Make your annual car maintenance and MOT a priority
For us, our duty of care to our customers doesn’t stop at the handover; our service centres are ready and waiting to look after your car well into the future. All across East Anglia, our EMG branches are home to experienced technicians using the latest equipment so that we can offer servicing, MOTs, repairs and diagnostics for any make and model.
At this time of year, you may be getting your annual to-dos organised, which could include your car’s service and MOT. It’s vital to get these booked in with a reputable service centre, that has access to manufacturer parts and state-of-the-art technology - choose any one of our branches across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and Hertfordshire for this reassurance.
Why is getting your car serviced important?
Your annual service is an essential part of your car maintenance, and whilst skipping it to save money in the short term might be tempting to some, it really won’t pay off later down the line.
Here are 5 reasons why getting your car serviced in 2023 is important…
Reason 1: To keep things safe
A poorly maintained car runs the risk of something going wrong that could endanger your life as well as other road users and pedestrians. Problems that have been left to escalate that could have been picked up early on at the point of servicing could have catastrophic consequences out on the roads - and it wouldn’t be great news for your bank balance either.
Reason 2: To reduce costs in the future
Neglecting to get your car serviced is a false economy; as we’ve mentioned, problems that haven’t been identified in time can worsen and become expensive. The cost saving you’ve made on the service could then double or treble, and this could have been avoided through a once-over with an experienced car technician - something a service gives you an opportunity for.
Reason 3: To protect the car’s resale value
The presence of full service history to back up the credentials of a used car, particularly for us as a dealer trusted by manufacturers, can reassure both customers and retailers, often leading to a sealed deal. It shows that a vehicle that has been properly and carefully maintained, and is less likely to cause problems in the future. That’s peace of mind that’s worth paying for.
Reason 4: To reduce inconvenience
Could you do without an unexpected breakdown? Regular servicing gives your car the best chance of staying in good working order, and reduces the likelihood that something within it will fail - because you can bet that it will never happen at a convenient time.
Reason 5: Elongate your car’s lifespan
We rely on our cars in so much of our daily life, and we want to know that we can trust them to keep going as long as we need them to. Regular servicing keeps all the vital parts in working order, so that your car can keep covering the distance for longer.
As the cost of living soars, regular servicing is a good way to reduce your chances of having to spend out on a new car before you need to.
Got questions about your MOT?
Getting your car MOT’d is your legal responsibility, as it ensures that your vehicle is in a safe and roadworthy condition. MOT tests are required by law for most vehicles over three years old, and we’re proud to offer MOT facilities across all our branches located throughout East Anglia.
We’ve worked on a comprehensive MOT guide to answer any questions you may have about the MOT test - it’s ideal if you have questions about your MOT.
