide you with a checklist and the estimated quote for your car repair. A good garage or mechanic would advise you on the condition of your car and any parts needed. Always read the terms and conditions prior the commencement of repairs, get a written confirmation of the car service checklist and repair quote including a guarantee for the car parts to be replaced. Several quotations from different garages is advisable in order to get the best deal.
Can car servicing records can become handy when selling a car?
It’s always important to get a garage stamp on your car service book after your vehicle service or repairs have been completed. It is highly recommended that you maintain a record and proof of purchase in case any problems occur post service. Additionally, proof of all previous work and part changes will make it easier to sell a car as it fosters confidence and trust with potential buyers.
