As a trusted local garage in the Redhill area, Redhill Classics Ltd provides both interim and full car servicing, as well as a vehicle repair service covering anything from brake repairs to exhaust repairs. With over 20 years of combined trade and industry experience, our small team has seen first-hand not only the importance of car servicing and any subsequent repairs, but the difference they can make in the longevity of a car’s roadworthiness.
There isn’t a universal system for car servicing. The specifics depend on the recommendations of individual manufacturers as stated in their own servicing schedule, usually found in the manual pack.
In order to maintain the optimum performance of a vehicle, as well as ensuring its long-term roadworthiness or potential sell-on value, we strongly recommend that our Redhill customers keep an up-to-date service record.
Naturally, the timely undertaking of any brake repairs, or similarly vital parts, is equally important.
Despite the lack of a universal approach to car servicing, vehicle owners in Redhill and the surrounding areas most commonly encounter it in the following forms:
Interim Car Servicing – Undertaken every 6,000 miles or after every 6 months, whichever arrives sooner
Full Car Servicing – Carried out after 12,000 miles or every 12 months, whichever arrives first
Unlike an MOT, car servicing isn’t a legal requirement for our Redhill customers. But that’s not to say it should be taken any less seriously. Car servicing measures a vehicle’s performance and aims to keep it as optimal as possible.
Not only does this include maintaining efficiency (reducing fuel costs), it also ensures maximum safety and reduces the likelihood of future breakdowns and the need for any costly repairs.
Interim car servicing includes the following checks:
Timing Belt Interval
All Windscreen Wipers & Washers
Auxiliary & Fan Belts
Gearbox & Axel Oil
All Fluid Levels
Engine Oil & Oil Filter Replaced
Steering & Suspension
Brake Pipes, Fuel Lines and Hoses
Checks for Leakage from Callipers/Cylinders
Drums & Discs
In addition, full car servicing contains all of the above as well as checks on the doors, coolant systems, wheels and bearings, engine cooling fan, throttle, distributor cap, engine and gearbox mounts, starter motor, and front and rear brakes.
The scope of possibility for vehicle repairs makes it impossible to cover each one individually. From brake repairs to welding and fabrication for classic cars, our experienced personnel work on all models, old and new, for our valued customers in Redhill and the surrounding areas.
Here at Redhill Classics Ltd we recognise the frustration and inconvenience of vehicle repairs. This is why, workload permitting, we turnaround repair work as swiftly as possibly in order to get our customers back on the road again.
So whether you need repairs related to car servicing, essential work such as brake repairs, or any emergency repair work, our courteous, professional personnel are ready to help.
