The importance of regular maintenance

A lot of people try to save money by not getting their vehicle serviced regularly with a car mechanics service. Unfortunately this can be very costly in the long run.

One of the main functions of oil is to remove contaminates from the engine. When the oil is not changed regularly these contaminates build up and thicken the oil, turning it to sludge – which then blocks the oil filter and critical oil passages, starving the engine of lubrication. Take a look at these examples below that unfortunately ended up with bigger problems through lack of a regular car mechanics service.

What our customers say

Thank you for your letter and business cards which I received yesterday. I was so impressed with your service, value for money and speed of turn around that I have already been telling all my friends about your business. I will pass on your business cards and details. Thank you so much for the work you did on my car last week, I appreciate it very much.


I was looking for a thorough, professional mechanic in the local area and Steve told me of the attention to detail required there. I couldn’t be happier! The car is running better than ever and the repair of the other problems before they became major, demonstrates the attention to detail previously mentioned. Your after service response to my call was handled promptly and without hesitation. I just wanted to say a big thank you for your professionalism and friendly service. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone needing a great mechanic. Thank you again and see you soon with our other car (and continued servicing of both).
