Car Servicing


Regular car servicing from AB Motor Vehicle Services will help your vehicle run efficiently and keep your maintenance costs to a minimum. We service all makes and models and our car service covers important safety areas such as brakes, steering, suspension and tyres to help prevent component failure and potentially expensive repairs.

We will stamp your service book to ensure your vehicles history is maintained.

Full Service

A full service is an in-depth inspection of your car that includes replacement of all relevant filters (air/pollen/fuel), replacing the spark plugs and an oil change. In addition to both the front/rear brakes the parking brake is also checked along with the air condition. Full details can be found in the table below.

Interim Service

An interim service is a visual inspection that includes an oil and filter change and top up of any under the bonnet fluid levels. Full details can be found in the table below.
