People generally find car services are like stepping into the unknown. The idea of leaving your car in the hands of a stranger can seem counter intuitive and without knowing what’s happening it can also feel little worrying.

What’s being done, what parts are being replaced, what exactly should I expect once the service has been completed?


With all of this confusion in mind we set out to communicate thoroughly with our customers to give peace of mind and even educate our customers on the process. We feel this is what build trust and separates us from regular mechanical workshops. 

Generally car services can be broken into two types; there are the minor services (generally every 10-15 thousand km depending on manufacturer) and the major services (generally every 30-45 thousand kilometres depending on manufacturer). Minor car services are generally rather quick (as little as 90 minutes) and generally only include changing oil and oil filters with a few other minor jobs (see below) also involved. This is in stark contrast to the more comprehensive and more costly business of the major car service. The services vary deeply depending on the make and model of a given vehicle, the most common elements of the major and minor services are listed to the right.
