What is a service?
A vehicle service is a routine health check with maintenance to ensure your vehicle is in a reliable, safe and fully-functioning condition, based on the guidelines set out by the vehicle manufacturer. At Listers, our highly-trained technicians will look at the condition of your vehicle and check for wear and tear to brakes, oil filters and the engine belt. As well as the many other systems and component checks, they will also recommend parts replacements where required, which might save you money in the long run.
Is a service the same as an MOT?
No. An MOT, also known as the Ministry of Transport test, is a visual inspection and is required by law once a year, to determine whether the vehicle meets the minimum road safety requirements set out by the DVSA. MOT checks include brakes, lights, tyres, seatbelts and much more.
A service is recommended to maintain the health condition of your vehicle and prolong its lifespan and value.
Both seem very similar, right? However, they both look at different parts of the vehicle and the service is more in-depth.
