Car Service

This is what we do when we service your car

Should you require a courtesy car, both automatic or manual options are available. Please specify your preference at the time of booking to avoid disappointment.

Sadly it is difficult to give an estimate for a service as it will depends on the age and mileage of your vehicle and whether it has been regularly serviced or not.

Service intervals recommended by manufacturers are based on cars driven in the mainland or on the continent and not always suited to Island driving. This is why we recommend that your car should be serviced every year or every 5000 miles, whichever comes first.
