It goes without saying that any item that is well maintained – whether it be a piece of clothing, a pair of shoes, an electrical gadget, or even your car, will last much longer than one that isn’t.

Griffin Autos discusses the importance of servicing your car:

Safety

We can often become so accustomed to the various noises our car makes that we ignore them. However, ignoring something that sounds or feels different from usual can often end up being costly.

Having a regular service that is carried out by a reputable garage will give you something money can’t buy – peace of mind. The price of your car service will vary, depending on how many checks are performed – the most common types of service are interim full and major.

It is wise to remember that just because your car feels OK, wear and tear is not always seen or felt. Consequently, a regular service that checks all the components you can’t see is a must.

Longevity

Your car is an investment and if you’ve purchased your car outright, you are probably planning to sell it on at some stage.

Regular servicing not only ensures the longevity of your car, but also keeps any repair or replacement costs down.

Value

The second-hand car market is always competitive, with buyers wanting more for their money and sellers wanting a fair price.

It goes without saying that buyers will favour a car with a good service history over one that has racked up hardly any stamps in its lifetime.
