How to save on car maintenance, servicing and MOTS.
By following these tips, you can save money on car maintenance, servicing, and MOTs without sacrificing the safety and performance of your vehicle.:
Maintain your car
Regularly maintain your car: Keeping your car maintained regularly can prevent bigger problems from developing and save you money in the long run. Regular oil changes, tyre and brake checks can keep your car running efficiently and safely.
Find a reliable mechanic
Look for a reputable and reliable mechanic who won't overcharge you for services. Ask friends and family for recommendations and check reviews online. Don't forget to check out the reviews on google and our website for HP Motors Ltd, Riseley.
Check your car’s owner's manual
Your car’s owner's manual will have recommendations for maintenance schedules and what type of oil, filters, and fluids your car needs. Following these recommendations can save you money on unnecessary services.
Some car maintenance tasks can be done at home, such as changing wiper blades or air filters. Learning basic car maintenance can save you money in labour costs. Have a look on our website at our blog posts for some easy to follow videos.
Shop around for MOTs and servicing
Look for deals on MOTs and servicing. Some garages offer discounted rates during slower times of the year or for new customers. Compare prices before committing to a garage. Here at HP Motors we offer a discounted rate when you book both an MOT and service at the same time. For more details give us a call on 01234 708700.
Keep your car clean:
Regularly washing and cleaning your car can prevent rust and prolong the life of your car’s paint and body. It can also help identify potential problems before they become more serious and costly.
Aggressive driving, speeding, and hard braking can put unnecessary stress on your car’s components and increase wear and tear. Driving sensibly can reduce the need for repairs and save you money on fuel costs.
