Car Servicing in Normacot

Here at Alhambra Garage in Stoke-on-Trent, we pride ourselves on being servicing specialists and work with you to find the best value and quality by offering a selection of genuine and third party parts. We are also proud to provide dealership standard diagnostics – at a fraction of the price. With most makes and models, your vehicle’s dash or infotainment system will alert you when your vehicle is due a service.

What’s included in a service?

A regular car service checks the condition of your car. It can assess everything from general wear and tear to fluids, brakes, the engine, and more. Each service is different depending on your make and model. A car service can involve up to 50 or more components, systems checks and adjustments.

Why should I have my vehicle serviced?

“But I’ve just had an MOT, why do I need to have my car serviced too?!” But servicing is actually completely different to an MOT. An MOT is an annual technical inspection for safety – it’s not designed to replace or repair worn vehicle components.

Free Collection Service: When booking a Service we’ll happily pick up your vehicle from home or your workplace (if located within a 5-mile radius) of the garage. A free service is now available please call: 01782 335523
