Frequently Asked Questions

1. How Much Does It Cost To Have An MOT?

Prices for an MOT will vary depending on the garage and MOT centres, but at Simply Serviced we offer competitive transparent prices for all MOT’s. £40 or £25 if with a service. Feel free to book online your MOT now at our Colchester garage.

2. What Documents Do You Need To Take For An MOT?

Before attending your MOT with us, it would be helpful to have both your current valid MOT certificate and V5C Vehicle Registration Document with you. However if you can’t find either of these, we should be able to find your details on our system. Most customers forget their vehicle registration number so don’t worry!

3. Should You Use A Dealership Or An Independent For Car Servicing?

You can use either and both have for’s and against’s. As a general rule the dealership will be more expensive however they will have specific knowledge and advice on their brand. The independent Colchester garages will generally offer better value but sometimes may lack some specific vehicle knowledge. At Simply Service each of our helpful team come from different manufacturer backgrounds so we have a massive amount of shared knowledge amongst our team and therefore can offer you great advice.

4. How Long Does A Car Service Take?

Typically a car service will take between an hour to three or four hours depending on what service and what the car is. At Simply Serviced most customers drop their car off in the morning and collect it later however we can offer specific appointment time for the smaller services.  We also offer a free collection and delivery service and have courtesy cars but please book in advance a date for these as they do get booked up quickly. Unfortunatley we are not within walking distance of the main Colchester town centre.

5. Is An MOT Test The Same As Having A Service?

No, an MOT test is definitely not a service. An MOT test is a visual inspection of road worthiness and does not cover changing any of your car’s serviceable items. You ideally should have both a car service and a MOT test each year. If you can combine them both then there’s a small cost saving when done by us.

6. How Much Does A Car Service Cost?

Car servicing doesn’t have to be expensive and is certainly cheaper than the repair bill for not servicing your car. Our services start from just £140 so its really affordable and gives you the piece of mind that your car has been inspected by a trained qualified technician. You can book online with the garage directly and we accept online payments.

7. Can A Car Service Improve Its Performance?

Yes, a well maintained car with regular servicing will perform better in every area. Not only will it’s speed performance be maintained but also improved braking, tyre handling and fuel economy.

8. Does Not Using Your Car's Main Dealer For A Service Void Your Warranty?

No, you can have your vehicle serviced anywhere as long as they follow the exact manufacturers schedule and use the correct parts and oils. They don’t have to use the manufacturers parts but they must be of original equipment quality.
