Motor Industry Code of PracticeSome advice for our customers…

Most newer cars now have the advantage of extended service intervals. This can save you money on servicing but sometimes can be false economy as other items normally checked on a service, such as brakes and tyres, can wear out before the service is due. Here at Lakeside we offer a free 15 point check to all customers. If your car is between services then why not take advantage of it. We can check over your car and top up your levels at the same time if needed.

It is worth remembering that we already have many customers who rely on us to look after their brand new vehicles. Under European “Block Exemption Law” it is now possible to take your car to any independent Garage for servicing as long as they use the manufacturers equivalent fitment parts and have performed theservice to the correct schedule. We have access to all manufacturers service schedules to ensure your warranty stays valid. The office of fair trading has carried out research to show that servicing your car at an independent could save you up to 40% against dealer prices. Not forgetting the convenience of using us over a dealer; Free collection and delivery, Mini Valet with every full service and a half price MOT with every full service.
