Vehicle Service and Maintenance

A safe pair of hands for all vehicles of all ages

At Advanced Motorcare we undertake all vehicle maintenance in accordance with the customer and vehicles requirements in mind. We follow a comprehensive service guide developed internally and overlay specific manufacturer and CBS requirements where applicable.

Although we aim to offer the same, high quality, service to all customer we also realise different vehicles at different stages in their life cycle require different levels of service to suit customer budgets.

Vehicle within Manufacturer Warranty

Vehicles still covered under manufacturer warranty must be serviced in accordance with the manufacturer service guides in order to maintain cover and vehicle reliability. This includes following the service interval requirements and condition based service advisories, using correct original parts and recommended / approved lubricants together with updating service records accurately.

Your Goal: Manufacturer level servicing, maintain warranty cover, independent prices
Our Approach: Manufacturer Specified and CBS Servicing
Parts: Genuine
Lubricants: Manufacturer Approved
Service Stamp: Complete vehicle service records in accordance with manufacturer requirements. Update online service book where available and applicable. Maintain internal record of all services undertaken.

Vehicle out of Manufacturer Warranty

Just because the manufacturer warranty has expired does not mean your vehicle needs any lesser maintenance. However there is more flexibility around the parts, lubricants and other anciliary items used, whilst still maintaining a high quality service. Service intervals for Interim, Main and Condition Based Servicing should be maintained.

Your Goal: Good, reliable servicing to dealer quality, on a realistic budget
Our Approach: Our Service and CBS and Manufacturer Specialist Requirements
Parts: Genuine or Equivalent to customer choice
Lubricants: High Quality Equivalent
Service Stamp: Complete vehicle service records in accordance with manufacturer requirements. Update online service book where available and applicable. Maintain internal record of all services undertaken.

Older vehicle, no warranty

As vehicles age their parts begin to wear and the age may take it's toll. However following a comprehensive maintenance schedule will increase the overall lifetime of a vehicle with correct Interim and Main service requirements still observed. The choice of parts becomes wider with high quality third party suppliers and certified reconditioned components helping reduce maintenance costs.

Your Goal: Maintenance and service on a budget
Our Approach: Maintenance Service and CBS and Manufacturer Specialist Intervals under advisement
Parts: Genuine, third party, reconditioned to customer budget
Lubricants: Quality
Service Stamp: Complete vehicle service records. Update online service book where available and applicable. Maintain internal record of all services undertaken.

We operate a comprehensive oversight and monitoring programme within our workshop. Each vehicle is issued with a job sheet outlining the work scheduled and service required.

Each mechanic follows the guide reflected in our service plan, noting items not included that may need attention, items to note and other service related information.

On completion, each job sheet is checked and recorded to ensure the items have been completed, any observations that may require attention have been reported to the customer and any agreed further remedial action completed.

Completed work undergoes a secondary Quality Control check to ensure work is completed correctly and safety advice has been followed.

Within the workshop we operate a secondary checking approach to ensure quality and safety. Where certain precautions are required then a second person will check work has been completed adquately, this may include ensuring correct fitting or filling of items and lubricants, correct torque or tightness of bolts / nuts etc. has been observed.
