On this page, we share expert advice on finding trustworthy garages for keeping your vehicle in roadworthy conditions.
Keeping your car in good condition is essential for maintaining the safety of yourself and others, as well as increasing the life-span and performance of your vehicle. This includes having regular, yearly car servicing and MOT tests carried out by reputable garages. If you have a new car, you may be mistaken in thinking this means taking your vehicle to a dealership associated with your model, but in fact most local, independent garages are certified and experienced in repairing, servicing and checking vehicles of any type and can often source high-quality parts at a more affordable rate.
When looking for trusted garages in the Bicester, Kidlington and Brackley areas consider the following questions to ensure they are the right garage for you:
1. Are they an approved and insured garage?
Check online or speak to a technician at the garage to check that they are an approved facility, certified to carry-out MOTs and car servicing. Reputable garages should be approved by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), formerly known as VOSA, to carry-out tests on cars and commercial vehicles.
2. Do they have good recommendations?
One of the best ways to find a trustworthy garage is to ask friends and family for recommendations of reliable garages they have used in the Bicester, Kidlington and Brackley areas. We also recommend checking company testimonials and online reviews to see what other customers have thought about their experience with a certain garage.
3. Can you check prices in advance?
If you have an idea of the type of service you require, such as MOTs, car repairs or car servicing, it is worth visiting your local garage or phone garages in the area to see if they offer free quotations. You may also be able to get an idea on hourly rates, if you are unsure of the about repairs and other services you may need.
