Car Servicing



It’s important to service your car every year, to ensure it’s in good running order and to maximise the lifespan of your car. Did you know that servicing your car could actually cut your running costs, a clogged air filter alone can reduce your fuel efficiency by a massive 10 per cent! Everyone of our Car Care Centres is Unipart Approved and a member of the Motor Ombudsman programme.

SERVICE PACKAGESNationwide Guarantee

Our nationwide network of approved independent garages can provide a manufacturers recommended service to suit the precise needs of your vehicle based upon age and mileage, a service that you would get from a Vehicle Manufacturers Dealer but without the higher labour rates that some Dealers charge. Contact us now and we’ll be happy to provide you with a quotation. Alternatively we can offer ‘menu priced’ service packages offering exceptional value for money.

Interim Service: Primarily for high mileage vehicles, to be carried out every 6 months or 6000 miles. Alongside an oil and filter change we will check those parts that are most likely to require attention within a 6 month period.

Full Service: Recommended every 12 months or 12,000 miles, incorporating over 50 separate checks to keep your car in excellent working order.

Major Service: Our most comprehensive service package designed to be carried out every two years or 24,000 miles.

The cost of your service will depend on the engine size of your vehicle and the type of oil required:

If your vehicle requires specialist or synthetic oil an extra charge will apply. Consult your handbook for the correct grade of oil for your vehicle or contact us and we will be happy to assist.


If your vehicle is still under manufacturer's warranty, you can bring it to us for a manufacturers recommended service, MOT or repairs without worrying. All Unipart Car Parts are certified as Original Equipment Matching Quality. Not only do these parts promise superior performance and great value-for-money, but your warranty won't be invalidated when we fit them.


We're so confident in the quality of our parts that we offer a 12 month or 12,000 mile nationwide guarantee on every part and the labour involved in fitting it.

This means that should anything go wrong with the parts we've fitted, or the way we've fitted it during the guarantee period, you can take your car to any of our nationwide network of Unipart Car Care Centres, and we'll fix the problem at no extra charge.
