In a world where costs seem to be ever rising, servicing your car may seem like the least of your worries. But as we really know deep down, keeping a motor vehicle road worthy with regular servicing can be the difference between life and death in some accident cases.
As a parent or guardian of a new, young driver it really is so important that they understand just how critical it is to look after a vehicle with regular servicing to keep the car safe on the roads. Not just for them but for other drivers too.
Here are key points to remember:
It saves you money
A healthy car requires less work. Cars that have been serviced are less likely to require big fixtures later down the road.
You’re protecting yourself
While you may be able to check certain items on your car, any oversights could be potentially lethal. An MOT will pick up on anything unsafe but having a six-month car service will ensure you are kept safe year round.
Works favourably if an accident occurred
If your car was declared a total loss, insurers may take your service history into consideration when calculating its pre-accident value. A full and thorough service history may mean that your car insurer looks more favourably on your vehicle.
It maintains the warranty
Having your car serviced regularly helps protect the warranty on a new car. If the car is not serviced to the manufacturer’s standards, the warranty could become invalid, which could leave you out of pocket should something go wrong.
