Most of us have a pretty good idea of the cost of fuel, insurance and road tax. But when it comes to predicting the cost of service, maintenance and repairs, things can get a lot trickier. As you’d expect, all brand new vehicles come with a warranty that covers the failure of any parts which the manufacturer has guaranteed to work correctly for a certain number of years. Unfortunately, these guarantees tend to come with a list of exclusions, the most common of which is anything which could be considered ‘fair wear and tear’. This simple phrase is often the reason servicing costs seem to escalate and the final bill ends up being a lot more than originally quoted. For example, over the next few years, how many tyres will you need to replace, how many wiper blades, batteries or bulbs? Then there’s the cost of all the mandatory servicing routines required to keep your warranty valid. Whilst it might be tempting to put off thoughts of all the costs involved, simply dealing with it as and when necessary, you can be sure that the older the vehicle gets, the more it will cost to service and maintain.
Budgeting is so much easier when you can wrap up all your servicing and maintenance costs into one easy to manage monthly payment. It means you can relax, safe in the knowledge that the amount you need to pay has been fixed for the entire duration of the contract. Our comprehensive maintenance package covers all of the costs involved in scheduled servicing routines, as well as mechanical and electrical repairs or replacements. Of course, we can’t cover anything which requires replacement due to misuse, but if any of the parts covered by your contract fails due to fair wear and tear, or a manufacturing fault, then we’ll get it repaired or replaced at no cost to you. This even includes like for like premium brand tyres.
Every year we carry out over 150,000 service and repairs nationwide. It’s a scale of operation that gives us immense buying power, without sacrificing quality workmanship. As a result, you can benefit from some of the most competitive prices available and the peace of mind that all work is conducted by accredited garages who only ever use fully approved parts. It works like this… When it’s time for a scheduled service, or if any repairs need doing, we’ll arrange for your vehicle to be picked up from your home or work address and deliver it to one of our quality approved garages. And if you need a courtesy car, we’ll get that arranged for you as well. The whole process won’t take long because your package includes preferential booking times and, if the repair is urgent, we’ll make sure it gets prioritised. Either way, we’ll keep you informed every step of the way. Then, once the work’s complete, we’ll get it straight back to you. It really couldn’t be easier.
No matter how well your vehicle is maintained, there’s always the chance of an unexpected parts failure. If this happens to you, you’ll want someone you can rely on to help you get back on the road as quickly possible. So to give you the best possible service and support, our comprehensive Roadside Assistance Plan is delivered by the AA.
