How long does a car service take?

If your car is due a service, you might wonder how long it’ll take our Eurofit Autocentres technicians to complete a thorough check-over.

Unfortunately, there is no simple answer as it largely depends on the vehicle's condition. But we can break down the steps and give you a general idea as to how long you may be kept waiting. 


What happens in a service

It’s important to understand that our technicians must check through a host of parts and systems, whether it's an interim or full service. These include the likes of oil changes, tyre pressures, brake checks and many other tweaks. If a part of your vehicle is overused or underused, it will need checking. The objective of a service is to ensure your car is in top condition.

The importance of a proper service

Every car that’s more than three years old that is not exempt from an MOT, needs a valid MOT certificate before it can be used on public roads. An MOT is a test of all the safety-critical areas of your car, such as the brakes and windscreen. With regular servicing, you can stay on top of your car's general upkeep and not have to worry about safety.

An MOT doesn’t cover your car’s mechanical health

A service doesn’t stop at safety-critical areas. An MOT test simply certifies that the safety-critical areas of your car are in good working order. A service will check all aspects of your car, potentially increasing the resale value as a prospective buyer will be confident about the car’s condition.

How long does a service take

Due to the huge variety of vehicles, we cannot give you a definitive answer. There are several factors which must be taken into account when estimating the time of a full or interim service. Why not book in today and find out?
