The Motor Car Company can offer a few various options when it comes to car servicing. Most vehicle owners get a full car service once a year or every 12k miles, which ever comes first. Doing so helps keeps your car running at full efficiency, also reducing the risk of breakdown. Even if done irregularly, it can help maintain your car’s value and keep your vehicle on the road for longer.
Full Car Service:
A full car service will ensure that all parts of your vehicle are checked by one of our mechanics. By doing so at least once a year, it helps to keep your vehicle in good working order and also keeps you safer.
Interim Car Service:
If you cover a large number of miles in your vehicle each year, having your car serviced once a year might not be enough. That is where interim car servicing comes in. It helps to look after your vehicle in between your full car servicing. Talk to a mechanic to find out more.

Alloy Wheel Repairs
Our fully equipped workshops can carry out a range of alloy wheel repairs. Just pop in and see us, or call to arrange to have your vehicle collected if needs be.
• For alloy wheel repairs we will remove the whole wheel from the vehicle and deflate the tyre
• We then remove the tyre using specialist machines
• Any damage is then repaired using the most suited techniques
• To prevent corrosion the alloy is primed and heated under infrared lighting
• The primer is flattened to create a smooth finish
• Colour match paint is then applied
• Lacquer is then applied to the wheel and heated until dry
• Finally the tyre is re inflated and re fitted to the vehicle
We will always carry out a final inspection, the process is then complete and your vehicle is ready to drive. Payment is made on inspection of work. If your alloys cannot be repaired for any reason, we will not charge you
