Car Servicing – Regular car servicing affords many benefits, including increased fuel efficiency, longer vehicle lifespan, and the opportunity to catch any developing mechanical problems early on (which we can nip in the bud via timely car repairs). Our car servicing is done in accordance with vehicle manufacturers’ service schedules and won’t invalidate your vehicle’s warranty.


What’s more, we can offer car servicing packages at more competitive prices than main dealerships and larger garages around Warrington. But paying less won’t mean you get a less thorough or accurate service, we’ll still look over an extensive checklist of essential components, and complete important maintenance services like topping up your oil, changing your fuel filter etc.

MOT Testing – Warrington motorists are legally obliged to have their vehicle tested for roadworthiness every year, if said vehicle is over three years old and manufactured after 1960. It’s our aim to take the hassle and stress out of MOT testing; we’ll conduct it whenever is best for you, to ensure minimal disruption to your daily routine. Should you fail MOT testing, we’ll explain to you exactly what the issue is, and recommend the best course of action.


If you should require car repairs or car servicing to pass MOT testing, we’ll be able to perform it on the spot. It’s our aim to be an honest and transparent car garage; we’ll never find work that doesn’t need to be done, and always explain to you in layman’s terms exactly what we’re doing and why we’re doing it.

Air Conditioning – Have you noticed your air conditioning isn’t working quite as efficiently as it should be? It may be that it needs re-gassing, servicing or repair. This is an area of speciality for the staff at our Warrington car garage. We recommend motorists have their car air conditioning serviced at least every two years to ensure optimal functionality.

Four Wheel Alignment – Ensuring your wheels are properly aligned will not only improve road safety and performance, but reduce the amount you spend on petrol and having new tyres fitted. This is because poorly aligned wheels meet the road unevenly, subjecting certain key areas of the tyre to an excessive amount of stress and wear, while reducing fuel economy.


Wheel alignment involves adjusting three key components: the angle of the wheel (camber), angle of the steering pivot (caster), and how far the wheel points outward or inward (toe). Each affects your driving experience. When you come in for our four wheel alignment service, we’ll use apparatus that will accurately measure the orientation and position of your wheels. Cross-checking our findings against your manufacturer’s recommended settings, we can make precise alterations that will result in perfect alignment and a responsive, safe, efficient drive.
