Car & Van Servicing in Hinckley

Regular routine maintenance of your vehicle is essential if you want to keep it in tip top condition. Having a car or van service done by a professional helps maintain the resale value of your vehicle as well as identifying potential faults early before they develop into more serious problems.

Different vehicles require diiferent servicing levels depending on age and make and model of vehicle. Every vehicle manufacturer provides a detailed list of maintenance tasks for a given vehicle which can be found in the manufacturer's handbook that is issued with all vehicles.

At Terry Taylor Garages we will always work to the manufacturers recommended service schedules but don't worry if you do not have your handbook - we have access to all vehicle manufacturers maintenance schedules.
